Here’s Why Trump’s Accusation That He Was Wiretapped Isn’t Crazy At All

President Trump is being called a conspiracy theorist Monday after saying reports about the Obama administration wiretapping him during his campaign are true.

On Twitter, Trump wrote: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

He added later, “Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process,” he continued. “This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Of course, Obama’s former White House officials are denying the wiretapping claims, according to CNN.

But media analyst Mark Dice explained very clearly on Sunday why Trump’s accusation isn’t a crazy conspiracy theory at all:
