President Trump held a rally on Tuesday in Iowa where he took it upon himself to have a little bit of fun at Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s expense for her horrific handling of the uncorroborated sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump was doing what he does best, which is fire up his base supporters by slapping Democrats around for their ineptitude, including taking shots at Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, when he then set his sights on Feinstein.
“How about Sen. Feinstein? That’s another beauty,” Trump said, the crowd responding with boos and groans. “That’s a beauty!” he repeated (video below).Advertisement - story continues below
“Did you leak the documents?” Trump asked, acting out the scene. “Wha, wha, what? No, I didn’t!’ said Trump-as-Feinstein. He then imitated her backward glance at her staff. “Did we leak? Did we leak?” he said.
“No! No! No, we didn’t!” he said, turning back to the imagined committee. “No, no. He just said no, we didn’t leak.”Trending:
That’s when the “Lock Her Up!” chants began, an echo of the anti-Hillary chants frequently heard back in 2016.
“I think they’re talking about Feinstein!” Trump said in response. “Can you believe that?” he added with a laugh.Advertisement - story continues below
He went on to point out that if we’re talking about body language, Feinstein’s was “the worst.”
“In other words, did she leak it? 100 percent!” he said, adding, “No, I don’t want to get sued. 99 percent. See? Now I can’t get sued.”

President Trump really knows how to connect with his supporters, which is a lesson other conservative politicians desperately need to learn because the vast majority are out of touch with their own constituents.
They seem to mistake repeatedly being voted for and winning elections for being well connected with the people they represent. Not so. It’s mostly that the voters just don’t want the alternative.
Let’s hope that an investigation into Feinstein reveals the truth and that she in some form is held accountable for any wrongdoing she may have participated in.
