President Donald Trump is known for making inflammatory insults toward his political foes; however, his latest attack against the Democratic Party hit a new low.

Trump referred to Robert Mueller’s team of investigators as “Angry Democrat Thugs” who are looking for “trouble.”

Trump made these remarks as he was complaining about White House lawyer Don McGahn being interviewed for 30 hours by Mueller’s team, according to the New York Post

“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel (sic), only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” Trump posted on Twitter Monday morning. “Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone looking for trouble.”

In a follow-up tweet Trump whined, “If you FIGHT BACK or say anything bad about the Rigged Witch Hunt, they scream Obstruction!”

He also accused the Democrats of collusion, calling the party a “national disgrace.”

“They are enjoying ruining people’s lives and REFUSE to look at the real corruption on the Democrat side — the lies, the firings, the deleted Emails and soooo much more! Mueller’s Angry Dems are looking to impact the election. They are a National Disgrace!” he wrote.

Apparently, Trump's unhinged rant was sparked by a report from The New York Times about McGahn being interviewed for 30 hours over the course of nine months, which Trump felt insinuated that McGahn was a “John Dean type RAT,” in reference to the former White House counsel who testified against President Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal.  

After the report was published, the president apparently felt compelled to set the record straight that he and his team of lawyers permitted McGahn to speak to the investigators about various issues including the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, Trump’s frustration with Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the probe, and his desire to fire Mueller.

Ironically, Trump's degrading tweets were posted on the very same day that his wife, Melania Trump, warned of how dangerous social media can be "when used incorrectly," during a speech at a cyberbullying prevention summit.

While her comments seem hypocritical on the surface, one could argue that she is actually the perfect person to speak about how harmful social media can be as she's married to the most notorious cyberbully there is and has a firsthand perspective on the negative impacts. Nevertheless, if she really wants to make a difference in the anti-bullying movement, she should start with her own husband.

As for the president's comments about the so-called "Democrat Thugs," well, his behavior indicates that the concept of civility in politics is out the window.
