Let's all just take a moment to savor the fact that the new leader of the Republican party is referring to ANYTHING as a "witch hunt."...is all of the illegal leaks of classified and other information. It is a total "witch hunt!"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 3, 2017
Oh yes, that is delightful isn't it?
And then let's keep in mind that just about every time that we learn something new from this so-called "witch hunt" that it eventually leads to a member of the Trump administration having to admit wrong doing and either resigning, getting fired, or recusing themselves.
Trump followed up this series of tweets with this one.
Geez, imagine that.It is so pathetic that the Dems have still not approved my full Cabinet.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 3, 2017
Personally I think that the Democrats would be more than happy to confirm some of Trump's cabinet picks if they can find one who does not have the Russian flag tattooed on their ass.
Update: Interesting to note that the Russian foreign minister used essentially Trump's exact words to describe the media pressure on Jeff Sessions right now.:
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the pressure on Mr Sessions "strongly resembles a witch hunt or the times of McCarthyism, which we thought were long over in the United States as a civilised country."
Wow looky there, yet another amazing coincidence!
Update 2: Check out this pathetic attempt to obfuscate.
Senator Schumer is having none of it.We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite! pic.twitter.com/Ik3yqjHzsA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 3, 2017
