Trump Lashes Out At The "Phony Russian Witch Hunt" And Back-Stabbing Republicans

Tyler Durden's picture

Having been quite for almost 24 hours following his tweetstorm yesterday, President Trump is once again active on his Twitter account.

First, seemingly making a jab at the special counsel’s Russia investigation - following Chuck Schumer's admission that Democrats didn't lose because of the Russians - Trump scoffed at the "phony Russian Witch Hunt"...

But then turned his ire towards some in his own party...


As The Hill notes, it's not clear what issue Trump wants to be protected on, although his presidency has been challenged both by a failure to pass a promised ObamaCare repeal and the continuing investigations into potential ties between his campaign and the Russian government.

While a little less aggressive than yesterday's rage, the president is no less direct in his implication.

It's weird, yet entirely refreshing, watching a Republican office holder actually defend himself against the lying kikes, white race traitors, Deep State crime syndicates, spineless cucks, and assorted liberal trash.

Defend himself from accusations his son confirmed ... quite the 'quite' WH yes

Confirmed what? A Russian lawyer fooled him? 

just the tip's picture

what is really weird is watching candidate trump, destroy all those you name, during the campaign, then invite all of the same into his administration, and now OMG look what is happening.  none of them like me.  but, but, i'm a good guy!!!!  we're not prosecuting hillary, "she's been through enought" and "they are good people".

to open the door, let the snakes in, and then show amazement when bitten, that's either weird or stupid.

from day one, he should have appointed a dozen attack dog special prosecutors  to investigate, carte blanche, the previous four, at least, administrations.  but that has past.  that is lost.  that is not weird.  that was our last hope.

Oh, but you must excuse this, Zero Hedge seems to be doing thier most recent hiring from among HuffPo refugees. Expecting them to spell correctly is racist.

One of those literalist, concrete types. Very annoying.

I recall an anecdote about a psychologist in therapy with a patient, and he metentioned something about "walking on eggsshells", and the patient looked down at his feet.

Republicrats suck.

Where are the demonstrations by Republicans against the treasonous Representatives they voted for and who are scuppering the President's policy agenda?

Should we assume this involved voice to text?

GOP's at an inflection point

They demonstrate on Election Day, otherwise they are working

I'm sick of pussy footing. 


PDJT, appoint Larry Klayman as a special prosector and turn him loose on the leakers.  


Drain the swamp.

Zerohedgers please make this tyrannical United States legislation go viral now!

BA, this is a perfect example of the horrors that are now happening in this country while the  kabuki distractions occur.

Congress, how about our first amendment?

Does this moron ever stop whining? 

Boo hoo hoo. People don't like that I'm treasonous proudly ignorant ASSHOLE. Waaaaah.

What a fucking snowflake. Party of personal responsibility my ass.

Mustafa Kemal's picture

He thinks it is not fair. He even said that Session's recusing himself was "very unfair" to the president.

Apparently, Trump is into fairness.

This is interesting since one of my first childhood lessons  was that "the world is not fair".

At the same time I wonder if he would characterize his upbringing as "fair"

Like Chalky The Clown blaming Bush during his whole Presidency. It never ends. One thing though, the Demoshats never, ever, do in one of their own. The rethugs, on the other hand, are charting new territory in the craven.

 Its all a show folks. Sorry.

  When was the last time anyone from the government gave you a straight answer to anything?

just the tip's picture

you're doing a hell of a lot of apologizing today.

gibbs said saying you're sorry is a sign of weakness.

why not go back to your eyebrow fetish site.

 Keep tellin urself that

If he is commander in chief doesn't he wield enough power to investigate hrc and the others on criminal charges?

Creepy Lurker's picture

Yes, he does. Also, am I the only one who wonders why Giulliani didn't get the AG job? Was I alone in this expectation? Did Sessions get it instead because he could be counted on to not go after Hillary and just spew nonsense about pot smokers?

Considering Donny and the entire party are leftist clowns I don't know what the fuck they are arguing about.

Trump feels how his legs are being pulled into the swamp deeper by the day.

"Just when I was out, the pull me back in!"

His desperation is so noticable, that I am afraid for his life.

I believe, he feels the wrath of the Deep State in all its malice and power and how they will not let go of him, before he is destroyed -both physically and as a luminous figure of hope.

It's potential exposure of the  loans from der German bank and the laundered Russian mob money that has Herr Beakendeoffalot shitting his pants and yipping about his legal right to 'pardon' anyone he wants.

You should be thanking Trump. After all, isn't Canada reaping a whole shitload of illegals? Good for you and Trudeau! No doubt you'll be welcoming many of them into your own home, and paying extra taxes to your govt for the privilege~

johnnycanuck's picture

The illegals are a tiny amount, a nothingburger really.  What we did thank Herr Big Mouth for in the early months of his farcial reign was the high US dollar based on Wall St. elixir salesan promoting the Trump Bump.

Do I need to explain that to you?

DieSocialJusticeWankers's picture

I don't want any of these shitskins in Canada and if I knew who you were johnnycafuck, I'd beat you with a baseball bat!!

How many bottles of Malt Liquor did it take to build up the courage to write that flaming tweenie threat?

DieSocialJusticeWankers's picture

There is nothing worse than a fuck face smug a proud Canadian I support Trump and my American jack off on here with that insufferable faggy embarrass Canada.

just the tip's picture

i don't think johnnycanuck is canadian.  a poser.   the only time he shows up, is to hate trump.  i've never seen a single post/comment in a thread regarding the canadian commodities.  he has never posted on canadian housing or banking threads.  only trump hate.  and in that he is an authority.

DieSocialJusticeWankers's picture

Actually he sounds like a smug fuck face Canadian....there are a lot of them here.....with NOTHING to offer than to brag about the best parts of Canada....built by white MEN just like Trump!!!

"The illegals are a tiny amount, a nothingburger really. "
