Trump Says His Approval Rating Would Be ‘75%’ If Not For ‘Harassment’ From Mueller


After managing to not embarrass himself or the country too much while attending the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday, President Donald Trump was back to his old ways of tweeting out nonsense Thursday morning, and the object of his ire was Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump couldn’t resist bragging that a new poll from the notoriously unreliable Rasmussen polling firm has his approval rating at 50 percent. This is the very same Rasmussen that confidently predicted Republicans would be victorious on the midterm elections:

And then his attack on Mueller began:

Not a word of truth to that second tweet, especially when you consider that Rasmussen in the only poll showing Trump anywhere near the 50 percent mark. The latest RealClearPolitics average of eight polls (including Rasmussen) shows Trump at 43.3 percent approval with 52.5 percent saying they disapprove of the job the president is doing.

Rather than bolstering his case of how much Americans supposedly love him, Trump’s latest tweets only serve to reinforce the notion that he’s terrified of what comes next from the special counsel. On Friday, a new court filing from the Mueller team will detail exactly what laws former campaign chairman Paul Manafort broke when he violated his plea agreement. That document could also point to illegal actions by Trump and his 2016 campaign staff.

For now, the best thing about Trump’s delusional Thursday tweet is the response he got from social media:
