The Phones Are Bugged

Today has been a strange news day. I woke up to tweets seemingly straight out of the Twilight Zone by president numero 45 blaming ex-president Obama for tapping his phones at the Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida. Trump’s tweet:

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

First of all, sacred election process? Wut? o_O

Second of all, yes we are all thinking about Nixon/Watergate when we think of you too, Trump. It’s the only reference point other than Hitler that we have. Consider it a compliment. We just want you out of office, we don’t necessarily want you to commit suicide with your girlfriend in a barn.

Meanwhile, it’s looking plausible that the FBI or the CIA was granted a FISA warrant to monitor Trump and his close associates in order to examine the link between these men and Foreign Intelligence (read Russia.) during the election. None of this is shocking. We’ve all been well aware of the Trump-Russia connection during the election for quite some time. What is strange is that the actual sitting-I’m-suppossed-to-be-a-grown-ass-adult-not-to-mention-the president of the United States would tweet that this is happening and call Obama a “bad or ‘sick'” guy all in one go. Impressive for 140 characters. It seems the old man shows his immaturity and his hand at every poker game. And by poker, I mean golf because poker is WAY too much of an intellectual, strategic game for that orange-sherbet-toned-son-of-a-b.

If I had found out that my phones were tapped, I certainly wouldn’t advertise it all over the internet. And if I wanted to seem innocent I wouldn’t act so darn guilty all the time. Stopping with all of the projection and name calling, might be smart too. But hey, what do I know? I’m not suspected of possible treason. If I was, maybe I would be terrible to all the people I’m supposed to represent on a daily basis too.

We can only guess what shenanigans the Trump administration will drag to our doorstep next. Rumor is more horrible polices on immigration (making all police immigration officials) and travel bans (a new Executive Order) are headed our way this Monday. The only thing I want deported is this terrible administration. Trump’s meltdown and lack of leadership skills is putting all Americans in serious danger.

It needs to stop. We need true leadership in the White House – and fast.
