In 2017, Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of “wire tapping” Trump Tower in a pathetic attempt to distract everyone from how horrible he was during his 2016 campaign.

There was absolutely zero evidence to back up this claim, but Trump rode it out as long as he could, gaining tons of gullible racist followers along the way. Even despite the fact that Obama, the Justice Department and the FBI denied any eavesdropping, Trump continued to whine about it on Twitter in SEVERAL posts. Here’s a refresher:


We’re now over two years into Trump’s horrendous presidency, and he finally admitted that he had played everyone. During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity last night, Trump admitted to making the allegation against Obama with no real evidence, just “a little bit of a hunch.” In fact, he couldn’t believe people were dumb enough to take him seriously. Trump said:

I don’t know if you remember, a long time ago, very early on I used the word wiretap, and I put in quotes, meaning surveillance, spying you can sort of say whatever you want.

Now I understand why, because they thought two years ago when I said that just on a little bit of a hunch and a little bit of wisdom maybe, it blew up because they thought maybe I was wise to them. Or they were caught. And that’s why. ’Cuz if they weren’t doing anything wrong it would’ve just gotten by, nobody would’ve cared about it.”

Bragging that his baseless wiretapping allegation “blew up,” Trump said:

It was pretty insignificant, I thought when I said it, and it’s pretty amazing.”

It seems that even Trump is amazed by the stupidity of the people who believe him, and he used it to tarnish the reputation of one of his biggest threats.
