In a new interview this week, former President Donald Trump lashed out at Joe Biden and Mitch McConnell, among others.
“He looks fragile up there. He’s not a long-ball hitter. I can tell you that. He does not hit the long ball,” Trump told The Federalist of Biden. “It’s hard to watch. I mean, to be honest with you, it’s hard to watch. You’re on pins and needles. ‘Cause you just don’t know. When does the blow-up occur? He’s not the sharpest guy.”
Trump went on to talk about how deferential the press has been to Biden, specifically about when he fell down three times while walking up the stairs to board Air Force One.
“How come it wasn’t covered on the evening news?” Trump questioned. “They’re almost apologizing for asking even an easy question. It’s incredible. You didn’t see that too much with me. The apologies, you know, it was a little bit different with me.”
“It’s just like they’re one amorphous monster,” he added, referring to the corporate press. “Just horrible. Almost uniformly.”
Trump also doubled down on his claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
“George Washington, with Abraham Lincoln as his running mate, could not have beaten me. I was up so much,” he said.
Trump added that his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton repeatedly said that he was an “illegitimate” president, yet the media never attacked her for it. Instead, they helped her out by spreading the lie that he stole the election by colluding with Russia.
“We got them by surprise the first time,” Trump said, explaining hoe how he was allowed to win in 2016 but not in 2020. “And the second time, they spent four years working on rigging the election. They were willing to do anything they could, and it started from the day I took office or before I took office. It started from right after the election with the Russia hoax.”
Trump then shifted to attacking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“Well, they used COVID to rig the election. There was nothing I could do,” Trump said. “They were using COVID and the Republicans have bad leadership with guys like Mitch McConnell. And they allowed them to give these hundred million ballots out.”
Trump was aware that many of the changes made to how the election worked were unconstitutional.
“The constitution of the United States says you cannot change any of your rules, regulations, or anything else, unless you go through the state legislatures,” he said.
When asked about going into politics late in life, Trump said, You know, it’s very interesting. People think I have a good time. I could do without it. I could do without, you know, standing up there for an hour and doing what I do, but I like getting the word out. I think it’s important to get the word out because the press doesn’t put it out.”
