It looks like Donald Trump didn’t have a particularly enjoyable Christmas, as he’s woken up the morning after in one of his worst moods yet. As per usual he’s dementedly attacking everyone from Hillary Clinton to the FBI to ObamaCare. But in a surprising and potentially telling move, Trump is going berserk about the infamous “Pee Pee Tape” and the related Trump-Russia dossier. It’s as if he knows something is coming that we don’t.
Here’s what Sourpuss Trump tweeted when he rolled out of his crypt on Tuesday morning: “WOW, @foxandfrlends ‘Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.’ And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!” Hmm, where to even begin? For starters he managed to misspell “foxandfriends” as “foxandfrlends” (with an “L”) and he ended up sending his followers to a Fox and Friends impostor account instead. But the real issue here is what he’s attacking.
For reasons known only to him, Trump is as obsessed with the Pee Pee Tape as ever. He’s so angry at the dossier he’s lambasting it a “piece of garbage” and he’s willing to destroy the entire FBI (and blame it all on Hillary) just to try to make the Pee Pee Tape story go away. But the kicker is that no one is even really talking about the dossier at present, because the Trump-Russia investigation has moved on to hard evidence instead. Yet the mere mention of the Pee Pee Tape dossier on television causes Trump to fly into a panicked and defensive rage.
An hour later, Donald Trump’s handlers still haven’t gone back and deleted his errant tweet which directed people to the fake “Fox and Friends” account. This suggests that, despite declaring himself to be “back to work” today, Trump still isn’t being supervised. He may end up tweeting the nuclear launch codes by lunchtime – but don’t worry, he’ll manage to misspell them too.
