The President of the United States met with Sauli Niinistö, the President of Finland today. There was a small presser in the Oval Office, followed by a full press conference where both presidents made opening statements and took questions.
The day started with the President posting a series of unhinged tweets. Here is an example.
The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you’ll need it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2019
During the Oval office meeting with President Niinistö, Trump was on edge being very flipant and rude to reporters more than usual. Below is one of a series of tweets covering the event, which you can follow if you click the tweet.
Trump called Adam Schiff a "lowlife," bashing him for his rendition of Trump's phone call. "He should resign from office in disgrace, and frankly they should look at him for treason," Trump said, though treason has an actual definition that is not this.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 2, 2019
Finally at the official press conference Trump totally lost control, started yelling and getting hostile with reporters, and spouting lie after lie about pretty much everything he could think of.
All of this spawned the Twitter Hashtag #TrumpMeltDown. Without further ado… the tweets!
Dear Finland,— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) October 2, 2019
We are so so sorry. And embarrassed. Thank you President Niinista for your patience and charm in the face of our barbarian president. Is there something we can offer you? A Dakota? Kentucky? Some symbol of our gratitude?
Once again Rick Wilson kicks off the #TrumpMeltdown crazy with some thoughtful analysis.
1/ Just a brief note to elected Republicans.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 2, 2019
The #TrumpMeltdown is your new normal.
This is why almost none of you will have a town hall meeting of any kind.
This is why 42 house members and hundreds of other elected Republicans got blown out.
2/ This is why you live in fear every minute of your waking hours.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 2, 2019
You know because you strapped yourself to this suicide bomber that when the vest goes off you die with him.
You know your legacies as the Class of Trump will be that of small, cowardly pilot fish.
3/ A handful of you, the opportunists and the edge case Trumphadi spend tonight on Fox bellowing about the Deep State and how his behavior today is all part of a secret multidimensional chess game.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 2, 2019
Most of you are so far in the tall grass you're practically landscape.
4/ You think that you are political geniuses for abandoning everything you ever claimed to believe in (except judicial fetishism) and smeared yourselves in Trump's excrement while calling it honey.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 2, 2019
Love to see how the #GOP responds to and defends this epic #TrumpMeltdown . In all my 70+ years on this earth, I have never witnessed such an outrageous display of insane, deranged, and unmitigated insanity in our public media. And I am embarrassed for our once great nation.— Buford T Justice (@TexasJoeDuck) October 2, 2019
This is what you get when you elect an unqualified, inexperienced, low IQ, white supremacist, game show host whose fav past times are screwing porn stars, getting peed on by Russian prostitutes, bragging on himself, and grabbing women by the p*ssy as POTUS.#TrumpMeltdown— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) October 2, 2019
And The Shade Award goes to whoever that Finnish reporter is who asked the Finnish President…— YS (@NYinLA2121) October 2, 2019
“What favors has Trump asked of you?”
That certainly dialed things up to 11!
OMG I’m dying!
We just witnessed the US president having a psychotic episode on live TV:— Bill Madden (@maddenifico) October 2, 2019
The mental decline of Trump has been nothing short of stunning.
At this point, it's absolutely gross negligence for White House staff, as well as Trump's family not to do an intervention.#TrumpMeltdown
Grandpa needs a cookie and a nap. #TrumpMeltdown— Julie Petertil (@jpetertil) October 2, 2019
It's a national security issue to allow this man to stay in office one more day. No business allows a disgruntled employee who is a threat to that business to stay and have access to files. He is vulnerable to our nation's enemies. #TrumpMeltdown #ImpeachTheMF— Rapunsal Grant 🍑👠🇺🇲 (@rapgrant9700) October 2, 2019
I dare someone to call DC police and ask them to do a welfare check at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. #TrumpMeltdown— Julie (Bitch is still my superhero name.) (@StrangeAttract5) October 2, 2019
Everyday since the impeachment inquiry started he’s been increasingly unhinged. Not like normal unhinged, but titanically unhinged. And it’s just getting started. If he doesn’t stroke out by Friday I’ll be shocked.
I’ve heard of ruling with an iron first, ruling by fear, ruling by coercion, but never have I witnessed ruling by total insanity. Until now.
I’m honestly scared that at any minute he could freak out and start launching nukes.
