Watching President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed can be a suspenseful pastime for those of us who value decorum in the White House. The president can be confrontational and undignified, but that doesn’t mean he’s always wrong.

Fox News printed a recent tweet storm (an apt description) that is right on the money. There were two topics that caught my eye. The first was a demand for Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to testify before Congress on live TV and not behind closed doors.

For those of you who haven’t been keeping up, Strzok and Page are the two former FBI agents who brought a new meaning to the term ‘Internal Affairs’ when they became Team Adultery on the taxpayer’s dime.

Strzok testified live and in public before the House. What struck me about the proceedings was the boorish behavior of committee Democrats. It was obvious they had no interest in the truth if the truth damaged their ‘Trump is a pawn of Putin’ fantasy. Their behavior was closer to that of drunken football fans in the end zone, than that of responsible elected representatives.

Their goal was simply to disrupt and distract any time negative information would start to surface regarding bias in the FBI and Robert ‘Ahab’ Mueller investigation. The leftists on the panel were successful.

They turned the hearing into a chaotic clown show hoping that viewers would be disgusted and ignore testimony. They were aided and abetted by the Opposition Media, which also doesn’t want the hearing to bring evidence of bias to light. Instead of chiding the left for its behavior, the media reports on disruptions without assigning blame. Thereby letting the left off the hook for their outrageous disruptions.

The targeting of the Trump campaign by the Obama administration is a bigger scandal than Watergate and the left knows it. Yet compare the behavior of the members of the committee investigating Watergate with that of today’s left. Republicans asked tough questions that could damage an incumbent Republican president and they didn’t act like louts when Democrats were offering questions.

This behavior can’t be blamed on Trump.

Instead it’s a conscious decision by the left to tarnish any attempt to get at the truth. Which brings us to the president’s other useful tweet. Borrowing President Trump’s apt description, the left only wants to hear information that aids “Bob Mueller, the leader of the 13 Angry Democrats on a Witch Hunt.”
