Trump's twitter screed this morning is complex, subtle, and somewhat intriguing; it seems as though he's trying to thread a needle on the Russia issue: It's a fascinating argument: (1) Russia did meddle, (2) Obama "colluded" or "obstructed" by "doing nothing", (3) Trump himself is as pure as the driven snow (because, ahem, he also did nothing), and (4) Trump should be given an apology (but by whom?). Ignoring the obvious strawman (Obama did nothing? Really???), there's a rather interesting dillema here: Trump says that Obama colluded with the Russians in the election. The Russians were, obviously, trying to help Trump win the election. Therefore, by indicating that the Russians had an effect on the election, Trump is implicitly admitting that the Russians helped him win. Trump is trying to have it both ways. For Obama, doing "nothing" implies collusion. For Trump, doing "nothing" implies a lack of collusion. He's twisted his own argument into a pretzel to argue for both of these conditions at the very same time. It's really an interesting exercise in generating flim-flam, and shows that Trump still has the knack to do it well.
