After reports surfaced that Rep. Elijah Cummings’s (D-MD) house in Baltimore was broken into┬áhours before President Trump started attacking him on Twitter, the tweeter-in-chief posted a bizarrely cryptic tweet on Friday that, at face value, appeared to mock the lawmaker.

Parse for yourself below:

On Friday, Cummings issued a statement spelling out the details of the break-in and clarifying that the intruder wasn’t able to gain entry into his home.
