CNN's John King was aghast on Thursday after President Trump launched another unhinged tweet storm this morning, saying it was nothing but "taxpayer-funded lies."

"Is he as detached from reality as he sometimes appears?" wondered King, questioning the president's mental competency. "Does he have things in his head that simply aren't true?"

Apologizing to any Trump supporters watching, the typically bland CNN host launched into a full bore attack on the president's truthfulness.

"We have the tax funded lies all the time," he said. "Read his Twitter feed: it's not true."

"You pay for that!" exclaimed King, as he slammed the president's "not true" conspiracy theories about voter fraud. And he ridiculed the president's "delicious" early morning attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller, saying "the fact machine breaks."

"He tries to stoke... what?" he asked, rhetorically.
