During a row contention on the ongoing review into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, a CNN authorised researcher pronounced Donald Trump Jr. was not assisting his case in any way, figure or form by posting “come at me!” at special warn Robert Mueller’s investigators.
Earlier in the week, Trump Jr. took to Instagram to write “More zero burgers from the media and others desperately trying to create a fake narrative. Keep coming at me guys!!!” which CNN researcher Paul Callan compared to “going to the zoo with a beef in your hand.”
“Hopefully he’s articulate to us and not to the feds, since that would be, by definition, crazy talk,” New Day host Chris Cuomo began after reading the president’s son’s comments on-air.
“It is positively crazy, Callan agreed. “It’s like going to the zoo with a beef in your palm and walking into the tiger’s cage. He’s saying, ‘come on, bring it on, feds.’ It is the Twitter truth of rapist invulnerability which is: insult the prosecutor and maybe you will shock him into subsidy off.”
“That doesn’t work with a special prosecutor, they are seasoned professionals,” Callan explained. “All he is doing is making his own conditions worse. we have never seen somebody honestly do this in a critical rapist case, to say: ‘bring it on, boys.’ With the feds there are so many offenses that somebody can be charged with that the feds can bring up. Any sovereign form you ever filled out inaccurately is a intensity sovereign crime, any oversight is a crime. It is ridiculous to taunt the tiger as Don Jr. does.”
