At long last, the Mueller report is out — and while many are calling for the full report to be revealed, a summary from Attorney General William Barr has been regarded as a victory for Republicans. Barr’s summary noted that Robert Mueller’s investigation found no evidence of collusion against President Trump, though it stopped short of exonerating him.

“While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” Barr’s summary said of Mueller’s findings.
Trump, however, wasted little time in celebrating, erroneously bragging that he’d received a “complete and total exoneration.”
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

His eldest daughter opted for a more subtle response. Ivanka Trump turned to the words of Abraham Lincoln to convey her thoughts.
Truth is generally the best vindication against slander. — Abraham Lincoln

Critics weren’t exactly buying it.
“My lord Ivanka Trump is an insufferable ass.” – also Abe Lincoln.

The Trumps have been fixated with Lincoln as of late. An event hosted at Mar-a-Lago in Florida last weekend reportedly featured desserts decorated with images of the former president wearing a red Make America Great Again hat.

Last night the logo for the GOP fundraiser Trump and Lindsey Graham hosted at Mar-a-Lago was Abraham Lincoln wearing a MAGA hat that said “keep America great.” These people are sick and twisted. Absolutely disgusting. pic.twitter.com/VF68tWxvAR
