During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning, President Donald Trump completely humiliated himself while discussing the House impeachment inquiry.
Earlier this week, when asked about public hearings related to the inquiry, Trump rattled off several prepared lines, telling reporters:
“I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. That means it’s all over.”

But Trump said exactly the opposite of that Friday, telling the Fox hosts:
“I do want, always, corruption — I say that to anybody!”

Trump later today: When I said “always” I meant ….people are saying I said i want corruption, but Hillary’s emails. So when I said always what I really meant was that windmills do cause cancer, and solar energy doesn’t work in the dark
