Donald Trump has provoked confusion, ridicule and sarcasm from the Twittersphere after tweeting from the G20 that “Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!” The tweet, which was thoroughly debunked, was roundly mocked by Jewish politicos.
“Yes, I’m sure that’s the big talk at G20. Not climate change or trade, but why didn’t John Podesta give a server that wasn’t his to the CIA,” tweeted Representative Adam Schiff.
David Axelrod echoed Schiff’s disbelief: “THAT’s what everyone is talking about?!? Not trade, climate change, refugees, North Korea, Syria …they’re talking about JOHN PODESTA?!?”
Podesta, who apparently realized he was being tweeted about by the president while on a road trip, called Trump a “whack job.” “Dude, get your head in the game,” Podesta tweeted.
At least one vocal Trump support had a more cynical take on Trump’s tweet: “And with one tweet, President Trump gets the entire media talking about John Podesta on the day he meets Putin. Well-played,” tweeted Jack Posobiec, who is not Jewish.
