In case you hadn’t heard, the big scandal our moronic and illegitimate president wants us to focus on for the next few months is that he was wiretapped at Trump Tower by President Obama. He has no proof of this paranoid delusion, mind you. We’re just supposed to take the word of a pathological liar.
At Tuesday’s daily press briefing, MSNBC reporter Hallie Jackson asked the most logical question yet regarding Trump’s accusations of wiretapping: If Trump has evidence, why not present it instead of asking for a congressional investigation which will be nothing more than a dog and pony show? Jackson asked the perpetually inept White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer:
“You said the president stands by his tweets Saturday morning that President Obama ordered this wiretap. You’ve also said that the president wants Congress to investigate. Some members of Congress, by the way, have asked the White House and asked the president to come forward with the information.
“So bottom line, why would the president want Congress to investigate for information he already has?”
Spicer, after getting the classic deer caught in headlights look, managed to say Trump was worried about the “separation of power aspect,” and then added:
“It’s a question of appropriateness.”
For her follow-up, Jackson posited this query:
“But if the president has the info…if he’s sitting on this information, if he’s found out — he’s now directing or asking or recommending that the intelligence committees look into this. And you talked about they have resources and staff, which they do. But why expend those resources and staff if the president found out this information and has it?”
All Spicer could manage in response was:
“I think we’ve made it very clear how he wants this done.”
Yeah, and you’ve also made it painfully clear that this entire administration is full of shit.
Here’s the exchange:
