Trump Mocked For 1 AM Twitter Outburst Against Mueller: ‘As if He Awoke From a Fever Dream’


President Donald Trump was wide awake and angry at 1 A.M. ET today, as he fired off an all-caps tweet targeting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian election tampering.

“NO COLLUSION,” tweeted the president at 1:12 a.m. “RIGGED WITCH HUNT!”

While the tweet was a typical Trump line against Mueller — one that he has repeated almost nonstop since the launch of the investgation — his timing was especially odd, as it was sent so late at night when the president typically launches his outrageous tweetstorms early in the morning. However, Trump’s late-night concerns could be linked to the recent big developments in the cases of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen this week — at least, that’s what a number of pundits, writers, and journalists gathered.

Numerous notable media figures responded to Trump’s 1 a.m. outburst by mocking his desperation, theorizing if he “awoke from a fever dream,” and asking if this is “his most terrified tweet” yet.
