That a lot of people wouldn’t have said

I’ve almost finished with the Trump-excoriation for now, but not quite.

Politico reports:

Later Thursday, at a victory lap celebrating his impeachment acquittal, Trump said: “I had Nancy Pelosi sitting four seats away, and I’m saying things that a lot of people wouldn’t have said. But I meant everything. I meant every word of it.”

Beware of people who brag about saying things that a lot of people wouldn’t have said. Beware beware beware. Doing that is a sure sign of someone who is both an egomaniac and a rude bully. Turn around and walk swiftly away.

“I don’t need any lessons from anybody, especially the president of the United States, about dignity,” Pelosi said Thursday, adding she feels “liberated” now. “I feel that I’ve extended every possible courtesy, I’ve shown every level of respect.”

And Pelosi said she and other Democrats thought that when Trump’s State of the Union speech veered into talking about a “special” and “beloved” man battling cancer that he was going to honor Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a civil rights icon who is battling advanced pancreatic cancer.

Instead, Trump meant Rush Limbaugh, a conservative radio host who has been accused of making racist, sexist and anti-LGBTQ remarks on his show. Trump awarded Limbaugh, who has advanced lung cancer, with the Presidential Medal of Freedom — the nation’s highest civilian honor — in the middle of his annual address.

Ouch. I didn’t know that part.

“Do it in your own office. We don’t come in your office and do congressional business. Why are you doing that here?” Pelosi said. “That was not a State of the Union, that was his state of mind.”

To rub our noses in it, probably.
