This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!

Yeah, nevermind the McCarthy hearings, or even the ludicrous Benghazi hearings; everything that happens to Trump is somehow "the greatest" success or injustice. As much as I hate to reproduce this idiot's rantings, studying psychosis is the only way to cure it:
Trump clearly knew what he wanted to say as he took a few questions at a news briefing with visiting Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. Did he urge Comey at a February meeting to drop his probe of the Russia connections of Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn?
“No. No. Next question.”
Did he in fact collude with Russia in his campaign to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton?
“Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion,” he maintained. However another answer on that subject seemed both more specific and perhaps ambiguous.
“There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign — but I can only speak for myself — and the Russians. Zero.”
“The entire thing has been a witch hunt,” he declared, echoing one of the tweets he’d sent out just after dawn: “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”
Okay, we've seen this scenario play out numerous times in dictatorships around the world, just like it's taking place right now in Turkey. That phrase "My Enemies" is in every megalomaniac's lexicon, and it usually presages a harsh crackdown on any sort of criticism, however mild and thoughtful. It usually takes years for this "stage" of despotism to emerge, but Trump is a special case. Literally.
