Donald Trump accused of posting two ‘hypocritical’ tweets; POTUS’s attempt to discuss ‘lying’ shockingly backfires
Donald Trump just posted two tweets that have been called hypocritical.
On Thursday, the POTUS acted like a little boy when he discussed Roger Stone’s case by mentioning the likes of Hillary Clinton and Andy McCabe.
“They say Roger Stone lied to congress. Oh, I see, but so did Comey (and he also leaked classified information for which almost everyone, other than crooked Hillary Clinton, goes to jail for a long time), and so did Andy McCabe, who also lied to the FBI! FAIRNESS?” he tweeted.
According to Political Flare, the fact that the POTUS mentioned Clinton and McCabe made it seems as though the president is immature. The publication pointed out that if Trump’s claims against Clinton and McCabe are true, it doesn’t mean that he can use them to acquit Stone.
“Let’s pretend for a moment that his three examples are true (pretend, because they’re not). It is second-grade logic that “because others did it, and were not punished, it means that Stone should not be punished.” Yes, try that argument sometimes in front of a judge,” journalist Jason Miciak said.
The publication also questioned Trump’s audacity to talk about lying in his tweet when he is known as one of the biggest liars in America. The journalist is confident that if 1,000 people are asked if they associate lying with Trump, 99% of them will say yes.
In his second tweet, Trump talked about John Kerry and Senator Chris Murphy.
“John Kerry and Senator Chris Murphy grossly violated the Logan Act with respect to Iran. If a Republican did what they did, there would be very serious ramifications!” he wrote.
The Logan Act prevents private citizens from contradicting official United States policy or attempting to establish US policy on the international scene. Miciak said that it is quite surprising that Trump would bring up the Logan Act when he himself has done far worse things prior to being sworn as president.
Mike Flynn and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, frequently communicated with Russia about the sanctions that President Barack Obama imposed on Russia for interfering in the elections, among many other things.
