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."

You people play this semantics game when it comes to Trump, you hold him to his every word and intention, yet, in the same breath, you are conveniently absent when holding these same standards to the media over the supposed Russians-are-to-blame meme. By your sheer contradiction-of-principles-of-truth you people drive the astute fair minded folks away from any reasonable position. Give me a break asshole!

That line and it's delivery at a White House presser was probably

the main reason for Merkel's visit in this cold, blustery weather.

And it was in response to a German reporter.


              Are the Trump people finally finding their footing?

Fuck the political correctness and etiquette these people in the ruling class think there needs to be.  They're used to being liars who stick to the company lines, as dictated from the Bilderbergs etc.

Merkel is finished because she, the Obozo, Cameron, Hollande, Trudeau and the other treasonous leaders of Western Nations are on the wrong side of history. Stand back and look at the big picture. Do you really think that globalism, open borders, Islamic rape and crime, degeneracy, emerging ghettos, a soulless culture and genetic suicide is going to win over sovereignty, secure borders, safe cities, economic wellbeing, traditional families and culture, grace and harmony, and a sense of a common homeland populated by the European peoples? If you believe that, then you know nothing about the human spirit and the origins of Western Civilization. In the final analysis, it boils down to blood and soil.

It already is and has been in the process for over 75 years.  Do you believe we are evolving morally because the issue with mankind is more about spiritual/moral issues than with fleshly or carnal issues?  The latter is the shadow and the former is the substance.

Traditional family is the backbone to a stable and moral society; what has happened to the traditional family and traditional roles of men and women - improving or falling apart?

The people that could down vote an obviously self evident comment such as yours probably are confused which bathroom they should use. (Boys have a penis girls have a vagina.)

" the infuriated British Spy Agency called "utterly ridiculous" ... "


You know, someone observed that GCHQ said the above and...

What they did NOT say, was that it was not true...

Gentlemen, I do believe we have hit zero point.  It happens at the point that the more you know about, the very less, you want to know about.

In my very valid opinion, cos' its worth just as much as yours, we have reached that point.  We are being systematically mugged off every time you awaken your collective eyes.  We are being played as fucking fools.  You reckon your boyo had fuck all, at all, to say to that stupid dyke cunt that dominates my Germanic friends?  Wanna buy a bridge?

This end point will involve violence.  You better make sure that you can handle the wrong end of the cunt.  It looks like the child molesters are going to try and bring this shit down before we hang the the cunts as the dogs they are.  You are not just living, you are witnessing the only time in human history, that of which you had a fucking clue about.

Word to the wise, killing the cunts is too fucking quick.  Skin the cunts alive.

Watch these two blokes., watch the hands.

Unstoppable my friends is what you are.

Why is everyone racist against people of european origin?

Big fucking deal alot of people changed their names when they came to America, like that guy toby from the movie roots.

THE ETERNAL ANGLO made us all change their names so we could have a functioning country, not like now where we are some corporate ran marxist shithole where any damn shaved ape can come in and demand benefits.

No I can't imagine looking at that screeching piece of ugly scum and her serial rapist husband every day. I thank God that Trump won just for this alone.

Sam Spayed's picture

Let's all be honest. Does anyone have any doubt whatsoever that BO would resort to digital eavesdropping on Trump or anyone else that he considers an enemy of marxism??? Any doubt at all??? Remember, EVERYTHING that is said on the telephone or on the Internet or through email is stored digitally by the NSA. Eavesdropping on a particular person only involves data mining the voluminous NSA databases for that person after the fact. It doesn't even have to be done in real time. Does anyone think BO wouldn't order this??? For crying out loud, he's close personal friends with a communist terrorist that bombed the Pentagon!

“Do you want to have a handshake?”
No response. #TrumpMerkel

THANK YOU, Mr. Trump!

Obama hijacked Merkel's BlackBerry. It probably wasn't under Enterprise. Waterloo, Canada can pull all records.

The family has been pissing ourselves laughing over the GCHQ denial.

Lol matey, if the local council clerk wanted to spy on you in the UK they just monitor your lines all legal in the UK from recent legislation and no oversight.

You telling me there is more oversight on a GCHQ spy than the council clerk? You are having a laugh.

Beyond caring in the UK it all free game to be spied on and not exactly difficult to do the same to Trump when he is still a civilian is it?

If I shit chances are they have found a way to listen to the splash in the toilet.

Are you taking your talking-points from jomama, (you sound eerily similar) or are you *closely connected*?

The reaction from Merkel concerning the spying allegations is a pat reaction from all progressives and liberals.

"Never agree with anything President Trump does or says even if it's absolutely fucking true and beyond all doubt."

Why tell the truth if there is no political advantage? Better to lie...

YourAverageJoe's picture

His hands look normal sized to me.

Scottish Hands... large palm and  thick fingers.

The proportions make things look off,  something like when you got really big potatoes next to your meat.

McDonalds french fries are too short. And when you order the McDonalds Big Breakfast, they give you one slab of butter for every three pancakes. Asking for extra butter is humilating. And unless they apologize to the US whites, I will never eat at McDonalds again. They won't apologize because they are afraid to piss off the negros, the Jews and the queers.

I wonder if the two discussed the good old days from 1933 to 1939 when the German people had cast off usury and dealt with the bankers?

Listened to the whole press conference and was stunned that not a single Western journalist bothered to ask Merkel about her deliberate destruction of Germany and Europe through the mass importation of Islamic migrants, the big fat elephant in the living room. No one bothered to ask about the German justice minister's proposal to fine citizens more than 50 million for posting "hate speech" on social media. Unbelievable, treasonous media in the room!

Nobody asked about what a disaster the EU is with massive unemployment in Portugal, Italy, Spain and even France. Youth unemployment in these countries is >30%!!  Everythings ok in Germany though so I guess Germans think - Fuck everybody else the EU is working for us at least !

Climate “Science” on Trial; Germany Builds Wind Farms While NATO Burns

One of the most outrageous examples of how climate “science” totally distorts national priorities and misallocates resources is how Germany is spending an absolute fortune on fighting climate change while failing to meet their NATO obligations of spending 2% of their GDP on defense....

Jewish HuffPo Writer Warns: All White People are on the "Racism Spectrum Until Further Notice"

HuffPo Writer Warns: All White People are on the "Racism Spectrum Until Further Notice" Justin Cohen, a contributor to the Huffington Post and former member of the education policy committee for President Obama's 2008 campaign, stated that his goal for 2017 is to have white people realize that we're all on the "racism spectrum" and that white people need to stop being so "sensitive" about being called racist. - - "He writes, "For centuries, being White in America meant reaping unearned power and advantages, relative to people who are not White. America’s power structure, to an almost comical degree, still reflects that version of Whiteness."

Mr. Cohen concludes, "Anti-racist White people must continue to make racism unacceptable, otherwise the White supremacist vision will continue to build power. And win."

If you wonder where all this anti-white rhetoric is stemming from. jews left and right attend the same synogogues. The neocons are liberal zionists who switched to the right to push Israel's war. They depend upon our ignorance of Israel's racist crimes while they lecture to us.

Arianna Huffington, fresh from her trip to Israel, tells Americans that Israel is a wonderful country, and that we need to attack Iran, just before she sold Huffington Post to Jewish interests. -

The Jewish media and even movies like to promote the idea that America was build by non-white.
Chinese build railroads, black farmers working under white landlords etc. j
but till today 92% of farms are operated by non-Hispanic whites.
White folks fed the whole country and more.
If anyone got undeserved privileges, it is the Jews and the printing machines. Which allowed them make crappy movies.
