Trump says he made Obama wiretapping accusation on 'a little bit of a hunch'

2 min read

So how often do you make incendiary, slanderous accusations against former presidents based on an inkling?

And would you do it multiple times (see: bullshit birtherism)?

As we all remember, Donald Trump made a wild, completely unsupported accusation against Barack Obama back in March 2017, and now he’s admitting he did so “on a little bit of a hunch.” 


Seriously. Fuck this fragrant bundle of marsupial shit.


On Thursday night, Trump finally admitted during a 45-minute interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity that he made the allegation based on “a little bit of a hunch.” Trump also expressed surprise at how his baseless accusation had blown up “like you’ve never seen.”

“I don’t know if you remember, a long time ago, very early on I used the word wiretap, and I put in quotes, meaning surveillance, spying you can sort of say whatever you want,” Trump told Hannity.

“Now I understand why, because they thought two years ago when I said that just on a little bit of a hunch and a little bit of wisdom maybe, it blew up because they thought maybe I was wise to them,” he continued. “Or they were caught. And that’s why. ’Cuz if they weren’t doing anything wrong it would’ve just gotten by, nobody would’ve cared about it.”

He added: “It was pretty insignificant, I thought when I said it, and it’s pretty amazing.”

Yeah, it is pretty amazing. It’s even more amazing that he apparently still thinks he was right. 

I’ve got a “little bit of a hunch” that Donald Trump is just an elaborate inflatable sumo suit with a drunk homunculus inside who spends 12 hours a day operating the suit’s controls and another 12 drinking Drambuie and playing Mario Kart.

Like I said, it’s just a hunch.

Donald Trump has spent the bulk of his adult life suing and threatening to sue other people. Barack Obama is far too dignified to sue Trump for slander, but I kind of wish he would.

Fabulous!” “Hysterically funny!” “Cathartic!” These are just a few of the many accolades from readers of Aldous J. Pennyfarthing’s Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump. And now, the long-awaited sequel is here! Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump is hot off the digital press and available as a $2.99 download from Amazon. Buy there, or be square.
