Last night, President Trump issued an "official statement" about the sudden FBI appointment of an independent investigator to look into his potential collusion with Russia.
In the statement, "President Trump" said:
"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know — there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.I look forward to this matter concluding quickly. In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country."
Many felt that this seemed a bit too calm and even-keeled for our notoriously thin-skinned President. And those people were right.
This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2017
Some might say that President Trump's hunt for President Obama's birth certificate back in the day would qualify as a greater witch hunt.
Or, perhaps, Hillary Clinton's mischievous emails and Wall Street transcripts?
But President Trump covered Clinton and Obama, too, in his second explosive tweet:
With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2017
While the White House scrambles to explain how a President that "welcomed" an independent investigator last night suddenly woke up at 6AM to realize it was actually a witch hunt, folks on Twitter are taking pot shots at the thin-skinned President.
Conversely, Trump also has his defenders with their own special blend of... facts.
Another matter worthy of inquisition: what happened between President Trump's 6AM and 9AM tweet?
We're going to wait and see if someone can line it up with a Fox and Friends report, perhaps.
That'd make a lot of sense.
