How Much Stupid Can Trump Cram Into One Tweet? (Hint: A Huuuuge Amount)
How many tweets does it take to get to the center of a coherent thought from Donald Trump?
Just like in the Tootsie Pop ad, the world may never know.
It’s no secret that President Trump is addicted to Twitter. But the Tweeter-in-Chief might want to cool it with the 140 character rants.
Trump’s favorite late-night social media habit has raised quite a few eyebrows for his nonsensical and reality-detached rantings.
So what did he say this time, exactly?
A recent tweet from the President revealshe is in panic mode over the ongoing Russia investigation, desperate to avoid appearing guilty of any wrongdoing.
As the FBI closes in on him, he makes less and less sense. In a feeble attempt to make them appear biased, Trump attacked the FBI and the Obama Administration.
“Why did the Obama Administration start an investigation into the Trump Campaign (with zero proof of wrongdoing) long before the Election in November? Wanted to discredit so Crooked H would win. Unprecedented. Bigger than Watergate! Plus, Obama did NOTHING about Russian meddling,” Trump tweeted.
In other words, Trump starts off his tweet by blaming Obama for starting an investigation into Trump's ties with Russia, only to end the same tweet blaming him for doing nothing about the Russia investigation. Which one is it?
Trump's tweet is so logically inconsistent, but that doesn’t even occur to him.
Trump also claimed that Obama wanted to discredit him so that Hillary Clinton would win the election.
But according to The New Yorker, “Obama Administration officials were mindful of the Hatch Act, which forbids government employees to use their positions to influence political elections. The State Department officials didn’t know who was funding Steele’s research, but they could see how politically explosive it was. So they backed away.”
If that were the case and there was really some plot to damage Trump’s campaign, Obama would have made the Russia investigation public before the election.
All Trump’s tweet accomplished was revealing how paranoid and in denial our President really is: "bigly."
