I left this part out on purpose:
Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2017
Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal. He told stories about his Vietnam battles and....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2017
...conquests, how brave he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child. Now he judges collusion?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2017
Mr. President: Your bullying hasn't worked before and it won't work now. No one is above the law.— Richard Blumenthal (@SenBlumenthal) August 7, 2017
Blumenthal is right, but what's telling is that Trump thinks he's winning some kind of victory with this argument. They really are the rantings of a child, not a grown man; of a person lost in delusion, not someone dealing with the facts in front of him. Trump is shooting the messenger; it's classic ad hominem, and it has nothing to do with the two grand juries investigating him, his campaign, and his family and administration. Blumenthal could be a looney in a clown suit spraying the interviewer with a seltzer bottle, it would make no difference to the investigations. The frightening part here is Trump thinks is this acceptable, and clever, appropriate and to the point.This issue isn't about me - it's about the Special Counsel's independence and integrity.— Richard Blumenthal (@SenBlumenthal) August 7, 2017
And this afternoon, he can't let go:
How much longer will the failing nytimes, with its big losses and massive unfunded liability (and non-existent sources), remain in business?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2017
I'm guessing the next NYT interview will be in September?
And back to Blumenthal:
I think Senator Blumenthal should take a nice long vacation in Vietnam, where he lied about his service, so he can at least say he was there— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2017
The petulant child always has to think he has the last word. He didn't.
