On Saturday, CNN’s S.E. Cupp said President Donald Trump is just kidding himself when he says there is “no collusion.”
Earlier today, Trump tweeted out this, claiming no collusion:
That tweet followed an earlier post — widely bashed on Twitter — where Trump claimed the Michael Cohen sentencing documents actually cleared him despite the fact he is the person — identified as Individual -1 — implicated in the documents as directing illegal campaign payments.
The president also told reporters on Saturday, “On the Mueller situation, we’re very happy with what we’re reading because there was no collusion whatsoever. There never has been. The last thing I want is help from Russia on a campaign.”
Cupp, though, wasn’t buying Trump’s self-hype.
With “Trump is publicly faking vindication” flashing on the screen, Cupp noted that “earlier today the president tweeted after two years and millions of pages of documents and a cost of over $30 million, no collusion. He also told reporters, ‘we’re very happy with what we’re reading in the Mueller briefs.'”
She continued on: “Two things. Yes, this investigation could definitely still find evidence of collusion with Russians. It could already be in these very findings. They are heavily redacted. And sure being giddy about no collusion is a little like Al Capone bragging, but see they couldn’t get me for murder when he was convicted for tax fraud. He still went to prison for a long time.”
Then, referring to Trump’s remarks to reporters today, Cupp said this: “Secondly, we’re very happy what we’re reading. Are we reading what I’m reading in particular? The words that accuse you of crimes. Look, Trump is only kidding himself, when you’re the president of the United States and you’ve just been implicated in criminal activity, things are not okay in your world. But hey, hope he enjoyed the Army-Navy game tonight.”
