If you were wondering WTF "Obamagate" is - Fox News is on it

https://www.foxnews.com/

Basically the entire front page except for bits about Dr. Fauci and Bryan Adams.

1. Trump is chomping at the bit to lock anybody up.

Hillary, Obama, Andrew McCabe, James Comey. Whomever.

considering that 41% of the population believes everything they "report".

9. Not me. But you go ahead.

It is opposite world over there. Every story does not have another side or a spin to it. Facts are lost at fox and I don't need anymore reminders about what they are saying. I recognize evil when i see it. We will close or temper all that down soon.

12. The Fox message gets disseminated all over the internet,

primarily through social media, because most Trumpanzies can only read memes.

I think it's folly to pay not attention and be prepared to shoot it all down.

21. We have won pretty much every election since 16...we don't need to pay attention to the racist

fucks at Fox...just keep on keeping on. Let's not give them more power by listening to and echoing everything they say or fearing them either...their numbers of listeners go down every year. How about some positive posts about how we are likely to beat the shit out of the Republicans;dirty donnies days are numbered and so are a number of Republican Senate and House members.

Twitterverse is now suspect after 16. Don't add to their numbers by keeping it in play...

You would think the Trump and his minions would know that but apparently not.

13. I noticed in one article the timeline already shifted

The BIG meeting if Obama Comey and Yates wasn’t until January- now the story is that it was all just to HURT or weaken the Trump admin.

14. a brief synopsis would be nicer than

giving them clicks.

I don't say that to be snide or hurtful. It's just that they use those numbers to tout how popular they are.

Thanks

15. Basically it's al speculation and conspiracy to fill air time

in these difficult times when there’s nothing for them to speak about. This will be the genesis for a whole new set of books to be cranked out and sold to the cult. It seems to be an continuation of the Deep State industry.

18. Brief Synopsis

It's all fucking bullshit that the MSM will treat as if they are investigating the Lindbergh kidnapping in order to avoid having Retrumplicans say bad things about them.

Soon, you'll know 10 times more about this bullshit than any of a thousand Retrumplican scandals.

Hate Radio will get their Yahoo's to threaten boycotts against News stations for not covering this "most important story in history".

Democrats who appear on any News programs will be asked about it relentlessly...so will Retrumplicans, who will NEVER be pressed to comment on any Donnie Shit for Brains corruption.

Some "Democrats" will demand this "scandal" be looked into, or complain that it's just proof that "both parties are the same".

Some will make sure that you know that they can't support Biden, because he's just as corrupt as the orange dipshit and will announce their plans to vote for a 3RD party Putin frontend candidate.

100s of Focus Groups in Dumbfuckistan Murika will be empanelled to say this is the most important story in our nation's history.

Every negative story about Donnie Dollhands will begin with "what about obamagate".

Lather, Rinse, Repeat

Oh, and you know those Hate Radio dipshits that will demand boycotts of News organizations until they cover this story? Well Democrats can't do the same to Hate Radio because 1ST Amendment...or something...

That's a brief synopsis.

23. Essentially

The allegation is the FISA court was used to groundlessly investigate the Trump Campaign, find whatever kind of dirt can be found, and then later to interfere with the transition to the Drumpf Administration.

Essentially, the allegation is to accuse certain people in the Obama Administration of doing what Nixon did with bumbling burglars, but instead using the FISA court and fellow travelers in the FBI.

There were some extremely troubling acts done by lone individuals with axes to grind, but they are generally "never-Trump" Republicans, not Democrats.

The goal is, of course, to smear Joe Biden with the bad acts of these other individuals.

If I was advising the Biden campaign, I'd tell them to not defend these idiots, as it makes you look complicit in their bad behavior. I'd be shocked and throw their asses right under the bus where they belong.

19. Interesting timing! I did look (thanks for the link) and it appears Fox was primed, loaded and ready

for Trumpy to say "Obamagate" and they were off to the races the very next day.

Coincidence? I think not. It's a virtual conspriracy as they had all these quotes, talking heads, long dissertations and more ready and just waiting for the Stable Genisu to drop the green flag and start the race with plenty of anti-Obama screeds.

Expect more and worse.

25. Yeah it's been bubbling up and they were clearly ready for it

I’d guess this was worked up regardless of what happened to Flynn. Even if his two admissions of guilty held up they were ready with this.

The funniest part to me is “Obamagate”. A. They didn’t learn their lesson with OBAMACARE. B. Gates are named after places or events. We don’t have “Nixongate”. I guess his entire existence is a crisis.

20. "Obamagate" is Trump's weird way of shielding himself against prosecution after he leaves office.

Using Trump's typically tortured logic, he probably believes if the DOJ launches a criminal investigation into Obama's actions as president, and Democrats object publicly that it's just "a political vendetta," Trump will then be able to claim any crminal investigation into his own shady activities is also political payback.

Trump just writes the one word believes it to his magic elves between up the details. Those are some well-disciplined thralls in his propaganda mill.

When I first read it, I thought it said why Obama is black, and I was thinking ummmm, genetics? Then I reread the title and realized my mistake

30. Obamagate has about as much basis in fact as Little Miss Muffet

It only appeals to Republicans with an intellectual level of those who take Miss Muffet's tale as a serious arachnid warning.
