President Donald Trump spent the weekend spitting vitriol via Twitter at several Democrat-led areas of the country, including the city he used to call home.

“Crazy Nancy Pelosi should spend more time in her decaying city and less time on the Impeachment Hoax!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.

It was the latest post in a string of furious tweets bashing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) state and district of San Francisco, along with the state of New York and New York City–all of which are either investigating Trump’s businesses or are led by Democratic lawmakers heading the impeachment proceedings against Trump.

The President began the crusade on Saturday morning by accusing California and New York’s Democratic governors of not addressing their states’ “TREMENDOUS Homeless problems,” an attack he retweeted on Sunday.

On late Saturday afternoon, Trump went as far as saying he hated New York state and NYC, where prosecutors from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and the Southern District of New York are investigating Trump Organization.

“So sad to see that New York City and State are falling apart,” Trump tweeted. “All they want to do is investigate to make me hate them even more than I should.”

It wasn’t until after Trump blasted Pelosi’s “decaying city” on Sunday that the President finally acknowledged the attack at a Hanukkah celebration on Saturday night in Monsey, New York, in which five people were stabbed.

“The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific,” Trump tweeted. “We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.”

    So he’s sundowning at 3:40 in the afternoon now and saying the quiet parts out loud? This man need serious help. It’s not healthy for him, and definitely not for the country and for a large swath of Americans who he actively hates.

  3. Nothing says “I shouldn’t be impeached because I never act like a gangster” more than threatening retaliation against the home states of the House majority and Senate minority leaders. Smooth move there, stable genius.

  4. to make me hate them even more than I should

    What is the appropriate level of hate a president should have for a US city and state?

  5. Trump is playing to his cult. They love to hate on successful Democratic cities and states. Too bad for him it will be lost in the sewer of tweets he has birthed over the last week or so. Watching him reminds of Voldemort at the end of the Deathly Hallows movie, with pieces of him flying off until there is nothing left.
