'Benghazi' Trends #1 on Twitter After Trump Claims Republicans Never Investigated Obama


by Caleb Ecarma | Feb 7th, 2019, 8:57 am

The word “Benghazi” became the number one trend on Twitter after President Donald Trump claimed Republicans “never” investigated former President Barack Obama during his tenure at the White House.

“Unlimited Presidential Harassment… The Dems and their committees are going ‘nuts,'” Trump tweeted, days after giving a State of the Union address where he decried “ridiculous partisan investigations,” which he claims are hampering America’s “peace and legislation.”

“The Republicans never did this to President Obama, there would be no time left to run government,” he added. “I hear other committee heads will do the same thing. Even stealing people who work at White House! A continuation of Witch Hunt!”

The president’s outrageous claim was quickly fact-checked by members of the media on Twitter. Some rebutted Trump’s tweet by simply mentioning Benghazi, while others brought up the Obama administration’s IRS and Fast and Furious investigations.

Check out a few of the best responses below:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!

5. my contribution to that


?s=19

Text of my response - though I forgot to use nothing"berder" instead of nothingburger:

The GOP had 8 Nothingburger investigations into Benghazi. 6 Nothingburger investigations into Vince Foster and even investigated Socks the Cat. Republicans have made presidential harassment their core operating priority.

7. Why are people still talking about all this?

Other than maybe a psychopathic need to be angry about something all the time?
