Local news reporters say 10,000 people have been in line for hours – standing in 19º temperatures – to get inside the 6,000-person Kellogg Arena to see Trump on the night he becomes only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.

President Trump is trolling hard, timing the rally at the time Democrats scheduled their prime-time TV impeachment vote.
It’s Trump’s third rally in Michigan since he pierced the Democrats’ “Blue Wall” and beat Hillary Clinton in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania in 2016.

The Democrats have spent all this time working to impeach him.
That doesn’t seem to bother the thousands waiting to get into the arena.
They’ve been heard chanting “four more years!”
