By now, it’s common knowledge that there is almost nothing more incriminating to Donald Trump’s Russia scandal than his own Twitter feed. Over the past several weeks, Trump’s social media activity has become full of evidence that could be used against him and his administration, and he really isn’t helping to clean it up.
On Friday night, Trump went absolutely psycho on Twitter and couldn’t help himself from making things worse. Unable to muster any self-control, Trump decided to blame his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, for the current mess he’s in now. Tweeting that the entire thing was all Obama’s fault because Obama didn’t stop the Russia attack on the 2016 election, Trump tweeted:
Once again, Trump is painting himself as a poor innocent victim in this whole thing. But that’s not the point – a more disturbing detail is revealed when this tweet is compared with a tweet Trump posted just the day before. On Thursday morning, Trump was referring to the Russia scandal as a “hoax” constructed by the Democrats.
So one day, Trump saying that the scandal is fake, and the next day he is whining that the scandal is real and that Obama is to blame. Make up your mind, Trump!
Trump is so nervous about this scandal that he’s basically breaking down over it. He can’t keep his own stories straight and continues to dig a deeper hole for himself. He’s practically paving the road to his impeachment with every tweet and statement he makes. It will only be a few days (or hours, in all honesty) before Trump posts another extremely revealing tweet, so it’s only a matter of time before this investigation blows over.
