The release of the Mueller report and news of no new indictments coming from an investigation that the anti-Trump Resistance had pinned to many hopes on has already caused a massive rise in the number of tweets and comments that haven’t aged well. Included among those comments, Brit Hume spotted this from Bill Kristol in December of last year:
This held up well. https://t.co/mJPjBYLk33

Kristol insisted his comments have aged like a fine wine:
This held up fine. Trump tried repeatedly to shut down and impede the Russia investigation. I’m proud if my friends and I played even a small part in helping thwart his efforts and those of his allies, and in protecting the investigation and ensuring the integrity of the report. https://t.co/9fdg0idd3B

Suffice to say, many disagree:
Oh my, you are really going to take credit for you and your friends "stopping" something that wasn't going to happen? Are there other non-events that you stopped that we should know about?

Dude. Really? You’ve just had your a$$ handed to you. Show some humility. Regroup. Admit you’re a tool, & go to work for @CNN

“Eye of the beholder” and all that.
