Yesterday morning, tweeting about the Buzzfeed “bombshell” about Trump, Dan Rather noted that the walls appeared to be closing in on Trump:
If true, the Buzzfeed story is a political earthquake. Caution: we really know little; Mueller knows much. Time to be steady, let facts lead us to truth. But at almost every turn in this national nightmare, implausible has become plausable. The walls do appear to be closing in.

However, after the statement from Mueller’s office refuting the Buzzfeed story, Rather encouraged to media to proceed with caution less than 12 hours later:
Special Counsel has issued a statement disputing Buzzfeed report- a sober reminder of how much we have yet to learn. All who care about the Constitution should let facts dictate conclusions. And remember there will be political as well as legal judgement for this Administration.

Excuse us for a minute…
OK, we’re back. Rather, as he tends to do, sent a whole lot of eyes rolling with his tweet(s):
Behold: The Godfather of Fake News lecturing #BuzzFakeNews about letting "facts dictate conclusions."
Sit down, Gunga Dan. https://t.co/vtDQMlLcmw

The total lack of self-awareness it takes for this completely discredited hack to comment on a #FakeNews story
Is gobsmacking https://t.co/meoiv9RKFk

Personally I feel the Buzzfeed report is — if I may coin a phrase — fake but accurate. https://t.co/RnrjHdudsx

Another Rather tweet worthy of hanging on the wall:
Just frame this one. https://t.co/r2BTgYvJYf
