The President really is an idiot.
President Donald Trump on Friday suggested his administration bore no responsibility for promoting a Fox News analyst’s baseless claim that British intelligence agency GCHQ spied on Trump for former President Barack Obama.
In a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a German reporter asked Trump about the Fox analyst’s claim, which has been denied by GCHQ.
“We said nothing. All we did was quote a certain, very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television,” Trump responded. “I didn’t make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox. And so you shouldn’t be talking to me. You should be talking to Fox. Okay?”
