Trump's weaponized whataboutism

President Trump thinks lots of people should be investigated for wrongdoing. Just not him.

Hillary Clinton above all. More than a year after she lost the presidential election, she’s still Trump’s favorite target — a rhetorical security blanket he returns to, over and over.

“Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary and the Dems,” the president tweeted last month.

But Clinton has plenty of company, beginning with her husband, Bill Clinton, her former campaign manager, John Podesta, former President Obama and almost everyone else in the Democratic Party.
