So this morning, Trump continued his crusade to try to prove that the Obama had the FBI spy on him. After Andrew McCarthy’s Fox appearance this morning where he stated:
“There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign”
Trump proudly echoed the thing he saw on Fox, as usual:
“Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!”
So now the latest claim is that the Obama FBI had an informant inside Trump’s campaign to spy on him. And apparently it’s bigger than Watergate.
It’s amazing that McCarthy’s “probably no doubt” was taken as gospel by Trump, and no doubt we’re going to see some devout Trump monks parroting the claim going forward. Count on that.
The really ironic part is that during the Obama years, many on the right accused the “LSM” and various outlets of being Obama’s personal Pravda, yet here we have continued proof that Fox is LITERALLY Trump’s personal media mouthpiece and echo chamber, and Trump supporters are OK with it because something something #FakeNewsMedia something something #LSM.
