On today’s show we discuss the Mueller Report.
With the help of Politico we do a deep dive into the two main issues the special council was tasked with exploring: obstruction and conspiracy/coordination with Russia or, as the president calls it, “collusion”.
You can find the full redacted Mueller Report here.
Surprisingly, as Vox.com notes, only 7.25% of the report is redacted.
I’m joined by Denise from California for news, analysis and opinion.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump, today, unloaded on twitter.
His attacked was aimed squarely at the media’s continued conversation over impeachment and the 2020 candidates.
As the Hill reports, he tweeted:
“In the ‘old days’ if you were President and you had a good economy, you were basically immune from criticism,” Trump wrote. “Remember, ‘It’s the economy stupid.’ Today I have, as President, perhaps the greatest economy in history…and to the Mainstream Media, it means NOTHING. But it will!”
The president, who apparently has a lot of free time on his hands, then attacked the NY Times and opinion columnist Paul Krugman, then took a swipe at MSNBC’s Morning Joe, tweeting:
“Morning Psycho (Joe),” had helped him get elected in 2016 “by having me on (free) all the time” but that now its ratings “nosedived” because of critical coverage.
“Angry Dumb and Sick,” he tweeted. “A really bad show with low ratings — and will only get worse.”
He then went after CNN’s Chris Cuomo and complemented Fox & Friends.
Also, bizarrely, he attacked his own vehicle, Twitter, stating because he was a Republican they were preventing his massive 59.9 million audience from growing:
“They don’t treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names—over 100 M. But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games,”
