Twitter Users Remind Trump What He Previously Said About 5th Amendment

Donald Trump's decision to campaign for the Fifth Amendment on Wednesday in response to questions from the New York Attorney General about his dealings as a real estate mogul left many a Twitter user in awe.
Because the former president is famous for belittling people who invoke their constitutional right to self-incrimination.
For example, there was that time in 2016 when he said at a rally in Iowa, "The mob is embracing the Fifth Amendment. If you are innocent, then why are you accepting the Fifth Amendment?”

This despite taking the Fifth 97 from Ivana during his 1990 divorce proceedings to avoid admitting adultery.
Not surprisingly, many Twitter users found the news that he would use the same amendment he had previously rejected quite amusing.
And they kept bringing up the past.
