Donald Trump likes to hint at dark conspiracy theories about President Obama by insisting there’s “something going on” that explains his behavior that we don’t know about.
He previously said that there’s “something going on” with Obama that suggests he may secretly support Islamist terrorist attacks, and he was back at it again this morning by claiming that there’s “something going on” with Obama’s body language that shows he hates police officers.
Trump explained to Fox & Friends on Monday that while watching the president deliver his remarks condemning the shooting of police officers in Baton Rouge on Sunday, he noticed something off about the way he carried himself.
“I listened to the president and sometimes his words are okay, but you just look at the body language, there’s something going on,” Trump said. “There’s something going on.”
“What does that mean, ‘There’s something going on?'” asked Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy.
“There’s just bad feeling,” Trump replied. “And a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it too. We have a country that has not been like this since I can remember it.”
The Fox & Friends hosts didn’t really know how to react to this and tried to change the subject after a couple of seconds of uncomfortable silence — it seems that even they regretted asking Trump to elaborate on his observations about the secret meanings of Obama’s anti-cop body language.

If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr
Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.
"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."
Trump ‘shirking his duty to protect the country’ by ignoring Russia election threat: Ex-CIA agent
Ex-CIA agent Evan McMullin told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump was "shirking his duty to protect the country" by ignoring the fact that Russia plans to attack the 2020 election.
"He's shirking his responsibility to protect the country," McMullin said. "We are in a new era of information warfare."
"Countries can be defeated without a shot being fired," he went on. "We just learned from the Mueller report that the president was aware that we were undergoing, as a country, an information warfare attack during 2016. He sought to benefit from it."
"A lot of times we say 'look, the president's ego is wounded' when we talk about how the Russians attacked us, and may have helped him get elected," McMullin continued. "But I actually think that we are a little naive to buy into that narrative. I think that is a fig leaf for the president. How can we ignore that this president barely won the electoral college?"
White House made it clear they were ‘trying to hide’ evidence from Mueller: Omarosa
Omarosa Manigault, former political aide to President Donald Trump, told MSNBC Wednesday that the while the White House never "directly" ordered her to destroy documents related to the Mueller report, they made it quite clear they were "trying to hide" evidence.
"He wants to run out the clock," Manigault said. "He thinks he can run down the clock and that people will stop being concerned about it. We should really not just focus about what he is telling people to do or say, but how he's asked people to destroy documents, to destroy e-mails, in my case two boxes of campaign-related materials that the White House still has in their possession, that they claim they don't have or don't know what happened to it."
