Donald Trump Blames Barack Obama For The Nationwide Protests

Don’t worry, CNN, FOX, NBC and those other publications out there searching for the reason why President Agent Orange has been tweeting pure venom at our former President Barack Obama.

We got you.

In a report from The Wall Street Journal, Obama is seething with rage toward Donald Trump after his weekend Twitter rant accused the 44th Commander-in-Chief of ordering an illegal wiretap.

The man we’ve come to know and love as Barry saw those tweets as a slight, a diss and an undermining of his administration and an affront to the office of the presidency. To hit back at Trump, Obama made sure not to return Trump’s phone call. The gesture came as the new president wanted to thank the former for the letter he left in the Resolute Desk following Trump’s inauguration.

This may be the source of why Trump decided to say that Obama had him wiretapped, and has viciously attacked him personally and professionally.

In a related matter, the press has now begun to ponder aloud if Barack Obama can actually sue Trump for libel. Oh, what a time to be alive!

    Shitgibbon is not fit to carry Bamz’ jockstrap. Shitgibbon’s moob is going to end up in the wringer on this one. Practicing my slow clap.

    I supported Obama throughout his administration, but the evidence that he knew there was illegal surveillance of people connected to Trump is overwhelming, and if it does turn out to be proven positive that he wiretapped him, I will have lost all respect for him as a person for his attempts to get the corrupt hag into office by undermining the Trump campaign. The author of this article apparently doesn’t know the details, the idea that it was all based on a dodged call is laughable in the face of all the evidence that Trump is right.

    • Jeremy Andrews

      Surveillance of people in government suspected of colluding with foreign governments is not illegal.

    • illynois95

      The president ordering surveillance is most definitely illegal and that is the allegation, which every day is getting more and more proof.

    • Rufus McBoofus

      No evidence of your boolsheet claims whatsoever. GTFOH

    • Sylvia Flores Milligan

      There hasn’t been any proof as of yet, what the heck you talking about, mister???

    • Jeremy Andrews

      There is zero proof and Trump made it up. Why are you still lying about this? Why can’t you just admit Trump is a liar? Why drag Obama into this bullpuckey?

    • Thelonious Legend

      Dude, the President cannot order surveillance! He doesn’t have that power! And any surveillance of a citizen has to go thru the FISA court. This isn’t hard.

    • Dee pow

      U are an idiot. If there was wiretapping, it was legal and it wasn’t ordered by Obama but he might have been informed. Trump is just as stupid as ur comment and easily maniputaled. Its not based on dodged calls, its been proven trump got his info from brietbart and fox news. Obama was officially done as prez once trump was inaugurated, he didn’t have to deal with orange dumbass anymore. Good for him, I don’t know how the man dealt with that liar as long nor as politely as he did.

    • illynois95

      Ur an idiot. These are police state tactics being used against political opponents. They wanted to get him so bad they applied for FISA warrants to spy on his campaign twice, despite being denied. So no, we don’t know Obama ordered it, but his administration was requesting FISA taps on people related to Trump’s campaign.

    • Rufus McBoofus

      No, he was right. U ARE an idiot.

    • Jeremy Andrews

      Obama cannot order a FISA warrant. Do you even know how government works?

    • Breshvic

      Evidence? Name one piece of evidence. I’ll wait.

    • illynois95

      Heat Street reported back in November: “Two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia.”
      “The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank…. sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.”

      The Guardian reported in January:
      “The Guardian has learned that the FBI applied for a warrant from the foreign intelligence surveillance (Fisa) court over the summer in order to monitor four members of the Trump team suspected of irregular contacts with Russian officials. The Fisa court turned down the application asking FBI counter-intelligence investigators to narrow its focus. According to one report, the FBI was finally granted a warrant in October,”

      The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.

      The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said.

      McClatchy in January:
      “The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump…. The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence”

      Are you suggesting Obama didn’t know six agencies in his administration were involved in an investigation?

      New York Times, January 19th:
      “The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.”

      Wiretapping? Provided to the White House? But there’s no evidence Obama was involved in wiretapping Trump?

      Another NYT article:
      “In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.”

      Why would they do that while on their way out the door?

      Perhaps because…
      (NYT March 1, 2017)
      “In the Obama administration’s last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election — and about possible contacts between associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump and Russians — across the government.”

      So basically there is no denying that the Obama administration spied on Trump, and in fact were so intent on getting to him that after being denied their first request for a warrant, they went back twice. The idea that Obama was clueless about this is absurd. These are Soviet police state tactics, and with these publications reporting on the activity, of course Obama knew about it.

