Donald Trump jokingly said he would need to nominate Hillary Clinton for the Supreme Court for the media to investigate.
The president, once again, pointed to his 2016 foe as he continued to praise Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump mentioned Kavanaugh several times during his speech at a Ted Cruz rally in Houston on Monday night, not to mention Christine Blasey Ford, who accused the court of sexually assaulting her when she was 15 years old.
"If you want the false news to finally investigate Hillary Clinton, we will have to nominate Hillary Clinton to the Supreme Court of the United States," he told the crowd.
How do you like that idea? Let's see how it goes.
Donald Trump jokingly said he would have to nominate Hillary Clinton for the Supreme Court for the media to investigate while speaking at a rally for Ted Cruz on Monday night.
Trump said he would say "three or four years of questions" for Hillary to overcome the Supreme Court's investigation process
& # 39; If Judge Kavanaugh had to go through what happened. He is a good man. Can you imagine Hillary up there?
"That would take three or four years of questions."
Trump did not mention the fact that Clinton gave 11 hours of testimony during one of the half dozen investigations of the Republican Congress about the Benghazi attack in 2012.
The president, on the other hand, concentrated his anger on the "false media," encouraging the crowd to sing "CNN sucks."
"Do not worry, I do not like them either," he said.

Only a second later, Trump boasted about how many members of the media that, according to him, he always ignores, he attended to cover the meeting.
"This is like the Academy Awards, which went through the tubes," he added. & # 39; I think we do a lot better. Look how many. Look at them. & # 39;
& # 39; Recognize those happy faces back there? I know that each of them and 15 percent of them are great, "he continued." Each of them.
Trump has been Kavanaugh's biggest supporter since the accusations against the Supreme Court judge surfaced in September.
The president went so far as to claim that Ford's accusations were a "deception" led by the Democrats, despite the fact that Ford told his therapist and husband in 2012 about Kavanaugh's alleged attack.
Trump apologized to Kavanaugh "on behalf of our nation" during the ceremonial swearing in ceremony at the White House earlier this month and said that justice had been forced to endure the "terrible pain and suffering".
Christine Blasey Ford stated that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party at her home when she was 15 years old. Trump has since called his accusations a "deception" Democrat.

"Those who take a step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation," Trump added.
& # 39; It is not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deceptions & # 39;
Clinton responded the day after the ceremony and said Trump had turned it into a "political rally."
"This further undermined the image and integrity of the court," Clinton told CNN.
And that worries me a lot. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been seen as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government & # 39;
& # 39; So I do not know how people will react. I think that, given our divisions, it will be quite predictable between those who are in favor and those who are against it.
"But the president has been true in his form," Clinton continued.
He has insulted, attacked and degraded women throughout the campaign, actually for many years before the campaign. And he has continued to do that inside the White House.
