CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted out a statement from former President Donald Trump’s office on Monday, claiming he’s a victim of “political persecution.” Trump responded to the Supreme Court earlier in the day, rebuffing a bid by the former president to shield his tax returns and other financial records from a New York grand jury subpoena. The justices issued the order, ending the long-running dispute between Trump and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. (D) without comment or noted dissents. Trump, of course, wasn’t happy about the decision.
Trump called the investigation “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our country,” adding that the Mueller investigation was a “hoax” — “which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated.” I have no idea what that means.
“Russia, Russia, Russia,” Trump wrote as if he’s unleashing a tweet. The former president gave a shout-out to “Crazy Nancy” and said there was “No collusion” and claimed that he was found “NOT GUILTY.”
“It just never ends,” he continued.
“The new phenomenon of ‘headhunting’ prosecutors and AGs—who try to take down their political opponents using the law as a weapon—is a threat to the very foundation of our liberty. That’s what is done in third world countries,” he continued. “Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent. That’s fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won’t stand for it.”
Trump then went on to say that “murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers,” and I’m not sure what that has to do with his taxes. Trump vowed to “fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me.”
“We will win!” he added.

That statement is straight-up out of the narcissists’ playbook. He’s always the victim and screams out cries of persecution. And notice that he’s continuing with his Big Lie that led to the deadly insurrection on Jan. 6.
