Election 2020

Trump Humiliated for Pretending He’s Been ‘Exonerated’ by Georgia Grand Jury When He’s Been Anything But

Trump is receiving plenty of heat on social media after he took to Truth Social to claim he had received a “total exoneration” from a Georgia Grand Jury that’s investigating his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state, The Independent reports.

“Thank you to the Special Grand Jury in the Great State of Georgia for your Patriotism & Courage. Total exoneration. The USA is very proud of you!!” Trump posted Thursday.

“The long awaited important sections of the Georgia report, which do not even mention President Trump’s name, have nothing to do with the President because President Trump did absolutely nothing wrong,” he wrote. “The President participated in two perfect phone calls regarding election integrity in Georgia, which he is entitled to do — in fact, as President, it was President Trump’s Constitutional duty to ensure election safety, security, and integrity.”

Boy, he can sure lay it on thick, can’t he? Well in the next paragraph, he laid it on even heavier.

“Between the two calls, there were many officials and attorneys on the line, including the Secretary of State of Georgia, and no one objected, even slightly protested, or hung up,” he claimed. “President Trump will always keep fighting for true and honest elections in America!”

Now, of course, plenty of his followers might fall for that, but how stupid does he think the rest of us are?

Fortunately, plenty of Twitter users saw through this and raked him over the coals for it.

“As dumb as he is, even he knows this is BS. But he is cunning enough to know the cultists will buy it,” wrote lawyer and former federal prosecutor Ron Filipkowski.

“Wow, I am floored over and over again on the ignorance of people,” wrote Bonnie Christopher. “And the manipulation is beyond me … no where does the grand jury say he is innocent.”

Most of those responding on Twitter were well aware that Trump was merely pulling a snow job.

“Here’s the thing. Trump doesn’t care about winning. He already knows he’s a loser. He just needs people to ‘think’ he’s da boss. It’s why he always lies. So, ‘Not going to jail right now’ puts him in his ‘happy enough’ place. He’s thinking like every small-time loser,” wrote Nathan Standing.

“Georgia Grand Jury says looks like members of Trump’s inner circle committed perjury. And Trump’s claim of voter fraud was non existent. Trump claims he was totally exonerated. As always Trump is full of s***, wrote actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner.

And CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen added that the Grand Jury report states “we find by an unanimous vote that no widespread fraud took place in Georgia in 2020 presidential election that could result in overturning the election.”

“The GA special grand jury has spoken–that means Trump committed crimes. He’s gonna get indicted,” Eisen concluded.

And the hits just kept on coming.

“Lies and chaos. It’s the MAGA brand,” the Lincoln Project noted in reacting to the news that witnesses in the investigation probe may have lied.

Some replies were noticeably tongue-in-cheek.

“Fact Check: Trump must have misread the report ‘We set forth  for the Court our recommendations on indictments and relevant statutes.’ The rest was redacted. It appears indictments recommendations are coming from Georgia Grand Jury,” Jonathan Ford said in response to Trump’s ‘ “exoneration” claim.

And Law & Crime’s Adam Klasfeld observed that Trump’s statement celebrated “the fact that the released portions of the Georgia special grand jury report — which recommended indictments and was specifically redacted to omit all names — didn’t mention him once.”

Maybe Trump just believes that if you lie about something often enough it becomes true. Or maybe he’s told himself so many lies that over time he’s come to believe them. Either way, he knows his supporters are dumb enough to swallow this hook, line, and sinker.
