…And We’re Back To The “Big Hoax” Again

From the Washington Post:

After a week of tortuous statements, walk-backs and clarifications on whether he believes the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign, President Trump appeared to have come full circle on Sunday night, dismissing the issue as “all a big hoax.”

In an evening tweet shortly after taking off for Washington following a weekend spent at his golf club in New Jersey, Trump questioned why President Barack Obama did not inform his campaign or the public about alleged Russian interference before Election Day.

“So President Obama knew about Russia before the Election,” Trump said. “Why didn’t he do something about it? Why didn’t he tell our campaign?”

Trump then went on to answer his own questions: “Because it is all a big hoax, that’s why, and he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win!!!”

I’ll say this much for him, he’s consistent in his flip-flopping.

What’s going to be fun to watch — and at this stage that’s about all this is worth now: entertainment value — will be how the White House staff, especially Sara Huckabee Sanders and her team, manage to get through this latest twitterpation with a straight face.  People are going to tune in just to watch.

I was going to say that if they had an ounce of integrity or self-respect they would quit their jobs and go back to doing whatever it was they were before, but the good ships of Integrity and Self-Respect sailed long, long ago.  In fact, they had to prove they had none before they took the job.

One bark on “…And We’re Back To The “Big Hoax” Again

  1. You do know, I assume, that the intelligence folks sat Trump down before the inauguration (biggest crowd in history) and gave him all the inside secret information they’d gathered regarding the Russian meddling in the election as well as the fact that they were convinced much of it was done to help him get elected. He knew then everything the prior administration had discovered. But even then he didn’t want to know what he knew.
