President Donald Trump continued his rant against special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Friday by declaring the entire thing "total bullsh*t."

In particular, the president lashed out at aides' sworn testimony in front of Mueller that he believed were simply designed to make him look bad.

"Because I never agreed to testify, it was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the 'Report' about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad)," Trump fumed. "This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened."

Trump's attack on the Mueller report came despite the fact that the president claimed it was a "total exoneration" for him, even though it documented ten potential instances of obstruction of justice based on testimony by current and former White House officials.

Earlier on Friday, Trump took a veiled swipe at former White House counsel Don McGahn, whom the president had chided for taking notes of their exchanges.
