Trump Completely Melts Down, Threatens Comey, Media in Morning Twitter Tirade

As if we needed any more evidence that Donald Trump is in full panic mode concerning the active, on-going investigations into his possible collusion with Russia during the 2016 election, look no further than this morning’s complete meltdown he had on Twitter. During his social media rant he managed to threaten James Comey, the media, and, once again, claimed the allegations he colluded with Russian officials are nothing more than fabricated lies from the left.

This was such an unhinged mess, I’ll just get right to it.

It all began at 6:51 a.m:

I can’t help but laugh at how he keeps claiming this story is all some sort of “FAKE NEWS!” when we already know that U.S. intelligence officials are in the midst of an on-going investigation into whether or not Trump, or people associated with his campaign, potentially committed treason by working with Russia agents to undermine the 2016 election.

Furthermore, this story was around months before the election, so it’s not as if Democrats magically conjured it up out of nowhere after he “won.”

Besides, if he’s truly innocent, as he claims, then why does he seem so terrified of what’s going to be dug up during these investigations? If he has nothing to hide then there’s no reason for him to fear anything. Make no mistake about it — Trump’s scared.

Then two minutes later:

Translation: They’re reporting facts he doesn’t want people knowing about.

Then at 6:59 a.m. he sent a two-part tweet:

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that’s our “Commander-in-Chief” saying his surrogates shouldn’t be held accountable for accuracy, nor should they be forced to be factual when defending his administration, while also threatening to end all press briefings and replacing them with what would ultimately be nothing more than propaganda handouts.

I’d also like to point out that there was an eight minute delay between the sending of those two tweets — eight minutes!

At 7:26 a.m. Trump apparently felt like making a thinly veiled threat against the recently fired former director of the FBI, James Comey:

Not only is Trump clearly threatening Comey with this tweet, but he seems to be implying that, unbeknownst to the people with whom he’s speaking, he’s secretly recording his conversations and meetings with them. Whether or not that’s true is anybody’s guess. However, it’s indisputable that this was Trump trying to threaten and intimidate James Comey.

Trump followed up that rather controversial tweet by repeating a pointless talking point he’s repeatedly brought up over the last few months:

For starters, Clapper wouldn’t have had knowledge about what, exactly the FBI was investigating or what evidence they had.

Furthermore, when he made the comments to which Trump’s referring, Clapper told the Senate Judiciary subcommittee that he “wasn’t aware” of any evidence of collusion. That certainly doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. To hear Trump talk about Clapper’s statement, he seems to think the former director of national intelligence saying he “wasn’t aware” of any evidence equates to some sort of complete absolution from these Russia allegations.

Though, once again, Clapper wouldn’t have been privy to what evidence, specifically, the FBI had or intimate knowledge of their on-going investigations into Trump’s campaign.

Then at 8:20 a.m. the orange buffoon sent out this gem:

There Trump goes again, trying to take credit for something that been in the works since the Obama administration. China actually lifted the import ban back in September, but due to regulatory hurdles between the two countries concerning the traceability of the animals, very little goods have actually been imported.

So while it’s fair to say Trump’s still hammering out some details with the Chinese government, this is just another example where he’s trying to take credit for something he had almost nothing to do with.

It’s a sad day for this country when our leader, and the person who has the most difficult job in the world, apparently spent a good chunk of his Friday morning watching cable news and whining on Twitter like a petulant child who can’t control his emotions.

I can’t wait for the day when we once again have someone living in the White House who’s a mature, confident adult instead of an insecure, mentally unhinged clown.
