Trump tweeted this morning, which is not news. The news is that he straight up admitted in one of his Mueller investigations tweets that Russia did, in fact, help him get elected. He claims he had nothing to do with them helping to get him elected, but that still means that they helped him get elected.

Major news outlets are calling this an “extraordinary admission” from the president. Up until now, he’s avoided speaking this truth, even though multiple U.S. intelligence agencies came to this conclusion in 2017. Instead, he’s railed against Democrats and others concerned about a hostile foreign nation interfering in our elections, accusing them of being obsessed with the issue he tweets about on a near-daily basis.

Of course, less than an hour later, he left the White House to head to Colorado Springs to deliver the commencement speech at the local Air Force Academy. Reporters tried asking him about the apparent admission in his tweet, but he brushed them off by directly contradicting himself.

“No, Russia did not help me get elected,” he said. “I got me elected.”

Speaking of Jan, people are also making fun of Trump’s “Russia, Russia, Russia” whining by comparing him to Jan Brady’s “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!” It got to the point that Jan Brady was trending on Twitter, alarming Eve Plumb fans.

The rest of us are busy hitting Trump over his admission-retraction mess.

How will Fox News spin this one?
