Trump’s Russian income is not being mocked at all. With few exceptions.
Ah yes, with few exceptions, all of us are perfect angels, including Donald Trump.
On Friday morning, Trump’s lawyer released a statement claiming that Donald Trump’s taxes (which he has not released) show that he’s received no income of any type from Russian sources over the past decade. “With few exceptions.”
BREAKING: Trump lawyer: Tax returns from past 10 years show no “income of any type from Russian sources,” with few exceptions.

AKA, with some exceptions, AKA the first statement is not fully true. AKA if this was geometry your teacher would look at the paper, then up at you, then back at the paper, sigh, and put a big red X on it. But that’s with the high moral standing of 10th grade geometry, not the presidency.
People couldn’t help but notice how absurd this was, and immediately started to point out the fallacy of it on Twitter with #WithFewExceptions.
It’s real good.
Side note, What do you think Trump thinks of Harry Styles’ new album? Would like to know.
Naturally, there were some double whammies of Trump criticism.
Ok, but this one’s true:
Nobody is safe.
Spiderman 3 deserves to be dragged into this.
Ah, plain and simple.
Frederick Douglass, you heard of that guy? Doing great things.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be a trending topic without some #BRANDS weighing in.
Oo, and self aware brands at that! The mark of a truly lasting trend. With few exceptions, surely.
