President Trump took to Twitter this morning to try to soothe his bruised ego and his dramatically heightened sense of insecurity by reciting the things that his TV pals on FOX and Friends said.
The right-wing network’s morning show appears to be the closest thing to a therapist that the president has, seeing as he watches them obsessively and somehow manages to draw solace from their “hot takes,” which are usually contrived and entirely divorced from reality.
…impeachment, you have a Party of one. It’s over.” @kilmeade “Nancy said, Jerry, please sit down. Very bad idea. We discovered that after putting so much time & energy into the Mueller Report, it turns out Mueller didn’t know what was in his Report.” @SteveDoocy @foxandfriends

Yesterday changed nothing, except to make it clear to the nation that the president can still be prosecuted for his crimes after he leaves office. Mueller was not exposed as being “best friends” with James Comey, which was a ridiculous right-wing talking point in the first place. They could have been identical twin brothers and it wouldn’t have had any impact on the investigation or made the president’s behavior any less damning.
The conclusions of the Mueller report did not change; we still know that the Russian government conspired to interfere in the 2016 election with the cooperation of the Trump campaign and that they are preparing to do so once again in 2020. The president’s mantra of “no collusion no obstruction” is still false — and all the FOX segments in the world isn’t going to change that.
For the president to be publicly repeating such obviously biased praise that is clearly designed solely to make him feel better is an absolute disgrace. The leader of our nation should not need to seek affirmation for his treason from a couple of brain-dead talking heads.
