Terrified Trump gets mocked for gaslighting about 'high crimes and misdemeanors'

Four days after the release of Attorney General William Barr's redacted version of the Mueller report President Donald Trump is both claiming it exonerates him while attacking Mueller's team and the report.

And now he's gaslighting Americans about the meaning of "high crimes and misdemeanors," and what acts rise to the level of impeachable offenses.

Article Two of the United States Constitution clearly states:

"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

The Constitution does not define bribery, or "high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

And the Mueller report in no way exonerated him, certainly not from obstruction – as much as he claims it did.

Meanwhile, if Democrats committed crimes, why is the Dept. of Justice not investigating and prosecuting those "crimes"?

On social media, Trump's tweet garnered a good deal of mockery – and attempts to educate the President on impeachment:
