Trump Tells Barr: “Arrest Somebody!”
That image is not a joke. Lisa Matassa, a country singer and big Trump fan, sent out this tweet and Trump retweeted it. You have to scroll a bit down on his twitter feed to see it, but I nerved myself up and did so.
Mediaite has this and a bunch of other tweets from the Pustulent Paleface, such as:
Politico has this story up as well: ‘Where are all of the arrests?’: Trump demands Barr lock up his foes
Donald Trump mounted an overnight Twitter blitz demanding to jail his political enemies and call out allies he says are failing to arrest his rivals swiftly enough. . . .
By early afternoon, Trump was letting loose his frustrations in an all-caps missive that seemed aimed at nobody in particular.
“DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS, THE BIGGEST OF ALL POLITICAL SCANDALS (IN HISTORY)!!! BIDEN, OBAMA AND CROOKED HILLARY LED THIS TREASONOUS PLOT!!! BIDEN SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO RUN – GOT CAUGHT!!!” Trump tweeted.
Politico calls it fixation over the Russia probe, which will still not go away even though Trump had his tame DNI release Russian-manufactured disinformation. (The DNI retained just barely enough self-respect to say the intelligence agencies thought it was unverified. He meant “bunk,” of course.)
But this smells more like panic, perhaps increased by all those drugs he’s on. When even Rasmussen says he’s losing by margins to high to cheat his way past, and reputable pollsters are given Biden stratospheric electoral vote projections, you can smell his fear from here (and we live in San Francisco!).
Forget waiting until the election. This is XXV Amendment stuff.
