Donald Trump’s anxiety levels can be measured by the number of tweets he issues in a day, and Tuesday morning’s tirade indicates he’s near apoplectic range. Continuing his earlier themes that a president cannot be impeached if he thinks he’s doing a great job, or can convince his followers that he is, as well as his belief that his lies will somehow outweigh actual evidence, Trump answered news that he’s been investigated as a possible agent of the Kremlin with a six-tweet Twitter rant like no other.
Trump has attempted to claim that the entire FBI, outside of a handful of top officials, were in chaos under FBI Director James Comey’s leadership and were thrilled when he was fired. Numerous interviews and polls of FBI agents have already debunked that claim, but since when does actual proof matter to Trump?
His claim about veterans is heartening news, indeed, but he leaves out many details with his claims. For instance, 31 percent of federal workers are veterans. All of them are employed, but none of them are being paid at the moment thanks to Trump’s shutdown. Do you think that Trump will report on this and all of the other devastating shutdown news?
While it’s wonderful that Volkswagen intends to open up factories in Tennessee, Trump’s promises to bring industries back to the United States under his presidency has not held true and this example does not excuse Trump from the many scandals surrounding him at the moment.
If it is true that another group of migrants is headed to the border to escape political violence and poverty, this group is no different than the last. There’s no indication that they have the intention of crossing the border illegally and preventing them from making asylum claims is illegal under both domestic and international law.
Polls have not shown support for Trump’s border wall. That claim is just as dishonest as every other statement that leaves Trump’s mouth.
Finally, a billionaire bragging that he served cheap and cold fast food to college football players is laughable, at best, and embarrassing, at worst. Instead of bragging about cheap food, perhaps Trump would do better to worry about opening up the government so nearly a million federal workers can feed their families any food.
Twitter was not impressed with Trump’s tirade. Read some of their comments below:
