'I'm having a good day!' Trump trolls Democrats with 'Game of Thrones' Game Over meme after AG Bill Barr completely exonerates him, as he shares gloating video of himself repeatedly declaring 'no collusion'

President Donald Trump says he's having a 'good day' now that the he's been cleared of collusion and obstruction.
Trump touched on the topic at the beginning of a Wounded Warrior event at the White House. 'And they're having a good day. I'm having a good day, too. It was called no collusion, no obstruction,' he said. 'There never, by the way, and there never will be. And we do have to get to the bottom of these things, I will say.' 
Trump said, 'I say this in front of my friends, this should never happen to another president again, this hoax. This should never happen to another president again.'
He had celebrated the end special counsel investigation earlier with a play on 'Game of Thones,' which is in its final season on HBO. 
The president shared a theatrical poster of himself, standing in fog, with an overlay that said: 'NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION. FOR THE HATERS AND THE RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS - GAME OVER.' 
It was the latest in a series of 'Game of Thrones' styled posters the White House created to promote Trump's agenda. It created full-length 'SANCTIONS ARE COMING' posters he brought to a Cabinet meeting in January.
Trump and his lawyers were aware of what the special counsel's redacted report would say, and they sought to get ahead of the attorney general on Thursday morning, branding it the entire probe a 'Political Hoax' conducted by 'Crooked Dirty Cops' before Attorney General William Barr held a news conference on the Russian election meddling.

He had not released the redacted report to Congress at the time of the press conference but spoke again about Robert Mueller's decision not to make a determination on obstruction of justice. Barr says Mueller left that decision up to him.
Before the press conference, the president sent out a flurry of tweets accusing his political enemies of crimes. He intimated that he was referring to former FBI director James Comey and Hillary Clinton, as well as the Democratic National Committee. 
'The Greatest Political Hoax of all time! Crimes were committed by Crooked, Dirty Cops and DNC/The Democrats,' he said in a tweet. 'PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!' he said in another.
He shared a video of himself declaring 'no collusion' at every turn of the investigation. 'No Collusion - No Obstruction!' he proclaimed again.
Several other tweets highlighted charges that a conservative judicial activist group  levied against the FBI and an informant who's claims served as the basis for allegations that Russia could be blackmailing Trump. 
The group, Judicial Watch, had also been tweeting about Clinton and the emails she routed through a private server when she was secretary of state. The FBI investigated her but declined to bring charges against her for gross negligence.
Trump also shared a video of himself declaring 'no collusion' at every turn of the investigation. 'No Collusion - No Obstruction!' he proclaimed again.

Trump sent the tweets before Barr said at a 9:30 am press conference that he determined that the president was 'frustrated' with the special counsel investigation but did not actively seek to impede it or obstruct justice.
On Wednesday Trump suggested he could hold a press conference to discuss the findings of the special counsel report. There was not one on the schedule, however, as of Thursday morning.
He said his could follow one he revealed Barr planned have. 'Maybe I'll do one after that, we'll see,' the president said on a WMAL radio program. 
The Justice Department seemingly gave the president a heads up that Barr would speak to media. Barr revealed at his press conference that he had provided the president's attorneys with full access to the report - something he was refusing to do for Congress - prior to his news conference.  

He suggested that the president's attorneys were offered the opportunity to redact additional sections but they made no such requests.

Barr's statement confirmed Wednesday reporting that Trump's personal attorneys, and therefore Trump, reviewed the report before it was prepped for release. They had days to put their own spin on it and prepare a public relations campaign in support of Trump.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the House Judiciary Chairman, said Wednesday night in a tweet that he was 'deeply troubled by reports that the WH is being briefed on the Mueller report AHEAD of its release,' especially after DOJ informed lawmakers that they would not be getting the report until after Barr's news conference.

Congressman Adam Schiff, a former prosecutor himself, recommended that Americans skip Barr's presser and spend their time reading the redacted Mueller report, instead.
'He took it upon himself to reach a conclusion on obstruction. He adopted the President’s “spying” smears. Now, he will spin a report no one has read. My advice: Wait to read Mueller’s words for yourself,' he tweeted.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer demanded that Mueller testify in public before Congress.
They said that Barr's 'partisan handling' of the report has resulted in a 'crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality.'
The Democratic congressional leaders issued their call hours before Mueller's highly-anticipated report became public and before Barr's 9:30 am press conference.
In their joint statement, Pelosi and Schumer blasted the attorney general for 'his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference' before it becomes public and for his 'irresponsible testimony before Congress last week.'
The chaos around the release of the redacted report was reminiscent of the furor on Capitol Hill after the FBI abruptly announced that it was not recommending charges against Clinton in her email and server case. Republicans argued that Clinton had been allowed to skate, and the conclusion had been rigged in her favor. 
When the FBI wrapped up its investigation into the former secretary of state, Comey held an impromptu media avail that even his bosses didn't know about.  He said investigators found her to be reckless but not guilty of crimes.
Trump went on to fire Comey for what he claimed at the time was sloppy work on the Clinton case. He claims now that Comey was a dirty cop who led dirty team and they were all out to get him.
He has claimed more than once that Comey and his cronies may have committed treason, once he learned that they investigated his business ties to Russia. He has accused ousted FBI officials of 'illegal spying' on his presidential campaign and plotting a 'coup' to forcibly remove him from office. 
He told press before a luncheon on Capitol Hill in March that he believes the alleged spying went all the way to the top — suggesting that former President Barack Obama was involved. 
In a WMAL interview on Wedesday, Trump would not accuse Obama of crimes, however, he said it was hard to fathom a situation in which the sitting president was not aware of what was taking place in his own Justice Department.
'We're talking about pervasive horrible things that were happening. And it would certainly be hard to believe what was going on, but we're going to leave that for another day,' the president said. 
Barr has agreed with Trump that 'spying' on the presidential campaign took place. He hasn't explained exactly what he meant by that, though.  
His press conference focused heavily on obstruction of justice allegations against Trump.
Mueller did not reach a conclusion on obstruction, but Barr, working in tandem with Rosenstein, decided against charges, based on underlying evidence they have not made public and won't turn over to Congress.
