There’s this funny thing that’s been happening time and time again lately, where old Trump tweets are remarkably ironic in the light of some new happening in the Trump administration.
Trump has long been a habitual tweeter, and some of these old tweets put the shallowness of the belligerent businessman’s rhetoric on full display.
Back in October, Trump tweeted a curiously phrased promise to get a special prosecutor to take on the Clinton email scandal, even though at the time, Clinton had been completely cleared of any wrongdoing.

Now, the ironic thing is that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein just this week announced the appointment of a special prosecutor to oversee the Russia investigation. Trump has long clamored against the idea of a special prosecutor to take on his case, but Rosenstein, who took over leadership of the Russia investigation upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s recusal, evidently thought otherwise.
Twitter commenters descended on the above October 2016 Trump tweet en masse to point out the irony in the fact that what Trump had decreed about Hillary Clinton had fallen upon him.
