Trump just kicked off President’s Day by desperately lashing out at McCabe for damning interview

Former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe has surged back into the headlines after a bombshell 60 Minutes interview in which he gave the country a peek behind the curtain at the chaotic state of affairs that led to his firing.

Among other things, he revealed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein floated the idea of using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, so convinced was he of the president’s criminality and the threat he posed to this country. McCabe also stated that he and others believed that Trump may have been engaged in obstruction of justice to shield himself from the expanding Russia probe. Coming from a source as reliable as McCabe, the revelations set off shockwaves across the country.

Not surprisingly, Trump has decided to go scorched earth on McCabe in retaliation, attacking him on Twitter. Today, he rolled out of bed and launched another assault by accusing him and Rosenstein of lying.

Trump said that McCabe’s story is becoming more “deranged,” although hardly any person who watched the calm, measured 60 Minutes interview would come to such a conclusion. In this showdown, McCabe is clearly the more credible account.

Trump also took a cheap shot at his former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for hiring McCabe and Rosenstein but failed to take personal responsibility for his own hiring of Sessions in the first place. In Trumpworld, the president is never at fault, even when he clearly is.

Furthermore, Trump’s contention that Rosenstein and McCabe’s discussion of the 25th Amendment was them planning a “very illegal act” is absolute rubbish. The measure is enshrined in our Constitution, which is to say it’s fundamentally legal.

As he so often does, Trump ended his unhinged little Twitter meltdown by touting his imagined accomplishments and by trying to convince himself that millions of Americans “really like” him.  As usual, it comes across as little more than the pathetic insistence of a man who knows his administration is crumbling. He is not going to win this war of his against law enforcement.
