After being relatively quiet on Twitter the last week, Donald Trump saved it all up for an extended tweet storm this morning that really highlighted the man’s paranoia, his inability to spell, his thin skin, and his fondness for conspiracy theories. His handlers must have let him watch too much TV again. Sad!
Remember how many people thought Donald Trump was “presidential” after the Joint Session speech? This should shatter any such illusion.
Here he is accusing President Obama of tapping his phone without any evidence whatsoever (it’s unclear what prompted it, but some are suggesting it arose out of a conspiracy theory floating by radio host Mark Levin that was written up on Brietbart).
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
This sounds like a man desperate to shift the focus of the controversy away from himself, but this only makes the man look unhinged and paranoid. These are the things that people yell in movies before men in white coats come and take them away.
(For the record, it might be possible that the FBI did surveil his phone calls. If Trump’s connections with Russia were as deep as we believe, a judge may have granted the FBI a wiretap.)
Here he is trying to resurrect a horse he beat to death on Twitter yesterday.
Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Uh huh. The White House is supposed to meet with Russian ambassadors. It’s part of their job. People involved in election campaigns do not need to meet with Russian envoys, and they really don’t need to lie about it. Under oath.
Finally, Arnie stepped down from Celebrity Apprentice earlier this week, saying that he loved working on the show, but that it came “with too much baggage,” a reference to Trump.
Here’s Trump’s response.
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
I regret to inform you that president Egg is at it again. pic.twitter.com/lRVpki4Gs2— Brian Byrd (@BrianByrdman) March 4, 2017
