Trump is melting down under grilling from reporters about yesterday’s hearings.
Now, imagine what would happen if there were embarrassing hearings coming up every day rather than a six-week House vacation.

Now that is somebody completely losing his shit!
And apparently this is now Trump’s new trigger.

Asked by reporters from the Washington Post and CBS News about Mueller’s comments, Trump accused the women of being “fake news” and deliberately asking a dishonest question.
“When you saw Robert Mueller’s statement, the earlier statement and then he did a recap, he did a correction later on in the afternoon,” Trump claimed. “And you know what that correction was and you still asked the question, you know why? Because you’re fake news and you’re one of the worst.”
“And let me just tell you,” he continued. “The fact that you even asked that question, you’re fake news because you know what, he totally corrected himself in the afternoon and you know that just as well as anybody,” Trump stammered.
The president was incorrectly referencing Mueller’s remarks from his second hearing of the day, before the House Intelligence Committee. Clarifying earlier comments he’d made about how Trump would’ve been indicted were he not president of the United States, Mueller stated, “That is not the correct way to say it. As we say in the report, and I said at the opening, we did not reach a determination on whether the President committed a crime.”
When the CBS News reporter noted that Mueller had not corrected his remarks on whether Trump could be charged with a crime after leaving office, but something else, the president lashed out. “Again, you’re fake news and you’re right at the top of the list also. Read his correction!
Clearly Trump cannot handle it when somebody injects a little truth into his Fox News bubble.
The Trump folks keep trying to convince us that the Mueller testimony was bad for the Democrats and helped Trump.
Does that look like a man who is happy about what was revealed in those hearings yesterday?
