Trump fires off post-Christmas Fox and Friends-inspired tweet about 'Crooked Hillary' and the 'bogus' Russia dossier

President Trump kicked off the 340th day of his presidency by fuming about "Crooked Hillary" and the "bogus" Russia dossier:

Trump fired off the tweet from Mar-a-Lago, where he is vacationing for the holidays. "People do what they love on vacation and the president clearly loves watching Fox and criticizing the FBI," observed CNN's Dan Merica.

Although Trump insists he doesn't watch much TV, Tuesday's tweet directly cited Fox and Friends' morning interview with Jason Chaffetz:

Trump has been continually irritated by the ongoing Russia investigation, taking out his frustrations on the FBI. Earlier in December, the White House slammed the bureau as having an "extreme bias" against the president.
