Thirty-six minutes ahead of Attorney General William Barr’s press event during which he is expected to spin his version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s attacks on the U.S. and any possible collusion or obstruction by President Donald Trump and his team, the President posted a video titled “No Collusion – No Obstruction!” that appeared to be a victory lap meant for post-Mueller report release.
The video, complete with a musical score, shows Trump, over and over and over, repeating “no collusion,” and “no obstruction.”
Since Trump knows what’s in the Mueller report, it would seem more appropriate for him to wait to release this video until after Barr speaks and after Barr’s version of the Mueller report has been released.

Trump, expectedly, was mercilessly mocked on social media.
Let’s see what Robert Mueller said.

We have found "collusion" – it's between Bill Barr and Donald Trump. Can we get a special 2 for 1 impeachment deal?! #TrumpColluded

Innocence speaks for itself.
It doesn't require spin, redactions, or obfuscation. It doesn't need to be interpreted a certain way, or listened to through a special FoxNews lens.

Boris Johnson ‘tremendously humiliated’ Donald Trump on a global scale at G-7 meeting: CNN analyst
United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson was one of President Donald Trump's favorite people to take over for Theresa May when she resigned this summer. But Johnson also mocked the U.S. president and humiliated him on a global scale, said New Yorker reporter Olivia Nuzzi.
During a panel discussion on CNN Sunday, CNN's Ryan Lizza opened by saying that Johnson is in a tight spot as he's trying to negotiate Brexit while serving as an international leader to the G-7. Johnson also needs to negotiate a trade deal with Trump, but he clearly is going about it in the worst possible way.
Trump allies acquiring ‘dirt’ on journalists to take them down during the 2020 election
President Donald Trump's war against the media has taken a next step. According to The New York Times, Trump's allies have been compiling information on reporters at CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times to strike back because the president believes they "aggressively investigated" him.
The information was revealed Sunday using information disclosed by associates of conservative Arthur Schwartz, who is spearheading the project. Schwartz is an adviser to Donald Trump Jr. and previously worked with Steve Bannon.
Black MSNBC host schools Joe Walsh on N-word tweets being racist: ‘Hard to put the toothpaste back in’
Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is like a lighter version of President Donald Trump, said Republican strategist Shermichael Singleton. But MSNBC host Kendis Gibson couldn't help but ask Walsh about his history of racism.
In an interview after Walsh's announcement, Gibson asked hard questions about Walsh's history of racism. Walsh profusely apologized to former President Barack Obama, who Walsh waged war against during his tenure in the White House. While Wash was not a supporter of the racist birther campaign that Trump perpetuated, Wash does have a history of using racist terms on Twitter.
