Internet Rains Alanis Morissette Jokes on Trump After He Prefaces Mueller-Bashing Tweet with 'Isn't It Ironic?'
President Donald Trump was deluged in mockery after tweeting how “ironic” it was that he was under investigation for Russia collusion while also undertaking presidential tasks.
The president started Thursday morning griping again that the special counsel investigation was a “witch hunt” that was distracting from his duties, which he for some reason found “ironic.”
Isn’t it Ironic? Getting ready to go to the G-7 in Canada to fight for our country on Trade (we have the worst trade deals ever made), then off to Singapore to meet with North Korea & the Nuclear Problem...But back home we still have the 13 Angry Democrats pushing the Witch Hunt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 7, 2018
Other Twitter users were reminded of Alanis Morissette’s 1995 hit, “Ironic”:
