( - On Monday night in Manchester, New Hampshire, President Donald Trump once again thanked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for boosting his poll ratings with the impeachment "hoax."

But he wasn't being complimentary:

"On Tuesday, I delivered my address on the State of the Union," Trump said:

"And I had somebody behind me who is mumbling terribly, mumbling. Mumbling, wha-wha-ho-ha. Mumbling. Very distracting, very distracting."

(The crowd erupted in chants of "lock her up.")

"I was very distracted," Trump continued:

"I'm speaking, and a woman is mumbling terribly behind me, angry -- there was a little anger back there. We're the ones who should be angry, not them. We are the ones who should be angry, but we proudly declared that we are in the midst of a great American comeback. Our country is stronger today than ever before."

Trump thanked "our good Republicans in the United States Senate" for rejecting the "outrageous, partisan impeachment hoax" and issuing "a full, complete and total, absolute acquittal. And it wasn't even close," he noted.

"The radical left's pathetic partisan crusade has completely failed, and utterly backfired," he said, noting that "we have the highest poll numbers that we have ever had -- thank you, Nancy, very much. Thank you."

Trump then turned to Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, noting that since New Hampshire is a "crossover" state, Republicans can vote for Democrats in the primary:

"So I hear a lot of Republicans tomorrow will vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats -- does that make sense? You people wouldn't do that. My only problem is, I'm trying to figure out, who is their weakest candidate? I think they're all weak."

Trump told the crowd that his first step to victory in November happens tomorrow, then he repeated his suggestion for Republican voters to "go send a can vote for the weakest candidate if you want, don't worry about it."

Trump said Republicans are the ones with all the energy:

"We have so much more enthusiasm than them, it's not even close. They are all fighting each other, they are all going after each other, they are all over the place, they don't know what the hell they are doing. They don't know what they are doing -- they can't even count their votes."
