During a pandemic that has killed tens of thousands of Americans and counting - and Black people at three times the rate of whites - President Trump is trying to keep everyone distracted. Instead of focusing on the crisis, he’s bashing his predecessor yet again.
What’s his issue this time?
What Trump has dubbed “Obamagate” is a conspiracy that the Obama Administration illegally worked to sabotage the incoming Trump Administration. Can he back that up with proof? Well... he tried and the result ain’t pretty.
Donald Trump is saying that “the greatest political crime” in U.S. history was the Obama Administration's pursuit of Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser.
Mind you Flynn pled guilty, TWICE, to lying to the FBI about Russian contact, yet Trump claims that Obama’s pursuit of criminal charges against Flynn were improper.
Turns out the claim that prosecuting Flynn was an overreaction needed to be debunked as well! It gets worse.
Now, Obamagate is Trump’s latest distraction and attempt to go after the former Black president who he has always despised. The timing of this is concerning.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is raging while Trump’s conspiracy distracts from mass deaths. Obamagate is a non-story, a fake distraction. The real conspiracy is Black deaths being normalized and buried.
