“And now, the end is near and so I face the final curtain …”
– My Way, Frank Sinatra
They say everything has a beginning, a middle and an end. We may be witnessing the end of the Trump presidency.
With a number of investigations into Trump’s Russia ties already under way, and a few more likely to come, the new president seems to be circling the wagons and preparing for the final battle.
In an almost predictable move, Trump is deflecting in a way he knows has always worked for him … Obama bashing. No, the latest accusation isn’t as wild as when he claimed Obama was literally the founder of ISIS. But this new one is up there in craziness.
In a series of tweets, Trump is accusing the former president of illegally spying on him during the campaign by wiretapping Trump Tower.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!
I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!
No one knows for sure the source of Trump’s information but there is word that it stems from a recent Breitbart article. But can the National Enquirer be ruled out?
Trump knows the end is near. His seemingly irrational tweet storm is likely intended to keep his loyal supporters rallied around him no matter what information comes to light.
Call it a form of damage control.
While Trump may lose the White House, he does not want to lose those loyal followers who will believe whatever conspiracy theory is being peddled to them.
Trump needs them for his next venture … unless his Twitter access is hampered by prison walls.
