Trump Calls Mike Flynn a Hero, Suggests Everyone Involved In ‘Obamagate’ Should Be Jailed For 50 Years

During an interview with Fox New’s Maria Bartiromo aired Thursday, President Donald Trump called disgraced Gen. Michael Flynn a “hero” and accused former President Barack Obama of committing the “greatest political crime in the history of our country.” He also suggested that everyone involved in “Obamagate” deserves to be jailed for “50 years.”

Trump has been pushing the idea that Obama spied on his campaign to hurt his presidency. He has called on a Senate committee to call Obama to testify and claimed that those involved in the “political crime” against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn deserve a 50-year sentence.

Trump spoke with Fox Business after information declassified by loyalist Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell revealed officials who “unmasked” fired national security advisor Mike Flynn.

“It was the greatest political crime in the history of our country,” Trump told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “If I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago, and I’m talking with 50-year sentences. It is a disgrace what’s happened.”

Trump Spent Memorial Day Tweeting About Golf, Comparing Himself To Obama And Threatening a Democratic Governor

President Donald Trump spent most of the Memorial Day on Twitter defending himself from charges that he was golfing as the U.S. neared the horrific 100,000 coronavirus death milestone.

Trump, who frequently attacked then-president Barack Obama for golfing, has spent more than $130 million in taxpayers’ money on golfing trips. And he couldn’t take the heat after the campaign of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden released an ad pointing out his golfing trip as the COVID-19 death toll mounts.

On Sunday, he responded to the ad, comparing himself (favorably, of course) to Obama:

On Monday, Memorial Day, he jumped on Twitter again, this time blaming the “truly deranged” media for supposedly elevating the story. “[Obama] also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man,” Trump said. “Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!”

Trump also threatened to pull the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, citing North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s “shutdown mood” and noncommitment to saying whether or not a convention for tens of thousands of people in the state’s largest city will be able to take place in August.

Aside from defending his hobbies, Trump’s Memorial Day weekend of tweeting included retweeting several posts by a former congressional candidate with a history of making racist and sexist remarks about black women.
