(Palm Beach, FL) – It started around 11 last night with this tweet: Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!And that was just the beginning. Since then, Trump has put his focus on Obama yet again and a reverse psychology tactic that is pretty worn out at this point saying Russia is laughing at America. “If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.” He then said Moscow is laughing and urged America to get smart. His comments come of course after more than a dozen Russians were indicted for meddling in the 2016 election.THEN he said that he never said that Russia didn’t meddle in the 2016 election noting his comments during his campaign that…“it may be Russia, or China or another country or group, or it may be a 400 pound genius sitting in bed and playing with his computer.” Trump said the hoax is the idea that his campaign had colluded with Russia.
Naturally it didn’t stop there. Accompanied with the regular insult, Trump then praised Democratic Representative Adam Schiff for putting some of the blame for Russian meddling in the 2016 election on the Obama administration. “Finally, ‘Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election. He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam!” He followed that up with a tweet suggesting Democrats were trying to blame the Obama administration’s response to Russian meddling for Hillary Clinton’s loss.
Tired yet? It continued…..Of course it wouldn’t be Trump if he didn’t slam the media. He pointed fingers at news outlets over their coverage of the indictments and for not focusing on how the indictments exonerate his campaign from colluding with Russia. Trump noted it was “funny how the Fake News Media doesn’t want to say that the Russian group was formed in 2014,” long before he decided to run for President. He added, sarcastically, ” Maybe they knew I was going to run even though I didn’t know!” Trump’s critics have accused the President of trying to spin the indictments in his favor, even though he has previously called Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation a hoax.AND THEN….HE WENT BACK TO PRESIDENT OBAMA tweeting he’s “never gotten over the fact that Obama was able to send one-point-seven Billion Dollars in CASH to Iran and nobody in Congress, the FBI or Justice called for an investigation!” He’s referring to money delivered to Iran in 2016, which included interest on Iranian money held by the U.S. since the 1970s. Some of the money was given the same day four American prisoners were released from Iranian custody. The Obama White House denied it was a ransom payment but later admitted the money was used as leverage in the prisoner release. The payment was made in cash because Congress had outlawed dollar transfers to Tehran. Iranian media at the time played up the payment as if it were indeed a ransom.
