Trump responded to the first charges being approved in the Robert Mueller Russia investigation by breaking from reality and tweeted a Murdoch owned New York Post story blaming Hillary Clinton for colluding with Russia.
In response to the first charges being approved in the Russia investigation, Trump tweeted:
“How Team Hillary played the press for fools on Russia”

Trump’s response to the charges isn’t to ignore them and let the process play out. That is not how this unstable president works. Trump’s response was to go all in on a false allegation about a political opponent. For those who have been waiting for Donald Trump to completely lose it, the first taste of his breakdown came on Friday night.
It is unknown who was charged in the Russia investigation, but for Republicans who have claimed that Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 election was a nothing story, the charges are a devastating blow.
The fact of the matter is that their baseless investigations centered around Hillary Clinton and uranium don’t carry the same weight as a grand jury indictment.
The Russia chickens are coming home to roost, and the first response from the President Of The United States is a full retreat from reality.
