Trump Responds To Obama Wiretap Question: "At Least Merkel And I Have Something In Common"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following today's latest developments over Trump's allegations that the UK's GCHQ may or may not have helped Obama to wiretap the Trump Tower, an allegation which the infuriated British Spy Agency called "utterly ridiculous" and prompted it to demand an apology from the White House, a German reporter asked Trump for his current opinion on whether Obama had indeed wiretapped Trump. The president's response: he gestured to Angela Merkel and said "on wiretapping by this past administration, at least we have something in common."

Merkel's reaction was similarly amusing: almost as if she had heard for the first time that in 2010, and for years onward, Barack Obama had been wiretapping her and countless other heads of state.


For those unsure what the exchange was about, we suggest you read the Telegraph's "Barack Obama 'approved tapping Angela Merkel's phone 3 years ago'...  President Barack Obama was told about monitoring of German Chancellor in 2010 and allowed it to continue, says German newspaper."

And incidentally, in yet another change in the official narrative, after both Sky News and the Telegraph reported earlier today that the White House had apologized to Britain over the accusation that its spy agency had helped Obama spy on Trump, the NYT reported that the White House has said there was no apology from either Spicer or McMaster, and that instead the Administration defended Spicer's mention of the wiretapping story.

Finally, as Axios adds, after Trump and Merkel left the stage reporters again asked Sean Spicer whether he apologized for repeating an anonymously sourced Fox News claim that British intelligence helped in wiretapping Trump Tower. His response: "I don't think we regret anything."

I watched this press conference thinking something funny or serious would come up.  When I heard this I gasped hahahahaha 

That was superbly done.  Brings in the connection of the 2 claims (Angela and allegedly DJ Trump wiretapped).  If it isn't true.. well it was excellent trolling of the 44th and his supporters.  Also thank you Tylers for putting up an entry on this.

Not enough investigating though.

Bless Louie Gohmert. He is circulating a letter asking Ryan for a briefing on how the Awan brothers investigation is going.

If anyone doesn't understand about the Awan brothers, here's a primer.

Nope, I'm still as deeply concerned as I was before he was elected.

I'm not dissapointed you elected him.  I'm dissapointed "you" are doing back flips making excuses for perpetuation of the MIC machine and government sachs

All or nothing thinking is the issue here.

I am not in the position he is, I can't know what is up. What a nightmare, to be president. All the shit you take. I'd come out to the American people and tell them all they could go fuck themselves because they are imbiciles, and that they need to back the fuck down. He has not done that...

He is a narcissist, no doubt. That is how he can last as long as he has. It gives him a sort of protective oblivious quality.

He says outrageous things, no doubt.

I don't like him. True.

I don't like many of the choices he has made (MIC and Govt. Sachs).

Meanwhile, politics is about compromises, plus he has to have some insiders to help him run the machine.

He does need to deliver SOLID on some swamp draining to keep me in the "open mind" stance. 

I still have an open mind because, honestly, he ain't Christ, but short of the guns coming out, he is our last chance. I think some folks are throwing down with him because they want to know they gave their all in terms of support. If he fails, were you a wuss, talking him down and not helping? 

I need a good fix, a prosecution, a sign he is working the agenda, something. This MIC stuff is corrupt to the core. At this point we are staying in charge of it because if we don't, someone else will. 

And so it goes. 

I support those who support Trump, here. I know what they are hoping for. I have genuine doubts, but damn, if we end up not being able to trust anyone who gets into that spot, that means the United States of America is done. I am still in love with that, the founding fathers were exceptional thinkers and clearly fed up and desperate. They knew what could happen because it has all happened before. Not an iPad or MacBook on one of them. I am in awe of what America is supposed to be. I would work hard for that, if I think there is a chance. I would put up with a lot, if I think there is a chance. 

I think more of us see what you see than you think. Gotta give this a chance, even if there is a lot of SUCK in the medicine. 

And he may be the fire that lights the fuse and there is not a fucking thing we can do anyway.

Both bugged by the Old-CIA (banksters). I doubt that they have much more in common though. She's a luciferian who stages terrorism. Trump comes, no more staged terrorism in the US.

Each day I wake up wondering what wonderful oratory gift President Trump will deliver. 
This is the best present in a quite a while.
I am delighted.
Trump makes waking up a true joy.

Political Alzheimer's. I thought it was only Nancy Pelosi and a few other democratic "I can't recall" characters.
