White House says Trump stands by claim Obama wiretapped him

If you mean that Obama could have checked on whether or not he authorized the alleged wire tapping, why would he have done so?

The question is what are the results of any investigation Trump has authorized into this? So far, it doesn't seem like it's turned up anything.

As for golfing, Trump is already way ahead of where Obama was in hours spent on the golf course 8 weeks into their respective terms. You really don't want to bring up time spent on the golf course if you're looking to defend Trump's Presidential work ethic.

Cannot defend anything Trump does. But the more time he spends on the golf course, the less time he can tweet stupid things.

Everyone is pointing out that Trump Tower was not wiretapped.  Nobody, especially not Trump, is asking if the Russian Ambassador was being wiretapped!  Calls from Trump's campaign could easily have been intercepted and recorded if they were made TO someone else who was under surveillance, like the Russian Ambassador or Alfa Bank.

Good point.  But many are looking into the Russian connection.  A lot going on there.  And we know either Flynn was wiretapped or the Russian Ambassador as that conversation was noted previously. 

 

Everybody has said that some of Trump's campaign staff could have been part of some surveillance.  Remember, Manafort quit the campaign due to his relations there.

 

Trump specifically called out Obama for wiretapping Trump Towers.  Which has been proven untrue.  And he said some nasty and vile stuff about Obama.  100% unacceptable.

This is worth watching.  They say they admit some surveillance may have happened against some Trump associates as part of the Russian hacking scandal.  But even the top Republican has admitted they have Zero evidence.  This top Republican supported Trump during the elections.

 

It's absolutely insane.  Watch this:

Trump doesn't seem to be mentally stable.  Sad a person like Spicer doesn't just quit.  Zero morals.

I was going to watch it, then I noticed it was a link to CNN.

Too bad you missed it.  Has nothing to do with CNN. It's just a shot from the press room showing the insane Spicer.  CNN is doing a great job of holding the administration's feet to the fire.

 Can you prove to me you don't have a sister? same with the wire tapings,

can any one prove Obama didn't wire tap Trump? proving the negative is

 hard and impossible to do and this is why Trump is getting everyone running

around like a headless chickens,,, I wish he'd  do far less twitting though....

Twitting hits the nail on the head as he is a twit and far worse. It's a  matter of great concern that a man with that much power is totally out of touch with reality, he lives, and 'works' in la la land.

 

I've never wished anyone dead, but I reckon I would breathe a sigh of relief if a LHW took him out, and Pence too, who has to be as big a fruitcake as to support this loony.

Watch out, watch out.

 

Trump makes a huge noise and drama out of nothing that rolls on for days and weeks, taking up all the front pages. What is going on in the background that he doesn't want talked about? What are Jared and Eric up to? Selling buildings to the Chinese at strangely inflated prices that the Chinese seem happy to pay. What else is going on?

 

This is classic Trump. Distract, distract, distract through artificially created drama whilst keeping the dirty deals out of the limelight.

This is all just insane and the interview with Carlson Tucker and Trump on Fox was simply the ramblings of a madman.

 

Regarding the wire tapping - just the start!

 

Quote

TRUMP:  Well, I've been reading about things.  I read in, I think it was January 20 a "New York Times" article where they were talking about wiretapping.  There was an article, I think they used that exact term.  I read other things.  I watched your friend Bret Baier the day previous where he was talking about certain very complex sets of things happening, and wiretapping.  I said, wait a minute, there's a lot of wiretapping being talked about.  I've been seeing a lot of things.

Now, for the most part, I'm not going to discuss it, because we have it before the committee and we will be submitting things before the committee very soon that hasn't been submitted as of yet.  But it's potentially a very serious situation.

 

CARLSON:  So, 51,000 people retweeted that.  So a lot of people thought that was plausible, they believe you, you're the President -- you're in charge of the agencies.  Every intelligence agency reports to you.  Why not immediately go to them and gather evidence to support that?

 

TRUMP:  Because I don't want to do anything that's going to violate any strength of an agency.  We have enough problems

Read the transcript here, you have to scroll down a bit for the wire tapping insanity, but the rest of the interview is just as insane. WHEN will they impeach this buffoon?

If you took out the name Trump and just read this as any old interview, you would conclude quickly that the person being interviewed had mental problems.

You don't have to look far to work out why Trump hates Obama

........and the Circus keeps performing.   Well there is one thing, I get a good laugh when I read about it all......I wonder when the US are going to get a president rather than a little school boy who keeps throwing tantrums because he is top of the class.  

When I, as a non american was being force fed it everyday on the news, I thought he might do some good....now I am starting to thing maybe the US is going from world leader to world comedy act :coffee1:

Now saying it was the British GCHQ who bugged him... :cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

 

What next??? The Irish Government sent in leprechauns to plant bugs...

 

What worries me the he has access to state secrets and will just spout anything out on Twitter or of the cuff during a press conference or TV interview, he is a bigger liability than Edward Snowden.
