In yet another early-morning Twitter meltdown, President Mini-Mitts has once again attacked former President Barack Obama. This time it’s about the number of “vicious prisoners” Obama allegedly released from the Guantanamo Bay detention center who have returned to terrorism — and once again, as with the wire-tapping nonsense, Trump is completely wrong.
Trump posted this tweet early Tuesday morning:
But according to Politico this morning, Trump is apparently referring to a September 2016 document from the Director of National Intelligence that reports on the “Summary of the Reengagement of Detainees Formerly Held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.” Here’s a look at the chart that tells the story:
Trump is jumping on the row describing “Confirmed of Reengaging” where the number is indeed listed as 122. The problem is that 113 of those were released “Pre-22 January 2009” which, as any human with a brain larger than a walnut knows, was only 48 hours after Obama took office.
The Independent in the UK has the same analysis.
So once again, we have the impulsive toddler, tweeting about something that isn’t true, and wasting all the grown-ups’ time.
