Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland made a lot of people laugh, albeit not intentionally, with this criticism of President Trump:
"Never before has a U.S. president so clearly ignored such a grave threat, and a growing threat, to U.S. national security," Democrat Sen. Cardin asserts while discussing new report on deterring Russian interference in upcoming US midterm election. https://t.co/E50v4arZdW pic.twitter.com/YLo3JDJzTe

Also wasn’t it the previous president who mocked Mitt Romney by reminding him that “the 80s called” in regards to the then-GOP nominee’s warnings about Russia? Yes it was!

I seem to remember Pres Obama scoffing and downplaying @MittRomney 's warning about Russia

"The 80s called, and it wants its foreign policy back." https://t.co/jxK3SA2YhX

We will have more flexibility on this after the election. https://t.co/nWQ6fl7ezq

“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
"This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility."
I mean come on, Ben… https://t.co/aFtSO08gsX

If only somebody had warned us! Certainly they wouldn't be met with mockery! https://t.co/QjRYWLPWHM

Cardin’s self-awareness was unavailable for comment because it’s hopelessly lost.

Also, accusations of “ignoring national security threats” are head-scratchers coming from supporters of the previous administration that blamed climate change for terrorism and sent a huge #PalletOfCash to a nation the State Department considers the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world.
