It’s Christmas Eve, and all through the White House, the traitor is stirring… and he’s going even more berserk than usual. Trump is clearly panicked about his own ouster, worried about the continued stock market collapse, freaked out that the military is turning against him, and just plain agitated in general. His rants and raves today were anything but festive.
First Donald Trump took a shot at Senators in both parties who dared to call him out for his stances against the U.S. military and against U.S. allies. Then Trump took this thinly veiled shot at James Mattis: “We are substantially subsidizing the Militaries of many VERY rich countries all over the world, while at the same time these countries take total advantage of the U.S., and our TAXPAYERS, on Trade. General Mattis did not see this as a problem. I DO, and it is being fixed!”
Then Trump managed to dishonestly attack President Obama, a Republican Senator, and a U.S. military envoy in the span of one tweet: “For all of the sympathizers out there of Brett McGurk remember, he was the Obama appointee who was responsible for loading up airplanes with 1.8 Billion Dollars in CASH & sending it to Iran as part of the horrific Iran Nuclear Deal (now terminated) approved by Little Bob Corker.”
Then to top it all off, Donald Trump screamed “AMERICA IS RESPECTED AGAIN” before blaming his own Federal Reserve Chair for the collapse of the stock market. After Trump did this, the Dow Jones quickly dropped even further. It’s Christmas Eve, but Trump seems to think it’s still Festivus and the airing of the grievances.
