Trump rages furiously at Democrats’ impeachment inquiry in Sunday tweet avalanche

You know that Donald Trump is feeling threatened by the progress that Congressional Democrats have made in their efforts to expose his corruption, bribery, and extortion in the Ukraine Quid pro quo scandal when he skips a day he could be playing golf to spend his afternoon on Twitter offering pitiful defenses of his inexcusable actions.


Trump was tweeting and retweeting so furiously that he lost track of what he was posting and repeated himself several times, posting multiple attacks on the ringmaster of the Democratic impeachment hearings House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and on Paul Krugman, the Nobel Prize-winning economics columnist for The New York Times.

Trump loved this tweet from House Republicans so much that he retweeted it twice, adding his own two-cent comment on the second go-round.

He also twice retweeted the same article criticizing Krugman’s economics bona-fides, demonstrating an enduring grudge against an economist who has pointed to the looming disaster that Trump’s tax and tariff policies are posing to the U.S. economy.

Despite retweeting a rash of clips from his favorite cheerleaders at Fox News whenever they praised him or condemned one of his rivals, Trump took aim at one of his least favorite personalities on the news network, Chris Wallace, one of the few journalists on the channel unwilling to avoid the hard truths emerging from the impeachment inquiry.

Trump must have been watching a different version of Wallace’s interview with Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) on Fox News Sunday this morning than the rest of the nation, who watched the Fox News host demolish the congressman’s defense of Trump by saying that he had “very badly” misrepresented the testimony of the witnesses in the impeachment hearings. By all objective measures, Wallace completely owned the fawning Louisiana legislator by presenting facts to counter his deceptive spin on the impeachment inquiry.

Indeed the weight of the investigations bearing down on him was exhibited by the sheer number of impeachment-related tweets the president posted today.

In addition to the retweets of every right-wing media post supporting himself and attacking the Democrats that he could find, Trump took the time to compose a series of his own assaults on the investigation and the people responsible for it, resorting to vicious personal attacks and total fabrications at every opportunity.

Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, had the temerity to honor a Congressional subpoena against Trump’s wishes and will surely face an intimidating and uncomfortable work environment in the White House from now on after her testimony that she found the call between Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky “unusual and inappropriate.”

Trump packed this tweet with multiple lies — his mischaracterization of the Democrats as “Do Nothing” ignores the truth that the Democratic House has passed reams of legislation that is languishing on House Majority Leader Mitch “The Grim Reaper” McConnell’s now very crowded desk as he blocks every initiative passed by his opposition in the House, while his misreading of the Constitution’s intent in its impeachment clauses is a feeble attempt to cloak his crimes with accusations of partisanship towards the investigations, when they are actually the height of patriotism and exactly what the founding fathers had in mind when faced with a corrupt president.

As has been made apparent in the inquiry that Trump so vehemently condemns, this is yet another lie from the president, as the Ukraine government knew about the withholding of military aid much earlier than the president is admitting to.

Trump still had one last tweet he needed to get out this afternoon, and he chose a recent favorite that he’s returned to again and again despite the fact that the subject of his tweet is completely irrelevant to the facts of his corrupt activities at this point after all of the subsequent testimony that their initial revelations in the Ukraine scandal enabled.

If one can say anything for certain about the whistleblower, it’s that they are decidedly not fake and that they have taken up permanent residence inside Trump’s brain.

No wonder the president is questioning the location of the whistleblower.

It’s so hard to find anything or anyone inside that dark and empty chamber.

That’s it so far today for Trump’s Twitter feed, but don’t worry, it will be replenished with fresh gems of statements that no innocent person would ever think to utter before we even wake up tomorrow morning.
