Sean Spicer Admits Trump is an Incompetent Joke Who’s Misleading Americans (Video)

The unprecedented absurdity constantly surrounding the Trump administration could really all be summed up with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments Monday concerning his boss’s claim that President Obama had “Trump Tower illegally wiretapped.”



“I think there’s no question that the Obama administration, that there were actions about surveillance and other activities that occurred in the 2016 election,” Spicer said during Monday’s press briefing. “The President used the word wiretaps in quotes to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities.”

No kidding there were “actions about surveillance” during the 2016 election — Russia launched a cyber attack against the United States to help elect Donald Trump! Clearly, U.S. intelligence officials were (and still are) conducting investigations concerning a foreign government attacking a U.S. election to help elect the most pro-Russian candidate in history.

But that’s not what Trump said in his tweets.

During that Saturday tirade, Trump literally said “Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower.” He also specifically mentioned President Obama in all three of his tweets, calling it a “NEW LOW,” asking “How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones,” and compared it to “Nixon/Watergate,” while calling him “sick.”

This was not a generalized statement by Trump about on-going U.S. surveillance during the 2016 election. He accused Obama of illegally ordering Trump Tower and his phones to be “wiretapped.”

I know I’ve asked this a lot, but I feel as if it’s a question that could be asked every single day: How stupid does a person have to be to believe these clowns?

We’re being told by the White House press secretary that Trump didn’t actually say exactly what he said. This is a perfect example of the level of ridiculous dishonesty we’ve seen from Trump throughout his life, especially during his political career. He’s someone who’ll deny something is true even when there’s indisputable evidence that what he’s denying actually happened.

Here we have concrete evidence of exactly what he said, meant, and who it was directed at now being spun as “Oh, no, he just meant surveillance in general. He didn’t specifically mean Obama wiretapped Trump Tower” — even though that’s literally what he said!

This is a level of stupid that I honestly can’t even grasp. Not just how absurd it is for this to be the White House official statement, but that there are millions of his supporters who actually buy this nonsense.

And here we are, well over a week since he made these accusations, and Trump has yet to comply with Congress’s request to provide the evidence he’s claimed he has showing where his wiretapping accusation is true. Furthermore, the Justice Department is asking for “more time” to provide evidence that, according to Trump’s own words, he was given back on March 4th.



Common sense tells us that if Trump had this evidence, and Congress has been asking for it, he would have turned it over days ago. There’s absolutely no rational reason why Trump would withhold this supposed “evidence,” let alone ask for an extension to turn it over to Congress, unless it doesn’t actually exist and he’s desperately trying to buy time.

The truth about all of this couldn’t be more obvious. On March 4th, Trump read a Brietbart article based on comments made by right-wing conspiracy radio host Mark Levin claiming President Obama ordered illegal surveillance of Trump Tower. Even though Levin’s comments weren’t based on any actual evidence, and Breitbart didn’t cite any themselves, Trump incompetently took to Twitter (as he often does) to rant about something without any actual proof other than these fact-less articles.

Donald Trump hasn’t presented any evidence to Congress, or the public, for one very simple reason: None exists because what he accused Obama of doing never actually happened.

That means he owes the American public, and especially Barack Obama, a public apology for not only blatantly lying to all of us, but for pushing a slanderous false accusation against the former president.

What Spicer’s comments said to me was that the administration was fully admitting that Donald Trump is a joke no one should ever take seriously.
