President Donald Trump on Monday threw another Twitter tantrum on Monday, falsely claiming that "Democrats" had found no "smocking [sic] gun" proving that he violated campaign finance laws in 2016. George Conway quickly smacked him down.
Last week, the Justice Department suggested that Trump is a felon after court filings revealed he instructed his Cohen to violate campaign finance laws by making hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal, both of whom claim to have had affairs with Trump in the 2000s.

In response, Conway reminded the president that the Justice Department investigating his suspected crimes is run by Republicans and that they have built a "very good case."
"No," Conway tweeted, "the criminal campaign-finance violations were found by professional line prosecutors in a Republican-controlled United States Department of Justice. It looks like a pretty good case. Kudos to them."

Trump's double-typo (he misspelled 'smoking' twice) was heavily mocked.
