Donald Trump’s motto seems to run along the lines of “if the truth doesn’t work, confuse them with lies.” He’s thrown so many conspiracy theories at the wall over the Mueller investigation and his criminal friends that he no longer seems to remember what sticks and what doesn’t, but he expects all Republicans to fall in line behind those lies.
After Trump commuted the 40-month sentence of his longtime friend and unofficial campaign advisor, Roger Stone, most Republicans remained silent despite the obvious corruption of the act. Two GOP senators, Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Pat Toomey (R-RI) dared break from the pact and speak out against the decision, calling the move “unprecedented” and “corrupt.”
Trump expressed his rage on Sunday morning that the two have ignored his many lies and conspiracy theories around the Mueller investigation into alleged Russian collusion by the Trump campaign, the investigation which uncovered Roger Stone’s lies and attempts at witness tampering. Everyone involved in the investigation, in fact, was corrupt or secretly plotting against Trump, everyone is a hypocrite for not criticizing President Obama’s “spying,” and everyone was unfair to him. It’s a long-established process under the Trump administration to condemn the investigators instead of ever answering for the president’s actions.
All of Trump’s nonsense about biases and spying obscure the fact that Roger Stone was caught lying multiple times during his court case and that he threatened the life of a witness in his case as well as the witness’s dog. That’s the simple truth of the matter and no amount of conspiracy theories will change that.
Twitter certainly wasn’t buying it. Read some of their comments below:
