Donald Trump tends to post most of his tweets, and for that matter most of his Twitter meltdowns, early in the morning. It’s par for the course for Trump to begin tweeting angry toxic dishonest garbage at around 7:30am eastern time each day. When Trump occasionally begins tweeting late at night, the result is usually a rant for the ages. On Thursday night, Trump’s Twitter meltdown late on Thursday night was so jarring, it revealed that he knows he’s a goner.
Trump initially tried to keep his rant on focus, tweeting about the newly unveiled Republican tax plan. He misspelled Capitol Hill as “Capital Hill” but beyond that, he sounded rational. But once he was on Twitter, he couldn’t help himself. He began falsely accusing Hillary Clinton of having “illegally” rigged the Democratic primary race, before tweeting this: “This is real collusion and dishonesty. Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering – where is our Justice Department?”
That’s right, Donald Trump is now formally accusing Hillary Clinton of “money laundering” while providing no evidence whatsoever. From his tweet, it’s not even clear that he knows what money laundering is. But it is a sign that when his campaign chairman Paul Manafort was arrested this week on money laundering charges, it sent a panicked cold shiver down his spine. Trump must have figured out that because his own financial scams are similar to the kind of scams that Manafort was just busted for, he’s going down for money laundering himself.
So now we know that Donald Trump thinks he’s going down for money laundering. As always, his reckless obsession with Hillary Clinton has helped to give him away. After Trump is ousted from office and they eventually come to arrest him, the odds are strong that he’ll be tweeting toxic garbage about Hillary as they take his phone and slap the handcuffs on him.
