Trump is now outside on the South Lawn protesting his own impeachment hearing (VIDEO)

President Donald Trump is trying to distract from the damaging impeachment hearings against him on Capitol Hill.

Shortly after U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland said that there was quid pro quo, and that it came from the direction of Rudy Giuliani because of Trump's wishes, Trump went to the South Lawn of the White House to protest.

Apparently, sitting on the couch and watching all of this unfold on live television was too unbearable for him.

Trump had a notepad in his hand and read off from handwritten notes of his.

Trump refutes the fact that someone said he "not in a good mood."

"I'm always in a good mood, I don't know what that is." He then went on a rant.

Before Sondland testified, Trump said he was "a great American." Now, Trump is claiming "this is not a man I know well."

NOTE: Gordon Sondland is still testifying, as are other witnesses.

A close-up of the handwritten notes show that they appear to be written in black sharpie.

If all this wasn't enough, the White House is now using their official communication channels to push Trump-sounding rhetoric to harass members of Congress while they continue with the impeachment inquiry hearings.

All of this is happening, of course, because the ambassador's testimony is important against Trump - it links Trump directly in the scandal.

“Fourth, as I testified previously, [Trump attorney Rudolph W.] Giuliani’s requests were a quid pro quo for arranging a White House visit for President Zelensky,” he said. “Mr. Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement announcing investigations of the 2016 election/DNC server and Burisma. Mr. Giuliani was expressing the desires of the president of the United States, and we knew that these investigations were important to the president.”
