In a failed attempt to deflect attention away from the arrest of his longtime political advisor, Roger Stone, President Donald Trump on Saturday launched a raging attack on former heads of the FBI, CIA and National Intelligence.
“If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Lisa Page & lover, Baker and soooo many others?” Trump asked.
He also slammed Hillary Clinton.
“What about Hillary to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails?” he continued.
“What about Lisa & Peter’s deleted texts & Wiener’s laptop? Much more!” he added.
The president’s tweet triggered an avalanche of mockery.

To be clear, Roger Stone was indicted for lying to congress,witness tampering and obstruction of justice. There is solid evidence in the indictment of this. Stop blaming Hillary Clinton for wrongdoings by your campaign.

Oh. So you admit he lied?
See that’s the problem with what-aboutism. It’s not a defense.
It’s an admission coupled with distraction.

What about the fact that EVERYONE in your inner circle is under CRIMINAL investigation, pleaded GUILTY, has been CONVICTED, and/or is in PRISON.

You have single-handedly ruined the GOP for an entire generation. I used to vote split ticket, especially down ballot. No more. Those GOP down ballot share a platform, support and funds with YOU. Children wont vote GOP ever when they become eligible. They know wrong from right.

You made a yuge mistake shutting down the government to blackmail Democrats, and Mexico will never pay for your boner. Your wall is a metaphor for your penis. Nobody wants to see it and you can't get it up. And then you caved. #wenis #TrumpCaved
