In an extraordinary act of desperation, President Trump on Wednesday morning shared an image calling for his opponents, including former President Obama, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, special counsel Robert Mueller, former FBI Director James Comey and former President Bill Clinton to face trial for “treason,” with many of them behind bars. He got torched for it.
The image, which the president retweeted, comes from a pro-Trump Twitter account.
“Now that Russia collusion is a proven lie, when do the trials for treason begin?” the caption on the photo reads.
Several of the figures in the image were targeted with mailed explosives allegedly from a Trump supporter last month.
The retweet comes as reports emerge that Mueller’s team is working on their final report about its investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Trump on Monday lashed out at Mueller as a “conflicted prosecutor gone rogue” following a new filing from the special counsel that claims Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, violated a plea agreement by lying to federal prosecutors.
In a series of tweets, Trump accused Mueller of causing “tremendous” damage to the nation’s criminal justice system and “only looking at one side” in his investigation.
Twitter users fired back at the president, and it wasn’t pretty:

This is the same man who's under investigation for colluding with a foreign government, breaking the Emoluments Clause, and being personally sued by a pornstar, a playmate, and a Apprentice contestant & Russian Mobster Felix Sater was his right hand man for a decade… pic.twitter.com/UrIEy8h1Ir

Don't see anyone from your colluding camp? It will be so nice when your panicky administration is relieved of duty. Com'on special prosecutors.

You know this motherfucker wants people to believe that he is done nothing wrong but in the inside he knows Robert Muller is going to bent him over and fuck him in his ass

Those must be all the people on the other side of the bars staring at Papadopoulos, Manafort, Gates, Flynn, and Cohen, and whomever is next. This is unprecedented corruption….biggest scandal of our lives in America.

You are possibly the most offensive human currently on the planet. Lies spew from your mouth, anger is your only emotion, your ignorance tests the boundaries of stupidity, and you wear your corruption like a medal that daddy pinned on your chest.

Trump just liked the most authoritarian thing ever…And you can tell Trump just really likes the idea of mindlessly locking up everyone he can’t 100% control, by the fact his own deputy AG is in there, too.

This President has committed many illegal acts and lashes out like a pimple-faced teenager at people who are looking for the truth. If a person was innocent, would they be worried about this investigation? I think not.

Send the ambulance and the straight jacket to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
