President Donald Trump has lashed out on Twitter after the Justice department appointed a special counsel to lead the probe into potential interference from Russia in the 2016 U.S. election.
Trump pondered where the special counsel was for – what he called – “all the illegal acts” of Hilary Clinton and the Obama Administration. He described his treatment as “the single greatest witch hunt in the American political history”
This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!

Mr Trump might be forgetting the assassination of JFK, and the many other presidents through time that have been targeted by criminals, and subsequently killed.
This got us thinking about all the other controversial tweets the president has actively posted on his profile. Here are a few of our favourites:
We all remember a time when President Trump was more interested in popular culture than political affairs. More specifically, he was worried about how teen heart throb Robert Pattinson was being treated by his then girlfriend Kirsten Stewart. Your guess is as good as ours, but we’re going to assume he’s team Edward.
Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!

We guess this isn’t the first time he’s experienced abuse via the internet, although believe it or not, there was a time in 2013 where he responded with less grace. Yes, we had to click through and check that this was real as well.
Amazing how the haters & losers keep tweeting the name “F**kface Von Clownstick” like they are so original & like no one else is doing it…

Remember when Trump first said he was going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it? We certainly can, but the president elect figured he’d make everything OK by eating out of a taco bowl and captioning it ‘I love hispanics’. We wish we were joking…

We’re all for combatting fake news, but to suggest any poll that reflects on him negatively is fake news seems a bold move to say the least.
Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.

Don’t even get us started on his profile picture…
