After spending Monday nursing a ragegasm, President Donald Trump began Tuesday with a Tweetstorm sounding off and playing the victim.
The internet was quick to respond to the president's tweets with their own fact-checks as well as morning mockery.
NBC executive producer Christina Ginn sent Trump an explainer about what attorney-client privilege is and the limitations of the rule that allows for a "crime-fraud exception."
