Alleged Donald Trump arrived back in the U.S. today, but the 70-year-old seems to be a bit confused as to which country he’s in. You know, sort of the opposite of what Hillary Clinton did during her time as Secretary of State in which she traveled a total of 956,733 miles without breaking a sweat. Clinton is the most-traveled Secretary of State in history. She visited 112 countries during her four-year tenure but on the campaign trail, Trump said she didn’t have the stamina to be president. It was reported that Trump’s lawyers want him to STFU on social media, but that’s not working. He’s back!
“Just arrived in Italy,” Trump tweeted, then followed that with, “Just returned from Europe.” It took 13 minutes for the former reality show star to delete his first tweet. It’s as if someone from his staff was reading his timeline and said, “Stop it! You’re back in the U.S., Old Man!”
Another one of his tweets reads, “Big win in Montana for Republicans. We.” Then he never finishes his thought.
Surely he remembers his stay in Italy. As world leaders took a walk together down the streets of Taormina, Sicily on Saturday, the exhausted amateur president followed them in a golf cart. Trump couldn’t muster the energy to walk 700 yards.
Perhaps he’s forgotten that he’s in the midst of a scandal that’s being reported as bigger than Watergate. His own son-in-law Jared Kushner is the focus of the investigation right now.
Ivanka’s husband tried to establish a covert back-channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin. Kushner talked to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December at Trump Tower about establishing a “secret and secure communications channel.” Michael Flynn, Trump’s disgraced former National Security Adviser attended that meeting, too, and Kushner failed to disclose the meetings. Team Trump tried to initially deny any contacts with Russia and today his administration has declined to comment on this latest scandal. But now, Trump has taken to Twitter to just call it fake news, blah blah blah,
Tell that to the feds, Old Man. They’re all up in this.
