Trump’s Wiretapping Accusation Makes America Less Safe
By George Cassidy Payne

If I had to use just a few words to summarize Donald Trump, I would say that he is a hypocrite who can not comprehend his own self-deception. As a result, he is a man who lies with total sincerity.

wired01_400There is no better example than the president’s wiretapping accusation levied against President Obama. Mind you, there is zero evidence to substantiate these paranoid and malicious claims. Yet Trump himself offered the following justification to Tucker Carlson. When asked how he got his information,  he responded, “Well, I’ve been reading about things. I read in…a New York Times article where they were talking about wiretapping…I think they used that exact term. I read other things.”

On January 28, 2017, during another Twitter outburst, Trump typed: “The failing @nytimes has been wrong about me from the very beginning. Said I would lose the primaries, then the general election. FAKE NEWS!”

Does the president view the New York Times as fake news or not? If he believes the Times is fake news, then why would he use their information to validate his accusation against President Obama?

It is clear that Trump’s pathological inferiority complex with President Obama has gone beyond a personal obsession. With his latest outlandish lie, he has once again tarnished the reputation, veracity and effectiveness of the office of POTUS.

we are are dangerous turf indeed. What will happen when the president cries wolf but no one can hear the growling over the relentless static of his countless fabrications? What will happen to the integrity and responsiveness of our democratic system when the leader of the free world is not worth listening to anymore?
