Trump Claims Lower Gas Prices Prove He’s Not A Russian Asset

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:

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:

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.
