President Tweets as Russia Probe Moves Closer to White House

President Twitter Fingas is up to his old tricks again. As the Russia investigation moves closer to findings of possible obstruction of justice, Donald Trump took out his virtual bullhorn to shout more nonsense. This time, President Vladimir TrumPutin claims that accusations his campaign colluded with Russia last year are “phony” and called the investigation itself a “witch hunt.”


Please note the time stamp on Trump’s first tweet, which was just before 7 a.m. What was he doing up so early, and more importantly, what was he doing up so early on Twitter? Where was Papa Bannon when all this early-morning tweeting was going on? I have questions, and I need answers.


An hour later, presumably after Reince Priebus came in and sprayed on the president’s tan and told him how wonderful he looked, the president fired off another tweet:

Why is “witch hunt” capitalized, and who are these “very bad” and “conflicted” people? Do you mean the special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in our election that the attorney general, Jeff “Big Keebler” Sessions, doesn’t care about?

The Washington Post reports that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is investigating Trump’s conduct with regard to Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and will find out, assuming he isn’t fired, whether Trump’s behavior reached obstruction levels.


The Post also notes that TrumPutin’s personal lawyers and aides, who have become the mouthpieces for all Russia-investigation inquiries, have urged President Twitter Fingas to stop his keyboard thugging.

“The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,” Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s personal lawyer, told the Post.


But Corallo did not refute the notion that Trump was being investigated.

I love the smell of self-sabotage in the morning.

*Edit* For someone who got money and got the top job in America, why does he wake up so angry in the morning? Just proves money can’t make you happy. at. all.
