Franken: It Will Take More than a Synonym to Save Trump

“It wasn’t that long ago that nearly every Trump tweet included a NO COLLUSION! But those have become few and far between since Giuliani came up with ‘collusion isn’t a crime.’ The thing is, collusion IS a crime, if you collude with somebody to break a law. That’s called ‘conspiracy’… You can’t get out of a crime by finding a synonym. … If that were the case, all any criminal defense lawyer would need is a thesaurus… This is the kind of insult to everyone’s intelligence that Trump specializes in.”
