President Donald Trump didn’t waste much time expressing his thoughts about Attorney General William Barr’s news conference Thursday morning.
Moments after Barr asserted the Mueller report concluded that Trump’s campaign didn’t collude with Russia and that no evidence of obstruction was established, the president posted on social media.
True to form, the image Trump tweeted was commensurate with trolling the opposition, with an assist from HBO’s series “Game of Thrones.”

Game on, indeed. Not unlike Pavlov’s dogs, Trump critics — including overzealous Hill editor Brian Krassenstein — were swiftly triggered and reacted in kind, with a side of profanity.
WE HAVE NOT READ THE DAMN REPORT!!!!

Democrats and other NeverTrumpers will follow suit — via social media or before the cameras — with their predictable litany of liberal platitudes. Never mind that, as Barr emphasized Thursday, the president didn’t invoke “executive privilege” over the Mueller report.
Such assessments evidently aren’t good enough for those in denial on the left, chiefly Rep. Adam Schiff who continues to perpetuate the desperate myth that there’s “incriminating evidence” against Trump. Forget the fact that listening to Schiff ramble on is akin to reviewing brake fluid.
Countless Democrats will strive to emasculate the commander in chief, despite little or no proof of any wrongdoing related to his 2016 campaign.
Another certainty is that shameless members of the mainstream media will blur the lines between reporting and coloring. That’s a given, even though Barr assured reporters that a version of Mueller’s report with few redactions will soon be made available to a bipartisan group.
Onward we go, with the left’s high-octane accusations peppered with whining. Cue the drama queens, stage left.
Breitbart reported that Hillary Clinton, despite her torpor these days, compared the current political climate to the “Twilight Zone” — something the former first lady would know about. Evidently, she feels the need to voice her opinion nationwide, even when it falls on deaf ears.
Within minutes of Trump tweeting the “Game of Thrones” image, his enemies took the bait.
Game over? It’s more like “Let the games begin.”
