How many times can the President tweet the same thing?
Trump has now taken to Twitter yet again to ramble on about how issues surrounding connections to Russia on the part of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta somehow warrant at least as much consideration as the ongoing scandal regarding his own campaign’s ties to Russia.
The president wrote early this Tuesday evening on Twitter, “Why doesn’t Fake News talk about Podesta ties to Russia as covered by
@FoxNews or money from Russia to Clinton – sale of Uranium?”

There is a really good reason, Mr. President, why the media isn’t camped out on a possible scandal involving John Podesta.
John Podesta is not the President of the United States; you are.
The issues with Podesta involve him potentially violating federal regulations via not properly disclosing his connections to a Russian financial institution when assuming a role in the Obama administration as an adviser to the President.
The issues with Trump are well-documented, with a number of members of his inner circle under intense scrutiny from all sides on account of them blatantly lying about having met with Russian officials or not. In addition to that, as mentioned, Trump is the sitting President of the United States of America.
His issues are most definitely far more pressing than those surrounding an individual who served in a peripheral role in a past presidential administration.
Trump just keeps going back again and again to the election season, but there’s nothing there to help his case.
As always, comments on Trump’s tweet capture the absurdity of the situation quite well.
also, since the news is "fake", wouldn't them NOT talking about it make it true in your tiny little mind?
