Day 44: Unhinged President
The only thing of note today was completely un-noteworthy. This morning, Trump once again went off on a deranged twitter rant. I'm not sure why people even pay attention to him any more. His tweets targeted Obama (amongst others), with claims that Trump Tower had its phonelines tapped by the former President. He offered zero evidence for this, and multiple sources have pointed out that the DOJ would order wiretaps, not the President, and for a court to approve a wiretap request from the DOJ would require a pretty hefty suspicion of wrongdoing in the first place. This twitter rant fits the usual MO of deflection for Trump, given that his administration is presently under scrutiny for its plethora of Russian ties.
