President Donald Trump evidently woke up angry Tuesday morning, and spent the first hours of his day airing his grievances on Twitter.

The president fired off 11 tweets before 8 a.m. attacking specific members of the media, while praising "Fox & Friends" and a friendly Fox Business reporter, and urging the U.S. Congress to get involved in monitoring Twitter for political content.

Here are the six most bizarre tweets Trump posted -- in just one morning.

Trump inadvertently called attention to a scathing New York Times column by Paul Krugman, whom he called "stupid" and "obsessed with hatred."

Trump followed that up with an attack on Krugman's employer, which he denounced as "the enemy of the people," and repeated his false claim that the newspaper apologized to him for its 2016 election coverage.

Next he moved on to an attack on his Democratic opponents and the news media, in general, which he claimed had been driven "totally insane" by the Republican agenda, and Trump promised more of that.

Less than 10 minutes later, Trump whined that he should be "immune from criticism" because the economy was doing well, and apparently forgot that President Bill Clinton was impeached during an economic boom 20 years ago.

Trump next roared at MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, who he derided as "dumb and sick" for pointing out the president's poll numbers had sunk after the Mueller report to levels he hadn't plumbed since he had praised neo-Nazi supporters following the deadly Charlottesville rally.

The president then turned his attention to Twitter itself, quoting Daniel Ives, a guest who appeared on Maria Bartiromo's show on Fox Business. Trump threatened congressional oversight of the social media service in an apparent effort to boost conservative content.
