Trump keeps conspiracy claims coming
“President Trump’s conspiracy theories arrive with a bang and leave with a whimper,” said Max Boot. The most recent case is the faux”unmasking scandal”–the promise that members of the Obama administration”did something nefarious” when they asked for the identity of the Trump campaign advisor, Michael Flynn, who was captured in surveillance transcripts speaking to the Russian ambassador about U.S. sanctions. Trump has issued countless tweets demanding jail terms for those accountable, with”the right-wing outrage machine” echoing his calls for prosecutions, calling it a much bigger scandal than Watergate. You will hear no retraction from these”who shamelessly flogged” that the unmasking scandal–they have”just moved on to pushing other phony scandals.” Last week, Trump retweeted”lunatic claims” the President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden”might have experienced SEAL Team 6 killed” and that Osama bin Laden is still still alive. In addition, he gave comfort and aid to QAnon nuts, praising them for opposing pedophilia. Trumpworld’s goal is to”flooding the zone with s–,” deflecting attention from Trump’s real scandals with a barrage of”crazy accusations.” It is pure McCarthyism.
