Twitter Is Tearing Trump Apart Over Paranoid Tweet Accusing DOJ Of Framing Him

Descending into delusional paranoia, President Trump on Friday tweeted an unverified claim that the FBI placed a mole in his campaign team and suggested that the agency is trying to “frame” him for a crime he didn’t commit. It didn’t go well.

Speaking in the third person, Trump accused the agency of being “out to frame Donald Trump for crimes he didn’t commit” in the tweet, quoting Fox Business Newtwork anchor David Asman.

“Apparently the DOJ put a Spy in the Trump Campaign. This has never been done before and by any means necessary, they are out to frame Donald Trump for crimes he didn’t commit.” David Asman @LouDobbs @GreggJarrett Really bad stuff!” he wrote.

Trump has ramped up his attacks on Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia in recent weeks, accusing the probe of being a year-long “witch hunt” in a tweet Thursday.

Mueller’s probe, which reached its one-year anniversary on Thursday, has ensnared several former members of the Trump campaign with criminal charges, including Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort who faces accusations of bank and tax fraud.

Trump’s tweet was met with an avalanche of brutal responses. Read some highlights below:
