President Donald Trump played the victim in a rambling 3:00 a.m. tweet about a mail bomb that went to CNN:
Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, “it’s just not Presidential!”

CNN host Alisyn Camerota was critical of Trump’s tweet:
He thinks being president is the same as being a cable news pundit. The two are on the same plane for him.
So if a cable news pundit says something critical about me, why can’t I use the megaphone of the presidency to say something critical about the media? That is just an interesting look at his psyche.
Joe Lockhart, the former White House press secretary for Bill Clinton, added his analysis:
Frankly, I’m tired of having to worry about the president’s psyche. He was elected to be president of the United States, not a mental patient. And being up at 3:30 in the morning… this guy’s tweeting at people who are just reporting the news.
