President Donald Trump is now claiming that lower gas prices prove that he’s not working for Russia in a tweet that actually proves just how right former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was to call him a “f*cking moron.”
Recent bombshell reports from the New York Times and the Washington Post have revealed that the FBI opened an investigation into Trump based on credible suspicions that he’s a Russian asset and that Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide his talks with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
And he hasn’t exactly denied either report, appearing more enraged about the revelations getting out than about the revelations themselves.
But he didn’t do himself any favors on Monday morning by bragging about lower gas prices and then pathetically using the cheaper gas to claim that he isn’t working for Russia:
“Gas prices drop across the United States because President Trump has deregulated Energy and we are now producing a great deal more oil than ever before.” @foxandfriends But this is bad news for Russia, why would President Trump do such a thing? Thought he worked for Kremlin?

Based on that logic, does that mean former President George W. Bush was a Russian agent since gas prices skyrocketed during his administration?
The fact is that Trump has had nothing to do with lower gas prices. There is simply more supply on the market than there is demand from consumers. That’s how the market works. Also, the fact is that Trump has already done a lot to appease Russia over the last two years, which Twitter users happily reminded him of in their responses to his absurd tweet:
Can you explain why you planned a Trump Tower in Moscow using a sanctioned Russian bank, or why Carter Page went to Moscow to meet with Igor Sechin when that deal fell through, and why Rosneft sold 19% after the Dossier said you would get brokerage fees from a 19% sale?

Your aides are disappointed in you.

Low gas prices also hurts US oil producers. Under $50 a barrel, we lose money.
Don’t try using this as a way to rationalize why you are not a Russian asset.

I don’t know how to break this to you, Racist Uncle President, but at the end of the day Benito Mussolini is not remembered for making the trains run on time

Trump is such a narcissist scumbag. He actually thinks he’s responsible for lower gas prices. The price has actually been the highest in four years, but is now dropping because of market forces. Maybe he’s responsible for the sun rising each day too

From this tweet it is apparent that the President has still not digested any briefings he may have gotten about how NOT to advance Russia’s mission of undermining the credibility of our institutions, including the Presidency.

OPEC has flooded the market. Please give up on your bullshit. It’s becoming monotonous

It should also be pointed out that gas prices have actually risen in most states. Nationally, the average gas price is $2.57 per gallon, which, as it turns out, is one cent more expensive here than in Russia, where the average price is $2.56 per gallon.
Looks like Trump’s “proof” that he’s not a Russian agent just burned him instead.
