On Saturday, Trump shocked the world by accusing previous President Obama of wiretapping him. If this is true, we could be on the precipice of one of the most damaging presidential conspiracies since Watergate. In fact, in these fragmented and often psychedelic tweets, Trump compared Obama to Richard Nixon. He also called him a “bad (or sick) guy.”
After making such a scandalous accusation, it was quite indicative how silent the White House became the entire day following that tweet. Even more bizarre was how no one in Trump’s administration provided any evidence that would back up his claims. To this day, Trump’s “source” is unknown.
In the tweet, Donald Trump says “Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’.” The fact that wire tapped is in quotes means that Trump has quotable intel, a.k.a: sources. Our president needs to reveal his sources.
Imagine if Obama hurled similar screwball accusations at Bush Junior. Think of the hysteria that would have erupted in Washington! Trump does it though, and no one raises a single finger.
