Today’s Trump Twitter Meltdown: Everything Is Fake News Except Fox And Don’t Forget That Hillary Lost

The Hill reports:

President Trump early Wednesday blasted the “fake news media” and leaks from the intelligence community after reports emerged that senior aides with his presidential campaign were in contact with Russian officials. Trump in his first tweet of the morning said the “fake news media” is “going crazy with conspiracy theories and blind hatred.” Tump slammed MSNBC and CNN, but said Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” is “great!”

Trump’s tweets follow reports in The New York Times and CNN that campaign aides were in “constant” contact with Russian officials. The officials cited in the Times report said they have not discovered collaboration between the Trump campaign staff and Russian officials related to the hacking of Democratic organizations. The Intelligence Community in a report released last month concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin called for an influence campaign in an effort to help Trump win the White House.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Information given illegally, yet its fake. Poor orange #45, he can’t keep his thoughts straight.

    • Riceyal

      Also, being just like Russia – is that supposed to be good or bad? I’m confused.

      • David Walker

        Careful, 45. Pooty spank.

    • Amanda B. Rekendwith

      And he’s not even calling Hillary Crooked anymore.

      • Kruhn

        Crooked is as crooked does. Or it takes a Mangled Apricot Hellbeast to know crooked.

      • gwhiz007

        It was projection. All of the things he went after her for he’s done or is doing now.

    • Alpha Tango

      The last tweet confirms the accuracy of the information. Just sayin’

      • Bonobo

        Agreed… DT says “Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?)” So Donnie, that means that NYT and the WaPo have the most current, and accurate news.

    • Roger

      All information seems legit, but I´m not sure its the #45…

    • Bonobo

      Won’t be long now… zzzzz

    • gwhiz007

      Poor us, we have to live under a man who can barely articulate himself…with nuclear codes.

    • wmforr

      Lock him up! Lock him up!

  • dcurlee

    Am gonna be so happy to see you go down in flames.

    • ZRAinSWVA

      The problem is, there are so many uninformed Americans who haven’t even heard about these issues, or if they have it’s been spun in a positive manner or minimized. These people will be furious with what they perceive to be ‘liberal activist {blah blah blah}’ and I think it could get very, very ugly.

  • Canadian Observer

    Nonsense doesn’t require a hyphen… donny wasted one of his characters.

    • Rambie

      It’s not the only thing about him that’s wasted.

    • Frostbite

      Wasted his life, and our time.

  • Dutchlander

    Every morning, when I see his first tweets, my first thought is “Ha! Baby is awake!”

    • Bryan

      Really wondering when the last time he slept was.

    • vorpal

      Someone needs to burp him. It might make him a little less fussy.

      • Rolf

        I’m wondering if this is why Melania is keeping such a distance from him and the White House. She knows the shit will eventually hit the fan and doesn’t want to get splattered.

      • grada3784

        More likely, a diaper change.

    • justme

      and the argument.

      “It’s YOUR turn to change him!!!”

    • Joe in PA

      And I think ‘what fresh hell is this’?

  • sadoldguy

    If its fake why fire Flynn?

  • Bryan

    With the reports, it feels like we’re close to something momentous. His admin is unraveling in real time.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    I noticed this on CNN last night, Republicans answering questions about FlynnTrumpRussia by changing the subject to Hillary’s campaign.

    • Frostbite

      They miss her as much as we do. Hard to blame Hillary or Obama for the current debacle they are in now, this is all their doing and they don’t even have the balls to own it.

      • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

        They think that deflection worked so well for them during the campaign,, why not fall back on it now? But Hillary’s campaign is completely irrelevant now.

        • olandp

          Kellyann is still doing it, at least she was yesterday.

          When she is interviewed someone needs to stand behind her with an air horn and blast her every time she says “But Hillary…”

      • yes b’y
      • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

        Alas, we don’t have Checkers to kick around any more.
        Sad!

    • CanuckDon

      They’re clinging to the argument that all of this is conspiracy theory. Unfortunately, that’s what the truth is up against.

  • Faux News = Foe News

    Pains me to say that a lot of Americans hold this opinion. Yes, they are old; yes, they are less educated; yes, they are religious delusionals; yes, they are oxycontin-addled. But so is much of America.

    We have met the enemy and they are us.

    • Mrs. Councillor Nugent
      • BudClark

        Truer words were never spoken.

    • fenraven

      Please don’t lump all old people together. Lots and lots of us can’t stand Agent Orange and see clearly the danger he represents. But you’re correct about the less educated. They’re terrified of everything and don’t know how to think, much less discern truth from lies.

