Trump: Obama Is Making Everyone Hate Me! Fact-Check: TRUE.
Clearly a sorcerer!
Donald Trump has HAD IT with Barack Obama's secretly being behind all the opposition to Donald Trump, and also all the leaks from everywhere in the Trump administration. Darn you, Barack Obama, would you please stop being such a sneaky puppetmaster? In a friendly interview on Fox & Friends Tuesday, Brian Kilmeade tossed out a softball question that contained its own answer, which was awfully polite of him. After noting that Trump has said he gets along well with Obama, Kilmeade wanted to know if Trump might agree that all his problems are the previous president's fault:

Why can't all news organizations ask such Fair and Balanced questions?
Kilmeade: It turns out [Obama's] organization seems to be doing a lot of the organizing for some of the protests a lot of Republicans are seeing around the country, and against you. Do you believe President Obama's behind it, and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents' code?
Trump: You know, I think he's behind it; I also think it’s politics, that's the way it is.
Having thus established beyond all doubt that the previous president is behind Americans' seeming dissatisfaction with Trump, Kilmeade went on to protest that George W. Bush never orchestrated anti-Obama protests, and Bill Clinton never did that to Dubya, prompting Trump to reflect on the particular troubles he faces. Trump said that you can never know what's "going on behind the scenes," but, yeah, sure, everything's Obama's fault:
I think President Obama’s behind it, because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group. You know, some of the leaks, which are really very serious leaks, because they’re very bad in terms of national security, but I also understand that’s politics. And in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics, and it will probably continue.
So there you go! As we already know, nobody really likes the ACA (except maybe a majority of people polled ), and if people turn up for protests to tell Republican members of Congress they'd rather keep their insurance, it's OK to ignore them, since those folks are clearly brought in by organized troublemakers.
We're certainly impressed by Barack Obama's astonishing ability to control people's minds, even after leaving office.
Anyway, Wonkette would like to take this opportunity to fact-check the "president's" statement that everyone hates him because of Obama, and that fact-check is TRUE.
Barack Obama's hypno-rays are even now taking control of your mind and telling you to contribute generously to help keep Yr Wonkette ad-free. You love Wonkette. It's much better than "Cats." You want to contribute again and again.
