Trump slammed for 'puffery and lies' in departing speech as he tells America 'have a good life'
President Donald Trump was destroyed for his final remarks to the American people Wednesday morning, just before he boarded Air Force One for the very last time.
"Have a good life. We'll see you soon," Trump told America, after speaking for several minutes in off-the-cuff remarks CNN's Jake Tapper described as "puffery and lies." As Air Force One taxied for takeoff Tapper called it a "planeload of grievances and grudges."CNN's Wolf Blitzer called Trump's speech "repulsive," and the event a "totally inappropriate campaign rally."
