After Mueller’s testimony today, Trump was ebullient.

He took a victory lap in an almost 20 minute press interaction, and on Twitter.

He was in his element. AP reported:

The president fired off an onslaught of tweets before the back-to-back hearings even began at 8:30 a.m. All told, he tweeted and retweeted more than two dozen times on Mueller’s testimony about his investigation into the president and the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

As it ended, Trump tweeted, “TRUTH IS A FORCE OF NATURE!”

Then he strode out of the White House and took a victory lap in front the reporters and cameras assembled on the South Lawn.

“It’s over,” Trump declared. He blasted “the phony cloud” created by the investigation and said, “there was no defense to this ridiculous hoax, this witch hunt.” …

“The performance was obviously not very good. He had a lot of problems,” Trump said, pointing to Mueller’s lack of familiarity with some aspects of the investigation and accusing him of playing favorites. “This was a devastating day for Democrats.”
