Political satirist P.J. O’Rourke on Wednesday scalded “giant toddler” Donald Trump for his claim that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, joking that the president’s aides should “give up” and tell the American people, “Look, he’s your drunk uncle.”
Discussing White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s “evolving” defense of Trump’s wiretap tweets, MSNBC host Chris Matthews asked O’Rourke to respond to the president’s charge against his predecessor.
“At first I thought it was an old magician trick, just diversion,” O’Rourke said. ”Now I’m starting to think attributing anything as intelligent as a plan to Donald Trump is necessary.”
“This guy is a giant toddler, and there’s nothing going on in his head except, ‘when can I suck my thumb again?’” he added.
“Sean Spicer should just give up and say, ‘Look, he’s your drunk uncle,” O’Rourke later joked.

Evangelicals wildly chant ‘4 more years’ after Trump claims mothers are ‘executing’ their infants after birth
Speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition 2019 Road to Majority Policy Conference in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, President Donald Trump claimed that infants were being "executed" after birth.
"Unfortunately, Democrat politicians have become increasingly hostile to pro-life Americans, who want to help more children find a loving home and share their dreams with the world," Trump told the evangelical crowd.
"Virtually every top Democrat now supports taxpayer-funded abortion right up to the moment of birth. By the way, if you watched Virginia, the governor, after the moment of birth -- that was something that nobody -- that was something that nobody heard of before. After the moment of birth."
Meghan McCain explodes after Whoopi Goldberg compares US record on LGBT rights to Iran
Meghan McCain slammed Iran for its treatment of LGBT people, and she lashed out when Whoopi Goldberg reminded her of the Republican Party's less-than-stellar record on equal rights.
"The View" co-host condemned Iran's harshly oppressive treatment of women and LGBT people, as its leaders engage in an escalating war of words with President Donald Trump.
"When you are a leader of a country that throws gay people off of roofs for being gay, and stone women in the street for wearing tank tops, how dare you judge our country," McCain said.
Goldberg stepped in to say the U.S. didn't have a spotless history in that regard.