      • Gerry Fisher

        On the one hand, I hear you. On the other hand, hasn’t your opinion about “us” (American citizens) shifted since the election? IMO, there are a LOT more fascists and people who tolerate neo-Nazis and overt racists that I had imagined before.

        • fenraven

          I suspect they’ve always been there, but in the shadows. They knew their opinions were not approved of by the majority, so they kept their racism and bigotry to themselves (and passed it on to their children). Under the new administration, they’re free to express their hatred out loud, and that freedom, after decades of keeping silent, is extremely dangerous.

    • Ninja0980

      And they vote.

  • poor thing. i feel for him. oh, wait, i don’t in any way.

  • Frostbite

    Jeeze the meltdown going on in this man’s mind, assuming he has a shred of sanity left. Should we survive this, it will be something studied for years.

  • David F.

    The only thing fake in these tweets is the orange shitgibbon who sent them (and of course Faux News). #45/SCROTUS

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Yes, Donnie, as the dominoes are beginning to fall, you keep whining and throwing tantrums. It will make your crushing, international humiliation even more delicious.

    As others have pointed out, Watergate to about three years to unravel. Donnie and hopefully his entire evil cabal look like they will be toast, before summer.

  • Jeff

    A focused, intelligent investigation needs to be conducted not by buffoons in Congress but by someone who is trusted and respected by all: And that person needs to reveal that Donald Trump did not win the election. I totally get why our former President is vacationing in the Caribbean, but I hope he is considering how his quickly fading power can help our country — not to get “back on track,” but to get onto “the right track for Planet Earth.” Protesting ain’ gonna do it. People with connections, Get busy please!

    • BudClark

      If Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton weren’t the kind of people they are, I’d be tempted to say that neither one of them owes us anything, after the way Obama was treated for the last eight years, and Clinton for the last THIRTY years.

      And I wouldn’t blame them ONE BIT.

      They both love our country. I think after a period of rest and recovery, they’ll rejoin the fight.

      BUT … I have to ask this question: where are the YOUNGER, up-and-coming Democrats, and are THEY being trained / supported by the Party Establishment?

      Obama is only in his early fifties; he could serve a nice, LONG term on SCOTUS … my fondest dream … but Clinton will be too old to run in 2020; so will Bernie.

      It’s time to pass the torch to the next generation … CAREFULLY, and RESPONSIBLY.

  • Paige Turner™

    I think that we are watching the beginning of the end. This is now completely indefensible and treasonous. Russian planes buzzing US ships and a Russian spy ship off the coast of Delaware plus this means the end is nigh for the Trump Presidency.

    • justme

      “Russian spy ship off the coast of Delaware”

      What the hell is there to see there?!!!

      /s

      • popebuck1

        Hoping to get a glimpse of Joe Biden, obviously. He’s like Elvis.

        • justme

          I thought they would have to NJ to what Christie at the beach!!

  • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    The Trump train is such a trainwreck everyday. Soon, we won’t have any railway left.

    • Frostbite

      They were running on a railway? Who knew???

      • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        well, Kellyanne was telling everyone the president has full confidence the Trump train is running very well on the runway catwalk, which currently is showing Ivanka’s 2051 Summer Collection, so…

      • grada3784

        Cheetolini’s idol, Mussolini, made the trains run on time.

        Only good thing I ever heard said about Il Duce. Probably more than will ever be said about Trump.

  • greenmanTN

    As it turns out, it really is hard out here for a pimp.

  • Homo Erectus
  • Gaymurcan

    “Fox” has been fucked and fake since it started as the propaganda arm of His Royal Lowness George The Lesser and his band of sick, torture-obsessed zombie elephants. Hillary Clinton won by 3+ MILLION American votes cast. The rest of the current fiasco has likely been written on the back of a cheap vodka-soaked cocktail napkin in an airport bar in Moscow. Trump & Co. belong in LEAVENWORTH, or perhaps that nice secure SuperMax in Colorado.

    • Todd20036

      NICE SYNOPSIS!

    • Guantanamo?

      • Paula

        Gitmo is too nice and tropical. I’m thinking a prison on some island off the coast of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

        • ColdCountry

          Azkaban

      • wmforr

        “Waterboarding and worse…”

    • BudClark

      CORRECTION: under Leavenworth, in the pre-Civil War dungeons they no longer use.

      Or is that Alcatraz?

      Senior moment … (sigh) …

      • DonnaLee

        I don’t think an island can have dungeons. If the island is tall I could see it. But we’re talking sub-basement here.

