No such thing as Obamagate: Steve Schmidt says Trumps latest distraction doomed to fail




Former Republican strategist Steve Schmidt explained why President Donald Trump’s latest political stunt is doomed to fail.

Schmidt appeared Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he said Trump was trying to gin up an “Obamagate” scandal as a distraction from the rampant corruption in his own administration — such as the $1 million donation by stock-dumping Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s husband to a pro-Trump super PAC.....

“Just one thing, quickly, about Obamagate, which, of course, there is no such thing,” Schmidt said. “This was the cleanest administration in our lifetimes. There was no one indicted in the Obama administration for eight years. Nobody, zero people, so there is no such thing as Obamagate — it doesn’t exist. It is a figment of the fever swamps of right-wing media.”

“There’s Obama’s gate — I saw a picture on the internet of the gate in front of his house, Obama’s gate, but there is no such thing as Obamagate as a scandal,” he added. “Doesn’t exist. I don’t think the American people are going to buy it from the most corrupt president, running the most corrupt regime in American history.”

1. Mexico is now wanting to know, officially, about all of those illegal guns Obama sent south.

We need a senate investigation about that one too. No place left for Obama to hide.

12. Many of those lines are false.

At least two Obama administration personnel have been indicted.

Gen. Flynn and Greg Craig.

Both indicted.

Lefty needs to STFU about "distractions."