    • lexicon in a box

      It’s not trying to get clinton into office, it’s trying to protect the integrity of the election process and the sovereignty of the country. you can’t deny the links between Trump surrogates and the Kremlin, which was scrutinized only because Trump has such a unique stance on Russia-U.S. relations compared to any of his political contemporaries. It is not unreasonable to investigate this kind of thing. Of course, Putin chess grandmaster outsmarted everyone and hacked a political party, which is a private organization and not a democratic government institution, even though the hacking affected democratic government institutions. If the FSB had hacked into government election databases, the U.S. could have reasonable grounds and BIPARTISAN APPROVAL to retaliate or postpone or whatever, But because Putin indirectly INFLUENCED the election by influencing public perception/opinion of the Dems, Obama can’t directly clapback without it looking like aggression or favouritism/trying to rig the election for his party/candidate. Fucking Putin…. always playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers

    • Dee pow

      I’m honestly beginning to think this person is being deliberately obtuse or is just some trump/Russian troll.

    • illynois95

      There’s no evidence of collusion. There never has been, and never will be. The only thing they have is the fact that Paul Manafort, who was kicked off the campaign trail during the election cycle, used to work with Russian politicians years ago. People who connect that to Trump being a Russian agent are delusional and desperate to overturn the legitimate election results. Sure, Russia worked to get Trump in, after Hillary threatened to take military action against them and start a no-fly zone in Iran, all of which would have led to all out war. But Trump was not acting on their behalf, unless you think they’ve been colluding with him for the past 30-plus years, which is how long he’s been publicly expressing the same policies he is pushing now. The fact that he prefers to be on good terms with Russia, I can’t imagine why that would be a bad thing.

    • Dee pow

      Sure, buddy. I’m done bc its painfully obvious this is a troll job. Either that or u are honestly as delusional as trump. There is so much proof trump is compromised and there is none that Obama nor anyone else in the IC nor government did anything besides try to protect our country. He is not legit BC he is a puppet, he is mentally unstable, he is a racist, xenophobe, misogynist, homophobic moron who is financial insolvent and in debt to Russia, China and Saudi Arabia. Stop reading right wing propaganda and find some real news. He has no idea how the government works, he is a con man grifting the poorly educated morons like yourself. Buh bye toll, get a life.

    • illynois95

      Yep, you are stupid. He’s not racist, xenophobic, misogynist, or homophobic for one thing. That is just something the media pushes that only incredibly stupid people repeat at face value. Can you even name a single reason he is homophobic? Of course not, because you just repeat stuff the media says with no evidence.

    • docbets

      Flynn, foreign agent. Need more? Wait a day.

    • illynois95

      Lmao. He had a meeting with a Russian =/= he is a foreign agent. This is why you people are hysterical and stupid, for making such idiotic conflations.

    • Rufus McBoofus

      Boolsheet.

    • Dee pow

      Lol, u obviously do not understand that the president is not king. He can not order the intelligence community to do anything. Trump is caught colluding with Russia, not the other way around. Obama kept things to himself so as not to influence the election, in hopes that Hillary would win and this would all become moot. But she didn’t, for many and varied reasons that can be debated until the end of time or until facts are released by said IC investigation. So no, Obama was not clueless, no one is disagreeing with that, but he isn’t the reason, he isn’t some mastermind behind some deep state revolt. He was simply our last legitimate president and u have fallen in a with the other imbeciles in this country.

    • illynois95

      Yea, how is Trump not legitimate? He was elected democratically, like it or not, and there is no evidence of collusion with Russia. Russia more than likely was behind the Wikileaks emails, but so what? People being too informed about Hillary is evidence that Trump’s election is illegitimate? And you call me an imbecile. Trump HAS NOT colluded with Russia, and that is the assumption until a shred of evidence shows otherwise.

      As for the Obama accusations. notice I never claimed Obama made the orders, but Trump and his campaign WERE being investigated AND Obama knew about it. Period. Over false claims of Russian correspondence.

    • Dee pow

      Begone troll.

    • jacksmith76

      Agreed. However, the last legitimate president was actually JFK.

    • lesizz

      You talk too much.

    • gerry tierney

      You are as delusional as Presidnt Pinocchio.

    • illynois95

      How so? I’ve laid out several facts pertaining to the accusations. Do you have an argument to make or nah?

    • Dee pow

      ‘Facts’. I do not think that word means what u think it means

    • illynois95

      Okay, so we actually don’t know if the investigations that the media reported on actually happened. Do you have any evidence to suggest that all the investigations into Trump’s campaign (check all the news articles I mentioned) did not actually happen? If not, what do you mean? What did I say that is non-factual?

    • gerry tierney

      You obviously don’t have any understanding of how things work and I have no inclination to try to educate anyone with cognitive dissonance.

