John Podesta Fires Back At Trump’s Accusations On Twitter

John Podesta

Trump threw the media another red herring the day he’s all over the news schmoozing up to Putin at the 2017 G20 Hamburg summit–just three days after Independence Day, making it even more cringeworthy. Trump’s tweet about John Podesta is clearly meant to distract America, but John Podesta himself isn’t having it, firing back with a twitterstorm.

Trump’s red herring tweet:

“Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!”

We already elaborated about why Trump is way off base with his tweet: “Podesta wasn’t running the DNC… Oh, and the DNC did cooperate.”

Even though Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, in on a cross-country road trip with his wife, he was compelled to respond to Trump’s accusations:

His first response:

“3/ Get a grip man, the Russians committed a crime when they stole my emails to help get you elected President.”

Trump still hasn’t made any mention about confronting Putin over his attack on our elections:

“4/ Maybe you might try to find a way to mention that to President Putin.”

Podesta sets the record straight:

“5/ BTW, I had nothing to do with the DNC.”

Podesta knows that Trump’s tantrums can go on and on…

“6/ God only knows what you’ll be raving about on twitter by the time we get to Utah.”

Finally, he says what we’re all thinking about. It’s devestating to have a president who would rather spread distracting misinformation at a time when he’s finally meeting with Putin (in the open).

“7/7 Dude, get your head in the game. You’re representing the US at the G20.”

Today is a day that will be talked about for a long long time. To put it in perspective, a quote from Sociologist, author, speaker, pundit, Dr. DaShanne Stokes‏.

“Three days after Independence Day, Trump shook hands with the man who attacked our independence. That says it all.”
