President Trump is about to deliver a speech in Rochester, Minnesota. Follow me for a video thread.
TRUMP smears DEMOCRATS: "They want to erase our gains and plunge our country into a nightmare of gridlock, poverty, chaos, and frankly, crime. Because that's what comes with it."

Crowd responds with "Drain the swamp!" chants.

Trump then prompts crowd to boo the media.
After Trump mentions Kavanaugh, crowd breaks out in "We want Kav-a-naugh!" chants.
Trump says he "wants crystal clear air." #wut
A tired-sounding Trump says Dems are "willing to do anything, to hurt anyone to get the power they so desperately want. They want to resist, they want to obstruct, they want to delay, demolish, and destroy. That's what happens." #grim
aaaaaand Fox News pulls out of broadcasting the president's speech so we can listen to some talking heads instead
Trump smears @TinaSmithMN: "Nobody knows who the hell she is!"

He says this about Franken: "I don't want to mention his name, Al Franken. He was gone so fast. It was like 'oh he did something?' Oh, I resign I resign. I quit!"

Says Franken "folded like wet blanket." Mocks Smith.
Karin Housley takes a dig at Trump!

"He said Tina Smith way too many times, we need to say 'Karin Housley' a lot more."
.@RepJasonLewis : "The radical resisters have to come through Minnesota first. And this is where it stops." [crickets]
TRUMP: "Who the hell is @AngieCraigMN?"

(He's said the same thing about both Minnesota Democratic women he's mentioned tonight -- smearing them for allegedly being anonymous.)
WOW -- Trump on how he'll pay for health coverage for people with preexisting conditions: "We'll get a little bit more money from China. We'll be fine. We'll be fine."
Keith Ellison -- the first Muslim in Congress -- gets by far the biggest boos of the night from Trump supporters in Rochester, Minnesota
LOL -- Trump's reminisces about his 2016 sales pitch to Minnesota: "We're gonna take care of Minnesota, we're gonna stop what's happening that's so unfair in Minnesota." #wut
TRUMP on AFRICAN AMERICANS: "I've done more for them in two years-- African Americans are coming up and they're saying, "thank you. thank you.'" 😳
Trump claims that all he has to do is ask foreign leaders is ask them to increase their military spending and they'll do it, because nobody has asked them before. #PresidentDeals
Trump goes on a nonsensical rant about Kim Jong Un
Trump says he could beat Vladimir Putin in a boxing match.
Trump claims "good people" have helped keep health care premiums down, says of Obamacare, "I don't even like the stuff."

Stuff?
Trump mentions Hillary Clinton during one of his rants, all the due process fans in the audience immediately breaks out in "Lock her up!" chants.
Note how Trump talks to his fans like they're young children and he's their dad. Everything is very black and white.
Trump's "Space Force" hype isn't getting over with his fans like it did a few months ago. Not getting much of a response.
Trump claims NFL has "a big, big problem" w/Canada b/c of "their advertising during the commercials." #wut

He claims he told Canada during trade negotiations: "You gotta fix the NFL problem. And now the NFL is so happy"

He claims @nflcommish called him personally to thank him!
Trump is completely off his rocker. Listen to this rant about some previously unknown deal with Canada about NFL advertising rates.
Trump slurs heavily as he tries to give Karin Housley one more shoutout
TRUMP: "*Loyal citizens* like you helped build this country, and together we are taking back our country."

"Loyal" does a lot of work there.
Trump wraps up a long speech that was a bit of a struggle for him to get through tonight
Trump suggesting that Al Franken shouldn’t have resigned so quickly for sexual misconduct was a telling moment
