Trump Is Having a Terrible Day On Twitter

President Donald Trump began his Saturday with a deranged rant on Twitter, casting blame elsewhere for the many setbacks of his scandal-ridden administration suffered last week.

In a series of tweets, an angry President Trump railed against the Senate for failing in its second attempt to overhaul Obamacare, which left the president with no legislative accomplishment to point to six months into his administration.

“The very outdated filibuster rule must go,” Trump wrote on Twitter, noting that Republicans “look like fools” by allowing “8 Dems to control the country.”

Trump blamed the legislative process for his biggest legislative setback to date —one that thrusts him into August with Republicans on the Hill trying to start from scratch on repealing and replacing Obamacare, while many in the White House want to move on to tackle tax reform.

After Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) voted against the Republican healthcare bill early Friday morning, Republicans expected the president to take out his anger on McCain. But on Saturday morning, he lashed out against McConnell instead, on his Twitter feed.

“Budget reconciliation is killing R’s in Senate,” Trump tweeted. “Mitch M, go to 51 Votes NOW and WIN. IT’S TIME!”

Twitter users didn’t mince words in responding to the erratic president:
