*Making an internationally recognized fool of himself, Chump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer doubled down on Chump's claim that President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower with the help of a British Spy Organization/"British Listening Post" called GCHQ after Senate Intelligence Committee (among others) said there's no proof that President Obama did any such thing. 

Spicer got into a bat-sh** crazy argument with a reporter, aggressively defending Chump's wiretapping accusation against the only black person Chump could think of to blame for whatever problem he was having in that moment, President Barack Obama. The only one that could have been pleased by Spicer's performance was Chump himself. 

Even republicans in congress have confirmed there's no evidence of any sort of spying from Obama.  But the White House, via Spicer, are pushing forward on the accusations anyway saying they have their own sources. 

This is actually what you would call an "International Incident." Great Britain called Chump's claims ridiculous and denied any involvement. The U.S. had to tell Britain, one of our closest allies, that the accusation would NOT be repeated again. 

The lowlight of Spicer's [worst performance yet] was a lengthy reading of press clips — largely from conservative columnist and pundits — that allegedly made the case for why Trump was right about the wiretapping. (They didn't make that case at all.)

Here's a sample of that soliloquy:

  • Last on Fox News, on March 14, Judge Andrew Napolitano made the following statement, quote, “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ. What is that? It's the initials for the British intelligence finding agency. So, simply by having two people saying to them president needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump's conversations, involving president-elect Trump, he's able to get it and there's no American fingerprints on this. Putting the published accounts and common-sense together, this leads to a lot.

"That little riff got Spicer into a lot of trouble."

Like I said, This was an "international incident." This is stupid and ugly, but leaders in other countries are beginning to understand they can't trust anything --and I mean absolutely nothing -- that comes out of Chump's mouth. He is putting America in danger with every unsubstantiated accusation. 

And Spicer will say anything for a pat on the head from Chump, apparently -- America be damned.

The White Nationalist tilt of the country is worrying me. But the country has to still be here for me to worry about first -- ya know?
