According to liberals and their complicit media, President Trump is an ignorant blowhard who is supremely unqualified to be Commander-in-Chief of the United States. His propensity for utilizing Twitter for messaging, they say, is the work of a crazy man unhinged from reality.
What they continuously fail to recognize is that Trump may be crazy like a fox. His latest controversial tweets took aim at former President Barack Obama, claiming that the previous administration had wire-tapped Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign season. The news exploded on social media, with Obama issuing a non-denial denial, while other pundits and former officials weighed in regarding the veracity of The Donald’s allegations.
But just as he turned the tables on the Democrats during his speech to the joint session of Congress, Trump has now achieved the same goal with the media, which has been relentlessly spouting a narrative of unscrupulous ties between him and members of his campaign with Russia. The slow burn of allegedly scandalous or illegal Russian ties has plagued the new administration from the beginning. But where did these sources get their information, if indeed it’s true? Did the Obama administration bug Trump’s offices, or is there actually no credible connection between Trump and Russia? They can’t have it both ways.
Arbiters of some of the most vicious attacks on Trump are now stepping back from their previous positions, including Democrat Senator Chris Coons.

According to Breitbart:
The much-discussed New York Times piece from January 19 is a perfect example of this. It begins by matter-of-factly confirming the existence of the wiretaps everyone in Obamaworld is now swearing are a figment of Donald Trump’s imagination. Mountains of innuendo about connections between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence have been spun out of what these abruptly non-existent intercepts contained, according to the anonymous leakers who currently drive almost 100 percent of mainstream media coverage.
But if you read that New York Times article carefully, it admits the communications intercepts may not exist, and if they do, no one can confirm what they actually say.
In effect, the media has been caught with its pants down, now frantically back-peddling on its insistence that massive wire-tapping had uncovered all manner of illegal Trump/Russia connections — now that the Obama administration has been outed as the possible source of that surveillance.
