President Donald Trump wasted no time lashing out at Andrew McCabe after the former FBI Deputy Director revealed Thursday top officials at the Dept. of Justice were so disturbed by the President’s actions they seriously discussed if they could invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
The President went ballistic, posting to Twitter attacks against McCabe and his other top targets, that are among his most juvenile to date.
McCabe was fired as Deputy FBI Director literally hours before he would have been eligible for retirement and his pension, in what McCabe has insisted was a politically-motivated attack.
“Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a ‘poor little Angel’ when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax – a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of ‘insurance policy’ in case I won….,” Trump tweeted.

Nearly none of that is true.
“Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left,” Trump tweeted, not acknowledging that he was behind those removals, including the ones of agents and officials who were forced out.
“McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign – he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Again, literally none of that is true.
On Twitter, many responded with mockery, disgust, and actual facts disproving his lies:
Your own former personal attorney stated that he couldn't allow you to sit down with Mueller without a written script, lest you perjure yourself. https://t.co/uW0TNBXf8LADVERTISEMENT

.@POTUS is entering Enraged Tyrant Zone, where his revenge will be dangerous in a 2nd Term. The @GOP allowing this man to go without a challenger in 2020 is Unleashing a Monster. https://t.co/JN9tBOae0OADVERTISEMENT

You don't have a wall.
Russia isn't a hoax.
No one is fooled by this stompy-foot act, Grandpa Ranty. https://t.co/I1P95dCdTjADVERTISEMENT

You don't believe in anything except stuffing your own pockets at the expense of any sucker who'll believe you, a third-rate racist carnival barker spewing lies constantly.
You are a DISGRACE to humanity.

President Trump continues to berate anyone who can tie him to the many Russians contacts he has, he exhibits guilt everyday with his behavior. https://t.co/5nqbPgj2l7

Part of me is actually glad that our president has the mental capacity of a child. It means that even *I* could become president one day. https://t.co/YMwmcG1XYR

On the anniversary of the Margery Stoneman Douglas mass shooting, on Valentine's day, the only thing on this guy's mind is the fact that he's going to go to jail if he can't succeed in undermining the criminal case against him. From his POV, I guess it makes sense… https://t.co/BuUXwhgSVq
