Trump Is Tweeting Like a Spoiled Brat Again, Ranting Against His ‘Democratic Enemies’

We thought the news cycle would be more “normal” while Trump was on vacation. We regret to inform you that the erratic president is back on his bullshit.

In hindsight, it seems foolish that we thought it would go any other way. President Trump has never been able to maintain a modicum of decency for longer than 45 minutes. But there was some speculation that new Chief of Staff John Kelly had perhaps convinced Trump that it was a bad idea to whine on social media about “fake news” and “phony polls.”

President Trump went on an early morning tirade over Twitter on Monday, lashing out at the press and his Democratic enemies from his golf club in New Jersey.

Trump kicked off his 200th day in office from Bedminster, where he’ll be for the next two weeks, with a string of angry tweets defending his work ethic against allegations he spends too much time vacationing, touting his popularity on the right, calling the Russia investigation a “hoax” and attacking the “fake news” media.

The messages came after a weekend in which the Trump White House reacted angrily to a report in The New York Times about a shadow campaign of Republicans forming in case the president does not run for reelection in 2020.

He then lashed out against the ‘fake news polls’ (the same polls that Kellyanne Conway admitted were real yesterday) showing that the president’s support among Republicans is dwindling.

Trump is dealing with multiple investigations into the 2016 election — including one by special counsel Robert Mueller that threatens to look into his business empire. He had something to say about that too before bragging things he saw as strengths that had been enabled by his regime.

And finished that idea off with a claim that his base will always be there for him, through thick and thin.

Then for some reason, Trump started threading his next tweet off his second tweet of the day.

The president insisted that he’s working hard, despite the fact that he’s on a 17-day vacation.

Not happy, Trump sent a direct attack at Senator Richard Blumenthal at 7:47am ET.

Senator Blumenthal served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1970 to 1976, but was attacked by conservatives in 2008 when he implied that he had gone to Vietnam, which he hadn’t.

Trump continued tweeting about Blumenthal, saying that “never in US history has anyone lied or defrauded voters” like him.

Of course, that is a pretty bold claim. President Trump received five deferments during the Vietnam War, one for alleged bone spurs in his feet.

Trump is desperate to change the subject as his popularity sunk to a historic low this early for a first-term president.
