President Donald Trump said at a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan, Wednesday night that he was “having a good time” even as he took aim at the Democrats’ unprecedented vote to impeach him while charging him with no crime.
Thinking back on Richard Nixon, the last Republican to face impeachment, Trump said, “I just see it as a very dark era.”
By contrast, Democrats now “don’t even have any crime, this is the first impeachment where there’s no crime!”
“I don’t know about you, but I’m having a good time, it’s crazy,” he added, as thousands of his supporters in the important swing state loudly cheered.
“It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached,” the president said. “The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong … and we have tremendous support in the Republican Party like we’ve never had before.”
“I’m not worried. I’m not worried. Because it’s always good when you don’t do anything wrong, you get impeached,” Trump assured his rally attendees. “That may be a record that will last forever.”
