Donald Trump is all “covfefe’d” up on Sunday morning and that can only mean one thing: tweets. Lots of them.
For someone who thinks he was “totally vindicated” by James Comey’s testimony, Trump sure seems fixated on it.
It’s almost as if he realizes what the vast majority of Americans realize: Comey described a president that i) is a habitual liar, ii) is unhinged, iii) is engaged in the obstruction of justice and iv) very well might have tried to effectively extort an FBI Director.
A couple of days after dancing around press questions about whether or not he was prepared to prove that he did indeed have “tapes” of his conversations with Comey (after the former FBI Director effectively called Trump’s bluff), Twitter Trump decided the best way to cheer the nation up on Sunday morning was to call Comey a coward and (question mark) a criminal:
That came after proving, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he doesn’t truly understand the plight of the working people he claims to represent.

Obviously it hasn’t occurred to Trump (just like it didn’t occur to Ben Bernanke) that when you inflate the assets most likely to be concentrated in the hands of the rich, all you’re doing is exacerbating the wealth divide.
But it got better (or “worse”, depending on how you want to look at it).
Trump went on to make the same ridiculous mistake as Fox news by trying to take credit for an unemployment rate that he had absolutely nothing to do with:
So there you go folks.
Don’t say you haven’t had your “covfefe” this morning.
