The constant denial and deflection that Donald Trump has been trying to use to convince everyone of his innocence in his Russia scandal is, quite frankly, getting really pathetic.
Despite the mounting evidence that continues to be gathered against him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump continues to blame everyone else — especially the FBI and Hillary Clinton, his 2016 opponent.
Trump woke up this morning in a panic over the Russia dossier after watching some fear-mongering nonsense on Fox News — which caused him to tweet about how the FBI used the dossier to “spy on the Trump campaign” and “influence the Election.” He also suggested that the “Dems or Clinton” had colluded with Russians and asked about the “hidden and smashed DNC servers” and “Crooked Hillary Emails.” He tweeted:
Disproven and paid for by Democrats ‘Dossier used to spy on Trump Campaign. Did FBI use Intel tool to influence the Election?’ @foxandfriends Did Dems or Clinton also pay Russians? Where are hidden and smashed DNC servers? Where are Crooked Hillary Emails? What a mess!”
Clearly, Trump (who never watches TV) had just binged on Fox News, and he was reacting to their latest segment about the FBI spying on the Trump campaign.
But of course, Trump wasn’t done. An hour later, Trump sent out another tweet attacking the FBI, accusing the agency of “so badly” spying on his campaign. This was yet another tweet influenced by Fox News, as the network covered the upcoming FISA bill vote extensively this morning. Trump tweeted:
‘House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.’ This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?”
Trump might as well work for Fox News, since his meltdowns are so connected to the network’s shows — and he would be far better at that than he is at his actual job. Trump’s meltdowns concerning his Russia investigation continue to get more insane as more evidence comes out against him. If Trump is starting his morning with this amount of nonsense, we can only imagine what’s going to happen as the day goes on.
