It wasn’t hard to foretell how popular vote loser Donald Trump would react to the news that Michael Flynn was found guilty of lying to the FBI and is making a deal with the special prosecutors that will likely mean bad, bad news for Trump.
He would distance himself from Flynn – Hours after the news broke, indeed, a Trump lawyer suggested Flynn was an “Obama official” who only very briefly worked for Trump.
He would go off the rails on Twitter – Of course, he tweeted what amounted to a confession of obstruction charges, only to back off later claiming his lawyer wrote the tweet, not himself, and then tweeted multiple lies about how Flynn’s case actually proved there “was no collusion,” which he repeated several times, so his mindless followers would know it is true.
Trump Tweeted: “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!”
And then, also predictably, he turned the whole thing around to be somehow, insanely, about Hillary Clinton.
Well after dark on Saturday night, Trump fired off this surreal tweet: “So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday ‘interrogation’ with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double standard?”
Then Donald Trump tweeted:
“Many people in our Country are asking what the ‘Justice’ Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and ‘acid washed’ 33,000 Emails? No justice!”
So now he’s spreading deranged lies about his former election opponent, while attacking his own Department of Justice for failing to prosecute her for these imaginary crimes. Trump doesn’t even know who his enemy is anymore. At this point Trump’s biggest enemy is himself.
This guy just can’t get out of his own way.
Hopefully, the swift hammer of justice will be coming to the Oval Office very soon.
