On Monday, I recapped Trump’s insane tweets over the weekend, as they painted a picture of a man truly rattled by Robert Mueller’s investigation. Today, he built on that hysteria, live-tweeting cable news until noon. First, here’s the tweet heard-round-the-world (unless you’re a congressional Republican not named Susan Collins).
Reminder: the New York Times reported that Robert Mueller is looking into Trump's tweets as a potential obstruction of justice, so of course POTUShitforbrains would tweet out another missive aimed at obstructing the investigation. Here is the rest of the madness the most powerful man in the world put on display this morning.
This next one belongs in a museum.
There is a silver lining to this: the president of the United States was not working until about noon today. Normally that would be a natural cause for concern, but the less our commander-in-tweet actually does in the federal government, the better off everyone is. We are all much better served watching a confused old man essentially live-tweet the Nixon tapes in real time than using what’s left of his brain to actually try to govern.
