Trump goes on insane conspiratorial rant accusing Obama of being behind the ‘corrupt’ 2016 election

Published

President Donald Trump on Wednesday went on a conspiratorial rant in which he accused former President Barack Obama of being behind the purportedly “corrupt” election in 2016 that Trump himself actually won.

During a joint press conference with Sergio Mattarella, the president uncorked a rambling tirade in which he claimed without any evidence that Obama had tried to rig the 2016 election against him.

“It was a corrupt election,” Trump said, before saying that Attorney General Bill Barr was looking into whether that corruption “goes right up to President Obama.” The president then predicted that the investigation would implicate Obama.

Shortly after that, the president took a shot at the Italian government by suggesting that it may have been involved in Obama’s purported “corruption.”

Trump and his allies have been promoting a theory for months that Obama and America’s law enforcement agencies conspired to frame him for his campaign’s multiple contacts with Russian officials in order to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election.

This conspiracy theory makes little sense, however, as it was not acknowledged publicly that Trump’s campaign was under investigation by the FBI until after the president had won the election. Additionally, former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails just 11 days before the election undercuts the theory that he was part of a massive conspiracy to put her in the White House.

‘Rather than leading — he lies’: MSNBC panel says Trump is a ‘danger to the country’ because he can’t be trusted

Published

on

MSNBC commentators, former assistant US Attorney Maya Wiley and Rick Wilson, explained that President Donald Trump's most significant barrier is making it past his own lies to save America from the coronavirus.

"There's a case tonight being tested in Walton County, Florida. The heart of Trump country," said Wilson, referring to the panhandle county east of Pensacola. "That's not going to be something you can just walk away from if it turns out to be a real case. We're seeing these things popping up all over. The safe bet was always to say, 'This could be bad. We'll do everything we can to stop it.' But he can't stop himself from self-aggrandizing and lying about things. And it's actually -- setting aside my normal criticism of Trump -- this is a danger to the country that he is not a trustworthy person for the American people. Even people who like him now he BS's them all the time. Now, if he says it's not a problem and people are being hospitalized, it is a problem."

Trump ‘just wants this problem to go away’: President desperate to get coronavirus ‘off his plate’

Published

President Donald Trump is desperate for the coronavirus problem to go away, and he doesn't exactly care how it happens.

According to New York Times reporter Annie Karni, sources are telling her that the biggest concern Trump has is more about the markets than the deaths of Americans from the virus.

"First, let's establish, this is a president who tried to change science with a Sharpie when it came to hurricane path prediction," said MSNBC host Brian Williams. "That picture lasts forever."

"Even his allies on Fox and his allies outside the White House were kind of channeling to that proverbial audience of one that this was a great opportunity to look presidential and to tell the facts," said Karni. The Donald Trump we saw out there in the briefing room was very casual, kind of left the facts to the other people that accompanied him out there. But he clearly publicly and privately just wants this problem to go away. He wants to downplay it. He thinks -- he has called people who are talking about fears about it alarmist. He doesn't want to be alarmist, and he's kind of holding on to any comment that makes it sound like this will naturally be a problem that is removed from his plate. That's what we saw publicly, and that's what he's been saying privately as well."

Seth Meyers: You know Trump isn’t the chief law enforcement officer because he couldn’t pass the physical

Published

on

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers warned that the United States is sliding into authoritarianism under President Donald Trump.

Sounding the alarm Wednesday evening, Meyers cited reports that Trump was making lists of disloyal people, purging them from their jobs, hiring unqualified cronies in top posts, and claiming he has the right to interfere in criminal cases.

While speaking to the press last week, Trump even announced that he's allowed to be involved in all criminal cases because he's the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. It's actually a title used for the attorney general.
