President Trump made a joke about Vice President Mike Pence getting involved in a hypothetical scandal while speaking to reporters at the White House Monday.
Trump was in a feisty mood answering questions about his embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He told gathered reporters that they count as “part of the Democrat Party” and detailed the sexual and stolen valor scandals of Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal and Cory Booker.
Trump then turned his aim to Dianne Feinstein, saying she sat on the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh were leaked for political purposes in the 11th hour.
In regard to Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony, Trump said, “I thought he was excellent. The interesting thing is, nobody asked them about what’s happened in the last 25 or 30 years during his professional career. Because there are no bad reports.”
Trump then said that there were bad reports about everyone in attendance at the press conference, which was initially called to announce the new trade deal reached between the United States, Mexico and Canada.
“I mean, there are bad reports on everybody in here. Most of the people sitting down — there are bad reports,” Trump said, pointing to the front row. “Except for Mike Pence, by the way. If we find one on him, that will be the greatest shock of all time. There are bad reports on everybody.”
Trump went on to say the Democrats accusing Kavanaugh were not “angels.”
“I watch those senators on the Democrat side and I thought it was a disgrace. Partially because I know them. I know them too well. You know what? They are not angels,” Trump said of the Senate Democrats.
