Bright Red and Sweaty Trump Suggests Former Democratic Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson is in Hell

Donald Trump is holding a rally where he is touting the strike on Iran’s Qassem Soleimani, as well as bashing Democratic candidates, as the Democratic presidential candidates take the stage for the seventh debate.

The rally also comes as the Senate readies itself for Trump’s impeachment trial, which is expected to begin on Tuesday, January 21.

After reminiscing about his 2016 win in the Badger State, and rattling off what he considers to be some of his greatest accomplishments on trade and jobs, the president launched into the story of the death of Soleimani. Soleimani’s death has been seamlessly rolled into the president’s campaign material.

“At my direction, the United States military launched a flawless precision strike that killed the world’s number one terrorist, number one terrorist,” the president told his enthusiastic audience. “You know who that is? Qassem Soleimani, number one terrorist in the world.”

The president also capitalized on the death of Soleimani to hit Democrats who questioned whether the death of Soleimani was good strategy for the U.S.

Trump also “joked” that he was never going to leave office, because who cares about the Constitution?

The president spent a chunk of his time criticizing the Democrats debating on stage Tuesday night, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren. Mr. Trump said he doesn’t believe the story that Sanders told Warren a woman couldn’t win the presidency, a story Sanders’ team says is incorrect.

“I don’t believe that Bernie said that, I really don’t,” the president told his supporters.

Then Trump said former President Lyndon B. Johnson could possibly be in hell:
