President Donald Trump’s Twitter account keeps getting more bizarre. In a Monday night tweet, Trump appeared to upload a video clip of Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show where he compared the Russia investigation to Trump’s racist birtherism.
While no one was ever indicted, convicted or jailed in the racist scandal against former President Barack Obama, Carlson tried to claim that both attacks are fake.
The president has called the investigation a “hoax” or a “witch hunt” for nearly two years, and his office is already preparing for the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report. However, if they’re planning to attack the Mueller report by comparing it to one of Trump’s other scandals, they probably should think again.
You can see Carlson’s commentary in the Trump tweet below:

The Vatican’s latest official document is an insult to LGBTQ people — and to history
During the fourth-century, Sergius and Bacchus, two inseparable Syrian soldiers in the Roman emperor Galerius’ army, were outed as secret Christians when they refused to pay homage to the god Jupiter. The incensed emperor ordered them beaten, chained, and then, as their fourth-century hagiographer explained, paraded through the barracks with “all other military garb removed… and women’s clothing placed on them.” Both men were sent to trial; Bacchus refused to abjure his faith in Christ and was beaten to death by his fellow Roman soldiers as punishment. The night before Sergius was to be similarly asked to recant his Christianity, the spirit of Bacchus appeared before his partner. With his “face as radiant as an angel’s, wearing an officer’s uniform,” Bacchus asked, “Why do you grieve and mourn, brother? If I have been taken from you in body, I am still with you in the bond of union.”
Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’
President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.
The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."
Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Trump betting he can win re-election by spinning new conspiracy theories to explain investigations: report
Special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into President Donald Trump's association with Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election may be over. But that does not mean the president is free from oversight.
According to Politico, Trump is still facing 15 civil and criminal probes by at least nine federal, state, and municipal agencies on everything from obstruction of justice to campaign finance violations to using his office to enrich his family and businesses. But president is not bothered by these investigations — or at least, he believes that he can use them to his political advantage.
