Twitter Melts Down Over Trump’s Insane 51 Minute Media Blitz: He’s ‘Still Talking…’

President Donald Trump wandered onto the White House lawn this morning for an announced “unannounced visit” to his favorite morning show Fox & Friends, which caused some of the most insane Trumpian comments in recent memory and triggered a collective sigh from Twitter.

“Wow, the highest rated (by far) morning show, @foxandfriends, is on the Front Lawn of the White House,” Trump tweeted early this AM. “Maybe I’ll have to take an unannounced trip down to see them?”

While filming at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy spoke with the president on topics like his budding bromance with Kim Jong Un, who Trump praised and voiced a desire to have “my people” treat him like the North Koreans treat their murderous dictator. The president continued his tirade by calling leaders in the FBI “scum,” suggesting that James Comey should be put behind bars, and slamming the recent controversial IG report as a “horror show.”

Predictably, every semi-reasonable pundit, journalist, and Twitter personality watching the shitshow transpire responded with outrage — particularly over Trump’s desire to be like Kim — as well as fact checks and admission that we really do live in the “dumbest possible timeline.” See a few of the best reactions below:
