A former White House cabinet secretary was bragging on Twitter about the fact that he never needed a lawyer when he worked under former President Obama.
Chris Lu’s Friday tweet reads: “I served 4 years in the Obama White House. I never hired a lawyer, and I don’t know anyone who did. Just thought I’d point that out.”

Lu’s jab is aimed at President Trump and some of his senior administration officials, who have hired outside attorneys as the special counsel and congressional probes into allegations of Russia meddling continue.
Twitter responses to Lu’s tweet were mostly supportive of his narrative, with one user suggesting President Trump’s “whiteness” is protecting him.
But his whiteness protects him from [insert literally anything here]

Another user suggested there might be another reason Obama staffers never lawyered up, writing: “Of course not! Everyone was breaking the law! Obama & Lynch allowed & encouraged it!”

Our very own DML responded to this report by saying, “Quote me as saying this… it is important to point out the Republicans and Fox News never went on a witch hunt against President Obama. So lets keep things in perspective Mr. Lu.”
