CNN’s Jake Tapper called Donald Trump’s wiretap allegations “nonsense” and another example of his affinity for “conspiracy theories untethered to facts.”
Last Saturday, Trump put out a series of unhinged tweets accusing President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election. Of course he has no evidence or proof of that. But when has that ever stopped him from spewing outrageous lies before?
One good thing that’s happening now is the press have finally had enough of his bullshit.
Tapper called Trump’s claims “untethered to facts” and straight out “lies.” He was spot on.
“We’ve been here before. And this is not a land with much sense or respect for facts. This is a place of conspiracy theories untethered to facts. And these theories are voiced by President Trump,” Tapper said.
He added: “It goes on and on. None of it’s true. And the people around President Trump who are enabling this nonsense, the ones who know better, you have to ask yourselves this question: Are you really serving the President? Are you really serving the American people?”