    • Librarykid

      The SuperMax is the one said to drive prisoners mad from lack of human contact. They don’t even get to see guards. All doors open electrically and I don’t think they even get to look at the sky with the way the windows are constructed.

  • Todd20036

    Honestly, it’s meltdowns like this that give me hope. Even if Trump isn’t impeached (and lord knows, he’s done worse in 4 weeks than Nixon did in 4 years), his government is too nonfunctional to commit atrocities like camps or wars.
    It really might end up being ok. For the wrong reasons maybe, but I’m ok with that.

    • Kruhn

      Remember, Hitler’s regime was dysfunctional and look how much damage they did.

      • Todd20036

        Not like this. A big difference between Trump and Hitler is Trump has the internet and is making use of it. All of his fuckups are there for everyone to see.
        Hitler managed to keep his crap hidden until he became established.

  • ErikDC

    Thanks again for letting us know you do nothing but watch cable news all day, Mr. President.

    • Todd20036

      and all night. Man looks like he was ridden hard and put away wet.

    • Frostbite

      What else is he going to do? Not like foreign leaders are lining up to meet with him, heck even Superbowl winners are saying “No thanks!” He must get tired of screaming at KC and Putin probably isn’t taking his non-recorded calls any longer.

  • Tomcat

    Glad to hear FAUX News is honest and great to Trump.

  • Dejerrity Mycron

    Wow, I was predicting two years max. We might be saying “Hello President Pence” even sooner.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I’m hoping that Pence gets bounced too.

      • BlindBill

        pence covered his ass …he will just say he asked questions and did not get truthful answers…. and gleefully take charge as god’s servant in the white house.

    Now try being President Obama who managed to deal with this for 8 years!!!

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Seriously, every time he whines, he makes Obama’s balls look that much bigger. Because I remember the picket signs and they were AWFUL.

  • Cosmo Tupper

    Go ahead and shut down all the media you don’t like. That’s what you want to do anyway. That way you can report your own fake news (propoganda) like communist KJU.

  • vorpal

    All I hear is: argle bargle jiggery pokery!!!

    Trumpy-poo: if you don’t want people to hate you, stop giving them so many reasons to do so.

  • this is OT, but uplifting. the folks at Soma.fm are kicking ass right now and have been for the last few weeks with Revolutionary music. they know all the good stuff. i like to use computers with background sound and sometimes even video, it helps keep my mind in productive zones. it’s nice to hear music that affirms that we are a people who can do what we must, when we must, and not to be afraid.

  • Galvestonian

    Methinks that he’s a bit worried that we’re sniffing around the truth of how he actually got elected – It’s not panic just yet – full-blown panic will be something like a fox in the henhouse – a lot of noise, feathers & shit flying everywhere, blood and a lot of dead chickens.

    • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

      But…

      Winner winner chicken dinner… fox wins!

  • Earl

    Unless a terrorist attacks the USA, in the next few days, I don’t see how Trump can remain president.

    Even then, he might not survive such a thing.

    • vorpal

      A terrorist is attacking the US: his name is Trump.
      He sure terrifies the fuck out of me.

      • Earl

        he’s not really a terrorist, he’s a greedy old bastard who’s been caught with his hands in the till. Well, he’s not a traditional terrorist.

    • Treant

      Even then, it’d be an obvious false flag operation and he’d probably be out of office a few hours sooner. 🙂

      • Earl

        Depends on what got hit. A Reichstag fire with the politicians in the building would prevent his being impeached. 🙁

        • Treant

          Hopefully a quorum would make it out through the fire doors. 🙂

          Also, the Capitol building is a lot of granite (fun fact: background radiation levels inside the Capitol building are much higher than normal because of this). The building itself won’t burn easily.

          • Earl

            But I heard tell it makes for a great place to stable your horses. 🙂

    How will history judge this hopefully brief President?

    • BobSF_94117

      The GOP will never ever accept a repeal of the Electoral College because it gives rural states an advantage, BUT maybe we can at least get them to agree to a post-inaugural confirmation re-vote, say, after two months.

    • Marides48
    • BudClark

      That business of allowing The Man With The Football to be photographed was REALLY unconscionable.

      While I’m SURE The Man changes (probably daily), now the Russians KNOW what The Football looks like, and a good sharpshooter could take out ANYONE carrying ANYTHING *remotely* resembling The Football, God help us!

      I don’t think the implications of that whole debacle have really sunk in yet.

  • Superman

    It seems insane to state that Fox News is the only honest outlet and everybody else is fake news. He can’t really believe that.
