It’s been a rough several days since Donald Trump decided to fire FBI Director James Comey. Since then, several more incriminating reports have come out – one of the top ones being the appointment of a special counsel in the investigation of the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russian. As expected, Trump is not handling that news very well and has decided to make his feelings public.
Earlier today, Trump held a join press conference with the President of Colombia, and basically had a meltdown in front of yet another world leader, further humiliating our country.
When Trump was asked about the special counsel, Trump had no reservations about expressing his disapproval. The undeserving POTUS said the move of appointing a special counsel “divides the country” and that “the entire thing is a witch hunt.”
Trump then went off on one of his ridiculous, self-congratulatory rants where he bragged about job numbers and how he was reducing illegal immigration. Finally, he came back to Russia and said there was no collusion. Trump said:
“Believe me, there’s no collusion. Russia is fine, but whether it is Russia or anybody else, my total priority, believe me, is the United States of America.”

The interesting thing in Trump’s speech was that he said he could only “speak for himself” which is definitely an odd, shady thing to say. Trump might say there has been no collusion, but all evidence is pointing to Trump being guilty as hell. Recently, Comey exposed Trump for previously begging him to stop the investigation into Michael Flynn – so something tells us that Trump is getting more and more nervous, and he’s desperate to save himself.
