In a series of tweets issued early Saturday morning, Donald Trump accused ex-president Barack Obama of “tapping” the phones at Trump Tower just prior to the election while comparing the former president to Richard Nixon.

Following a tweet defending embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his contacts with the Russians, Trump suddenly changed gears with a startling collection of tweets attacking Obama, although it is unclear what Trump is directly alluding to.

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” Trump wrote.

It is possible that Trump’s allegations are the result of an article published at Breitbart, accusing Obama of instigating a “silent coup” against the sitting president.

Texas Congressman Al Green (D) on Thursday responded to a man from North Carolina who lectured him about the threat of "pimps and gangbangers."

During a discussion about systemic racism on C-SPAN's Washington Journal program, a Republican named Terry called in from North Carolina.

"You're the person I really want to talk [to] about this," Terry said. "I want to use my city of Asheville, NC as a starting block. It's not racism that the children here in Lee-Walker Heights have to get up every morning and walk out to the school bus and step across dirty hypodermics and used condoms.

Published

on

The bad news is there's another debate coming up next week. The good news, however, is that President Donald Trump won't be there, noted conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin in her Thursday column.

Writing in the Washington Post, Rubin celebrated a momentary return to normalcy, anticipating that Vice President Mike Pence won't randomly start screaming over Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and turn the debate into a circus.
