President Obama’s spokesman, Kevin Lewis, issued the following response to Trump’s accusation (via Buzzfeed):
A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.
Anyone catch the shade there? It blots out the sun.
ETA: Not that I’m saying this will happen, but it would be sweet karmic justice if an article by some drooling loon at Breitbart goaded Trump into rage-tweets that set events in motion that ultimately unravel his administration. I’ll wear a colander on my head for a week in homage to the Flying Spaghetti Monster should this occur.
