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.
