Shortly after Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was sworn in as the 52nd Speaker of the House, President Donald Trump made an impromptu cameo at a White House press conference in what was clearly a desperate ploy for attention.

Trump began by congratulating Pelosi on becoming Speaker for the second time.


"I just want to start off by congratulating Nancy Pelosi on being elected Speaker of the House," Trump said. "It's a very, very great achievement, and hopefully we're going to work together and we're going to get lots of things done, like infrastructure and so much more."

The president then began rambling about the importance of a border wall.

"Without a wall you can not have border security," Trump said. "Without a very strong form of barrier, call it what you will, but without a wall you can't have border security. It won't work."

He continued by claiming without evidence that the public supports the construction of

"the wall or the barrier."

"I have never had so much support as I have in the last week over my stance on border security," Trump said. "I have never had anything like it in terms of calls coming in and people writing in and tweeting... I've never had this much support."

Watch below:

Conservative commentator Bill Kristol immediately called out Trump for his stunt.

"Donald Trump couldn't stand it that Nancy Pelosi was the center of attention today," Kristol said on CNN, "so he had to butt in at 4:30 in the afternoon. It's pretty disgraceful."

Twitter, not missing a beat, also panned Trump for being incapable of sharing the spotlight.

People are upset that the media indulged Trump.

They fall for it every time.

Everything has to be all about Trump, all the time.

Trump did not take any questions following his appearance, but boy do we have some.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
