We’ve all been awaiting Donald Trump’s inevitable response to the news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has filed Trump-Russia criminal charges, and that the arrests of Trump’s people will begin tomorrow. Now we’re finally seeing that response, and while it’s as unhinged as expected, it’s also a rather desperate cry for help. Trump is so panicked, he’s begging his remaining allies to “DO SOMETHING!” to save him.
Here’s what Trump tweeted on Sunday morning: “Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?) ,the Uranium to Russia deal, the 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more. Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia, “collusion,” which doesn’t exist. The Dems are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R’s are now fighting back like never before. There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out. DO SOMETHING!”
As usual, not one word of Trump’s Twitter rant is factually accurate or true. But it does reveal just how severely he’s now panicking. He’s not threatening to do anything, or vowing to take any action. Like the anti-leader that he is, Trump is begging others to “do something” to save him. It might be a little late on that front, with Mueller set to arrest one or more of his Russia co-conspirators tomorrow. But Trump wasn’t done, as he added one more tweet which revealed just who it is he’s hoping will save him.
Trump tweeted “All of this “Russia” talk right when the Republicans are making their big push for historic Tax Cuts & Reform. Is this coincidental? NOT!” In other words, he’s publicly reminding the Republican Congress that it needs to protect him a bit longer if it wants to be able to pass its tax giveaway scam for the wealthy. However, it may be past the point where anyone is even willing to try to save him.
