John Carlson "livecasts" this morning's Pres. Trump press conference about his Senate acquittal yesterday, as we await the start of Trump's press conference we discuss a new KING 5 poll that shows some re-election vulnerability for WA Gov. Jay Inslee.

Majority Leader McConnell adding that 191 federal judges have been approved during his term, Trump adds an aside about McConnell being tough to read that draws crowd laughter, Trump revisits his comments this morning aimed at Speaker Pelosi during today's National Prayer Breakfast, praises UT Sen. Mike Lee and criticizes Sen. Mitt Romney, says Pelosi and Schiff are "vicious as hell", lists Hunter Biden's alleged transgressions, segues into opportunity cost of impeachment for Democrats, says Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy will be Speaker of the House because of acquittal coming back to bite Democrats.
