It is impossible for Donald Trump to simply tell the truth. Even when he has the best day of his presidency, he cannot help but lie and try to make it sound significantly better than it was. The hypocrisy of his Sunday lie about the Mueller report made it absolutely laughable.
The Mueller report, according to Attorney General William Barr’s letter, did not exonerate Trump. It said that he would not make a “traditional prosecutorial decision” and that he would neither determine that Trump committed a crime nor would he exonerate him.
Trump and his supporters will crow today and for some time to come about the conclusions of the Mueller report, but the truth is that we have not seen that report yet. We saw a summary of it from Trump’s hand-picked AG. Imagine if Eric Holder and not GOP-led committees in ten separate investigations into Benghazi had determined that Obama and Hillary Clinton had done nothing wrong. Trump and the Republicans would totally have considered that concrete evidence, right?
Many questions remain now that the four-page summary has been made public. If there was no collusion, why did Trump’s campaign officials lie about their contacts with Kremlin officials? If Trump knew he would be exonerated because he had done nothing wrong, why did he spend two years trying to discredit Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, and everyone else involved in the investigation?
Twitter was not impressed with Trump’s tweet, nor are they willing to fall for the lies. Read some of their comments below:
