Congress Donald Trump Impeachment WTF?!

Trump Thought He Could ‘Sue’ Congress For Daring To Impeach Him: Report

After the House of Representatives voted to impeach failed, one-term former president Donald Trump in 2019 for pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of his Democratic presidential rival, Joe Biden, the clueless Trump wanted to sue Congress for taking such an action, even though impeachment is clearly spelled out in the U.S. Constitution.

That, according to HuffPost, is one of the revelations in a new book from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.

“I’ll just sue Congress. They can’t do this to me,” Trump said, according to excerpts from Haberman’s book.

And that’s not the only head-shaking moment in Haberman’s book.

There was also a scene in debate prep when Trump humiliated himself, which seems to be the only thing he excels at.

The book also details comments by Trump during preparation for a debate in which former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus ― while pretending to be a transgender student ― asked the then-candidate if she could use the girls’ bathroom, CNN reported.

“I have a question, cocked or decocked?” Trump reportedly asked before receiving “blank stares” and making a “chopping gesture.”

“With cock or without cock?” he continued.

Confidence Man will be released on October 4.
