And seethe he did on Sunday morning, going after ex-FBI Director James Comey, who is now in the midst of a media blitz to promote his new, Trump-bashing book.
In an interview broadcast on Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America", Comey discussed his initial encounters a year ago with Trump, who took office on January 20, 2017. CNN's Jake Tapper is set to interview Comey on April 19.
Reuters and other news outlets have obtained copies of Comey's book before its formal release this week.
The interviews are Comey's first public comments since he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June, when he accused Trump of firing him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. We hear the same sneering in the catcalls from former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, a bleacher bum whose unprecedented attacks on Trump show how espionage was politicized under Barack Obama.
The president's tweet about Comey and Loretta E. Lynch appears to reference a part of the book in which Comey says the then-attorney general was conflicted on the Clinton investigation because of unspecified classified information that he said he was aware of - and that Lynch wanted him to call the probe a "matter". Clinton herself has pointed to Comey's actions in explaining her presidential election loss. "Again, very odd", Comey wrote.
One-fifth of Cameroon's Commonwealth Team has gone AWOL Cameroon still has athletes scheduled to compete in track and field, wrestling and boxing before Sunday's closing ceremony. Ugandan athletes were also warned against vanishing during Gold Coast 2018 in the lead-up to the event.
The publicity tour - and the book - will be the first time the American public has heard extensively from Comey since his explosive testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June of past year.
Trump unleashed a series of angry tweets at Comey, who has said he believes Trump was effectively demanding personal loyalty before he fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director last May.
He was sacked by Trump in May 2017.
Asked to describe that January 6, 2017 meeting two weeks before Trump took office, Comey said: "Really weird".
But in a controversial move, Comey told Congress just days before the election that the FBI was reviewing additional emails in relation to the investigation.

Details about the ABC interview have already started to come out.
Comey also dismissively describes Trump's orange skin and the white circles under his eyes from what he believes are tanning bed sessions, and compares Trump to a mafia boss.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Comey will "be forever known as a disgraced partisan hack" after the publication of his book, "A Higher Loyalty". In the clip, Comey characterizes the situation as surreal. "It's possible, but I don't know".
There is no indication that any such tape exists, and Trump has pushed back against the allegation.
