Good luck, Chuck!
Donald Trump is getting REALLY frustrated over the persisting reports about his ties to Russia.
So much, he reported his own “FAKE NEWS” about one of his most vocal Senate opposers — but just ended up looking like a big ol’ idiot!
The President mocked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday, tweeting a decade-old picture of the New York senator eating a Krispy Kreme donut with Vladimir Putin:
This shady tweet was in response to the ever-growing reports of the Russian President’s connections to the White House — and, lest Attorney General Jeff Sessions forget, the very real investigation over Russia’s influence on the election.
But Trump’s attempt at turning the tables on the Democrat backfired when Schumer responded by “happily” explaining the meeting, which occurred in 2003 when the first Lukoil gas station opened in New York State.
Urging Trump’s administration to be as equally transparent amid the FBI’s investigation, Schumer responded:
Happily talk re: my contact w Mr. Putin & his associates, took place in ’03 in full view of press & public under oath. Would you &your team? https://t.co/yXgw3U8tmQ

Awww, and POTUS thought he was so clever with that donut pic!
We have a feeling Trump won’t be responding to this one, since his team is about as transparent as a golden border wall.
