The president of the United States spent his morning playing golf – but it doesn’t seem to have cooled his ire, since he immediately took to Twitter to fire off an attack on President Obama the minute he got back to his mansion at Mar-a-Lago.
Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election. So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?

Once again, the president is shamelessly ignoring reality in order to advance his own narrative, one that somehow clears him and his family of any wrongdoing despite the mountains of evidence to the contrary.

President Obama did try to do something about the Russian meddling. He asked a bipartisan group of Senators to support him in announcing that the Russians had interfered in our election, appealing to Mitch McConnell’s non-existent patriotism and asking him to choose his country over his party so that President Obama’s revelation wouldn’t seem like a partisan effort to tilt the election in favor of Clinton and instead be unified condemnation of an attack by a hostile foreign power.
McConnell, of course, famously refused. “Unfortunately, as is well documented, Senator McConnell was unwilling to help — only making matters worse” groused a former Obama administration official in an email to POLITICO.
When President Obama did take actions against Russia – passing a slew of new sanctions on the country and the oligarchs that control it – President Trump’s National Security Advisor hopped on the phone to quickly assure the Russians that they would “take care” of it.
Trump’s tweet is nothing but a cheap shot that ignores all the facts in favor of his own delusional narrative – and all the tweets in the world aren’t going to be enough to stop Special Counsel Mueller and his team of crack investigators.
