Trump, the turd

Insults, misstatements, exaggerations and outright falsehoods began from the White House just after sunrise.

Trump started the 4th by taking credit for averting a war with North Korea (that he almost started), charged without proof that President Barack Obama had secretly granted citizenship to thousands of Iranians as part of nuclear disarmament negotiations and suggested that customers of Harley-Davidson were psychic.

He called a sitting congresswoman “crazy” and “corrupt.”

He branded the National Security Agency’s handling of millions of telephone call records “a disgrace” — and suggested it was connected to the special counsel investigation into whether his campaign worked with Russia to interfere in the 2016 elections.

“Witch Hunt!” he wrote at the end of that tweet.

The posts had two tired themes: Attacks on Mr. Trump’s “rivals,” and trumpeting his "achievements" in the face of broadening public criticism.
