Donald Trump spun out in a Twitter meltdown on Wednesday morning and is now claiming that he didn’t fire former FBI director James Comey over the Russia investigation. He did. He very clearly told NBC News’ Lester Holt he fired him over Russia.

Trump tweeted:  “Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation, where by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!”

Well, Trump told NBC News: “In fact, when I decided to just do it I said to myself, ‘you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story. It’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.'”

He attacked Stormy Daniels in a 6AM attack after she released a composite sketch of the man she claims threatened her to leave Donald Trump alone. Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti responded that an “nothing is better than a completely unhinged, undisciplined opponent” was the best one to meet in court.
