King Trump takes full credit for Johnson win in surreal victory speech (video)

After Donald Trump's embarrassing misstep in endorsing failed nominee Gym Jordan, he now takes full credit for the GOP's newly elected House speaker, Rep. Mike Johnson (LA).

"I just want to congratulate Mike Johnson. He will be a great Speaker of the House, and we were very happy to have helped," said the four-times indicted MAGA boss. "I've known him for a long time. He's a tremendous leader and a tremendous man."

"At this time yesterday, nobody was thinking of Mike. And then we put out the word," Trump continued, leaving listeners to guess at who the mysterious "we" might be.

"And now he's the Speaker of the House. So I want to just thank all of the supporters that I have, and I want to thank all the supporters that Mike has, and again, he'll be a great Speaker. I think you're going to be very proud." (See video below, posted by The Recount.)

And as bizarre as his victory speech was, you can bet all of his stupefied disciples ate it up with tears of pride and joy in their eyes. Where's that gag order when you need it?
