Donald trump spent part of his Sunday morning having another Twitter tantrum. In what has now become the norm for this Country, the Commander in Chief publicly attacks government employees and private United States citizens on a social media site that is viewed by the world. Allowing leaders across the globe to see just how unstable and out of control the United States has become under Trump’s leadership. The target of his fury this morning was former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was just fired from his position yesterday. And Robert Mueller, the person at the head of the Special Counsel investigating alleged collusion or conspiracy with Russia and/or Russian Nationals to interfere in the 2016 United States presidential election.
The tweets about McCabe and Mueller may seem to come out of left field without a little context (and a few rumors that the president may have just confirmed with these tweets). It was reported by multiple news outlets just yesterday that fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe took detailed notes of his encounters with the president. Then it was reported that McCabe turned those notes over to Robert Mueller and the Special Counsel a little while back. The other piece of rumor/news that may be relevant to these tweets, were reports that the Special Counsel sent Trump’s lawyers a set of questions they wanted to ask him pertaining to the investigation. If you believe these reports, then Trump’s tweets and the timing of these tweets may become more than just some ramblings from a crazed man. They become the erratic moves of a person who is attempting to get ahead of the story and prepare his followers for when this news does eventually break.
Quick fact check: Robert Mueller, just like most FBI agents and employees are registered Republicans. They’re most likely Conservative Republicans and not Trumpublicans, which to Donald Trump, is the same thing as being a Democrat, which in his mind is the same thing as being his enemy.
