President Donald Trump shook things up this week when he tweeted about former President Barack Obama wiretapped his office at Trump Tower during the campaign.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

The way he put wire-tapping in quotes is weird as well.
Naturally, one of Trump’s surrogates, Kellyanne Conway, side-stepped the claim when asked about it. She ridiculously claimed that microwaves can turn into cameras and Trump is being watched that way.
“There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways, and microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. We know that this is just a fact of modern life.”
Press Secretary Sean Spicer was also playing damage control after the Trump’s stupid tweet. He said:
“I think there’s no question that the Obama administration, that there were actions about surveillance and other activities that occurred in the 2016 election. The President used the word wiretaps in quotes to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities.”
This is just hilariously sad! We all know that there is no such thing as microwaves that turn into cameras. They are just making things up to excuse Trump’s stupidity.
