If you think your Monday has been busy, just imagine how Donald Trump started his work week.
Just hours after his son announced he's having another grandchild, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch began his confirmation hearing and FBI Director James Comey testified in front of a House committee about Russia's role in the election, the president was scheduled to speak at a rally in Louisville, Kentucky.
Trump was set to appear at 7:30 p.m. EDT Monday at the Kentucky Exposition Center's Freedom Hall. You can watch a live stream of the event here on C-SPAN or below on YouTube:
The White House didn't say what topics Trump would be focusing on during his event in the Bluegrass State, but WDRB reported it was likely he'd mention health care, given the ongoing efforts by Republican lawmakers to repeal and replace ex-President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. Trump could also address Gorsuch's hearing and Comey's testimony — the latter of which partly focused Monday on Trump's recent claim that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election last year.
Even though Trump has stuck by the accusations he made against his predecessor, Comey flatly said he had "no information that supports" the tweets in which the president proposed that he'd been bugged, according to NBC News.
"No individual in the United States can direct electronic surveillance of anyone," Comey said.
In any case, Trump could see a warm reception in Kentucky, where he received 1.2 million votes last November to rival Hillary Clinton's 629,000. He took the state's eight electoral votes, and, of course, was ultimately named the victor.
"In Washington they're just out for blood," Trump fan Lynette White told WDRB. "I think he likes these rallies because he can connect with his supporters — the people who put him in office — so that's why we like to go."
