Trump Still at It

Trump has complained bitterly about newspapers citing no sources or “unnamed sources in their reporting. Following the old principle that he who complains the loudest is usually the most guilty, it is clear that Trump is indeed quite guilty of making assertions without evidence. Beginning with his silly birther movement, trump has made countless claims whose source seems to be nothing more than his own devious imagination.

Now he is saying Obama had his (Trump’s) phones tapped during the campaign. A president cannot do that, though Trump is not able to understand the limits of presidential power. Since he thinks like a tyrant, he assumes everyone else thinks that way, too. He is very, very wrong.

Oddly enough, Trump’s indifference to truth allows him to hold mutually exclusive ideas simultaneously and not even notice how hypocritical he is being. In this case, for example, he says he believes Obama ordered the illegal phone tapping. If he does in fact believe that, he must immediately order a criminal investigation. He won’t do that, of course, because he does know — or at least half his brain knows — that he is simply spewing nonsense. As usual.
