Donald Trump has started a whole ‘Obamagate’ trend in which his mindless supporters blindly attack the 44th president, accusing him of entrapping Trump while he was still campaigning for the presidency in 2016. This after reports emerged that Obama had placed sanctions on Russia after finding out that the country had interfered with the election.
Trump somehow spun that into something ridiculous that neither he, or his flock of followers, can explain in detail. Trump went on Fox Business for an interview with Fox Host Maria Bartiromo, and when asked about Obamagate, Trump had a hard time clarifying.
Trump said this:
“If I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago — and I’m talking with 50-year sentences. it is a disgrace what’s happened. This is the greatest political scam, hoax, in the history of our country.”
Bartiromo naturally agreed with the president’s nonsensical whine, agreeing that the Russia “hoax” was a massive blunder in America’s political history.
The best part of the Trump-Bartiromo interview is when she asks him to explain "the biggest scandal in history" and Trump can't, he just reverts back to the FBI lovers bit pic.twitter.com/NROSopSMrl

“People should be going to jail for this stuff and hopefully a lot of people are going to have to pay. No other president should have to go through. I’ll tell you, Gen. [Michael] Flynn and others are heroes, heroes, because what’s happened to them — they weren’t after Gen. Flynn, they wanted him to lie about me, make up a story, and with few exceptions, nobody did that.”
“There were many people — I watched K.T. McFarland the other day,” Trump added, referring to Flynn’s former deputy national security adviser. “I watched where she was knock, knock, FBI, you know, the FBI. Okay? This was all [Barack] Obama, this was all [Joe] Biden. These people were corrupt, the whole thing was corrupt, and we caught them. We caught them, and what you saw just now, I watched Biden yesterday, could barely speak. He was on ‘Good Morning America,’ right, and he said he didn’t know anything about it, and now it just gets released right after he said that, it gets released that he was one of the unmaskers, meaning he knew everything about it. So he lied to your friend George Stephanopoulos.”
Bartiromo, of course, agreed with the president that the claims against Obama were deeply serious. She then asked the president to elaborate on the alleged scandal so that Americans could understand.
That’s when Trump went off on an even nuttier rant that made no sense whatsoever:
“It’s very simple. Even before I got elected, you remember the famous — the two lovers, right? [Peter] Strzok and [Lisa] Page — the insurance policy. That means if I won, they’re going to try and take me out. That’s all it means, very simple. It’s an insurance policy. ‘So she’s going to win, isn’t she darling, isn’t she going to win.’”
People on Twitter were not amused by Trump’s antics, and they let him know in the comment thread of the tweet. You can see those reactions below:
