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 associates worry his gloating about Ginsburg replacement will blow up in his face: report

Published

According to interviews in Politico with former associates of Donald Trump, the president is reveling in the fact he may very well be able to make a third lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court before the November election but it is only a matter of time before he goes overboard and causes another controversy.

With the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the president is riding high because it has knocked reports of a poor economy and over 200,000 dead from the coronavirus pandemic off the front pages giving Trump a reprieve as the election nears.
