President Donald Trump creamed the glaring double standard between how the Department of Justice has treated former presidents in the situation of classified documents during a Save America rally on Sunday night in Mesa, Arizona.
“We call it the documents hoax case,” Trump quipped, drawing chuckles from the crowd.
He continued, “Or we could call it the warehouse case because many other presidents stored their millions of pages of stuff in unsecured warehouses, some of them without front doors that worked properly… Just look at how every other president has been treated when they left office – they’ve been treated beautifully. All they need to do is leave office and they get treated beautifully.”
Following the FBI’s shocking raid of his personal home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, Trump pointed out that no other president has ever endured such unprecedented investigations or accusations of “criminality.”
“Barack Hussein Obama moved more than 20 truckloads of over 33 million pages of documents – both classified and unclassified to a poorly built, totally unsafe…a furniture store located in a rather bad neighborhood in Chicago,” he said.
To Kari Lake, the GOP gubernatorial nominee for Arizona, he asked, “What do you think of that, Kari? A little double standard, perhaps?”
Trump further pointed out that former President George W. Bush had stored 68 million pages of documents in a warehouse in Texas, and added that Bush had also “lost 22 million White House emails” related to the Iraq invasion.
“They’re still looking for those 22 million pages,” Trump said.
He also brought up the claims that former President Bill Clinton had taken classified records out of the White House “in a sock.”
The crowd laughed and Trump added with a grin, “They found them in his sock drawer…”
