Trump fires off dozens of tweets while recuperating at White House

President Trump on Wednesday filled the morning with an outburst of tweets as he undergoes treatment for his COVID-19 infection from the White House.

The president had tweeted more than 50 times before noon, spending his time raging online against Democrats and the media and retweeting supporters even as his top aides insisted he was hard at work and pushing to get back into the Oval Office despite being two days removed from a hospital stay.

Most of Trump’s tweets focused on developments in the Russia investigation that conservatives have seized on to fuel their claims of bias. The president has been fixated on the origins of the investigation, which wrapped up last year when former special counsel Robert Mueller submitted his report.

The president made allegations that he was the victim of a coup, despite no such thing taking place, citing recently declassified notes from former CIA Director John Brennan.

“Now that the radical left Democrats got caught cold in the (non) friendly transfer of government, in fact, they spied on my campaign and went for a coup, we are entitled to ask the voters for four more years,” Trump tweeted in all caps. “Please remember this when you vote.”

It was unclear if Trump was referring to a second term, or an additional term beyond that as he often jokes he deserves.

In an earlier tweet, Trump asked why Democrats had not been arrested for their role in the Russia investigation.

“Can you imagine if the roles were reversed? Long term sentences would have started two years ago. Shameful!” Trump tweeted.

The president also retweeted a number of conservative figures who attacked former President Obama, Brennan and others over the Russia investigation, which found Trump did not knowingly collude with Russia during the 2016 campaign and declined to say whether he obstructed justice.

    Must not be too sick if he has the energy to tweet so much. It’s why I think his “illness” is a sham.

    And BTW, as to that third term — Trump is not joking. Actually, I think he wants to be president for life like his bestie dictator friends.
