WATCH: Media Triggered Over Trump’s ‘Vindictive Impeachment Victory Lap’

The Democratic Party has spent the past four years cooking up anything they can to use as grist with which to impeach President Donald Trump. Now that Trump has been acquitted by the Senate, the mainstream media are clutching their pearls over the president’s “vindictive impeachment victory lap.”
Writing at CNN, Kevin Liptak lamented how President Trump gave a victory speech on Thursday that was “vindictive and angry.”
“There was no indication he planned to adopt a new approach following the ordeal. Instead, Trump spent more than an hour bouncing between disparate injustices and angry asides,” lamented Liptak.
“The formal White House event was meant to be the final word on the impeachment saga. But few expect the ordeal to fade from view; Trump is stung and angry at being impeached by the House and his allies say it’s unlikely he’ll let it go anytime soon,” he later added.
Speaking in the White House East Room, President Trump rightly minced no words in the wake of the Democratic Party’s failed attempt to forcefully remove him from office, denouncing the leading Democrats as “dirty cops” who enacted a plan that was both “evil” and “corrupt.”
“We’ve been going through this now for over three years,” the president said. “It was evil, it was corrupt, it was dirty cops, it was leakers and liars. And this should never, ever happen to another president, ever.”
On CNN, Brianna Keilar referred to the president’s remarks as “unscripted” and “vindictive,” adding that it was “at times profane” and “angry.”
“An avalanche of grievances … It was vindictive … it was mean-spirited, it was poisonous, it was spiteful,” said Gloria Borger. Take a look:
Keiler, "You have been watching the President .... with an unscripted, vindictive, at times profane, angry, rambling response to his impeachment acquittal.

Borger: "An avalanche of grievances ... It was vindictive...it was mean-spirited, it was poisonous, it was spiteful."

Also at CNN, John Harwood fretted over the darkness of Trump’s speech, asserting that it offered a glimpse into the dark depths of his mind.
“This was a very disturbing tableau for the country. It was dark because he’s made clear that his mind is dark,” said Harwood. “This is somebody in deep psychological distress right now. Self-pitying, insecure, angry.”
“With Donald Trump, if he did it, it’s not wrong. He doesn’t recognize abstract concepts like right and wrong, like morality or immorality, like true or false, he recognizes what is good for him in the moment,” Harwood continued. “And what has happened … what Mitt Romney has done by casting that vote, what Nancy Pelosi has done, has felt very, very unpleasant to him.”
Marina Fang of HuffPost referred to the moment as a “horror show in the East Room,” lamenting the president’s “improvisational ramblings that appeared more like fascist propaganda than a White House event.”

“As the former reality television host walked to his lectern, he received a standing ovation while ‘Hail to the Chief’ played, before launching into an unhinged riff targeting some of his favorite and most frequently mentioned subjects, listing them off in a Mad Libs-like frenzy,” wrote Fang. “The speech, which resembled his ad-libbed campaign rallies, was held in the East Room, typically reserved for more measured and sometimes somber official White House events.”
