Donald Trump has spent the entire day today ranting nonstop on Twitter about hallucinatory “deep state” nonsense, spelling out one of the broadest and most nonsensical conspiracy theories we’ve ever seen. At various points everyone from President Obama to Robert de Niro to Madonna made an appearance. Trump tried to get the #ObamaGate hashtag going, and that happened – but not for the reason Trump was hoping.
No one outside Trump’s drooling base believes any of the nonsense he’s rambling out. Everyone else just thinks Trump has totally lost what little he might have had left of his mind:
2-10 "We’re in great shape. We have 12 cases, 11 cases & many of them are in good shape now”
3-10 “we're doing a great job with it & it will go away, stay calm, it will go away"
4-10 “The germ has gotten so brilliant that the antibiotic can't keep up with it”

You total dimwits, Obama is not the President. 20.5M jobs lost by Trump. 80,000 people dead under Trump. 1.4M people infected under Trump. The only #ObamaGate is the gate Obama should've had built around the White House to keep this lousy schmuck Trump from ever stepping inside.
