Attached is a letter to the editor that I posted today to our local on-line newspaper.
It is important that we continually air items of Donald Trump's unfitness to be President. To sit silently only reinforces his supporters.
Feel free to use the entire post or any part in your own resistance publishing.
Donald Trump put on his big boy trousers, appeared in front of Congress and read a prepared speech off a teleprompter without veering off into some conspiracy theory. Republicans thought it was marvelous.
Then on Saturday Trump tweeted: ‘Terrible! Just found out Obama had me wire tapped in Trump Tower just before victory.’
White House staff are now running around trying to claim that the President is privy to information no one else has. The FBI and other national security groups absolutely deny the allegation.
So, where does ‘The President’ get his information from?
On Thursday night the far right conspiracy theorist Mark Levin claimed on his pod cast that President Obama may have used surveillance techniques to gather information on Donald Trump during the election.
This was picked up by Alex Jones on his radio show.
Alex Jones is a right-wing conspiracy nut that has claimed that the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre didn’t happen, but was a government TV production staged as an argument against gun control. Alex has also claimed that the Oklahoma City bombing and the 9-11 attack were orchestrated by the U.S. government, and that the U.S. moon landing was a fake.
Then on Friday Breitbart News carried the conspiracy.
Breitbart News is a platform for the alt-right white supremacist organization formally run by Steve Bannon – Trump’s chief strategist. Among other things Breitbart News has claimed that President Obama was a Muslim born in Kenya, and that Hillary Clinton was involved in running a child sex ring operating in the back of a pizza shop in Washington D.C.
Then on Saturday morning it was wake up and tweet time for the President of the United States; accusing a former President of committing a felony by illegally taping his phones at Trump Tower.
Trump has been known to skip formal government intelligence briefings; I think we know where the President of the United States gets his information.
