On Monday morning, after his ridiculous tweetstorm about DACA, Democrats and Mexico, Donald Trump once again decided to attack his Department of Justice and FBI. Whining about something he probably saw on Fox & Friends, the president of the United States tweeted:
So sad that the Department of “Justice” and the FBI are slow walking, or even not giving, the unredacted documents requested by Congress. An embarrassment to our country!

Oh, there is so much to unwrap here but let’s just stick to the fact that Donald Trump has absolutely no idea that he is president. You see, ordinarily, a president would not go after the Department of Justice because they’d recognize that any problems with that agency are their fault.
The DOJ is part of the executive branch and the president nominates its head. Donald Trump chose Jeff Sessions to run the DOJ and he chose Chris Wray to head the FBI. Ultimately, it is the president’s responsibility to make sure the agencies are running well and cooperating with their oversight committees. I mean, this is a very basic fact. Even a child would know this, but somehow it has managed to escape the squatter who currently resides in the Oval Office.
After a morning of dumb, Twitter could not handle the last tweet and began mocking Trump for his stupidity:
There you ago attacking government agencies in your government again. You are the embarrassment to our country. You are being investigated for obstruction of justice, money laundering and conspiring with Russia to undermine our democracy. Sad!

Trump is an embarrassment to our country. Undermining your own DoJ is bizarre. But we know why he does it… pic.twitter.com/pooH9KzBAh

Maybe they have been real busy with background checks, attempting to provide security clearances for your criminal actors! It’s a difficult adjudication for the FBI to determine that money laundering and corruption are legitimate exceptions for a security clearance!

If he’s already this crazy this morning, lunchtime is going to be loads of fun.
