President Donald Trump is unhappy that NBC, among other mainstream news outlets, is covering the FBI and congressional investigations into the Russian interference in the 2016 election in an effort to help Trump defeat his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, and into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian operatives regarding this interference.
So, this morning, the erratic president took to Twitter to lash out against the “Fake News Media” that dares to cover the scandals plaguing his fraudulent administration. This time, NBC was the focus of his rage.
In a desperate tweet, Trump is literally demanding that NBC stops covering the federal investigations and instead focus their coverage on a debunked conspiracy theory that he invented.
Then he tried to bamboozle his followers into his sham by tweeting: “It is the same Fake News Media that said there is “no path to victory for Trump” that is now pushing the phony Russia story. A total scam!”
While no one—including Trump himself—expected him to win, Trump’s shocking victory is completely irrelevant to what U.S. Intelligence agencies and congressional committees believe that they have enough evidence to investigate. When a Republican-controlled Congress feels the need to investigate a Republican president’s team, you know something is seriously amiss.
Testifying before Congress in March, FBI Director James Comey publicly stated that “there is no evidence to support Trump’s outlandish Obama wiretap claims,” Comey also revealed, for the first time, that his agency is investigation the Russian interference in the election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and Trump’s associates.
We all know Trump doesn’t care about truth. This conman speaks with only one goal in mind: to make himself look good.
Mr. Trump, you’re not fooling anyone.
