Trump just followed up this morning’s racist tweets with a barrage attacking Mueller

After a morning of posting a series of foul and racist tweets about Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) this morning, Donald Trump returned to Twitter to dig himself into a deeper hole than ever with a new round of lies that only his most gullible and dedicated followers will be able to stomach.

First Trump demonstrated his true neo-Nazi sympathies by declaring that he is considering classifying the anti-fascist demonstrators known as the Antifa as a “major Organization of Terror” and comparing them to the Central American gang MS-13 — all without saying a word about the right-wing white supremacist groups that are responsible for the bulk of domestic terrorist acts in this country.

Trump’s negative depiction of the group that is dedicated to fighting against the kind of racism, xenophobia, and authoritarianism that he regularly advocates contrasts with both the president’s description of the neo-Nazi Charlottesville marchers as “fine people” and FBI Director Christopher Wray’s admission that white-supremacists were the majority of the 100 domestic terrorism-related arrests the bureau has made since October.

”I will say that a majority of the domestic terrorism cases that we’ve investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence,” Wray told the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

Trump next descended into a fantasyland alternative reality by again trying to convince the public that they should not believe their eyes, their ears, the smell test, or anything that Special Counsel Robert Mueller uncovered in his lengthy investigation of Russia’s proven attack on the 2016 election and its numerous contacts with Trump campaign officials — many of whom are now or have been in prison for their wrongdoing.

Trump is counting on the odds that the majority of the public will either never read the Meuller report or else will have reading comprehension as poor as his own must be if his tweeted comments are what he’s gleaned from the Special Counsel’s 448-page expose of his clear obstruction of justice.

For the record, the truth is that Mueller not only implicated the president in obstruction of justice but revealed that the president lied and obfuscated in his written answers to the special counsel’s questions under oath.

One tweet about Mueller and the renewed fervor among Democratic representatives for Trump’s impeachment was not enough for Trump today, however.

The hypocrisy of Trump’s attempt to label Democrats the “do nothing Party” would be laughable if the purposeful single-handed obstruction by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) of the majority of the over 50 bills passed by House Democrats wasn’t so insidiously harmful to our nation’s democracy.

The senate leader — dubbed “the grim reaper” for his slaughter of nearly every proposed bill sent is his way — most recently had the temerity to reject two bills that would help ensure national election security just days after his own chamber’s Intelligence Committee concluded that “election systems in all 50 states were targeted by Russia in 2016, an effort more far-reaching than previously acknowledged and one largely undetected by the states and federal officials at the time,” as The New York Times reported.

Trump’s attempts to convince the public of his innocence of the charges that he would surely be already facing were he not a sitting president under the current Justice Department rulings are loud and combative, but ultimately feeble and unconvincing.

He not only doth protest too much. He just can’t shut up, and he can’t say a word that isn’t as false as a Trump University diploma.
