Yesterday, thousands of supporters lined up in the rain to get into President Trump’s rally in Pennsylvania. They ignored the two articles of impeachment against the president that House Democrats unveiled earlier in the day.
Questioned about how they feel over the latest development in the impeachment inquiry, Trump supporters at the rally expressed their anger, using the word “fed up” when referring to the Democrats and the impeachment.
“I think this is going to help him, and the election. People are fed up with the Democrats, how they’re acting,” one woman wearing “Make America Great Again” hat told NBC News.
One man, with his hat and pin bearing the same slogan “Make America Great Again,” said the impeachment never deters him. Instead, every act of the Democrats motivates him “to make another $25 donation to the campaign.”
“I swear as long as I live I will never vote for a Democrat again,” he said, adding: “I don’t care if it’s my best friend or a relative of mine. I will never vote for a Democrat as long as I live.”
A third supporter wearing red, white, and blue strings on her hat said she was “breaking up” over the news of the impeachment articles, which charge the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.
“And I’m very upset today,” she said. “I’m glad I’m here. But I think it’s so hard because he’s done such a great job and this is the way that he’s being treated. It’s very upsetting to me.”
In the back, one man in a Santa-cowboy hat holding a banner, which said, “Trump’s front row Joes” with a wolf image.
Last night, during the rally, President Trump mocked Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying they’re “embarrassed” by “impeachment light” and he promised it would lead to his re-election in 2020.
“This is the lightest, weakest impeachment that our country’s had … everybody says this is impeachment light, this is the lightest impeachment in the history of our country by far,” The president said, reported the Breitbart News. “This has to be a first in history. They’re impeaching me, and you know why, because they want to win an election.”