    • illynois95

      In other words you are upset that i am criticizing Obama but don’t know how to defend him. I never said he ordered anything, but he definitely knew the investigations were going on. The investigations into collusion with Russia went forward despite no evidence. It was clearly politically motivated.

    • Newf2002

      Your facts appear to be that the “evidence is overwhelming”. That, my friend, is a naked assertion, not fact. Asshat . . . . . . .

    • Byron Sparrow

      What evidence?

    • Rufus McBoofus

      That’s some straight up boolsheet.

    • Sue4466

      Illynois95: You’re lying, comrade.

    • illynois95

      about?

    • Dee pow

      Hmmm everything, bro, u lie like the liar in the white house.

    • illynois95

      Then tell me why I’m wrong. Just saying I’m wrong is not an argument, FYI.

    • Scrutinizer

      Hold still a moment.

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      Thanks.

    • Steve Smith

      Must be another of Trump’s Russian FSB buddies. You aren’t from Illinois because you can’t spell it. How’s the winter in St. Petersburg this year you vile Commie?

    • illynois95

      you are mentally retarded

    • Newf2002

      So the evidence is “overwhelming” but “if it does turn out to be proven positive that he wiretapped him” blah blah blah. Make your mind up. There is either overwhelming evidence in which case it is proven, or more likely you are spouting nonsense, like your fella “the Cheeto-Faced, Ferret Wearing Shitgibbon”

    • illynois95

      You realize that overwhelming evidence does not mean something has been 100% vindicated, right?

      Either way, the wiretapping claim as it pertains to Obama seem to have been misleading. But the agencies do appear to have surveilled Trump in some capacity.

    • Newf2002

      Utter twaddle. So many issues with what you say, e.g. Criminal standard? Beyond reasonable doubt. You go jail or get executed at less than 100%.

      In any event they all said no evidence of any wiretapping of POTUS. We are all being surveilled on a daily basis (security cameras, press, airports) and if he gets caught talking to bad guys, he is not under surveillance, just a guilty bystander.

    • illynois95

      Never even heard the word twaddle, but no, there is nothing contradicting about saying “overwhelming evidence” has not fully proven something.

      Right. The current story is that Trump is wrong and any surveillance his team (not him) was caught in was made while bugging Russia. Nothing to suggest they were guilty of anything though.

  • Rufus McBoofus

    Trump is mentally ill. Dude is melting down like Fukushima.

    • AlmostJane

      GREAT analogy! As Trump is every bit as toxic as Fukushima too.

    • Rufus McBoofus

      Not to mention his weird orange glow…

    • redmanrt

      What about your weird pear shape?

    • Rufus McBoofus

      LOL I think you’ve got me confused with President Fatty, there, son. That dude puts the rump in Trump.

    • redmanrt

      Well, I know you are a physical coward. Lbtrds like you shun responsibility for good reason.

    • Rufus McBoofus

      LOL And you know this how? There you go with your idiotic assumptions again. You’re funny. I like you. Will you be my friend?

    • Rufus McBoofus

      I gotta ask, do you actually know any liberals in real life? Your knowledge of us seems completely anecdotal, and your rage feels second-hand. It’s like watching a blind man describe an elephant.

    • redmanrt

      When is the last time you practiced at a firing range, commie?

    • Rufus McBoofus

      LOL That’s your first mistake, son: assuming that everybody who disagrees with you is a “commie” — more proof of your extremist partisan derangement.

      Your second mistake is assuming that no Dems have any experience with firearms. See, I grew up on a farm and got my first Remington 700 youth model at the age of 12, and used it in lots of NRA under-18 shoots. My WWII-Vet dad made sure I knew all about gun safety and maintenance, too (He was a big FDR fan and a lifelong Dem — with the exception of two votes for Ike. He couldn’t stand Reagan, though and called him a “4F washout Hollywood pretty boy”. But he said the same thing about Sinatra, so…). He also taught me that killing fascists was a sacred American duty and tradition.

      Though it’s been a minute since the last time I was at the range — because I do have a life outside of prepping for an imaginary civil war that’s never gonna happen — the last time I went I got to run my brother’s Barrett 99. That is one sweet long gun… even if you need to take out a second mortgage to pay for a box of .50 cal these days…

    • Rufus McBoofus

      Why do dumb guys always think that power comes from the barrel of a gun? You think like Mao, but you’re calling ME a commie? Priceless.

  • cutator

    filed under who cares…

    As if Trump would call Obutthead anyway……

    Obama is NOT RELEVANT to anything……..at all..

    • Rufus McBoofus

      Then why does Trump keep whining about him all the time? Try to keep up with the conversation here, slowpoke.

  • docbets

    Trump is a slow reader but it can’t have taken him since January to read a letter and call his thankyou. This is a silly article.
