In a moment that will surely be looked upon with relish when Robert Mueller exposes Trump’s total complicity in the 2016 Russian hacking operation, Trump went on Twitter Tuesday morning and blamed Barack Obama for Russia’s interference in the election.
Trump used Obama’s own words against him by tweeting out one of the former President’s quotes:
“There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, there’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that it will happen this time, and so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and make his case to get votes.”
Trump then hypothesized that Obama predicted Hillary would win and didn’t want to “rock the boat.” He also insisted that he had been harder on Russia than Obama ever was.
That’s rich, considering Trump loudly criticized Obama for placing sanctions on Russia before Obama left office. Plus, Trump is famous now for bragging about his great relationship with Vladimir Putin and for constantly reporting on the two politicians’ hours-long conversations about life, love, and systematically dismantling democracy.
Also, there’s no way that Obama could have been fully aware of the Russians’ involvement in the election results, as even the FBI was only mildly aware of the looming operation.
As per usual, Trump is just changing his tune on a dime to deflect any blame about every little thing whatsoever. Never mind the fact that by criticizing Obama’s role in the 2016 election, Trump is basically admitting to not winning his election fair and square. It’s almost as if he didn’t think his tweet through before posting it!
And poor Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. Trump lambasted his tiny Attorney General again. In a tweet earlier today, Trump tapped out the following: “Question: If all of the Russia meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Session!” Adding insult to injury, Trump can’t even spell his AG’s name correctly. It’s Sessions, idiot.
