Trump spent years trying to convince American citizens that Obama was not a citizen. Now he and his close employees are spending a lot of time trying to convince American citizens that Trump was wiretapped by Obama. It is slowly being proven that no wiretapping occurred. However, the Trump administration continues to say it did happen but in different words. They've even brought the British into it.

Why does the 45th president hate the 44th president so much? Is it the color of his skin? Is it because he is so cool, calm, and debonair?

Obama makes a good scapegoat

Obama makes a good scapegoat for his own incompetence because it resonates with his base.

When blaming the media is too vague, it is easier to point at Obama.

I think he believes this right wing conspiracy theory specifically because of the leaks in his administration. He can claim the leaks are being orchestrated by Obama.

White House counselor

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway took it up a notch last Sunday.

“There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately,” she said. “There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”

Wired goes to the trouble to explain why microwaves don't spy on you.

Conway, too, may not be as concerned as she initially seemed. “I’m not Inspector Gadget. I don’t believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign,” she told CNN on Monday. “However, I’m not in the job of having evidence, that’s what investigations are for.”

This woman is educated. Does this lead to the thought that being educated doesn't make you smart? Maybe it just means you can be a dedicated follower and believer, whether it is just for the money we may never know.

Because he has a deep-seated and justified inferiority complex associated with Obama and his deplorable behavior and treatment of Obama is how such a cruel bully handles that.

From Atrios, "liberals don't understand conservatives"

Conservatives never cared about "Wall Street" working in the White House. They cared about "Wall Street" working for Obama. Conservatives never cared about presidents playing golf, they cared about Obama playing golf. Hell, conservatives wouldn't even care if Donald Trump was born in Kenya. They just don't think black people are actually American.
