Acquitted For Life.

Now that President Donald Trump has been acquitted of any crime by the Senate, the man himself used the first available opportunity to speak out on what the mainstream media and those who oppose his efforts have done to him and his family.
“As everybody knows, my family, our great country, and your president have been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people,” Trump said. “They have done everything possible to destroy us and by so doing, very badly hurt our nation. They know what they are doing is wrong, but they put themselves far ahead of our great country.”
“Weeks ago, and again yesterday, courageous Republican politicians and leaders had the wisdom, fortitude and strength to do what everyone knows was right,” he continued.
Now that the ordeal is over, Trump spoke more freely about the hypocrisy that so many people of faith see in those who hoard leadership roles in partisan politics.
In an apparent shot at both Pelosi, D-Calif., and Romney, Trump said: “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know that that’s not so.”
“So many people have been hurt and we can’t let that go on,” he continued. “And I’ll be discussing that a little bit later at the White House.”
This stance was a departure from the usual congeniality of the National Prayer Breakfast. Normally, lawmakers and foreign dignitaries get together to pray and be cordial through all the differences. This time, though, the president was celebrating a triumph over a political stunt that was purely partisan and was designed to negate the will of the people when it came to electing leadership. For the opposition, it backfired, and just how much has yet to be determined.
