Is Trump trying to use this to say that him colluding with Russia isn't really that bad because Hillary colluded against Bernie?

Like even if this was true and both parties did collude does he not... understand how different those two collusions are?

No of course not right

Trump has gotten away with every heinous act he's ever pulled so from his point of view everything he does is justified and "legal."

There is no deeper motivation here, and he doesn't give a shit that I know he is a moron.

This is and always has been about him protecting his ego from the reality that he is thought of as a illegitimate president and he lost the popular vote. Every action he has ever taken in his life has been about his insane narcicism.

Trump is literally the easiest and most transparent person ever to analyze.

Yep. There's no great strategy to his madness. He says this shit because he wants to.

I mean, something probably triggered it, so he may be aware of news coming, but a 5am pissy-tweet like this is not 4D chess.

Meh, tell me something I don't know.

Also, this does not distract mw from the fact that you're destroying USA.

It's the same as the Right's going on about how James Comey "leaked" his memos. Using the word to evoke a bad thing (in "leaking", people think illegal Wikileaks releases of classified information by antagonists) when the thing that actually happened isn't anything like that (in Comey "leaking", he just put his own memories on the record).

Such naked, desperate deflection.

You've got to be kidding me. This man has a serious mental problem. Fucking election has been over for 6 months? Still thinking about the election, that he won!

Well he probably would have let it go if he won without Russia's help and the majority of Americans voted for him.

Cheaters have to tell you that they win so they can convince themselves that they did.

Before the inauguration i was hopeful evidence would be found but as the months roll on.. hopefully its something because if all this Russia stuff amounts to no evidence Trump will be inoculated against any criticism going forward.

At this point, I'm not sure I believe the Russia stuff. I'm getting consistently burned by hope, and if this comes up with nothing, then we just look crazy.

There's several not-so-subtle layers of irony to this tweet, which makes it all the more hilarious.

Firstly, the reason he is bringing up Clinton "collusion" with the DNC is to defend against accusations against him and his campaign possibly colluding with Russia in the 2016 election. Ignoring that colluding with a hostile foreign government to get elected is magnitudes worse than colluding with a political party inside the US to get elected, he almost seems to be excusing working with Russia. "If Clinton wasn't attacked for this, why should I be?!?" Hint: she was, it's probably a big reason why she lost.

Secondly, nearly all of the "evidence" (about half a dozen emails possibly taken out of context) of Clinton-DNC collusion has been provided by Wikileaks and Russia due to a hack made specifically to hurt Clinton's chances and help Trump's. Not only that, but this "evidence" is currently being investigated by the FBI as to whether it was released because of collusion between Russia and the Donald Trump campaign.

So not only is the tweet projection to the max (as is Trump's style), it is made on the basis of emails released by Russia, possibly due to collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia! You can't make this shit up, people.

The DNC was clearly biased towards Clinton *but* I'm pretty certain she would have won anyway, so it's hard for me to get that upset about it compared to various other things from the 2016 cycle

The results of the last election were anything but certain.

Yes. Also to pollute the conversation, hijack the term 'collusion', and so on.

Edit: His tweet only makes me more confident there is evidence of collusion between him and Russia.

Where are the adults in the room? How are the people around him not deeply concerned about his behavior? Why aren't more people resigning? Are Republicans really that willing to turn a blind eye, simply for the opportunity to push some long sought after policy pieces? I feel like we are living in a cartoon.
