Writer Nick Pappas has published a brilliant copy of Michael Flynn’s resignation letter on Twitter that eliminates all of its pro-Trump lies. The disgraced former General Flynn has been forced to resign as Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser after his treasonous phone calls with Russian officials became public. It increasingly seems like Flynn was talking to Russians about sanctions that former president Barack Obama imposed after Russia interfered in the American election – while Obama was still president. This a big security threat and highly illegal.
Of course Flynn used his resignation letter as a last ditch attempt to make himself and the Trump Administration look good. Pappas went through and amended the letter to cut through Flynn’s deception:
The edits are hilarious, but also scary because they do seem like the real truth of the situation rather than the “alternative facts” that the Trump team keeps pushing. We have to continue taking back the narrative from Trump’s White House and shouting the truth over their constant lies.
