Zero Hedge -- Judging by his ongoing Tweet storm this morning, in which he first praised the market's performance, then dedicated the next four tweets to leakers, fabricated sources, "fake news" and Russia, president Trump does not appear to be in a good mood.
In his two most recent tweets sent between 9 and 10 am on Thursday, Trump reverted to his favorite topic: the interplay between the "fake news" media, the "discredited democrats", and the ongoing Russian scandal which the resignation of Mike Flynn only managed to blow up to unseen proportions.
"The Democrats had to come up with a story as to why they lost the election, and so badly (306), so they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news!" — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 16, 2017In a previous tweet, trump accused the press - really the WaPo, NYT and CNN - for making up their sources.
FAKE NEWS media, which makes up stories and "sources," is far more effective than the discredited Democrats - but they are fading fast!
Trump's latest outrage followed his accusation that the intelligence community is leaking information to the media since Flynn's resignation. Flynn's resignation came after reports, citing multiple unidentified sources, that Flynn had misled top White House officials about the contents of phone calls he had with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. before Trump was sworn in.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that Flynn resigned because of an "eroding level of trust" between him and the president.
Trump often hits the media, accusing reporters of biased and dishonest coverage against him. In recent weeks he has consistently referred to certain outlets as "fake news" and the NYT as "failing." Earlier Thursday, Trump called on The New York Times and other publications to apologize.
"Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years," the president tweeted. "Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize" and then warned "low-life" leakers that "they will be caught" now that the "spotlight has finally been put" on them.
Blog Author's Comments: The people who actually care about America elected the most non-political President that our country now needs. It is amusing how the press, Democrats and many so-called Republicans all hate Trump, but unknowingly, are giving him more credibility every day. I love how the left has now become, Pro-War, Pro-CIA, anti-capitalist, Pro-Communist, pro-violence to stifle free speech, pro establishment. The true colors are shining through. Its great, going full retard is a sign that they are dying. Now that the heat has been turned up we know Trump is actually really working hard to drain the swamp. If you are catching flack it’s because you’re over the target. 63,000,000 Deplorables are behind you President Trump.
Donald Trump is not just angry, he's pissed, and rightly so. I would have liked to have seen any of the last three presidents treated like this, with this level of hatred and I wouldn't really complain. But this is just plain ignorant. The people who are paying attention and realize, that if we did not have Donald J. Trump as our president, Hillary would have planted her fat ass in the White House to continue what Obama had started, and he plans on continuing his own war against Trump.
As soon an Donald Trump was sworn into office he was ready to go to work, to fulfill the promises he spoke of while campaigning and the items that he believes will drastically help the country. But it seems Congress has been bribed to stand still and twiddle their thumbs, the Establishment is attacking him with frivolous information and the left have devolved into radical crazed people who refer to themselves as journalists, what a joke this is. President Trump will overcome all of this adversity and is and will be the president that the country needs at this most difficult time.
