Trump Launches Conspiracy-Laden Friday Twitter Meltdown


President Trump is continuing to face his Senate impeachment trial this week, where Democrats presenting the House’s impeachment case have now spent days publicly outlining their case against him, including charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. This Friday, as the House side’s opening arguments wound down, Trump launched into a Twitter tirade that proved that he remains essentially completely disconnected from the facts and reality of the situation, which is not exactly a reassuring thing to say about the president of the United States.

He tweeted a claim that Democrats are only after him out of some kind of spite and seeking political retribution for his appointment of conservative judges across the federal judiciary. In reality, besides the many public statements that figures like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have made directly denouncing the claims that they’re acting out of some kind of political malice, they’ve publicly outlined their evidence of the president’s misconduct! It’s not a secret!

Still, he tweeted:

‘More than anything else, the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, like AOC, Omar, Cryin’ Chuck, Nervous Nancy & Shifty Schiff, are angry & “deranged” over the fact that Republicans are up to 191 Federal Judges & Two Great New Supreme Court Justices. Don’t blame me, blame Obama!’

Again — nope, they’re taking him to task for his corruption. This week, Fox News contributor Andrew Napolitano even joined the chorus of those asserting that his corruption includes criminal acts. In a piece published on the Fox News website, he said that Trump’s scheme to bribe Ukraine into investigating his opponents includes illegal requests for foreign interference in U.S. elections and bribery and his obstruction of investigations into the scheme includes contempt of Congress.

Besides, what does Obama have to do with it? One of those appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court is the direct result of Republican efforts to obstruct then-President Obama from filling a seat that had been made vacant towards the end of his presidency. Obama appointed actually competent individuals — Trump has stuck to buffoons who sometimes don’t even muster enough competence to get approvals from the American Bar Association.
