'Lock Her Up' and 'acid washed' also made a comeback in Trump's rally-rant.
“It was all an illegal attempt to overturn the election,” said President Donald Trump during a speech tonight, referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia interference in the 2016 elections.
This is, of course, false.
And, Trump almost certainly has not read the report.
The President rehashed a number of 'greatest hits' from his 2016 rally, including attacks on Hillary Clinton, and urged his fans to come to Washington, DC on July 4th.
"Come on down," he says. "Bring your flags. We're going to celebrate America.”
Observations from Twitter as Trump's bizarre but predictably so hate rally aired, below.
Donald Trump is still talking about “crooked Hillary” as though Hillary Clinton is still his opponent. If this wasn’t mostly reflex, you could see a certain logic here: no Democrat actually running is currently as loathed by his base as Clinton continues to be.

Trump: They are really going after you...They tried to erase you vote and the election—probably the greatest in our country...They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it. Not acceptable. It’s not going to happen.”

....and he's on the acid washed thing again.

Minutes after reveling in a "lock her up" chant, Trump says Democrats would "use the power of the law to punish their opponents"

Monitoring @FoxNews, which appears to be the only network covering President Trump’s rally live, and he has been airing his grievances about Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails for quite some time. The President says if he had done what Clinton did he would have been executed.

CNN has no idea how to cover this President. They’re torn between capitulation (cover event where journos are mocked), sucking up (“Melania Woman of Mystery”) and ignoring (cut away after 6 mins.). Net/net: a hot mess. https://t.co/cnUw9wfhIk
