Media Twitter Eviscerates Trump’s ‘Sad’ Try at Damage Control: ‘He Literally Said the Exact Opposite’

As President Donald Trump engaged in damage control after publicly doubting U.S. intelligence, reporters were amazed by his excuse that he simply forgot the “not” when he said that he didn’t see why Russia would have meddled in the 2016 election. Now, he says he meant to say “wouldn’t,” making a double negative.

However, that explanation was met with collective shock and even laughter from the media, who took to Twitter to condemn the president’s backpedaling, some finding it downright bizarre.

Check out the reactions here:
