NY AG Educates Trump On Twitter After Cuomo Attack


Mr. Trump has trouble remembering basic things like words and that it’s bad to stare directly into the sun. So, it’s really no surprise that he has made a fool of himself yet again with a public statement via his Twitter account. And just like every other time he’s put his tiny foot in his mouth, someone who actually knows what they’re talking about sets him straight.

This is what Trump tweeted Thursday:

I’m seeing Governor Cuomo today at The White House. He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics. New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but don’t bring Fredo!

Proving that he has no idea how the government works after three years in its highest position, Trump fails to realize that the governor has nothing to do with lawsuits, because that’s clearly what attorneys general are for.

And that’s exactly who responded to Trump’s online idiocy. Check out what NY AG Leticia James said on Twitter:

When you stop violating the rights and liberties of all New Yorkers, we will stand down. Until then, we have a duty and responsibility to defend the Constitution and the rule of law. BTW, I file the lawsuits, not the Governor.

Ouch. That one has to sting coming from Mr. Trump’s home state of New York, and from a black, female attorney general no less. Another woman of color, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also responded to Trump’s tweet:

Trump is publicly admitting that he is holding Global Entry for New Yorkers hostage in exchange for dropping lawsuits against him and his family’s lawbreaking behavior. This is corrupt, illegal, and authoritarian. Hope Collins and Murkowski are proud of their vote.

People online were thrilled to see James fighting back against Mr. Trump’s misinformed rants, and they had plenty to say for themselves.
