Funny Or Die has released a video (see below) showing former President Barack Obama himself declaring that, when in office, he wiretapped current President Donald Trump. Trump recently accused Obama of wiretapping his campaign and transition on Twitter. He has yet to back up the claim with any evidence.
As Funny Or Die has proven, however, you can see video footage of Obama admitting to the alleged wiretap if you splice dozens of videos together, constructing entire sentences word by word. Obama even confesses to enjoying wires so much that he loves the HBO TV series “The Wire” and watches it every night.
So far this is the most compelling reason to think that Obama actually engaged in any unseemly espionage regarding Trump.
Maybe Trump wanted the media to consider whether the Obama Administration resembled an evil police state apparatus. Instead, the media has been considering the possibility of intelligence agencies obtaining probably cause warrants to monitor Trump and his aides’ communications.
The same two options have haunted Trump since his candidacy: either Trump is a liar, or Trump is a criminal. The wiretap case is just another example of this.
