Senator Tim Scott

Senator Tim Scott, a Republican from South Carolina, stood up for former President Trump following his significant conviction in New York, engaging in a confrontation with a CNN anchor who accused his political colleague of seeking “revenge” against his political adversaries.

Former President Trump

“When former President Trump says that if he is elected president, he would appoint a special prosecutor to ‘go after the most corrupt president in the history of the United States of America, Joe Biden, and the entire Biden crime family,’ are you saying that that is not something that you would support?” asked CNN’s Abby Phillip.

Best revenge

“I’m simply saying that President Trump has said it himself,” Scott told Phillip. “The best revenge is success.”

To correct you

“Actually, Senator, I have to correct you on that,” Phillip said. “No, you can’t correct me on this, Abby,” Scott responded. “I’m looking at the notes right here,” she said.

You can look

“You can look at the notes, I was actually in his presence when he said it himself,” Scott shot back.

Town hall in South Carolina

When a voter at a town hall in South Carolina earlier this year inquired whether he would forgive “old scores” with political rivals, Trump responded that his “revenge will be success.”

The revenge thing

“I don’t care about the revenge thing,” Trump said. “I know they usually use the word ‘revenge.’ My revenge will be success,” he added.

Scott informed Phillip

“This is why the ratings on CNN are so low,” Scott informed Phillip afterward, following her repeated attempts to rectify claims made by Trump about his presidential campaign.

The bottom line

“The bottom line is simply this,” Scott said. “Without question, President Trump has looked me in my eyes in a room full of other folks and said, ‘You know what? The best revenge is success.’”

Presidential nomination

Scott, who was a contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, is being viewed as a potential vice-presidential candidate for Trump in the upcoming election.

Private room

“Senator, he may have said that to you in a private room, but he has said it to thousands of his supporters that he plans to go after his political enemies,” Phillip said. “I don’t understand how you can deny that he has said that publicly. It’s in the public record.”

Scott said

“I don’t know how you will not take my own word for what I heard with my own ears,” Scott said.

34 felony charges

Trump, who is expected to be the 2024 Republican candidate for president, was convicted on 34 felony charges related to falsifying business records concerning a hush money payment to Stormy Daniels in the final days of the 2016 election.

Campaign spokesperson

Following the conviction, Trump’s campaign spokesperson, Karoline Leavitt, informed Fox News Digital that he was “still winning” against President Biden, despite being tangled up in legal proceedings over the last month.

Buckle up

“Now that he is fully back on the campaign trail, Biden and the Democrats better buckle up,” Leavitt said.

    Please everyone! Do not try to argue with a jackass like Tim Scott. His tongue is so far up in DJT’s ass he thinks he is tasting Jello pudding.
