Default Trump throws a tantrum and lashes out at.... Everyone it seems?

Quote:
US President Donald Trump has launched a furious attack on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and on his critics at a conservative summit.

In the longest speech of his presidency, Mr Trump railed against the inquiry into alleged collusion between his campaign and Russia.

"We're waiting for a report by people who weren't elected," he told a crowd of cheering conservatives.

Mr Mueller is expected to hand in his report to the attorney general shortly.

"Unfortunately, you put the wrong people in a couple of positions and they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there and all of a sudden they are trying to take you out with bull****, okay?" the president said.

Mr Trump has frequently called the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt".

The speech - clocking in at more than two hours - also included sharp attacks on former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former FBI head James Comey, the Democratic Party and those critical of his approach to North Korea.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, Mr Trump lashed out at his detractors in a wide-ranging speech.

"This is how I got elected, by being off script . . . and if we don't go off script, our country is in big trouble, folks," he began.

The president repeatedly said that Mr Mueller had "never received a vote", nor had Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr Mueller to his position.

Mr Rosenstein plans to step down by March after frequent presidential attacks.

The president alleged Mr Mueller was "best friends" with former FBI head James Comey, and mocked the accent of former attorney general Mr Sessions, whom he fired in November.

He said Mr Sessions was "weak and ineffective and he doesn't do what he should have done".

The president's attacks ranged widely.

He called the Green New Deal proposal - pitched by some Democrats as a radical bid to combat climate change - "the craziest plan", saying "when the wind stops blowing, that's the end of your electric".

After a series of remarks on immigrants who, he said, must "love our country", Mr Trump said, "We have people in Congress that hate our country."

"And you know that, and we can name every one of them if you want," he said.

He also defended his summit with North Korea leader Mr Kim, telling the crowd they had made "a lot of progress" and saying the country had "an incredible, brilliant future".

Mr Trump also pledged to protect free speech on US university campuses with an executive order.

Conservatives have said some US universities stifle right-wing opinions.

The speech came at the end of a difficult week for the president.

Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen called him a "racist", "conman" and a "cheat" in a congressional hearing.

He's unravelling and it's a delight to watch. He's utterly desperate and flailing so I can only assume the Mueller's got something substantial on him and so Trump's trying to discredit him any way he can.

The Green New Deal is bonkers, but Trump is pretty bonkers too. You can dislike both.

I think the fact the New Green Deal was almost universally mocked shows how stupid it is. As far as I know it's not even been officially put on the table, it was just outlined on AOC's website. If it does ever reach the proposal stages, some grownups would have helped her improve it.
Sure, Trump's presidency seems to have been beneficial for America's economy, but that doesn't mean the man himself doesn't act like a baby sometimes.

I know, I laughed at that part. He has no idea how wind power works and it's embarassing.
