Cowardly Trump Just Points the Finger - When It Comes to Accepting Responsiblity for Accusing Brits of Wiretapping

But That's What Cowards Do

Making the news recently was the attempt by Presss Sec Soviet* Sam Spicer to suggest that President Obama had used British intelligence to wiretap candidate Trump during the election. The Brits are pretty mad (letters to the Editor of the Times will flow) and when Trump was asked about it he responded thusly.

"In trying to justify Trump’s initial allegations from nearly two weeks ago, Spicer read press clips to reporters on Thursday, including one from Fox News that featured Judge Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge and a regular commentator for Fox News. 
Napolitano told Fox that three intelligence sources had said that Obama “went outside the chain of command” and used Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters so “there’s no American fingerprints on this.”
“We said nothing,” Trump said during Friday's news conference. “All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox.”
“So you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox,” the president added.
As he stood next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in their recent joint press briefing one could only guess that she was thinking, "Gee if guys like this had been in charge instead of Churchill and Roosevelt we would have won".

*So named because he more closely resembles a Soviet era propaganda artist than a real Press Sec.
