President Donald Trump on Monday morning obsessively tweeted about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation more than a year and a half after the probe ended.

In a series of tweets, Trump pushed the Department of Justice to prosecute the investigators on Mueller’s team, demanded that “action must be taken” over reports that Mueller’s team wiped data from their phones, and called former FBI agent Peter Stzrok an “idiot” and a liar.

The president also called the FBI “pathetic” for not doing more to investigate Mueller’s team.

Trump’s continued focus on the Mueller investigation, which wrapped up in March 2019, comes at a time when polls suggest he is significantly trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden with just 50 days to go until the 2020 presidential election.

The United States at the moment is also dealing with multiple crises, including a pandemic that has so far killed more than 194,000 Americans; an economic recession that has left millions of Americans out of work; and massive forest fires that are displacing hundreds of thousands of residents in California and Oregon.

No one with ‘an IQ over 80’ should not see Trump as a ‘sociopath’ on the debate stage: Conservative editor

Published

On Tuesday, writing for The Bulwark, conservative editor Jonathan Last tore into President Donald Trump's performance at the first presidential debate on Tuesday evening in Cleveland.

"Honestly: I cannot understand how anyone with an IQ over 80 could have watched this disgrace and not come away understanding that the president of the United States is a sociopath," wrote Last. "But I’ll try to put myself in the mind of voters and tell you what I saw."

"He was a doughy, orange honey-badger, yelling, shouting, cajoling, needling and — this is the important part — never shutting up," wrote Last. "If you are a fan of the Trump lifestyle brand — if you have a Trump flag on your boat and wear a MAGA hat because you love pissing off the brown girl with the nose ring at Starbucks — then I suspect that you thought this was the greatest performance by any debater in the history of debates ... On the other hand, it’s not clear to me that Trump’s act was effective with undecided voters."

Trump has no strategy left against Biden other than to ‘burn it all down’: analysis

Published

on

On Wednesday, analyzing the first presidential debate in Cleveland, Chuck Todd, Mark Murray, Carrie Dann, and Melissa Holzberg's key takeaway was that President Donald Trump's only strategy is to "burn it all down."

"Trailing in the polls with five weeks to go, President Trump didn’t use last night’s debate to disqualify his opponent or outline his vision for the next four years," they wrote. "Instead, he decided to burn down the debate — by constantly interrupting, not engaging on the substance, offering falsehood after falsehood, and questioning the legitimacy of the upcoming election."
