Spicey says 'NO MORE INFO ABOUT RUSSIA' and then Trump tweets about Russia.
Trump Makes Insane ‘Obama Surveillance’ Announcement During Early AM Mental Collapse
Less than 24 hours ago, White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced that he would no longer be answering questions about the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russian government to win the 2016 presidential elections. All future questions, Spicer said, should be directed to Trump’s lawyer. This is a standard move when an investigation is underway and a case can be compromised by public statements that might refute later testimony.
That isn’t going to stop Trump from doing his paranoid tweeting thing, though. On Thursday morning, Trump wanted to remind everyone that whenever things go wrong for him and the rest of the GOP, the person to blame is always President Obama.
Actually, the big story is that the current president may have been elected because he and his campaign team colluded with a hostile foreign country to interfere in the democratic process, thereby committing treason. Leave it to that same president, however, to blame Obama.
No matter how hard Trump tries, he just can’t seem to get the media and the American public to focus on what he wants them to write and discuss.
He also can’t get the intelligence community to just say what he wants them to say. He tried, reportedly, more than once to get former FBI Director James Comey to say publicly that the president is not under investigation. When Comey refused to do so, he was fired.
