Donald Trump Confesses To A Felony In Early Morning Twitter Rant

Donald Trump is the first president in history to tweet about impending missile strikes in the Middle East, and to casually confess to obstruction of justice. He did both things on Twitter, ten minutes apart, early Wednesday morning.

“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria,” rages Trump. “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it! “

Ten minutes prior, Trump fired off two tweets attacking federal investigators for raiding the home, office, and hotel room of his personal attorney Michael Cohen. In typical randomly capitalized fashion, Trump insisted there was “No Collusion or Obstruction” (re: Russia helping him win the election) then proceeded to immediately confess to obstruction— “(other than I fight back).”

The key words here being “other than,” which is the president admitting that “fighting back” is a Trump rebrand of “obstruction of justice.” Many on Twitter took issue with his words, wondering whether Trump was openly admitting to what we already knew to be true— That he has tried to impede the Russia investigation in more ways than one (firing James Comey, attempting to fire Mueller, threatening to fire Rod Rosenstein, etc.)

We also know the Russia probe was Trump’s reason for firing Comey because Trump said so in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt last May.

Perhaps Trump is confused by the phrase “other than” in the same way his daughter is puzzled by the meaning of “otherwise”?
