The president of the United States decided to let the whole nation know just how vulnerable he’s feeling and how deeply yesterday’s release of the Fusion GPS disturbed him by taking to Twitter and firing off wild denials that only serve to increase the aura of guilt and foreboding doom that permeates the Trump administration and clings to its occupants.
The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!

Dispensing with the factually incorrect assertions here for a moment (the literal witch-hunts during the 1800s were certainly the worst witch-hunts in our history), the repetitive declaration that there “was no collusion” makes it clear that there was at least some collusion – and now some serious obstruction of justice to boot.
He’s not wrong in that the world is laughing – but they’re laughing at his unprofessional Twitter habits, at his laziness and his stupidity, at the chaos and incompetence with which he and his merry band of scheming grifters and deranged extremists have set about unraveling our nation as we know it.
The funniest part about this tweet, however, is the cry for help at the end. “REPUBLICANS SHOULD TAKE CONTROL!” screams a Republican president, presiding over a Congress entirely strangled by Republicans and the majority of statehouses and governorships in the nation.
You couldn’t be in more control than he is already – but king nothing is discovering the hard way that the being the President isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For now, at least, the wheels of justice are still strong enough to overcome all the proverbial wrenches Trump and his cronies are throwing at them.
