Pelosi Mocks Trump For Flip-Flopping On Mueller Statements

Last week, Donald Trump said that impeachment was a “dirty, filthy, and disgusting word.” Yet, so many U.S. voters find the president’s attitude toward immigrants fleeing terrible fates in Central America dirty, filthy, and disgusting. As the pressure mounts, POTUS’ thoughts appear to ricochet around as warp speed. Then, this happened.

On D-Day 45 in Normandy, the commander-in-chief was late getting to the commemoration ceremony, because he took an interview with Fox News. In the interview with Laura Ingrahm, Trump was talking about the former special counselor Robert Mueller III saying he “made a fool out of himself:”

‘Let me tell you, he made such a fool out of himself … because what people don’t report is the letter he had to do to straighten out his testimony because his testimony was wrong.’

In an unusual press conference, the normally silent former special counselor Robert Mueller III referred to an Office Legal Counsel (OLC) rule that a sitting president could never be indicted while he or she was in office:

‘Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider. If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that. … We concluded that we would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president committed a crime.’

AG Barr testified in a Senate hearing that Mueller did not decide whether Trump had actually committed an obstruction of justice crime. He noted that Mueller said repeatedly:

‘(T)hat he emphatically was not saying that but for the OLC opinion, he would have found obstruction.’

Department of Justice (DOJ) spokesperson for the special counsel Peter Carr, Kerri Kupec released a statement that read:

“The Attorney General has previously stated that the Special Counsel repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that, but for the [Office of Legal Counsel] opinion, he would have found the President obstructed justice …The Special Counsel’s report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination—one way or the other—about whether the President committed a crime,” they continued. “There is no conflict between these statements.’

Trump could not resist beating up on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):

‘Nancy Pelosi, I call her Nervous Nancy, Nancy Pelosi doesn’t talk about it. Nancy Pelosi is a disaster, ok? She’s a disaster. Let her do what she wants, you know what? I think they’re in big trouble.’

Then, the president quickly pivoted to his horrid Mexican tariffs idea and told Ingrahm:

‘When you’re the piggy bank that everybody steals from and robs from, they deceive you like they’ve been doing from 25 years, tariffs are a beautiful thing, it’s a beautiful word if you know how to use them properly.’

In April, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency reported a record monthly high for 13 years. They apprehended 99,304 people. It got worse, rising to almost 133,000 arrests in May. A U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official said:

‘We are in full-blown emergency.’

Zipping back to the events in Normandy, Trump tweeted about D-Day commemorating 75 years of history. He said it was a “very, very horrific day” and “a very special day:”

‘There was never a more important event than the event 75 years ago today, think of that? These were incredible, brave people who were just being blown up and you have the graves … These were people who knew they were going to die. It was, it was, horrendous… This was a very, very horrific day, but it was also a very special day and it’s an honor to be here.’
