Trump Florida Rally Crowd Chants 'Bulls**t' as President Claims 'Maniacs' Are Pushing 'Deranged Impeachment'

President Donald Trump referred to the ongoing impeachment hearings as "bulls**t" in his speech on Tuesday evening at a rally in Sunrise, Florida, telling the crowd that impeachment proceedings were a "witch hunt, just like before."

"The radical left Democrats are trying to rip our nation apart," Trump said. "First, it was the Russia hoax, total hoax, and the biggest fraud in the history of our country. Then it was the Mueller deal, remember that mess? They had nothing. Two years and $45 million spent, and the real cost is many times that number."

"Now, the same maniacs are pushing the deranged impeachment," the president continued. "A witch hunt, the same as before. A lot of bad things are happening to them. And you see what's happening in the polls?"

He added: "A lot of people said, 'that's really bullshit.'"

The crowd responded with a thunderous round of applause and chants of "bulls**t" that lasted for a few seconds.

Trump also insinuated that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about the infamous phone call between Trump and Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelinzkiy.

"Schiff made up my statement to the Ukrainian president," Trump said. "Their crimes are being revealed and their sinister plans are failing in ways that nobody ever believed possible."

While speaking about Hunter Biden's alleged lack of experience in the energy business while working for the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, the president asked someone in the audience what field of business they were in.

Trump originally thought the person said "mailboxes," but Trump had not heard the person correctly. "Oh, bail bonds," Trump said after being corrected. "Did you know Sleepy Joe [Biden]? Do you know Hunter Biden? Do you know anything about energy?"

After presumably receiving a negative response to his question, the president said, "Then you know much more about energy than Hunter Biden."

That attendee later became visibly ill, causing Trump to pause his speech and call for a doctor from the podium. When help arrived, Trump acknowledged the presence of firefighters. He also told the ill person to "come on back if you're feeling well" after receiving treatment.

Pointing at the television cameras on the floor of the arena, Trump referred to CNN as "stupid, horrible" and "corrupt." After he said the news network's ratings were "terrible," Trump laughed and said a camera light blinked off.

"We lose a small audience when I do that," he added. The Florida crowd responded by chanting "CNN sucks."

Trump also poked fun at the media coverage concerning his visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Initial news reports stated Trump had suffered a massive heart attack, but the president said he was only trying to get part of his yearly physical completed in advance.

"If I didn't feel great," Trump said, "I wouldn't be ranting to 21, 22,000 people with lots of people outside. If you've had a heart attack, you don't leave the hospital right away. You stay there for a little while, about six weeks maybe."
