Trump Says ‘Slovenly’ Joe Crowley ‘Got His Ass Kicked’ by ‘Young Woman’ With ‘Energy’

President Donald Trump gave a shoutout to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for unseating career politician Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th district – but not for good reason.

“One of my biggest critics, a slovenly man named Joe Crowley, got his ass kicked,” Trump said to booming approval from the crowd.

“By a young woman who had a lot of energy,” he said of Ocasio-Cortez. “She had a lot of energy!”

“He spent a lot of money,” Trump continued. “He had a lot of money left over. Everyone was pouring a fortune… He was going to take [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi‘s place and I was so disappointed ’cause I want to keep Nancy Pelosi right where she is with [California Rep.] Maxine Waters.”

“Please, I want to make a plea to my Democrat friends: Please, please, please, don’t remove Nancy Pelosi,” he added. She should be where she is. And please keep Maxine Waters on the air as your face and your mouthpiece for the Democratic Party. Please.”

“Politics is a mean game, isn’t it?” Trump jeered. “It’s a fleeting game.”
