Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Donald Trump took to Twitter this weekend to dive deeper into his alternate reality where down is up, the Bowling Green Massacre actually happened — and President Obama tapped his phone last year.

It’s hard to ignore the parallels between that other infamous wiretapping scandal involving a past president, but HBO’s John Oliver noticed an aspect other pundits missed. As he explained during Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight: “I’m going to call it ‘Stupid Watergate,’ a potential scandal with all the intrigue of Watergate, except everyone involved is really bad at everything.”

As always Oliver argues cogently, starting with the fact that Trump’s revelation apparently derives from a Breitbart post detailing baseless claims by conspiracy-loving talk show host, Mark Levin. And after observing Speaker Paul Ryan’s reaction to Trump during last week’s presidential address to Congress, Oliver coined a perfect slogan for the embarrassed GOP: “Don’t laugh, he’s the president.”

  1. Oh that smirk by Paul Ryan was hilarious ???? How much longer can the GOP keep a straight face ???? at the trivial BS coming from the so called President ?

    • You know it just doesn’t seem possible that he is even smart enough to pull off a conspiracy. I guess that’s why he needed the Russians.

      • Just last week when Trump announced that the Obamacare repeal would be delayed because, “Who knew health care could be so complicated?”; the answer being everyone who’s ever looked at the issue.

        Do you laugh?
        Do you cry?

        • After hearing his so-called “plan,” I think most of his followers in the Rust Belt will be crying!! He promised them better healthcare for less money, and his plan calls for MORE money and LESS care! According to the info, Rust Belt has more people that need medical care due to obesity, diabetes, cardiology problems, etc. than any other area of the country…..they are NOT going to be happy that 45 has put healthcare back into the hands of the insurance companies and allowing them to charge whatever they want for care! Do you think then will NOW realize that they were conned?

          • I’d like to think you’re right. But recognizing the con won’t mean much unless they show up to vote.

    • Meg, your 2nd rate attempt to be an employee of Putin just isn’t cutting it, dear. While what little honor remains for you in your pitiful attempt to show support for Trump, give up the ghost and resign yourself to the fact that Trump’s downfall is imminent with a humiliating denouement.
      Sorry, pal—that’s the way it has to be, because Trump’s Karma is not good.

    • In fact if Trump was wiretapped using a court order it would be legal. If there is reason to believe laws were being broken.

  2. Phone bugs?
    Intelligence agencies use laser spying when they want to spy!
    Ever read about vibrating windows and lasers?
    The CIA had that capability during WATERGATE!
    What were the “burglars REALLY doing?
    WATERGATE was no “third-rate burglary”!!

  3. I have earned 104 thousand bucks previous year by freelancing online a­n­d I did that by wo­rking in my own time f­o­r 3 or sometimes more hours /daily.

This is what i did…
