You didn’t think he was done, did you?

President Donald Trump kept up his stream of angry Twitter ranting on Saturday morning against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report, tweeting that the report was written “as nastily as possible” by “Angry Democrats” and “highly conflicted” Mueller.

Trump took a short break to praise the economy…

…and then switched right back to ranting.

Attorney Bill Barr coined the “no collusion, no obstruction” line when he was describing the redacted Mueller report, which Trump has repeated over and over (including a bizarre Game of Thrones meme) since the report’s release. However, the actual report reveals that Barr had given an overly simplified (and Trump-friendly) spin on it.

While Mueller didn’t charge Trump with collusion or obstruction outright, he did outline 10 instances in which Trump potentially obstructed justice. Additionally, the Mueller report suggests that it was the many Trump lackeys who had to keep POTUS from messing with the investigation.

As for collusion, the report describes a series of shady moments between Russian operatives and the Trump campaign that seem to fall just short of criminal conspiracy.
