Speaking during a campaign rally in Battle Creek, Michigan Wednesday night, President Trump brushed off impeachment and said despite Democrats' best efforts, he's still having a good time.

Trump also praised Republicans for their unity and gladly pointed to Democrats who voted with them against both articles.

"The contrast between President Trump and the Democrats couldn't be more clear. While the President rallied tens of thousands of citizens in Michigan and celebrated the greatness and success of America, Democrats in D.C. completed their cold, calculated, and concocted 3-year impeachment sham and voted against 63 million Americans," the campaign released in a statement. "And the only part of the vote that was bipartisan was in opposition. The President is just getting stronger while support for the Democrats' political theater has faded. Undeterred, President Trump keeps racking up victories for the American people, who will respond by resoundingly re-electing him next November."

In more bad news for Democrats, 17 percent of the people who showed up for the rally in Michigan - a key swing state for 2020 - aren't Republicans.
