Responding to another of the Trump administration’s stumbles, California Democrat Ted Lieu’s savage Twitter takedown has the internet in tears of laughter.

And now other Congressmembers are joining in.

National Security Adviser John Bolton appeared at a White House press briefing to discuss the unrest in Venezuela and the administration’s planned response. But Bolton’s legal pad is what drew the most attention.

Bolton’s pad had handwritten notes on it and was in full view of the reporters. Written on the front page was “5,000 troops to Colombia,” raising questions on whether Trump planned to dispatch troops to the South American country.

Democrats like Lieu, and Representatives Gregory Meeks (NY) and Gay Scanlon (PA) quickly pilloried the latest administration gaffe with potential international repercussions. They started writing their own messages on legal pads and taking photos.

But Lieu, one of the wittiest members of Congress, completely stole the show with his on-point legal pad jab: “5,000 documents subpoenaed by House Judiciary.”
