Relatedly: Trump's morning tweetshitz were typically measured and sagacious lol j/k.

series of tweets posted by Trump reading: 1. James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it! 2. The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost! 3. The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now! 4. Just heard Fake News CNN is doing polls again despite the fact that their election polls were a WAY OFF disaster. Much higher ratings at Fox 5. What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?

In case you're wondering why he's ranting and raving about polls again, it's probably because Gallup found that his approval has hit a new low of 37 percent and his disapproval has hit a new high of 58 percent. Lookin' good, Trump.
