Watch as Rallygoers Get Up and Leave During Trump’s Boring and Hateful Louisiana Speech, ‘It Must Suck to be That Dumb!’

Donald Trump urged supporters in Monroe, Louisiana, Wednesday night to cast their ballot early for Republican businessman Eddie Rispone, who is challenging Democratic incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards in a Nov. 16 runoff election.

“I’m here for early voting,” Trump said, before hinting he would return to Louisiana, a state he won by nearly 20 points in 2016, next week to stump for Rispone in what would be Trump’s third trip to the state in a month.

Trump railed against the “deranged, delusional, destructive” impeachment drive by House Democrats, warning that they are becoming “increasingly totalitarian” by “suppressing dissent, defaming the innocent, eliminating due process, staging show trials and trying to overthrow American democracy to impose their socialist agenda.”

He said the impeachment inquiry would benefit him in his re-election bid, and decried a whistleblower who launched the impeachment inquiry against him over a July 25 phone call in which he asked the Ukrainian president dig up political dirt on Democrats.

He read out a 2017 tweet from one of the lawyers representing the whistleblower, Mark Zaid, who was reacting to Trump’s dismissal of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates at the time. The tweet, which resurfaced in a Fox News story earlier today, referenced a “coup” and said “impeachment would follow.” Trump has accused Democrats of plotting to illegally remove him from office.

In an emailed statement, Zaid said: “I have zero Democrat ties. In the time since that tweet was posted, I’ve probably represented more Republicans, including [White House] officials, than Democrats.”

“This is nothing more than the continuing partisan deflection to desperately avoid discussing the substance of my client’s whistleblower complaint,” he added.

Sen. John Kennedy was brought on stage at one point and said Rep. Nancy Pelosi was “dumb.”

For the most part Trump’s speech was typical Trump, and because we have all seen his schtick before, it’s just getting boring.

So boring, that reporters witnessed many people just leaving…in the middle of the rally.
