White House aides tried in vain to stop Trump from going on angry Rose Garden rampage: report

Published

President Donald Trump’s white-hot rampage in the White House Rose Garden on Wednesday drew some criticism even from some of his staunchest political allies, and a new report claims that Trump’s own White House aides weren’t happy about it either.

White House sources tell ABC News’ John Santucci and Katherine Faulders that the president’s own aides “tried to stop him [from] marching to the Rose Garden” and delivering his angry rant against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and special counsel Robert Mueller.

The sources say that Trump “was mad from first thing this morning” and that he went “over the edge” when he heard Pelosi accuse him of engaging in a “coverup.”

During his rant, Trump stood in front of a sign that featured catchphrases such as “No Collusion” and accused Democrats of committing crimes without presenting any evidence.

He also attacked Mueller’s prosecutors and accused them of having a bias against him.

“They hated President Trump,” Trump said of Mueller’s team. “They hated him, with a passion.”

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.
