Cornered Trump unravels before breakfast: Attacks Comey, Hillary, Mueller

Trump fired off tweets every 10-15 minutes for an hour and a half this morning.

Apparently angry that bombing Syria didn’t make the country forget about his scandals, Trump woke up Sunday morning and promptly took to Twitter to tweet out his rage.

Starting at 7:42 a.m., Trump fired off tweets every 10-15 minutes for nearly an hour and a half, lashing out at everyone from former FBI Director James Comey and special counsel Robert Mueller to Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the “Fake News” media, and the DNC.

It was a busy morning.

In his first three tweets, Trump focused most of his rage on Comey, but included a few other shiny objects in the mix.

Trump then abruptly shifted his attention to Friday’s airstrikes in Syria, clearly angry that he had been so widely (and rightly) mocked for his use of the phrase “Mission Accomplished.” While Trump claims the raid was was “so perfectly carried out, the Pentagon said Saturday that the raid left enough chemical weapons facilities intact to enable the Syrian regime to use chemical weapons again if it chooses to.

Trump then shifted his attention back to Comey in his next tweet, saying it’s a lie that he asked Comey for “loyalty.” But Comey isn’t the only one who has said that — in fact, there are multiple contemporaneous witnesses who have said they can corroborate Comey’s account.

Trump also couldn’t resist rage-tweeting (again) about the FBI raid on his lawyer’s office and residences, which he has previously called an “attack on our country.” This morning, Trump once again complained that the raid violated attorney-client privilege, but forgot to mention the crime-fraud exception to attorney-client privilege.

He also suggested that his other lawyers are probably wondering when their properties are going to be raided — which is likely why no lawyers want to join his legal team.

Trump topped off his tweetstorm by once again taking aim at Comey, whose new book has apparently already gotten under Trump’s skin — before it has even been released.

All is quiet on the Trump front now, but that’s likely because Trump is too busy catching up on Fox News and planning his next Twitter tirade — or as Trump likes to call it, “executive time.”
