Donald Trump began Friday morning by complaining about the fact that he can’t get bills passed because of Democrats in the Senate: “If Senate Republicans don’t get rid of the Filibuster Rule and go to a 51% majority, few bills will be passed. 8 Dems control the Senate!”
Ten minutes later, Trump tweeted about his many accomplishments in office, including the most bills: “Few, if any, Administrations have done more in just 7 months than the Trump A. Bills passed, regulations killed, border, military, ISIS, SC!”
Most pundits, however, agree with his first tweet, that he has gotten very few bills passed.
And Trump’s Friday Twitter nuttiness didn’t end there.
He once again attacked Republican Senator Bob Corker: “Strange statement by Bob Corker considering that he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in ’18. Tennessee not happy!”
Corker said yesterday that “The President has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful…He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today, and he’s got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that.”
Trump is now in public spats with Corker, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, and Jeff Flake.
Trump also tweeted praise for a book that praised him: “Nick Adams, ‘Retaking America’ ‘Best things of this presidency aren’t reported about. Convinced this will be perhaps best presidency ever.'”

And for his last incoherence, Trump praises John Kelly, who was brought in as Chief of Staff to reign him in: “General John Kelly is doing a fantastic job as Chief of Staff. There is tremendous spirit and talent in the W.H. Don’t believe the Fake News”
Great job General Kelly!
