In a bizarre retweet of a Federalist editor's claim that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been ignoring "the Russian collusion hoax," Donald Trump professed his love for the Senate majority leader and said it was true and could cost him the Senate in November.
According to Sean Davis, "Mitch McConnell has spent years pretending as though the Russian collusion hoax never happened. If he thinks he's going to keep the Senate majority and confirm more judges without addressing the hoax and holding the hoaxers accountable, he's lost his mind," to which Trump added, "Mitch, I love you, but this is 100% true. Time is running out. Get tough and move quickly, or it will be too late. The Dems are vicious, but got caught. They MUST pay a big price for what they have done to our Country. Don’t let them get away with this!" while also tagging Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Twitter commenters seemed to be taken aback by Trump's out of character tweet -- as you can see below:
