Everyone with a functioning brain knew Donald was lying about Obama wiretapping Trump Tower. Only the most shameless righties pretended that it was a smart move by Donald. It wasn't.

His lie was a sad attempt to distract the media from the fact that Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia stuff. By all accounts, tiny hands Donald was furious that the news cycle had turned on him after a day of praise for his teleprompter speech before Congress...

At this point, I'm beginning to wonder. after all, a delusion is not a lie.

Though having someone with paranoid delusions in charge of the nuclear codes while he milks the government for money doesn't help.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

His wiretapping allegations are spiraling out of control, and now have become an international incident.

Quote: CNN
The White House has apologized to the British government after alleging that a UK intelligence agency spied on President Donald Trump at the behest of former President Barack Obama

National security adviser H.R. McMaster spoke with his British counterpart on Thursday about press secretary Sean Spicer's comment from the White House podium about a Fox News report that said British intelligence helped wiretap Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign, a White House official said Friday.
...
A senior administration official told CNN that Spicer and McMaster offered what amounted to an apology to the British government. Earlier Friday, a spokesman for British Prime Minister Theresa May said senior UK officials had protested to the Trump administration after the claims were repeated by Spicer.

"We've made clear to the US administration that these claims are ridiculous and should be ignored. We've received assurances that these allegations won't be repeated," May's spokesman said.

The strong language from Downing Street -- which followed a similar, rare statement from the UK intelligence agency GCHQ -- indicated that the British government was furious that the US had made such an incendiary allegation.


White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer surely has an inside source for such a serious allegation-- the NSA or the CIA or the FBI? No. His source was gossip on Fox & Friends.

Is this really happening? Am I dreaming? This is unprecedented. Britain is an ally, so they'll forgive us. But these shenanigans can cause serious blowback and potentially a war.

Trump has lost credibility and that's not good
Back during the Cuban missile crisis
President Kennedy sent a special envoy to Charles De Gaulle
The envoy told Charles that he has secret pictures to show CDG proving the missiles were real
CDG waved his hand and said he did not need to see the pictures
President Kennedy's word was good enough for him

It's amateur hour at the Paranoid House.

You know, I'm beginning to think Britain, Europe, Japan, Australia, Korea and other US allies are really client states of sorts. Only the client-patron relationship forged to fight the Cold War hasn't been replaced with anything yet.

Anyway, the Golden Boy has been picking fights with other allies, too, like Australia.

It's not very likely, but a trade war is almost certain to come.

Thus far the orange man seems to have two objectives: pumping tax money into his companies, and asserting his prejudices. He's been successful with the first, but those pesky customs like the rule of law and critical thinking keep getting in the way of his bigotry.

They are promoting conspiracy theories, to make people mad, and distract people, using the excuse that they are just repeating what someone else said.

Not a sign of an administration in control.

These are unforced errors, they're going out of their way to make their own jobs more difficult.

He loses credibility every time he announces a new conspiracy theory-- Obama's birth, Ted Cruz' dad with Lee Harvey Oswald, Obama hired Britain to spy on him. And when he legitimately needs the public to give him the benefit of the doubt and trust him during a real crisis, most of us won't. (Aside from his hardcore supporters who think all of this is normal.)

An American President enlisting Britain's help in spying on a billionaire candidate about to become President? Is that a new Bond movie plot?

Oh, you can trust him in a crisis. He'll do what benefits him personally most. Any other considerations are irrelevant. If he has no stakes in the matter, then he'll follow his prejudices. if these somehow don't apply, then it's a crapshoot what he'll do; but even if it's the stupidest idea in the history of stupid ideas, he'll think it's the most brilliant idea ever.

I love how the Libs create all these
scenarios in their heads and then
pretend they're true. It's an amazing
thing to watch. Like Barron being
autistic. They made it up and then it
was true to them. lol
