Trump Tantrum In Progress: A Deranged Tweetstorm Is Gaining Momentum Right Now

An increasingly deranged President Trump on Sunday went on a frantic tirade over the legal woes piling up against him.

The special counsel’s investigation and the FBI’s handling of cases concerning him were on the president’s mind, as well as “Saturday Night Live” and several other issues, as Trump spent a rainy morning in Washington, D.C., sending a string of tweets.

Trump began his Twiter fusillade by raising the prospect of challenging a Saturday Night Live show in court, then revived his attacks on the FBI by blaming the bureau for causing his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to speak out against him.

In his first tweet of the morning, Trump declared that a “real scandal” was the coverage he received on NBC and “Saturday Night Live.” The comedy show opened its broadcast the previous night with a sketch depicting Trump’s life had he not been elected president.

“It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials,” Trump tweeted. “Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle!”

The president, who has claimed he does not watch “SNL,” has commented on the show multiple times on Twitter in recent months. Sunday marked the first time he questioned the legality of its mockery, though satirical speech is protected by the First Amendment.

Trump then turned his attention to the FBI while using mob terminology.

The president alleged the bureau “broke into” Cohen’s office, and claimed the raid caused his longtime associate to turn against him.

“Remember, Michael Cohen only became a ‘Rat’ after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started. They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The FBI in April raided Cohen’s home, office and hotel room, seizing troves of documents and computer files. The search warrants for the raids were approved by a federal judge, and came in part based on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office.

For the second straight day, Trump also claimed that thousands of texts between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former bureau employee Lisa Page were deleted.

“What an outrage as the totally compromised and conflicted Witch Hunt moves ever so slowly forward,” Trump tweeted. “Want them!”

He then went after Barack Obama by falsely claiming that the former President had a policy of separating children a the border.
