Do you mean to tell me that he didn’t see this coming?
President Donald Trump said Sen. Richard Burr’s decision to issue a subpoena to his son, Donald Trump Jr., surprised him.
“Well, I was very surprised,” Trump said. “I saw Richard Burr saying there was no collusion two or three weeks ago. He went outside and somebody asked him … but I was very surprised to see [this].”
Fellow Republicans criticized Burr, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, for issuing the rogue subpoena for Trump Jr.’s testimony.
Trump said that Trump Jr. already testified for 20 hours in front of Congress and that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators did not charge him.
“The Mueller report came out — that’s the Bible — the Mueller report came out, and they said he did nothing wrong,” he said.
I think it’s confirmed now that Trump doesn’t read our humble publication. Because if he did, he would know that we were warning him about this way back when.
The literal title of one article was: “Don Jr. is Next.”
Trump must have been watching Fox News instead.
Trump suggested it was ridiculous of Burr to demand more testimony from his son.
“Frankly, for my son, after being exonerated, to now get a subpoena to go again and speak again after close to 20 hours of telling everybody that would listen about a nothing meeting? Yeah, I’m surprised.”
When asked if he would fight the subpoena, Trump replied, “We’ll see what happens. I’m just very surprised. I really am.”
This is serious stuff.
Has no one sat him down and told him the stakes of the game that he’s playing now?
I think that’s literally what happened here. The man won on a fluke and just assumed that everyone liked him and went to the White House hoping to be a popular president when all was said and done.
The guy had no idea what he was walking into.
Things that seems so obvious for people like us who follow the news and try to understand politics are just totally blind-siding Trump again and again.
In his defense, maybe he wasn’t expecting Burr to go after him, and that’s why he’s so surprised… but that’s a stretch, MAGApedes, and you know it. More likely than not, he thought that the investigation was over and that Don Jr. was out of reach.
But he wasn’t.
No sir, no one in the Trump family is off-limits.
Except Ivanka. And even then, I’m not sure. They want to get Trump so badly, they may do something stupid and attack his emotional surrogate wife who is, in actual fact, totally fucking over his presidency.
I’m giving Trump’s family more thought than Trump seems to have ever done himself.
How could anyone not see that they were going to go after Don next?
