In terms of lowlights, in early July (shortly after the notorious Morning Joe tweets) I compiled my own top ten list of worst Trump tweets. I was really torn on #1 between his “fake media is the enemy of the people” tweet and his “Comey better hope there are no tapes” tweet. I granted the dubious “honor” to the Comey tweet because it contributed to a Special Prosecutor being appointed. I concluded that a tweet triggering the appointment of a Special Prosecutor to investigate felony charges against you deserves a #1 ranking.

But Trump’s batfecalmaterial crazy Twitter meltdown over the last few days as a combined mass of mega-multi-tweets reached truly epic proportions conclusively demonstrating he is completely unhinged, if he ever was hinged. We were treated to:

— Retweeting a graphic of a train running over a CNN reporter, then deleting it.

— Retweeting someone calling him (Trump) a fascist. He deleted it presumably after aides explained to him that being fascist is a bad thing.

— Attacking the CEOs quitting his Manufacturing Council for “grandstanding,” petulantly declaring in 5th grader fashion he had lots more to replace them.

— In the midst of a controversy where he was accused of pandering to racists he retweeted a Fox Article saying he was seriously considering pardoning Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio needs the pardon because he was convicted of criminal contempt of court for failing to stop racist traffic stops.

— Personally and by name attacking the one black CEO who quit his Manufacturing Council. Of all the CEOs who quit the only one he called out by name, and pseudo threatened, was the black guy.
