Today the baby president proved just how much he was sweating the looming probe by going on one of his trademark Twitter meltdowns and again screaming about “Presidential harassment” in a series of hysterical tweets.
He began by complaining about his immediate concern, which appears to be Congressman Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who announced on Wednesday that his own investigation would be looking into Trump’s finances as well as his Russia ties.
I can understand why the idea of meaningful oversight terrifies the President. Several of his close associates are going to jail, others await trial, and criminal investigations continue.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) February 6, 2019
We’re going to do our job and won’t be distracted or intimidated by threats or attacks.
Trump did not take that well.
So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so. Never happened before! Unlimited Presidential Harassment....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 7, 2019
Trump doubled down with his favorite invented catch-phrase.
PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT! It should never be allowed to happen again!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 7, 2019
And the dunks rained down like manna from heaven.

Dear @realDonaldTrump: It's called Congressional oversight. That's what the American people voted for last November.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) February 7, 2019
And if you and your associates did nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about.#ThursdayThoughts https://t.co/MCMDFT99Hu
Hey, Trump's finally come up with a nickname for himself! https://t.co/QVZy03a0S8— Gladstone (@WGladstone) February 7, 2019
As many pointed out, as a leading “birther,” Trump made his name in politics with actual presidential harassment.
Like when you harass a president for his birth certificate?! That kind of harassment?— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) February 7, 2019
Says the guy that pushed the racist birther conspiracy that Obama was a secret Muslim born in Kenya. https://t.co/b9LQSO8Rh1— Richard W. (@IceManNYR) February 7, 2019

The man who launched his political career pushing the birther conspiracy is upset about being investigated. Pretty hypocritical tweet from @realDonaldTrump right there.— Dan (@ray_gull) February 7, 2019
Like you did with Obama? https://t.co/gLG5T6sMzm— Sojourner Obama King (@realfacade1) February 7, 2019
Hey ding dong, you were the original birther. Get a clue.— John Iadarola (@johniadarola) February 7, 2019
You're trying to become the picture they put in the dictionary next to the definition of "hypocrite" aren't you? pic.twitter.com/yPKwsn4IHE— JRehling (@JRehling) February 7, 2019

For there to be harassment, you'd have to be a law-abiding @POTUS.— Deborah do Carmo (@LawyerLinguist) February 7, 2019
You relentlessly went after @BarackObama (@POTUS44) with your birther crap. THAT was harassment Donald.
What is coming your way is JUSTICE.

Can't IMAGINE what they're worried about, can you? pic.twitter.com/YIpc1tvfzR— Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) February 7, 2019
You're Delusional. Breaking the law in such a high office makes everyone aware of the crimes YOU commit. They aren't after you because you're President, they are after you because you're a criminal. https://t.co/EucCaJXrrq— ~Rebecca Wasson~ (@Blw329) February 7, 2019
