Trump slams McConnel, Ryan, Clapper, the ‘Fake News’ in series of tweets

President Trump took aim at the “Fake News,” slammed congressional Republican leaders and called out former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in a rapid-fire Twitter-storm early Thursday.

The president had been relatively quiet on Twitter this week after returning to Washington from his 17-day “working vacation” at his property in Bedminster, N.J. But he returned to the platform Thursday, in part to respond to criticism in the media over his Phoenix rally speech.

In a cryptic dig at Clapper, he wrote: “James Clapper, who famously got caught lying to Congress, is now an authority on Donald Trump. Will he show you his beautiful letter to me?”

Clapper, now a CNN analyst, had gone on the network after Trump’s Tuesday night rally to question the president’s “fitness” for office. Trump’s Twitter reference to “lying” referred to Clapper’s 2013 apology for telling Congress the NSA doesn’t gather data on millions of Americans. It’s unclear what letter Trump was referring to.

    Clapper, has the designation ,of Lying in front of Congress, in front of God and everybody, who’d give this Clown the time of day. As for the other two, they’re both worthless as a hind teats on a Boar Hog. Need to get rid of the three, and lots more. Drain the Swamp!!

      Hey Nazi lover, have you ever seen Drumpf’s German Birth Certificate? I didn’t think so, bunky! And Obama won 2 elections without selling out to the Russians, hiding Crooked Tax Returns or filing a bunch of Bankruptcies. You can throw in a couple of vile, abusive divorces, too, skippy!!!

        Oh, Bob, Bob, Bob. So much name calling and ill informed drivel…your mother must be so proud of your intellectual prowess!

          KA – Like most Republicon Chump supporters, you babbled about, but didn’t respond to my comments. You sound like another typical LOSER and Uneducated sheep. Not surprising!!!

          1. K.A. says:

            I didn’t respond to your so called comments, because it’s impossible to hold an intelligent conversation with someone who doesn’t have any grasp of reality. And, I will no longer waste my time trying to do so, therefore, you may continue babbling to yourself.

    Once a liar, always a liar! Clapper needs to fade away and cease giving interviews, particularly on that trash channel CNN! He should remember that he can still be prosecuted and sent to prison were he will more than likely die.
