Donald Trump was away in Vietnam meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un during his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress. As soon as he returned, of course, he weighed in.
If Michael Cohen is “discredited” because he lied previously on behalf of Trump, no one should ever consider the current president a credible source for anything. Even in these tweets, lies pile upon lies.
Lanny Davis was never Hillary Clinton’s lawyer. He was the special counsel for Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky hearings, but Trump needs to turn any negative press about him into some kind of Clinton conspiracy. Next, he’ll blame the “deep state” and Obama-appointed judges for his troubles, but at the end of the day, it’s Trump who is being called on his lies and his con.
Trump’s whining about how Republicans have been “abused” is also laughable. Hillary sat through multiple investigations about Benghazi and her use of a private email server, all to absolutely no results. Obama led the country through Trump’s birther tours, ignoring the ridiculous and racist suspicions about his birthplace. How were Republicans abused the past two years when they controlled both the House and Senate as well as the presidency?
At this point, it’s clear that Trump is going to continue to lie and deflect while the country watches him be exposed for years of grifting and lies. The Mueller investigation is far from over. Trump’s business is being investigated, as is his campaign and his inauguration committee. His charity was already dismantled because Trump and his family were using it as a piggy bank to defraud donors.
This is far from over.
Twitter was not sympathetic to Trump’s whining, either. Read some of their comments below:
