Trump Just Launched Bizarre Attack On Obama In Early Morning Twitter Tantrum

This morning President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of taking no action against the Russians for their alleged interference in the 2016 election because he expected Hillary Clinton to win.

Trump’s conclusion is that Obama didn’t “choke” into not taking action, but rather “colluded” or “obstructed.”

Trump’s accusations are clearly out of fear and frustration at his current situation.

He is currently facing multiple investigations that his campaign colluded with the Russian government during the election, and they’re closing in on the truth.

Trump is also accused of obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, and trying to avoid those allegations by asking intelligence chiefs to publicly announce it wasn’t obstruction.

The Justice Department, the FBI and the Senate and House Intelligence Committees are also investigating his team for possible links to the Kremlin, links that have all but been confirmed by the firing of former NSA Director Michael Flynn and various other well-documented connections.

Trump’s Tweets aren’t really original either. In an interview last week he argued that Obama did “nothing” over the interference in the election. This is pretty rich coming from a guy who a few weeks ago was saying there was no interference in the election whatsoever.

Trump told Fox and Friends:

“Well I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. But nobody wants to talk about that.

The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before they even — before the election. And I hardly see it. It’s an amazing thing.”

The President also set his Twitter sights on the Democrats, accusing them, completely unironically, of obstructing his administration days after Senate Republicans released a draft of their Obamacare replacement plan.

Republicans and Democrats alike have spoken out against the plan, which will likely remove healthcare for millions of Americans.

Trump’s descent into childish tu quoque accusations against his predecessor are the ramblings of a man who knows the gig is nearly up and has run out of things to say.

The constant investigations, meagre “achievements” and broken campaign promises are starting to take their toll on the President.

A case in point: today Trump demanded an apology from a man he harassed on Twitter for eight years and accused of illegal clandestine surveillance after alleging to the world that that same man was guilty of the crimes Trump is currently being investigated for.

Madness.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
