Tapped out

Hilarious memes highlight the absolute absurdity of Donald Trump’s wiretapping paranoia

So Donald Trump’s latest conspiracy theory involves President Obama, who Donald says wiretapped the phones at Trump Tower during last year’s presidential campaign because, well, we’re not entirely sure why. Who knows? Who cares? The whole thing, like pretty much everything else Donald tweets, is complete and utter B.S.

The claims were made during an early morning tweetstorm from Donald’s personal account:

A spokesperson for Obama was quick to release a statement saying his administration never spied on private citizens. And pretty much everyone–left, right, liberal, conservative, Democrat, and Republican–has also repudiated Trump’s bogus claims, and here’s why:

In order for Obama to have wiretapped Trump’s phones, a federal judge would have needed to approve a warrant for him to do so, which would mean there would have needed to be probable cause that Trump had committed a federal crime or was a foreign agent.

Yet, Mr. Trump insists it’s absolutely true, going so far as to send poor Sean Spicer out to tell reporters that the White House believes “there’s no question that something happened.”
