If you've followed Donald Trump even remotely in the past few years, you know about his propensity to lash out at those he doesn't agree with. You are also aware that there are some who question his mental health, most recently George Conway, the husband of Kellyanne Conway.

 

But on Friday morning, Trump seemed to be reeling out of control. He's made his feelings well-known how he feels about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia and obstruction of justice investigations, referring to them as a "witch hunt" more than 100 times, while publicly attacking the investigations more than 1100 times, according to The New York Times. 

With Republicans going against him for the second time on Thursday, it appeared it made the president spin out of control, knowing that he has lost some of his support in Congress.

 

On Thursday the Senate voted to move forward with a resolution of disapproval for his national emergency declaration at the border in a money grab to build his elusive border wall, defying the wishes of Congress who wanted to limit the money spent on that. The House had already passed the resolution, but to move forward it needed the approval of Congress. 12 senators joined the Democrats in moving it forward, including some who were previously in Trump's corner. 

Also Thursday, and perhaps more importantly, the House voted unanimously to move forward a measure that would force the Justice Department to publicly release Mueller's report on his investigations. There was not a single Republican who voted no, although four voted "present."

 

Luckily for Trump, he still has House Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in his back pocket. While Senate Minority Leader tried to demand the measure be brought to a vote on Thursday, Graham blocked it and wouldn't even allow his fellow senators to vote on it, perhaps feeling it wouldn't go well after the previous vote that day. 

Trump started out his Friday morning on Twitter giving sympathy to the people of New Zealand after the attacks on two mosques that left 49 people dead. The then posted about the "Jexodus" movement that "encourages Jewish people to leave the Democrat Party," noting that "Republicans are waiting with open arms."

 

Next, he switched to the release of former FBI agent Peter Strzok's testimony before Congress last summer. He was fired just a few weeks after testifying. 

" 'New evidence that the Obama era team of the FBI, DOJ and CIA were working together to spy on (and take out) President Trump, all the way back in 2015,' " he tweeted.

 

It appears to be a quote from "Fox and Friends." He followed that by stating that "a transcript of Peter Strzok's testimony is devastating. Hopefully the Mueller report will be covering this." 

But the further he went with his message, he ended up flipping on himself.

 

A few hours later, seemingly still stewing about it, he tweeted, "So if there was knowing and acknowledged to be 'zero' crime when the Special Counsel was appointed, and if the appointment was made based on the Fake Dossier (paid for by Crooked Hillary) and now disgraced Andrew McCabe (he and all stated no crime), then the Special Counsel should never have been appointed, and there should be no Mueller report." 

He further explained his reasoning by saying, "This was an illegal and conflicted investigation in search of a crime. Russian collusion was nothing more than an excuse by the Democrats for losing an election that they thought they were going to win."

 

"THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO A PRESIDENT AGAIN!" Trump insisted. 

He then came back to Twitter a few more hours later to thank the Republican senators who "bravely voted for strong border security and the wall," ignoring the fact that 12 GOP senators went up against him in disagreement of his national emergency.

 

Trump is being pushed into a corner with the predicted upcoming end of Mueller's investigation, not knowing if it implicates him or not, as well as multiple House investigations and the public scorn of 12 Republican senators voting against him. 

It seems more and more that each time he is pushed, he sinks himself further and further and spins further out of control. The question is whether he will be stopped by Congress or if he will eventually take himself out with one fatal move.
