Trump Explodes in Mad Morning Meltdown Over Bombshell FBI’s Been Investigating if He’s a Russian Spy



President Donald Trump didn’t wait long to attack after The New York Times published a bombshell late Friday night. The FBI has been investigating the President of the United States to determine if he is a Russian spy. The Times also revealed the FBI initiated that investigation when Trump fired Jim Comey.

At 7:05 AM Saturday morning, Trump began pumping out a series of crazed, angry, finger-pointing tweets detailing his false beliefs about the Russia investigation, attacking many of his favorite targets. It ended at 8:09 AM, only to be restarted at 9:20 AM.

Eight minutes after that Trump started tweeting about the shutdown.

In his nine-tweet mad morning meltdown, not once did Trump deny the substance or focus of the Times’ reporting. It was at best a “non-denial denial.”

The President railed about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who he again labeled “Crooked Hillary,” former President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, “Lyin’” and “Crooked Cop” James Comey, who he called a “total sleaze,” the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton Campaign, and, of course, The “Failing” New York Times.

Robert Mueller didn’t get a nickname, but he did refer to the Special Counsel as, “Bob Mueller, & the 13 Angry Democrats.”

7:05 AM:

7:18 AM:

At 7:33 AM Trump claimed, “My firing of James Comey was a great day for America.”

At 7:53 AM Trump claimed Jim Comey “is being totally protected by his best friend, Bob Mueller, & the 13 Angry Democrats – leaking machines who have NO interest in going after the Real Collusion (and much more) by Crooked Hillary Clinton, her Campaign, and the Democratic National Committee.”

He added, “Just Watch!” which should lead some to wonder, again, if Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, who reportedly had been the President’s eyes and ears inside the Justice Dept., has continued to feed him information.

8:09 AM:

Trump insists he has “been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton. Maybe tougher than any other President.”

The President, who is not a student of history, apparently has never heard of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Korea, Vietnam, the Soviet–Afghan War, or the Cold War.

9:20 AM:

Clearly not satisfied, Trump starts up again, going after “the losers that tried to do a number on your President,” and claims that “insurance policy” they joked about was the FBI investigation against him.

That claim echoes Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson’s desperate claim Friday night, warning all Americans to never speak ill of the FBI or you may find yourself under investigation.

9:28: Trump launches a series of three tweets (so far) attacking and blaming Democrats for his shutdown, which as of midnight was the longest shutdown of the federal government in U.S. history.

In total, nine angry, raging tweets Saturday morning, over a period of less than three hours.

Trump Has Descended Into ‘Crazy Town’ as He Trashes the GOP From Mar-a-Lago: Ex-Adviser



In an interview with the Daily Beast, Donald Trump supporter and former advisor Sam Nunberg stated that the president is alienating everyone around him during his final days as he rages at Mar-a-Lago about the 2020 presidential election results, saying he has turned the atmosphere around him into “Crazy Town.”

With the president making the lives of Republicans miserable with his ever-changing COVID-19 aid package demands — upping the ante on Saturday night by suggesting two $2000 payments for struggling Americans while Republicans had agreed to only $600 — Trump insiders claim the president is furious about his election loss and still looking for a way to remain in office.

According to a source at the Mar-a-Lago resort, “The president spent much of the Christmas weekend [at Mar-a-Lago] talking about other Republicans who weren’t doing what he wanted and acting like failures and defeatists,” before adding Trump “was not finding much to be happy about this Christmas.”

Ex-advisor Nunberg said the president’s temperament has gone beyond that because he can’t abide the idea of being a one-term president.

“He is no longer the celebrity mogul magnate as he was in New York, and now he is part of… that exclusive Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush [one term president] club,” explained Nunberg. “He has gone from handling this in a manner that would have helped him keep this power base that he had to now going through conspiracy theories and giving over the portfolio to two bumbling morons in Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell… You don’t want to go out like this with him. It’s not like you’re in a bunker at the end of WWII. You’re in Crazy Town.”

Nunberg went to admit that his association with Trump “ruined” his career and said others who did the same may face the same fate.

