Donald Trump kicked off his Saturday morning as he so often does: by throwing a tantrum comparable to those seen around grade school playgrounds.
This time, as Democrats go full-speed ahead on impeachment, the president’s freak-outs are becoming increasingly laughable and somewhat pathetic.
In his latest, Trump – the man just caught trying to hijack the 2020 election and then cover-up evidence of that effort – revealed his new nickname for Democrats in the House and whined that they aren’t treating him like they treated President Barack Obama.
“Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me,” Trump tweeted.

Trump is asking the wrong question
On any level, comparing the current disgrace in the White House with Barack Obama – a man of character who led a scandal-free administration for two full terms – is the very definition of insanity.
But the real question Trump should be asking in his tweets is this: Can you imagine how the Republican Party would react if Barack Obama committed even a fraction of the impeachable and treasonous offenses that this current president has?
If Donald Trump wanted to be treated like a real, respectable American president – like Barack Obama, the man he will never measure up to – then he shouldn’t have been selling out this country from day one.
But it’s too late for this president now. The dam of his corruption is breaking and his treasonous behavior is coming back to haunt him and those around him in a very real way.
Donald Trump doesn’t deserve the admiration that he so frequently and desperate demands. What he deserves is to be hit with a maximum dose of the rule of law.
