Former US Attorney Bharara Hilariously BLASTS Trump Acceptance Of Putin’s Denials


Never cross a crusader

When Preet Bharara was fired by Donald Trump back in March, it was because he refused to resign from his office in the Southern District of New York. Bharara had cultivated a reputation as a bit of a “crusader” as a US Attorney, prosecuting almost 100 cases against Wall Street fatcats. He took on terrorism, corruption, and misdeeds on both sides of the partisan aisle. In other words, he was going to be a target for Trump no matter what.

Since that time, Bharara has been an outspoken critic of the Commander-in-Sheesh, in interviews and on Twitter. Following the events between Trump and Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit, he didn’t hold back, either. After Trump tweeted about discussing election interference with the Russian president, it left jaws on the floor:

From the sound of it, Trump simply accepted Putin’s assertions and was more than ready to put the whole matter behind him. Bharara couldn’t pass up the easy pickings, though:

The sarcastic reply came a little over an hour after Trump’s pair of tweets — and had been “liked” by more than either one of them in short order, despite having less than a tenth as many Twitter followers as Trump.

Full disclosure: One of those “likes” was me.
