Twitter Reacts To Trump’s Morning Meltdown And It Is F*cking Hilarious (IMAGES)

-

President Trump, unsurprisingly, took to Twitter on Thursday morning to address the Wednesday announcement that the Department of Justice appointed a Special Prosecutor to deal with the Russia scandal.

Fitting in with the way that he’s long responded to allegations that he and his team have maintained illegal connections to Russia, Trump insisted, basically, that there is nothing worth the appointment of a special prosecutor in the Russia scandal. He wrote, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”

Of course, there is something there in the scandal over his team’s connections to Russia.

For example, President Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lied about his financial connections to Russia when being taken on. Flynn, besides maintaining these financial connections, also held secret meetings with the Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergei Kisylak, for the purposes of establishing a “back channel” of communication between the Trump administration and the Kremlin.

Flynn was the first to use this back channel, apparently communicating to Kisylak at the time that the Russian government need not worry about Obama-era sanctions on Russia, because the Trump administration intended to repeal them. Flynn was eventually forced out of the job after the details of his case appeared in the media and sparked public outcry.

Of course, the “smoke” associated with the Trump team’s connections to Russia doesn’t end there. Trump associate Carter Page took suspicious trips to Russia during the campaign season, and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort worked for years as a consultant for pro-Russia political forces in Eastern Europe.

Manafort is under federal investigation for his financial ties to these pro-Russia forces.

Still, unsurprisingly, Trump thinks that the investigation into all of this, as newly led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, is nothing more than a “witch hunt.”

Twitter responded to President Trump’s characterization of the Russia investigation as a “witch hunt,” and some of the top replies on the “witch hunt” trending topic page are definitely worth looking at.

Many replies focused on the fact that, actually, there have been a number of other incidents that could probably be much better described as a “witch hunt” than the Russia investigation.
