The More Intense The Impeachment Inquiry Gets The More Unhinged The President’s Tweets Get.
You are not going to believe this but today Donald J. Trump, the acting President of the United States Of America, tweeted some crazy-ass shit. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “I’ll bet he could have saved 15% or more on his car insurance if only he’d switched to Geico.“ But that’s where you’d be wrong. President Trump lashed out at any number of people today, from the anonymous press to his political rivals to the whistleblower, the Donald is not a happy camper. All of which I know stuns you.
This morning, responding to a NY Times report that claimed that Trump was on a rampage about his wall, and that he suggested to aides that they look into “fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him.“
He went to his go to Twitter feed and launched into it:
Now the press is trying to sell the fact that I wanted a Moot stuffed with alligators and snakes, with an electrified fence and sharp spikes on top, at our Southern Border. I may be tough on Border Security, but not that tough. The press has gone Crazy. Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
He talked about his wall some more:
Massive sections of The Wall are being built at our Southern Border. It is going up rapidly, and built to the highest standards and specifications of the Border Patrol experts. It is actually an amazing structure! Our U.S. Military is doing a GREAT job.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Later, presumably as he watched more television news, he got more upset and insisted that he was being subject to a Coup (hint: he spelled it right this time).
As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2019
….People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2019
He again called for the resignation Rep Adam Shiff (D-CA) for paraphrasing the word salad that was his call to President of Ukraine.
Congressman Adam Schiff should resign for the Crime of, after reading a transcript of my conversation with the President of Ukraine (it was perfect), fraudulently fabricating a statement of the President of the United States and reading it to Congress, as though mine! He is sick!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
He also blamed the Democrats for impeachment,
All the Do Nothing Democrats are focused on is Impeaching the President for having a very good conversation with the Ukrainian President. I knew that many people were listening, even have a transcript. They have been at this “stuff” from the day I got elected. Bad for Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
As well as the stock market plunge, which by all accounts has to with the fears of a slowing economy:
All of this impeachment nonsense, which is going nowhere, is driving the Stock Market, and your 401K’s, down. But that is exactly what the Democrats want to do. They are willing to hurt the Country, with only the 2020 Election in mind!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
Brought up the 2016 election…again.
The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
And he’s already claimed previously that he wasn’t going to pass any legislation as impeachment was on the table.
Nancy Pelosi just said that she is interested in lowering prescription drug prices & working on the desperately needed USMCA. She is incapable of working on either. It is just camouflage for trying to win an election through impeachment. The Do Nothing Democrats are stuck in mud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
