WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 3

Today Trump Railed Against ‘Pathetic’ Critics, Forgetting When He Celebrated ‘Finally’ Being One

In a commencement speech given earlier today at Liberty University, Donald Trump said, “The future belongs to the dreamers, not the critics.”

He was really hard on critics, actually, and even called them “pathetic.” That’s was quite the deviation from, well, this:

“Finally,” he wrote in 2012, Twitter gave him the platform to be a “critic.” Looks like he’d wanted to be one for some time. (He did go on to use his Twitter account to be a critic of Barack Obama through his presidency, so never say that dreams don’t come true!)

Naturally, people are already pointing out the dissonance:

Between Trump, Sean Spicer, and Katrina Pierson, you’d think the White House would have found a way to mass delete old tweets by now to avoid this sort of contradiction.
