Trump crashes and burns when asked to name the specific “crime” he alleges Obama committed

With the full weight of his coronavirus failures hanging around his neck going into the 2020 election, Donald Trump has apparently decided the best way for him to strengthen his reelection chances is to hammer a convoluted conspiracy theory that he has taken to calling “Obamagate.”

As is always the case with his conspiracy theory peddling, Trump is relying on innuendos rather than facts, tossing out vague assertions, and employing generally nonsensical logic to muddy the waters of our political discourse.

Trump wants the American people to believe that Obama illicitly deployed the power of the federal government in an attempt to steal the 2016 election from Trump. The reality is that the FBI felt a need to investigate the Trump campaign because of its numerous shady connections to Russian operatives.  There is no scandal, despite how badly Trump needs there to be.

Add your name to reject Trump & Republicans’ vile idea of sacrificing seniors’ lives to save the stock market!

During a press conference today, Trump was asked about his weekend tweet accusing Obama of committing the “biggest political crime in American history, by far!”

“What crime exactly are you accusing President Obama of committing and do you think the Justice Department should prosecute him?” asked the journalist.

“Uh, Obamagate,” Trump responded. “It’s been going on for a long time. It’s been going on from before I even got elected. And it’s a disgrace that it happened and if you look at what’s gone on and if you look at now all of this information that’s being released. And from what I understand that’s only the beginning.”

“Some terrible things happened and it should never be allowed to happen in our country again,” he went on, failing to name specifics. “And you’ll be seeing what’s going on over the coming weeks and I wish you’d write honestly about it but unfortunately you choose not to do so,” Trump said, before trying to move on to a new question.

“What is the crime exactly that you’re accusing him of?” the reporter interjected, pushing for a concrete answer.

“You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers, except yours,” Trump responded, seemingly incapable of conjuring up even a moderately plausible answer.

Of course, the reason why Donald Trump is unable to name the specific crime he alleges Obama committed is because Obama didn’t actually commit a crime. This entire Obamagate narrative is a transparent conservative smear job, a pathetic attempt to drum up controversy and pull the spotlight away from Trump’s pandemic failures.

Like so many other things when it comes to President Trump, “Obamagate” is nothing but hot air. Even the most cursory of scrutiny deflates the entire thing.

Right-wing hack Benny Johnson shared the clip on Twitter, apparently taking delight in the fact that the leader of his party is an incoherent old paranoiac.
