Trump is clearly mocking the media reporting that he is the focus of Mueller's investigation.
Trump is pointing out how absurd it is for the media to report such nonsense because if it were true that Trump was being investigated for firing Comey, Rosenstein would have had to recuse himself already since he is the one who advised Trump to fire Comey.
It is a media witch hunt, a complete farce and I can't believe so people still buy into it.

Let's think this one through.
Why are statements "[run] through and edited by the machinery of [...] PR firms" bad in the first place? You reference "transparency" and "opacity" so I'll assume you're implying that the result of this PR filtering would be statements that's are intended to obscure or conceal some fact or detail.
Fair enough but if you're essentially lamenting a lack of accurate information, then can you please explain how extemporaneous bulls# is an improvement?
What I see is a flimsy excuse of being "plain-spoken" to cover up copious amounts of innacurate information and outright deceit. When a person is truly plain-spoken, they are more honest, not less.
