President Donald Trump has, once again, taken to Twitter to discuss what's going on in current politics.
After the Justice Department appointed former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Robert Mueller as special counsel tasked with the chore of overseeing the probe into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, Trump tweeted, once again, pointing the finger at his former contender, Hillary Clinton, and former President Barack Obama.
With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2017
But he didn't leave the social media platform until he was able to make himself look like the victim.
This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2017
Perhaps Trump had just watched Thursday's “Fox & Friends” segment, which hinted at the Clinton email scandal and Obama's Fast and Furious operation. The show's hosts said that during those investigations, there were no calls for impeachment or special counsels. As usual, the president clung to the idea, sharing it with his millions of followers without thinking through it first.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said a special counsel is necessary in order for the American people to trust the outcome of the investigation.
“The public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command,” he said.
It looks as if Trump isn't all that happy with how things have turned out.
