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.

White supremacists infiltrated farmers’ markets — leaving shoppers and farmers terrified
While mulling about the bundles of kale and baskets of fresh peaches, some farmers' market shoppers are dodging fear and protests from white supremacists who are bringing their racism to another gathering place.
Farmers' markets are another soft target Americans must fear when going out and about. The New York Times investigated a Bloomington, Indiana stand where people can't get their gluten-free bread in peace. Justin Williams revealed a friend has been thinking about bringing his shotgun to the market for protection. One husband and wife team was accused of being white nationalists, after years of selling tomatoes and kale at the market.
Other gun groups start moving in as the NRA flounders to handle infighting and lawsuits
The National Rifle Association is in complete shambles as major members of the board are being shoved out after questioning chief Wayne LaPierre on his reported spending on his own wardrobe at a Beverly Hills boutique, his wife's hair, and demanding the NRA fund a $6 million mansion for him to live in. Three members were driven out of the board initially, and another major celebrity member quit very publicly last week.
Trump thinks he can block shipments to Venezuela by posting Navy ships along their coastline
In a strange turn of national security events, President Donald Trump thinks that he can cripple Venezuela by stationing Navy ships along the coastline of the country. He seems to have forgotten that Venezuela is connected to other countries on its south, west and southeastern border.
According to Axios, five current and former officials have either directly heard Trump say it or have been briefed on his plan.
The plan would be to blockade the country in the south Carribean for at least a year and a half.
