Trump accidentally says Democrats will receive an impeachment ‘backlash at the box office’

Who would have taken President Trump for a box office prognosticator?

He briefly became one with a gaffe at his Wednesday night rally occurring at the same time that the House of Representatives passed articles of impeachment charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The president meant to declare that Democrats will experience a backlash in the 2020 election as a result, but instead, he briefly got the worlds of entertainment and politics all mixed up.

“They’ll receive a big backlash at the box office,” Trump said of House Democrats, clearly trying to casually correct himself moments later by referencing “that ballot box on November 3rd” as if that’s what he said the first time.
