Trump Accuses Obama

For years, Trump accused Obama of not being born in the USA and hence ineligible to run for president. Trump accused Obama of being a Muslim (a synonym for terrorist to the right). He accused Obama of being the literal founder of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). He never presented any evidence for his charges, just hinted that he had his sources. Suddenly, he announced he was withdrawing the birther accusation. He never apologised. He never explained why he was mistaken.

Now he is at it again, accusing Obama of tapping his phone. Again he presented no evidence. If the accusation were true, all he would have to do is present the wiretapping authorisation which he has legal access to.

Why is Trump doing this? He is creating a diversion away from his own scandal about colluding with the Russians to rig the election in his favour.

If Trump were not president, nobody would believe a thing he said. Look at his record. He lies so much he would be classified as mentally ill. It freaks people out to discover they elected a lunatic. So they go into denial and desperately seek excuses for his compulsive lies.

Why does Trump lie so compulsively, even when the lie can be easily debunked, even when there is no apparent benefit to the lie?

Once this blows over, I would hope Obama will sue Trump for $800 million for defamation for all four whoppers. Trump will have not a leg to stand on. All he could do is argue about the amount of the damages.
