It's become routine for Donald Trump to lash out on social media, but it's only become worse in recent days. As the backlash to his firing of James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues, the president spent a good portion of his morning venting on Twitter.

Trump's Twitter take

Since the start of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump has made it clear that he's not a fan of the mainstream media. In the nearly two years that he's been an official politician, Trump has bypassed the press and used social media as his number one form of communication.

One of the reasons why the former host of "The Apprentice" has used Twitter as often as he does is due to the fact that the media is highly critical of the actions taken by the president. The biggest issue between both sides is over what role Russia played in the election, with Trump denying any wrongdoing and referring to reports that says otherwise as "fake news." Over the last few days, the headline story has been Trump's decision to fire James Comey, which has resulted in multiple-tweet rants by the commander in chief. After sending several early morning tweets on the issue on May 12, Trump returned to Twitter once again to continue his tirade.

Kicking off his Friday morning, Donald Trump decided to take to Twitter in an attempt to control the media narrative surrounding James Comey's termination and the growing scandal involving Russia.

During an interview on Thursday night, Trump spoke with NBC News' Lester Holt and doubled down on his claim that Comey personally told him that he was not being investigated in regards to Russia, despite validated reports saying otherwise.

"When James Clapper himself, and virtually everyone else with knowledge of the witch hunt, says there is no collusion, when does it end?" Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

In his most recent social media post, the president then shifted his attention to "real news." "China just agreed that the U.S. will be allowed to sell beef, and other major products, into China once again. This is REAL news!" the president noted. Trump's final tweet as of press time was his seventh of the morning, as it appears clear that the billionaire real estate mogul is not willing to back-down regardless of the evidence against him.

Twitter reacts

In response to Donald Trump's Friday morning tweet-storm, social media users didn't hold back their thoughts. "Did you just compare yourself to Nixon? Finally! Something we can agree on," writer Kelly Scaletta tweeted out. "He's completely unhinged," Michael Cohen added.

"1) No other "active" president ever had this problem, 2) Your surrogates lack accuracy because you lie to everyone, 3) Please, just shut up," actor George Takei tweeted.

"Things are getting interesting," Nick Pappas wrote, before adding, "But it would be more enjoyable if this was happening OUTSIDE the most important institution in our country." The backlash continued on social media as many critics of the president showed that they aren't willing to stop putting pressure on Donald Trump over his reported link to the Kremlin.
