What is it?
If you're like me, you follow Donald Trump on Twitter. He may be insufferable, but he is the President and fuel for articles. I don't get on Twitter often, mostly I just get on indirectly when I'm sharing something.
But on the odd day, I may open the app. And every time, I see some nonsense from the President that I have to research just to understand what he's talking about - because sometimes he just tweets one word in all caps. Like Obamagate.
It seems to focus on law enforcement actions taken at the end of Obama's presidency. Random thing to start going off about four years after the fact. These allegations came during a sudden Twitter storm of 120 tweets and retweets on Mother's Day.
Trump claims that Obama used his final weeks in office to target and sabotage the new administration. There's no evidence to back these claims.
These claims came after the Justice Department sought to drop the case against Michael Flynn, Trump's first White House national security adviser. Trump loudly called for the case to be dropped.
Is Trump using these sudden accusations as political fuel in his 2020 presidential campaign? I suppose he has to do something while grappling with the coronavirus pandemic that has killed over 80,000 Americans.
Or, is this something to do with Flynn?
A Washington Post reporter asked Trump to elaborate on his claim, and all Trump said was that it has been going on for a long time, and "you know what the crime is. The Crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers, except yours."
What does he want us to read? Yahoo News? Cause they seem to think that it's not a conspiracy.
