Trump, speaking at rally in Montana, on Democratic opposition to Kavanaugh: "Sick. It's sick."
TRUMP: "Please welcome the person that we have such respect for, he is now leading in the polls... Matt Rosendale."

Hannity cuts away to talking heads instead of showing Rosendale's speech.
Trump on what will happen if Montana voters vote for Tester: "You are going to lose your 2nd amendment. You are going to lose your right to those guns. You are going to lose your 2nd amendment, so be careful... you are going to lose your Social Security so badly." #gaslighting
LOL! Trump's drops Ronny Jackson's name, only to discover his supporters have already forgotten who he is.

(He's the doctor who lied about Trump's annual medical examination earlier this year.)
TRUMP, UNHINGED: "But Ronny Jackson is a doctor, he is actually the doctor that gave me my physical. And he said that I am in great shape. And the Democrats, liberals, deep state, they were very upset to hear that. So they got tougher & tougher and they write more books now."
Trump sounds completely out of his mind: "Ronny Jackson is a great man. Ronny Jackson has led a great & beautiful life. And to have lies told about him, I would never repeat what they are. In my case, they repeat them... do we love Sean Hannity?"

The crowd is in stunned silence.
Trump is slurring heavily & making less sense than normal. In this clip he pivots from bashing the media, to praising Ben Carson, to bragging about beating "the Bush dynasty," to talking about "Crooked Hillary," all within 90 seconds.
Trump's supporters don't know how to respond to this. He's trying to make sense but not quite doing so. This is as rough as he's sounded during a speech.
Trump's backdrop is a sea of white people
Trump admits he blackmailed NATO members with prospect of breaking America's treaty obligations unless they immediately agreed to spend more on their militaries.
Trump is out of his mind. Listen to this.
TRUMP: "They like to use the 'impeach' word. Maxine Waters, 'We will impeach him.' 'But he didn't do anything wrong.' 'It doesn't matter, we will impeach him.' But I say, how do you impeach somebody that is doing a great job and has not done anything wrong? Our economy is good."
Trump, slurring, on what will happen if he's impeached: "You have a country that's going to turn into a 3rd world country. Because if the opposite party becomes president... they will say 'We want to impeach him!' And you will impeach him. It is so ridiculous."
Trump is struggling to talk. Here, he repeatedly fails to say the word "anonymous."
TRUMP offers lunatic rant about California: "What happens, I said, if the entire world wants to go to California because 'I get free health care, & free medical care.' 'California just increased in size to 500 million people. California has just become one really large person.'"
Trump lies, claims he's already starting building the wall. (He hasn't received a cent from Congress for it.)
During pro wrestling-style @foxandfriends interview that took place at the rally on Montana, Trump lies about the border wall, claims, "so we started the wall."

(Trump has in fact been appropriated $0 for wall construction.)
.@PeteHegseth: "From Kaepernick to the NFL &now Nike, who's going to win this cultural showdown of standing for the anthem?"

TRUMP: "We are...honestly, I don't know what the NFL is doing. From what I understand, it's in contracts that you have to stand for the anthem" (it's not)
TRUMP: "A very nice statement came out from North Korea. You won't read that in the papers because, when it's nice, they don't put it in. Kim Jong Un said very nice things. He said 'we want to get denuclearization during Trump administration.' Just came out. Nice, very nice."
Trump on damaging NYT op-ed written by anonymous official: "What they have done is virtually treason...The White House is truly as you would say a well-oiled machine...When somebody writes & you have no idea who they are, it may not be a Republican, it may be a deep-state person"
Trump on possibly shutting down the government unless he gets money for the wall: "We are getting the wall done but I have had so many people, they'd rather do it right after the election... if it was up to me, I'd shut down government over border security in a second."

TRUMP: "[Haley] has been at the UN right from the beginning, & worked w/us on the campaign...it has been a long time, very intense & she told me probably six months ago, 'you know maybe at the end of a 2-year period, but at the end of the year I want to take a little time off.'"
HALEY: "I'm such a lucky girl to have been able to lead the state that raised me and to serve a country I love so very much has really been a blessing, and I want to thank you for that... the US Is strong again. The US is strong in a way it should make all Americans proud."
Nikki Haley describes Jared Kushner as "a hidden genius that no one understands."

TRUMP on Rod Rosenstein: "I actually have a good relationship other than, there's been no collusion folks!"
TRUMP attacks Democrats over Kavanaugh process: "The way they tortured him and his family, I thought it was a disgrace. It was one of the most disgraceful performances I've ever seen."

He then lies and says "there was no corroboration of any kind" for Dr Ford's accusation.
TRUMP: "I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican because I have many friends that are Democrats. The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela...I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican on Nov. 6."

Trump is about to deliver a speech in Topeka. Follow me for a video thread.
TRUMP: "I want to thank our incredible Republican senators for refusing to back down in the face of the Democrats' shameless campaign of political & personal destruction... radical Democrats launched a disgraceful campaign to resist & demolish right from the beginning."
TRUMP: "If you allow wrong people to get into office, things could change. They could change fast. We will not let that happen. It can go very quickly. We cannot let that happen. You don't hand matches to an arsonist and you don't get power to an angry left-wing mob."

Ahead of @SenatorCollins' speech on the Senate floor, protesters chant "believe women!" from the gallery
COLLINS is using her speech to criticize opponents of Kavanaugh as "frenzied," "spreading outright falsehoods," and representing "special interest groups."
COLLINS: "The president has broad discretion to consider a nominee's philosophy, whereas my duty as a senator is to focus on the nominee's qualifications as long as that nominee's philosophy is within the mainstream."

It sure sounds like she is going to announce a yes vote.

.@ChuckGrassley, who is struggling to read a statement on the Senate floor, baselessly accuses @SenFeinstein of "shameful" handling of Dr Ford's accusation because she didn't violate Ford's wishes and make an issue of it immediately
Grassley flat out lies, claims Ford's accusations are "refuted."
Grassley, getting angry, says "resistance" in a very odd way, closes by urging senators to "say no to mob rule by voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh." #wut
