WATCH: Trump rants against ‘sad’ FBI and praises Putin after reporters ambush him at White House

President Donald Trump delivered an angry rant on the White House lawn in front of reporters on Friday in which he ranted about both the Department of Justice and the FBI.

When reporters stopped Trump on the White House lawn Friday morning to ask him questions, the president angrily ranted about the FBI in the wake of text messages that revealed an FBI agent who was part of Robert Mueller’s investigation called Trump an “idiot.”

“You have a lot of angry people,” Trump said of the FBI. “It’s a very sad thing to watch, I will tell you that. I am going today on behalf of the FBI, their new building, and when everybody — not me, everybody, the level of anger, and what they have been witnessing with respect to the FBI, it’s certainly very sad.”

The president then fumed about accusations that his campaign colluded with Russian intelligence officials during the 2016 presidential election.

“There’s been no collusion, that has been proven,” the president falsely asserted, as there has not been any definitive proof that Trump’s campaign did not collude with Russia yet. “The Senate and the House, my worst enemies, they walk out and say, ‘There is no collusion but we will continue to look.’ They are spending millions and millions of dollars and there’s absolutely no collusion.”

While Trump had angry words to say about the FBI and members of Congress, he did have warm words for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The call with Vladimir Putin, it was great,” Trump said. “He said very nice things about what I have done for the country in terms of the economy, and he said also some negative things in terms elsewhere, but the primary point was to talk about North Korea, because we would love to have his help on North Korea.”

Finally, Trump said that he was still not sure about whether he would issue a pardon for disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who recently pled guilty to lying to the FBI.

“I don’t want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet,” he said. “We will see what happens.”

Insulting his own justice department and praising an enemy foreign leader. POTUS, everybody. What a fucking traitor. And the sad part is it's only because they are investigating him. If they were investigating Clinton like he keeps saying, he'd be singing their damn praises. I don't think we can survive his thin skin.

The Heat is On and Trump is chartering unknown, to him, waters.

Good advice for Comey, McNabe, Clinton, etal.

If you watched the statements on the lawn, there was no "ranting".

So will Trump refuse to be interviewed by the special council?

Thanks for advice, I should have watched it <eyeroll>.

Your boy is flailing. His whole presidency has been yelling and pounding on the table.

"We will see what happens."  Another Apprentice White House edition cliffhanger. 

He's used this term many times before. Basically, he's looking into pardoning him if Flynn hasn't turned over anything that would incriminate trump. I'm sure his legal team is weighing the options of firing Meuller and pardoning Flynn without repeating the Saturday Night Massacre.

I'm sure he's weighing the descrepancy between Flynn being prosecuted for lying to the FBI while no prosecution for Abedin and Mills for lying to the FBI.
