WATCH: Trump backer’s bizarre defense of president’s wiretapping conspiracy leaves CNN panel baffled

Published

CNN's Kate Bolduan talks with Paul Begala and Trump supporter Amy Kremer (Screen cap).

President Donald Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama had “illegally” wiretapped him during the 2016 presidential campaign continued to dominate the discussion on CNN Monday.

In a panel hosted by CNN’s Kate Bolduan, Women Vote Trump co-chair Amy Kremer did her best to back up the president’s claims that Obama had broken the law by tapping his phone lines at Trump Tower — but just like every other Trump surrogate interviewed so far, she offered no proof whatsoever to support her position.

When asked by Bolduan why the president doesn’t just declassify any FISA warrants that were issued to monitor him under President Obama, Kremer broke off into a non-sequitur about Trump doing things on his own schedule.

“One thing we’ve seen is Donald Trump operates on Donald Trump time,” said Kremer. “And he doesn’t necessarily go to the media, he’ll go around the media through Twitter or whatever. I‘m sure when he’s ready to put that out there, we will hear from it.”

Earlier in the segment, Democratic strategist Paul Begala noted that President Trump has regularly engaged in baseless conspiracy theories about his political rivals, including conspiracies about President Obama’s birth certificate, Sen. Ted Cruz’s father being involved with Lee Harvey Oswald, and three million “illegal” voters that supposedly cost him the popular vote win against Hillary Clinton.

“He’s subscribed to every batty conspiracy theory,” Begala said, while dismissing the president’s latest ramblings as completely fact free.

Trump tells supporters he won’t be ‘stupid’ enough for peaceful transition of power if he loses

Published

President Donald Trump continued to spread debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election during a Friday night campaign rally in Virginia.

Trump argued that it was impossible for him to lose the election, thus concluding he would be "stupid" to hand over power peacefully should he lose.

"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.

"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."
