President Trump proudly displayed two newspapers with blaring “Acquitted” headlines Thursday morning, waving them before a National Prayer Breakfast audience in his first appearance since he was declared not guilty in his Senate impeachment trial.

The president waved the headlines mere feet from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after both arrived at the breakfast.

Trump first picked up a USA Today newspaper and presented it before the audience. He then put it down and picked up a copy of Thursday’s Washington Post, which had a similar headline.

He later addressed the audience and took some not-so-subtle swipes at Pelosi once more.

“I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong, nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when you know that is not so,” he said. Pelosi had publicly said during the impeachment process that she and fellow Democrats were “prayerful” and that she prays for the president.

Trump also called impeachment a “terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people.”

This is a stark blow to both the Democrats and their leader Nancy Pelosi. The acquittal which was almost sure seeing that the 20 Republicans (who are currently the senate majority) were not going to vote to convict and remove the 45th president.

We await a press conference from president Trump today at 12NOON EST. as he will discuss what he calls “our Country’s VICTORY on the Impeachment Hoax”.

Tensions are high and there are a lot of defeated politicians. What will sweep Washington next?
