The president’s shortening of words was clearly in reference to his mantra that he did not obstruct justice or collude with Russia in the wake of the release of the highly-anticipated report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The report said Mueller’s team could not establish that Trump’s campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 election, but also listed a number of instances where it appears that the president tried to curtail the investigation.
“Weirdo Tom Steyer, who didn’t have the ‘guts’ or money to run for President, is still trying to remain relevant by putting himself on ads begging for impeachment. He doesn’t mention the fact that mine is perhaps the most successful first 2 year presidency in history & NO C OR O!” he wrote on Twitter.

The president’s tweet is just the latest in a number he’s sent out defending himself since the Mueller report was released, but the “no C or O” portion of it did catch the eye of some people on Twitter.

NO C OR O? I give up— Roderick Lowe (@rockque2) April 26, 2019
I was just digesting “weirdo” when he comes up with “NO C OR O!”— John Michlig (@SprawledOut) April 26, 2019

The sad part is I knew what “NO C OR O” meant. https://t.co/nHsI8hC8fA— Michael (@MichaelT162) April 26, 2019
This isn’t the first time Trump has shortened “obstruction” in a tweet. In May of last year, the president wrote “there is no O” in reference to obstruction of justice, which quickly turned into people online cracking sex jokes.
