Today, I was asked on Facebook, "one of my questions is how much was known to the Obama administration and what did they do, if anything?"
I responded with the below commentary. I am posting it here in its raw form, unedited. Do feel to respond below and I apologize for any spelling/grammatical issues that do exist as this was written as a Facebook reply with stream of consciousness to quickly summarize and to give an overview:
Calling it doublespeak is perhaps way too kind in explaining Donald Trump’s latest revelation.
Truth always outs. It was Obama, not the Russians, who put Donald Trump in the White House. The Washington Post, which detailed the ex-President’s plot to elect Trump, just whipped up a perfectly fake alibi to the persistent, scurrilous, allegations that Trump took unfair advantage to secure the Oval Office: “He didn’t care, why should I?”
Did Barack Obama tap Donald Trump’s phone?
If so, therefore, is Donald Trump correct that the former President is either a "bad man", or "sick", as he tweeted?
Right now, my response, until we know for sure, is, who knows what the Obama administration did, or did not do?
There is a constant in action-adventure movies that just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. It’s a rule that applies to the Trump administration, too. The fire in the kindling that has built up around the posts in the President’s brain has turned into a conflagration so great that even Smokey the Bear has left the forest.

The American Democracy is the first experiment in citizen control of government in two thousand years. Since that time, the age of democracy has arisen. Over the past two hundred years more nations have turned to democracy than any other form of government.

Obama ends on high note
President Barack Obama is ending his two-term reign as president on a high note. His job approval rating is at 58%, which puts him among the highest of modern-day presidents.
Much is being said about Donald Trump’s new press secretary—his name is twitter. Some love it and join our president-elect in the optimism for the future.
Then, there’s others who have take a different view. The media goes ballistics and becomes hysterical every time the digital communications future commander in chief goes into operations. Although Trump and his followers believe he is the man of the future, some believe the leaders of our past would be stone-faced with embarrassment over his emotional twitter tirades.
Though Donald Trump isn’t sure if a guy in Jersey hacked the Democrats, or not, U.S. intelligence services are confident it was the Russians trying to help #anyonebutclinton. It’s not like Trump needed the help, as it turns out, because the Clinton campaign’s deplorable blunders doomed Hillary, even before Bernie was tossed out of the lifeboat with his hands still bound. Notwithstanding, it boggles the imagination that Russia would set out to elect a rightist Republican as the next U.S. President, but as the Nobel Poet Laureate Bob Dylan, said, “For the times they are a-changin.’”
Donald Trump is not even in the White House and he is already saving jobs. Within the past few weeks, he has helped secure jobs at an automobile factory in Kentucky and at a Carrier plant in Indiana. In fact, Carrier was threatening to take 2,000 jobs to Mexico, but will now retain 1,100 jobs in Indiana, mostly due to Trump’s deal making abilities.
