Chilling -- DT dialog on Obamagate (minutes before the meltdown 5/11/2020)

Here is the transcript from NY Magazine. It speaks for itself.

Silly me. I thought The Manchurian Candidate was fiction.

https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/05/obamagate-as-explained-by-president-trump.html


Rucker: In one of your Motherís Day tweets, you appeared to accuse President Obama of Ďthe biggest political crime in American history, by farí ó those were your words. What crime exactly are you accusing President Obama of committing, and do you believe the Justice Department should prosecute him?

Trump: Obamagate. Itís been going on for a long time. Itís been going on from before I even got elected, and itís a disgrace that it happened, and if you look at whatís gone on, and if you look at now, all this information thatís being released ó and from what I understand, thatís only the beginning ó some terrible things happened, and it should never be allowed to happen in our country again. And youíll be seeing whatís going on over the next, over the coming weeks but I, and I wish youíd write honestly about it but unfortunately you choose not to do so.

Rucker: What is the crime exactly that youíre accusing him of.

Trump: You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers, except yours.


UPDATE: this thread describes "Obamagate" as a meme: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213426361

13. Don't ignore Barr

What the illiterate moron in the White House was trying to say is that he has his Roy Cohn making shit up at the DOJ. The hope is that John Durham will play along with Barr and produce just enough innuendo to fog reality. And even if Durham finds absolutely nothing, Barr will twist the report worse than he twisted Mueller's report. And all the while, Fox Noise is amplifying the lies.

6. He is literally delusional

If someone came into an ER rambling like this, they would be put into observation.

He has always been unwell but he is now disconnected from reality. What mentally balanced person would ever talk like this?

15. The translation is this:

"I have not bothered to prepare for what would be an inevitable question, so I will dodge and weave until I have an opening to run away."

18. Exactly - he cannot articulate on the fly

We've seen this time and again in the last 4 years. Chump just makes shit up whenever he can't - or won't - answer a direct question. Any true politician prepares in advance of going in front of reporters, because he realizes that questions will be thrown at him and he has to have something ready. It's called "getting the rap down" which is another way of saying they're prepared for the press conference.

Chump refuses to do that! He just gets frustrated and angry at the questioner, makes up some bullshit and stomps out of the presser. Another tactic is to scream some BS into a microphone while the helicopter blades are revving up, then go jump into the copter and fly off. Nobody could hear what he said but it doesn't matter, he didn't say anything.

I'm beginning to think that part of his problem is difficulty in hearing. Maybe he's going deaf, I don't know. I think he has trouble hearing at least some of the reporters' questions. So he'll just talk about something else entirely unrelated rather than say he didn't hear or understand the question.

She would hear the incorrect thing and go on and on.

20. Exactly!

That's why I think he might be hard of hearing, but too vain to admit it.

21. Half of his reasons for not wearing a mask has to do with his vanity.

"Macho men doesn't need no pussy masks", he says. This is followed by a last minute check at a mirror to see if his make up is even.

8. This is his normal pattern

Especially how he does when he knows really bad stuff on him is about to be exposing him. He accuses others without evidence , and just manufactures BS to claim with because he knows something on him is about to come out showing he's a criminal. He got bad news , so he will again like he did with his birther claims promote propaganda without any facts , again, and to distract. When he starts in a reporter needs to ask him did Obama launder money for putin, or take payoffs from other leaders for policies, then see what he says . Reporters need to quit being so soft on trump , and ask damming questions. He's desperate now and will attack all the former presidents claiming they are all criminals , because he will be exposed as a criminal soon. Maybe ask him again if he had proof Obama wasn't born in this country, then make him admit he is , again , to remind people he's a serial liar. He talked the same way claiming he did then too. Barr will manufacture something for trump justice , again, and that's total BS.

Damn you, Obama! This is disgraceful!"

12. This might be Trumps news source

President Obama was in on plot to 'frame' Flynn, attorney says | Fox Noise 10 May 2020
Former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn's lead attorney accused top officials of orchestrating a plot to frame her client, insisting that former President Barack Obama himself was in on it.

14. This is reminiscent of the so-called "Obama Scandals" of 2011

If few remember them, it is because they were a completely made-up Republican scam. I think we all know how THAT works by now. Pure fiction, run on Fox Noise and National Hate Radio. A few right wing rags and blogs, too, but nowhere that reported factual news, and with good reason. There was no such thing. Completely made up by Republican propagandists, and they vanished back into the thin air from whence they sprang when their little tactic went nowhere.

Obama was so clean, they couldn't stand it, and, frankly, they couldn't UNDERstand it, since such a presidency was a phenomenon unknown to them.

And so now, with their corruption under much more scrutiny than they feel comfortable with, they need a distraction. But with whom? Their attacks on the Governor and Lt. Governor of Virginia went nowhere. Tara Reade is going nowhere. They got lucky with Al Franken only because no one expected it. After what happened to Al, we ALL expected it, and sure enough, they didn't disappoint, did they? But anyone outside of people who watch Fox Noise 24/7 and actually believe what they hear--and I'm talking about the Clorox injecters--you can't tell me that anyone with an IQ in at least 2 digits will take "Obamagate" seriously.

16. I am happy for Trump to be focusing

on Obama. Obama is not running for his office. Perhaps the best thing that Obama could do for Biden would be to keep pushing Trump's buttons.

Trump's attacks on Obama are not impressing anyone other than his core supporters anyway, and they are already full-up on hatred.
