"Obama Administration Rushed to Preserve Intelligence of Russian Election Hacking" - NY Times 3/1/17

Was this the report that Mark Levin and Breitbart News later bastardized and distorted that led to this tweet:

'How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!'?

I think that's how these folks operate. They take an actual fact-based, well-researched story and re-write it to suit their purposes. They then pass the new and altered version to their uninformed masses, who take it at face value because it corresponds to the overall narrative they've heard on FOX and Rush and the rest of the Propaganda Perverts.

Trump is stupid, disinterested, illiterate and woefully uneducated. He's easy prey to the brainwashers that surround him. If he had read the NY Times story - and that is highly doubtful - it wouldn't surprise me in the least that his takeaway would have been that Obama had wiretapped him. Add the sinister involvement of Bannon, and that conclusion seems inevitable under the circumstances.

In case anyone wondered where in the hell did he come up with THAT...and why no one is willing to talk about it further. Alternative facts don't hold up well under scrutiny.

1. Maybe it has something to do with the last sentence in the 6th paragraph of another NYT report, viz:

"One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House."

2. If I'm reading that correctly

Obama didn't necessarily "order" the wiretap, but he was privy to all or some of the intelligence reports.
