Trump didn't mean wiretapping when he tweeted about wiretapping

    This guy needs to explain in a little more detail what Trump means by 'wiretapping his phones'. If this does not mean listening in on phone calls perhaps he could explain what type of surveillance Trump was referring to?

    I honestly don't know what else wiretapping is if it's not listening/recording a conversation.

    Exactly scrap that, I want to see Trump explain it.

    To make matters worse he specified the location. "Wire tapping trump tower" so I'm really perplexed

    Trump doesn't understand the words he uses it seems.

    I'm tired of Trump apologists telling us what Trump really meant whenever he says something stupid. There is no Trump language that must be interpreted for the non Trump-speaking world.

    Spicer also said that Trump always spoke the truth "unless he was joking," but who the el can ever tell when he's joking!

    FTFY. ;)

    However, it's a good thing now that the Senate Judiciary Committee, let alone the entire Senate has called him out on it, relative to their holding public hearings on Russian intervention into the election, asking to put up or shut up.

    Either way, this will cause erosion of the trust of his administration, let alone his presidency; he'll be screwed either way, as this is the first step on his way out.

    Exactly. Reverse engineering I call it. He or someone in the administration says something dumb, they huddle together and reverse engineer it to somehow mean something else and attempt to clean it up. Over and over and over again. No creditably at all.

    I also hate when people say oh well, he's not a politician when excusing every dumb thing he does. Please. When does that excuse expire?

    Apparently we are all supposed to read minds and know what they "really" meant.

    I loved when one of the reporters asked Spicer when/how to determine when Trump tweets what he means or when it's open to interpretation. Spicer had no real answer lol

    He must have forgotten that he has the best words.

    He said he has them - but I don't think he said he uses them ;)

    Trump just states whatever he feels like at any given time, then justifies it later. I would have a small amount of sympathy if this was a willful misinterpretation (something I abhor), but his nonsense is quite specific.

    Actually, he is right. This (his tweet) is McCarthyism.

    I really wished I discovered that. It showed up on my Facebook feed and I was rolling on the floor when I read it. The web page's definition is a little more detailed. :eek:

    When you call someone a "sick" and "bad" person, that's impossible to simply brush off as a misinterpretation. Donald Trump is a menace to stability and peace. We will be lucky to get through the next four years with him as our leader.

    Apparently, a microwave can be used to surveil you. It's in the program menu just between potatoes and popcorn.

    Hopefully the Judiciary Committee makes him testify under oath, odds are then he will either commit perjury if he sticks with it or bring to light some sort of investigation that the FBI was working on. It wouldn't surprise me to find out that there was a FISA Court order to get at least the metadata so they know who is being called from Trump Tower.

    The only thing mine has between potatoes and popcorn is "pot brownies".
    Which could explain a lot.

    Wait, "pot roast" is in there, too. Meh, not explanatory. Delete.
