Trump just launched into a frantic Sunday night Twitter tirade

It’s unlikely that the notoriously poorly-read President Trump is particularly familiar with the works of William Shakespeare.


If he was, then he might not be quite so willing to “protest too much, methinks” as the quote from Hamlet goes.

It’s difficult not to think of that phrase while reading the president’s latest series of social media posts.

Another cultural touchstone that could be invoked is the classic rock hit from The Who, “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” the lyrics of which could easily be altered to describe Trump’s Twitter output: “Meet the new tweets. Same as the old tweets.”

The president doesn’t seem to realize that when he takes the time to break away from watching Fox News several times a day to repeatedly proclaim his innocence while blocking Congress from viewing the very report that he claims completely exonerates him of any wrongdoing, he may come across as trying a smidgen too hard to credibly allow the public to believe his protestations.

Yet there he was again this evening attacking Democrats for actually reading the Mueller report, realizing that it says nothing like what Trump and his complicit Attorney General William Barr have portrayed it as containing, and deciding that the matters of obstruction of justice and the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia and other foreign powers both before and after the election deserve further inquiry.

Trump approached the subject like a man obsessed, despite having sent essentially the same message nearly every day since the Mueller probe began.

It’s the same message filled with lies and false accusations — and the same Trump — as this morning, as yesterday and the day before, as last week, last month, and last year.

At least there is one point in President Trump’s latest iteration of his self-pitying propaganda bombs that most Americans can all agree on: “hopefully guilty people will pay!”

The difference is that for the majority of the American people, Trump, his family, and his Republican enablers are the guilty people, something that the president’s protesting too much only serves to further convince us of.

Continue on tweeting your repetitive lies Mr. President. Just remember that we won’t be fooled again.
