Donald Trump again cried “WITCH HUNT!” on Twitter on Tuesday, apparently referring to Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the president’s 2016 campaign and Russian efforts to interfere in the election.
A witch hunt is when a movement fueled by prejudice and bereft of material evidence results in bloodlust. Your use of the term here is incorrect. A better example might be if, say, you tried to convince the world that a sitting president wasn’t American simply because he’s black.
This witch hunt sure is catching a lot of witches.

I hope witches are actually hunting him.

Is this a witch hunt? No. Am I a witch currently using witchcraft to actively hunt the President? Yes.

19 indictments. 7 guilty pleas. So far.
I’m starting to think that Trump doesn’t really understand the meaning of the phrase “witch hunt.”

He’s got 99 problems and witches ain’t one.

It’s not a witch hunt, it’s a traitor hunt and Mueller is getting closer all the time. Resign and move to Russia, if Putin will have you.
