Washington - He took a fist-pumping victory lap over the end of the Mueller probe. Basked in gushy accolades from a foreign leader. Saw a former nemesis humiliated by the feds.

To most of America, it was just another Monday. For President Donald Trump, it was, perhaps, his best day ever.

Trump started his day firing off exuberant tweets over the end of the special counsel investigation , segued to a back-slapping meeting with the Israeli prime minister and held a celebratory photo-op with the Stanley Cup-winning Washington Capitals. To top it off, news broke along the way of the arrest of attorney Michael Avenatti.

By any measure it was a good day for Trump. But the president’s hot streak was all the more noticeable given just how many tough days he has had. Since taking office, he’s been dogged by investigations and staff turnover. He has clashed repeatedly with Congress, governed over a deeply divided country and seen huge pushback against his presidency in the midterm elections.

On Monday, though, everything was coming up Trump.

As is his habit, the president woke early and turned to feeding his Twitter account just after 6 a.m. There was no venting or heckling on this particular morning. Instead, he was eager to celebrate on the day after his attorney general issued a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that found Trump’s campaign did not collude with Russia to swing the 2016 presidential campaign in his favor.

After spending nearly two years shadowed by the investigation and uncertain how it would turn out, an elated Trump gleefully tweeted out quotes and headlines from news reports and watched as aides and allies fanned out across cable news to praise the outcome.

Perhaps of particular delight to Trump was a headline that he tweeted from MSNBC, a network he often rails against. His tweet: “‘Breaking News: Mueller Report Finds No Trump-Russia Conspiracy.’ @MSNBC”

Trump’s big day was just getting started. After aides roundly excoriated Democrats and journalists — two of Trump’s favorite targets — on morning news shows, the administration turned to welcoming Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House.

Trump, who has long enjoyed a close bond with Netanyahu, welcomed the Israeli leader on the South Lawn before escorting him to the Diplomatic Room, where the president signed a proclamation recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a reversal of U.S. policy and a political boost for the embattled Netanyahu.

Slathering on the praise, Netanyahu told Trump: “You’ve always been there, including today, and I thank you.”

Netanyahu joked that he’d brought Trump a case “of the finest wine from the Golan.” But he added that Trump, who doesn’t drink alcohol, is “not a great wine drinker” so he would give it to the president’s staff instead.

The day was punctuated by more news that Trump was likely to welcome: As Trump’s meetings with Netanyahu were winding down, word surfaced that Avenatti had been arrested. The outspoken attorney, who no longer represents Stormy Daniels, is charged with trying to extort millions of dollars from Nike and embezzle a client’s money to pay his own expenses.

While the president did not immediately publicly react to Avenatti’s arrest, his eldest son — who had been a frequent target of Avenatti’s barbs — happily jumped into the fray. On Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. said: “Hey @MichaelAvenatti - It looks like you’ll be the one spending time behind bars after all. #basta”

Trump capped off his day by welcoming the Capitals to the Oval Office, joking back and forth as he sung their praises and reminisced about watching hockey great Bobby Orr play with the Rangers.

“They’re winners. They know how to win,” Trump said of the Caps.

Standing at the back of the room, watching: Trump’s outside attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, celebrating their own win with backslapping and wide grins.

well after the leftist media have been pumping us with stories of Russian collusion as if it were totally real, and an ongoing investigation for two years that seemed to clinch the given fact that Trump was so very obviously guilty, the news came down as if from heaven to clear Trump. Of course he should be happy!

Hope the left media has to endure some financial law suit to pay for all of this total fake news......

You are a fool and ask dumb questions.
1) Noone denies that trump plays dirty. But dirty is not illegal. Its obviously not popular nor does it appear good to say hey i meet with ruskies hopping to get dirt on Hillary. Nor is it popular to say hey I wrote down all my real estate earnings to look poor for tax purposes. But thats a legal loophole. So yes it should be hidden
2) if those things are made public you guys will pounce on the one litle gotccha moment that everyone has especially when things are complex. So we won't give you fodder.

Re The Mueller report. There are certain DOJ laws and regulations plus natonal secuirty concerns. You simply can't make the whole report public. But 420 congressmen/women signed to make whats feasable public. Rod Rosenstein is no trump puppet at all. Trust me he will make public what he can. If Iw ere you I wouldn't bet on finding much from making it public.

Re racism? Nonsense. Trump has done more for blacks than many presidents prior. Did you forget that he signed a law for early release of low level drug offenders not too long ago? Do you mean his anti islam hate? Well rightfully so. Muslims chant death to america and killed us on 9/11.

The NYC Daily News which hates Trump, (and even had a photo of him on the front page, after the 2016 election, stating "The Clown Wins"), actually complimented Trump, with the headline "TEFLON DON".
