'A child screaming out in anger': Trump mocked for wide-ranging rant declaring 'presidential harassment!'
President Donald Trump kicked off Tuesday with a wide-ranging rant focused on Monday's House hearing highlighting the Mueller report.
Trump's rambling and incoherent tweets made little sense. For example, this one in which he may or may not be quoting Fox News, saying, "The Greatest Witch Hunt of all time continues. All crimes were by the other side, but the Committee refuses to even take a look. Deleting 33,000 Emails is the real Obstruction - and much more!"

Or this thread, in which Trump appears to be quoting his top defender, Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Googling the quotes brings up only Trump's tweets, so it's unclear if these are actual quotes.
This one clearly is all Trump:
PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1560253903
There were more, of course.
And Trump is being roundly mocked for them, for instance by HuffPost editor-at-large and Sirius XM Progress host Michelangelo Signorile, who sums up Trump's morning:
A child screaming out in anger and frustration. https://t.co/TA7iJhxsFZ— firstname.lastname@example.org (@email@example.com) 1560254339
As did others:
Honestly, I feel we are all harassed by the constant chaos of this president. #votehimout https://t.co/aDQvaen4ey— Neera Tanden🌻 (@Neera Tanden🌻) 1560254260
There was also wide-spread mocking of this tweet which Trump deleted then replaced to fix a typo:

Here, the author of the Bloomberg piece Trump is using to spread falsehoods directly pushes back against the president:
No Mr. Trump, it has nothing at all to do with the euro. Nothing about the exchange rate movements in the last 15 y… https://t.co/UEHNjWcmKA— Leonid Bershidskiy (@Leonid Bershidskiy) 1560255632
And the even Bloomberg Opinion corrects the president:
