Earlier this evening Donald Trump tweeted “We beat Obama 4 years ago” – and it created the widespread impression that Trump has gone so senile, he actually believes he ran against Obama in 2016 and not Hillary Clinton. This led to mocking, derision, and trending topics galore.
Now Trump is frantically trying to cover his tracks by insisting that he simply meant that Obama campaigned for Hillary Clinton four years ago and Trump still won: “Obama worked harder for Hillary Clinton and the losing Clinton Campaign than she worked for herself! Now he’s working with Sleepy Joe – will be same result. MAGA is energized like never before!”
Okay fine. Whatever. Donald Trump might have been trying to say with his initial tweet, the mere fact that he’s having to backtrack like this is a sign of just how many people thinks he’s going senile to begin with.