“Nunberg, for his part, couldn’t explain why it was that people are drawn to Trump knowing the damage he will cause them. Some, he suspected, want the proximity of power. Others believe they can shape him. Many see money to be made from it. But much of it was a mystery,” the Beast reports reported with the former adviser adding, “I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know,” said Nunberg. “I was the one who was mistreated worse out of anyone.”

Trump Goes on Unhinged ‘Fox & Friends’ Rant – and Tells Horrified Hosts He’s Going to Call in Every Week



President Donald Trump went on an insane rant Monday morning. In a 47-minute telephone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump attacked Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, the “fake news” media,  the governor of Nevada, California’s forest management, and blamed China for air pollution in the U.S.

Short on campaign cash Trump is looking for as much free media coverage as he can get. The “Fox & Friends” hosts were stunned and horrified when he said he’ll be doing this every week.

“I haven’t heard that,” Steve Doocy, stunned, replied.

“We’re going to see how that goes,” Ainsley Earhardt told Trump.

“You may want to do it every week, but Fox is not committed to that. We’re going to take it on a case-by-case basis,” Steve Doocy abruptly said to the president at the end of the interview. Both hosts mentioned Joe Biden is welcome to come on the show too.

Here Steve Doocy tells Trump a lot of people are asking “why on earth” he talked to Bob Woodward 18 times.

It’s not going well:

Trump talks California wildfires.

“You have forests all over the world you don’t have fires like you do in California, you know, in Europe they have forest cities you look at you look at countries, like, Austria, you look at so many countries they live in the forest they considered Forest Cities so many of them, and they don’t have fires like this, and they have more explosive trees. They have trees that will catch easier, but they maintain their fire they’ve, they have an expression they thin the fuel the fuel is what’s on the ground the leaves the trees that fall they’re dry, they’re like, they’re like a matchstick you know after 18 months if they’re underground longer than 18 months. They’re very explosive and they have to get rid of that stuff.”

Trump insists Nevada Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak tried to stop his campaign rally. He also claims Sisolak is in charge of the ballots (that’s false, the Secretary of State is) and baselessly accuses him of election tampering.

No word yet on if Trump will be back Monday.

Trump Rushes to Defend Embattled NRA by Claiming It’s ‘Under Siege’ by NY Democrats



President Donald Trump is running to defend the embattled National Rifle Association (NRA), after infighting at the very highest levels during its annual members convention ended with accusation of extortion and ultimately the ouster of its president.

Trump had addressed the convention on Friday, literally minutes after a judge handed down the maximum sentence to Russian agent Maria Butina, who infiltrated the NRA in an attempt to influence the Trump campaign.

Hours later, reports came that NRA President Oliver North was accusing longtime NRA head Wayne LaPierre (photo, right, with Trump) of misusing NRA funds, and LaPierre accused North of extortion.

The NRA is also the focus of an investigation by the State of New York’s Attorney General, Letitia James, which ultimately could lead to its non-profit status being challenged or revoked. (Trump’s non-profit, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, suffered a similar fate, shutting down after an investigation.)

Trump is using alleged misdeeds by NRA leadership to attack his political opponents, two top New York Democrats.

“The NRA is under siege by Cuomo and the New York State A.G., who are illegally using the State’s legal apparatus to take down and destroy this very important organization, & others,” Trump tweeted, referring to NY Governor Andrew Cuomo. “It must get its act together quickly, stop the internal fighting, & get back to GREATNESS – FAST!”

What the NY AG is doing is not illegal. It’s actually an important part of her job.

And here’s evidence of why.

According to a report by Mike Spies at The Trace, published in partnership with The New Yorker, the NRA is a disaster.

“According to interviews and to documents that I obtained — federal tax forms, charity records, contracts, corporate filings, and internal communications — a small group of NRA executives, contractors, and vendors has extracted hundreds of millions of dollars from the nonprofit’s budget, through gratuitous payments, sweetheart deals, and opaque financial arrangements. Memos created by a senior NRA employee describe a workplace distinguished by secrecy, self-dealing, and greed, whose leaders have encouraged disastrous business ventures and questionable partnerships, and have marginalized those who object.”
