Last night Palmer Report pointed out that Donald Trump had done virtually no tweeting during his first few days in Florida, raising the possibility that one of Trump’s handlers had been doing most of Trump’s recent tweeting, and that person didn’t make the Florida trip. Trump is once again tweeting very little today, but what he’s lacking in volume, he’s making up for in sheer lunacy.

Here’s what Donald Trump had to say today in his only real Twitter meltdown of the day: “Pelosi gives us the most unfair trial in the history of the U.S. Congress, and now she is crying for fairness in the Senate, and breaking all rules while doing so. She lost Congress once, she will do it again!” Wait a minute here.

Late last week, Trump was claiming that he somehow hasn’t actually been impeached at all, because the House hasn’t sent the articles of impeachment to the Senate for trial. Now Trump appears to be claiming that the House already held his impeachment trial. That’s not how anything works, and Trump is lucky he’s wrong about this – because if the House had the power to hold an impeachment trial, it would have convicted and removed him by now.

In any case, Donald Trump – or whoever might be writing these tweets for him at this point – is merely throwing one random thing after another at the wall in the hope something will stick. Last week we joked that once Trump ran out of other ideas, he might try claiming that Nancy Pelosi doesn’t exist. Now we’re almost expecting him to try it.
