A Very Shaken and Angry Donald Trump Lashes Out

President Donald Trump is clearly shaken and angered by multiple developments over the past 48 hours.

The Democrats have formally requested six years of his tax returns, and are ready to formally subpoena the full Mueller report. And after nearly two years of work without a single leak Robert Mueller's team is making it known they are frustrated with Attorney General Barr's apparently misleading 4-page summary of the Special Counsel's investigation, and believe Trump is not as innocent as Barr suggests. Federal investigators have launched an investigation into how foreign governments may be using Mar-a-Lago to target Trump, which will likely uncover the pay-for-access nature of his golf club. And under Trump more than two dozen administration officials and others were granted security clearances despite being rejected by career civil servants – at the top of that list is Jared Kushner.

Once again the walls are creeping in.

President Donald Trump's mood seems to have taken a nose-dive.

Thursday morning he test-drove a new campaign slogan on Twitter:

This, following last week's disastrous attempt at re-branding:

Trump moved on to the Mueller investigation, framing collusion as a matter for the polls. As long as people don't care if there was collusion or conspiracy – regardless of whether or not it meets a legal standard, regardless of whether or not it meets a moral one – Trump now thinks it's all about he polls.

What are the polls actually saying? Looks at these recent headlines:

"Poll: Nearly half still think Trump obstructed Russian probe"

"Most Americans don't think Trump is in the clear yet on Russia, new poll finds"

"Despite report findings, almost half of Americans think Trump colluded with Russia: Reuters/Ipsos poll"

"Most Voters Still Believe Russia Has Compromising Information on Trump"

Trump didn't stop there.

"This is the highest level of Presidential Harassment in the history of our Country!" he concluded.

President Abe Lincoln probably would have disagreed.
