21 Trump "Witch Hunt" Memes & Tweets Calling Out America's Special Snowflake
President Trump's tweets are often ridiculous. At times, it seems to be a source of pride for Trump to tweet whatever he likes, whenever he wants, in whatever lingo he so chooses. And while many of us are prone to exaggeration, few can compete with Trump in the department of hyperbole, as evidenced in Trump's most recent tweet calling the investigation into his administration's alleged ties to Russia "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history." And judging by the barrage of memes mocking Trump's "witch hunt" tweet, it seems that even by his standards, this one was a stretch.
There's a long history in this country of politicians, and especially presidents, being subjected to all manner of inquiry that a free press and dissenting ideas tends to bring. But it was especially rich coming from Trump, a man who exhibited zero qualms about pushing unfounded conspiracy theories. In fact, one of his favorite targets was President Obama, as Trump is well known for being a primary pusher of the "birther" conspiracy. Trump also, you know, often presided over "Lock her up" chants aimed at Hillary Clinton. The list of politicians he's insinuated terrible things about goes on.
Here's a small sampling of what Twitter had to say about Trump's playing the witch hunt victim:
2That Kenya claim keeps coming back
Again, you can't declare that the president isn't actually a citizen of America, fail to prove anything of the sort, and then claim you're being treated unfairly because the Justice Department thinks an investigation into your administration is warranted. Sorry, not sorry.
4Ted Cruz's dad & JFK's assassination
Remember when Trump suggested his Republican primary rival Ted Cruz's father was somehow implicated in the murder of JFK? Anyone? Yeah. That happened.
5Time to be an adult already
Investigations happen. President Bill Clinton endured a special investigator, and so did President Reagan. Neither of them ended up losing their job, and both emerged more or less alright after the ordeal. If there's no "there" there, Trump really shouldn't have to whine quite this much...
8Who's the tough guy now?
Trump is tough, or so we were told. He definitely had no issue being "tough" on his opponents (calling Clinton a "nasty woman," for one) and protestors at rallies ("Get 'em out of here!" he often declared). But it looks like Trump might need a lesson in being a little tougher... on himself.
19No more blaming Spicer, OK?
Sure, Trump's communications team isn't always stellar. (Remember: Sean Spicer actually hid in a bush.) But when your boss tweets uncensored, unedited, and unfiltered thoughts at will, there's just so much any PR person can do.
