Nunes And Trump Humiliated Again As #YoMemoJokes Rocks Twitter

Reprinted with permission from Shareblue.

As Donald Trump took to Twitter to try to convince Americans that the GOP’s overhyped memo was not as much of a failure as it appeared to be, Twitter users were busy elsewhere — tweeting jokes about the memo under the hashtag #YoMemoJokes.

The hashtag, a clever play on words, was pushed to the top trending hashtag nationwide overnight. As of 10:30 Saturday morning, it was still trending in the #2 spot nationwide.

Clearly, Twitter users were not impressed by the memo, which was written by Trump stooge Devin Nunes and released by the White House on Friday — and they weren’t about to let it go unnoticed.

As Twitter users were busy turning the memo into fodder for jokes, Trump was desperately trying to salvage the memo — to no avail.

In a tweet Saturday morning, Trump claimed the memo “totally vindicates ‘Trump’ in probe.” Unfortunately for Trump, no one noticed his tweet because they were too busy writing jokes about his phony memo.

Among the crimes charged against McGonigal in two lengthy federal indictments is a secret financial relationship with Oleg Deripaska — a Russian oligarch close to dictator Vladimir Putin and associated with Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager, himself convicted of crimes and pardoned.

During his FBI career, McGonigal oversaw investigations of Deripaska and other oligarchs suspected of various crimes, including espionage. Now the exposure of his illegal connection with Deripaska may provide fresh insights into Trump's tainted victory.
