Donald Trump Has A Meltdown Over 'Fake' New York Times Report Even As He Admits McGahn Spoke to Mueller

Well, Trump is on a tear again. And it's the fault of the New York Times, which he doesn't read and is dumb and stupid and shut up.

The failing @nytimes wrote a Fake piece today implying that because White House Councel Don McGahn was giving hours of testimony to the Special Councel, he must be a John Dean type “RAT.” But I allowed him and all others to testify - I didn’t have to. I have nothing to hide......

It seems instructive that Donald Trump, walking garbage fire and man at the center of numerous investigations into potentially illegal acts he has undertaken both as candidate and pretzeldent, considers John Dean a "RAT.". We should probably make a note of that.

No Collusion and No Obstruction, except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats. All of the resignations and corruption, yet heavily conflicted Bob Mueller refuses to even look in that direction. What about the Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Strzok lies to Congress, or Crooked’s Emails!

This is what happens when grandpa spends all his days watching Fox News. His cabinet has been roiled by scandal and resignations to an extent not seen since the Watergate days, but since Fox News doesn't cover it he doesn't remember it's happening. Instead, Something Something Witch Hunt.

Some members of the media are very Angry at the Fake Story in the New York Times. They actually called to complain and apologize - a big step forward. From the day I announced, the Times has been Fake News, and with their disgusting new Board Member, it will only get worse!

Ah yes, the raging incompetent's favorite lie: What My Invisible Friends Are Saying. The odds that reporters have been calling Biff here to apologize for writing stories about his crimez is approximately zero. The odds that Donald spends hours of each day imagining this happening, however, are considerably higher.

Study the late Joseph McCarthy, because we are now in period with Mueller and his gang that make Joseph McCarthy look like a baby! Rigged Witch Hunt!

Donald Trump has in his hand a list of reporters who are very ashamed that they are writing stories about him, and if you don't believe him you're like Joe McCarthy.

For the record, the New York Times piece that Donald has worked himself up into a multi-hour tantrum over reported that White House counsel Don McGahn has been cooperating with the Mueller probe investigating possible White House obstruction of justice and that Donald, being Donald, may not have fully understood that it was not Don McGahn's job to lie for him.

While the story does suggest Donald may perhaps be confused about some things, that by itself doesn't seem worthy of a full-on Twitter meltdown. Perhaps there is something else going on here?
