Once again, Donald Trump is trying to turn this whole Russia thing around… and once again, he’s failing miserably.
Just as he did previously with Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, he is demanding (on Twitter, because that’s how being President works) that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi be investigated for HER ties to Russia.
This is of course in response to the Democratic calls for investigation into the growing number of Trump team members who secretly met with Russian government officials during the campaign then lied about it.
In Schumer’s case, Trump’s “smoking gun” was a photo taken by the press at a large political event — a matter of public record Schumer laughed off.
For Pelosi, Trump has something more substantial the exact same, as he tweeted:
Pelosi, who has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions‘ resignation after it was made clear he lied under oath, quickly responded:
.@realDonaldTrump doesn’t know difference between official mtg photographed by press & closed secret mtg his AG lied about under oath. https://t.co/YRFCuJkjLA

Yeah, not sure where Trump is getting the idea that Pelosi lied about whether she had a meeting in which a member of the Russian government was in attendance.
Is POTUS really that clueless?
Or does he know this will be enough misdirection for the people he was able to fool into voting for him?
Obviously he’s got good brain. Why, it only took him THREE attempts to correctly spell the word “hereby” — take a look:
And yes, those deleted tweets are 100% real; you can verify HERE!
