Surprise surprise, Donald Trump has posted another ridiculous tweet, this one in regards to his sons’s association with Russia. This ought to be good.
Trump tried to make a point that “most politicians” would’ve taken the meeting with a Russian lawyer that has wrapped his oldest son in a web of controversy, on no other media platform than his infamous twitter account. No Donald, that is not something most politicians would do, that’s some dumb shit that YOU would do.
Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That's politics!

“That’s politics!”…but is it really? Unsurprisingly, many twitter users fired back to this obnoxious comment.
1. Not what most other politicians (Ds, Rs, everyone), let alone intel community, are saying
2. "That's politics!" isn't a legal defense https://t.co/YfsQi2KbWX

I've worked for many politicians. Never would have met with foreign adversaries for opposition research. We draw line well ahead of treason. https://t.co/raCkiIP17Z

Trump in 2016: consummate outsider, no more politics as usual, drain the swamp.
Trump today: "that's politics!" https://t.co/6A2fvRoQnD

Trump Jr. even admitted that he would’ve handled things different “in retrospect”. A statement that was quickly resurfaced as a counterargument to this tweet.
Remember: Don Jr. told Fox he probably would have done things differently "in retrospect". Trump basically says 'anyone would have done it'. https://t.co/1gVoTcBIrN

I’m not sure why people even take his tweets seriously anymore…everything that he tweets is so embarrassingly stupid.
The Trump tweet cycle:
1 Didn't happen
2 Only talked about orphans.
3. All campaigns conspire with the Kremlin. https://t.co/W3xwaHwexl
