The president kicked off the weekend, as he so often does, by firing off a series of angry, off the edge tweets.
Well, in the tumult over all the rest of the things that he said, there is one point that was likely missed by most by but is at least as disturbing as some of the more talked about points from the president’s weekend Twitter bender.
There has long been tension between the White House and the office of Special Counsel for the Russia investigation Robert Mueller, and it was no different this weekend, when Trump railed about how Mueller is supposedly off track in his investigations.
‘So many people are asking why isn’t the A.G. or Special Council looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes. 33,000 e-mails deleted?’
Besides the fact that neither Clinton nor Comey committed any documentable crimes, there is something else to take note of here — a “council” isn’t the same thing as a “counsel.”
As former Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer summed it up:
‘It’s a sad statement that as a nation we are fine with the fact that the President doesn’t know the difference between “council” & “counsel”.’
Indeed it is.
