Trump declares himself free from 'shackles' -- and threatens to burn the GOP to the ground

If Donald Trump is going down, he's going to try to bring down everyone else with him.


In a furious tweet storm on Tuesday, Trump ripped House Speaker Paul Ryan for his "weak and ineffective" leadership and accused him of being disloyal for saying on Monday that he was finished defending Trump's candidacy.

Even more ominously, Trump declared that Ryan's betrayal had freed him from his "shackles" -- and he could now campaign for the presidency without any kind of filter at all.

He then went back to trashing the party that nominated him for president for not sticking by him 100% after his infamous "pussy grab" video leaked last week.

Trump has never been a model of restraint, so his vow to throw away whatever previous inhibitions he had likely means that the final month of the 2016 presidential campaign is going to be absolutely filthy.
