Trump Mocks Clinton For Not Knowing Something He Doesn’t Know Himself

The presidential nominee criticized his Democratic rival with a dramatic tweet that turned out to be highly inaccurate. Surprise, surprise.

As has become the norm this election season, Donald Trump continues to speak about things he does not understand.

Following his apparent motto of “Tweet first, think later,” the Republican presidential nominee posted a dramatic social media post to criticize his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, over her ongoing email scandal.


The Clinton campaign, according to the latest FBI reports, has maintained that the former secretary of state “could not recall any briefing or training by State related to the retention of federal records or handling classified information.” Clinton also told the bureau she was unaware that “the ‘C’ markings in certain emails denoted the presence of confidential information.”

While the Democratic candidate’s response looks a little skeptical, it appears Trump does not know what the “C” stands for either.

Fortunately, John Noonan, a national security adviser to former presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney, saw the tweet and decided to correct the billionaire business mogul.


“C” markings on official documents do not symbolize “classified,” they actually denote a lower security status: “Confidential.”

Other online users also pitched in:





Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, tweeted this in apparent hopes to tighten up Trump’s message to some extent.


The GOP hopeful also taunted Clinton over the part of the report that said a former Bill Clinton aide reportedly destroyed old State Department devices with a hammer at least twice. The documents also revealed another IT aide used a software tool called “BleachBit” to delete emails on the former first lady's server.


Trump has not followed up on Noonan's tweet (or everyone else’s, for that matter) as of yet.
