Twitter Explodes Over Report Trump Ordered Mueller Firing: ‘Cheeto Jesus Knows He’s Doomed’

A late night bombshell courtesy of reporters over at the New York Times with no respect for the 9-5 workday revealed that President Donald Trump ordered the firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller back in June 2017.

According to the Times, the president tried to fire Mueller last year but let up on the demand after White House counsel Don McGahn protested the move and threatened to quit.

McGahn reportedly “told senior White House officials that firing Mr. Mueller would have a catastrophic effect on Mr. Trump’s presidency and would incite more questions about whether the White House was trying to obstruct the Russia investigation.” Wow, smart guy.

That was apparently enough to quell Trump’s frustration with the investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, as the White House maintains to this day that they do not intend to fire Mueller.

Safe to say, the report that Trump ordered the firing of Mueller — coupled with the stunning detail that Mueller actually found out that the president tried to fire him! — was enough to send Twitter into a meltdown.
