Is this how a President of a major country posts online???
he's lying too. The investigation was reportedly opened up after he fired Comey.
It had to be authorized by the DOJ. But , yeah, that's where we are as a nation right now.
Our president is directly undermining the free press as well as his own justice department.
But, to answer your question.......Trump is an autocratic leader in a weakening democracy, Harvard political scientists warn

Sounds like a rant from a beer addled street urchin.

Is that for real, or just a parody?
both he and Sarah Sanders went for the "deep state" conspiracy angle.
Yeah. That's what they did in response to questions about whether Trump was trying to undermine
an official FBI investigation.

so now, Trump works for Rosenstein?
No, it created a system where they created mutual protection. Rod can't be fired or it is called obstruction, can't fire Mueller because it looks like a conflict of interest.

Its noteworthy that Trump is starting to point this out directly.

No... I've pointed this out to you some time ago.

It is noteworthy that Trump is now mentioning it directly in that the tendency is that, while people have uncovered the details as best as is publicly available, when Trump mentions things directly is usually shortly before actions are taken on the issue.
