As President Donald Trump counts down the minutes until the Mueller report is released, he’s been even more wedded to the news than usual, tweeting along with interviews and breaking stories alike.

“Because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM!” Trump said of Tiger Woods.

“So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!” he contributed during the Notre Dame fire.

According to the New York Times, Trump has taken to leaving the TVs on even when he has visitors over for lunch, the better to monitor breaking news developments.

    At least while binging and rage tweeting, there are some limits upon teh damage that he can wreak on the country and on the world.

  5. I’m sure the abomination would have won The Masters had he taken the time to enter. He’ll probably have a repilca of the trophy made with his name on it and proudly display it a Mar A Lago, along with a customized green jacket (modified tarp).
