‘Troll game strong’: The internet can’t stop laughing at Mueller’s heavily-redacted sentencing memo

Published

It took very little time for Twitter to begin cracking jokes and making memes about special counsel Robert Mueller’s heavy redaction on his sentencing memo for former senior Trump aide Michael Flynn.

Though some information is clear in the memo — including that Mueller suggests no prison time for Flynn but believes “senior government leaders should be held to the highest standard” — not much can be gleaned from it.

Lots of people pointed out what the memo left out — and some made jokes about it.

“21 USC §§331, 333, 343 & 21 CFR §133.113(a)(3) make it a federal crime for a cheesemaker to sell cheddar cheese unless the curd was matted into a cohesive mass,” an account called “A Crime A Day” tweeted. They then added that “lots of other stuff was redacted from the Flynn memo, too.”

Others still turned the redaction into a joke of its own.

“Girl, are you a heavily redacted document? Because I just can’t read you,” Washington Post data reporter Christopher Ingraham tweeted.

Adam Schiff moves to implicate Pence in the Ukraine scandal as Republicans go off the rails

Published

on

In the panoply of contradictory and incoherent defenses of Donald Trump, a favorite of Republicans has been to harp on the claim that witnesses to Trump's extortion scheme against Ukraine were all "second-hand" or "third-hand." This has always been confounding, as the official summary readout of the famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump clearly conditioning military aid and U.S. support on Zelensky giving a public boost to Trump's conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders.
