President Trump’s claim of former President Barack Obama wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign is about as believable as Reince Priebus’ head exploding from mixing Pop Rocks and Coke. However, Priebus having his own Scanners moment at some point over the next four years is not only more realistic; but likely.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus referred to last week’s CNBC debate as “a series of ‘gotcha’ questions, petty and meanspirited in tone, and designed to embarrass our candidates,” in a letter to Chairman of NBC News, Andrew Lack.
The RNC criticism against CNBC distracts from the real issue: the questions weren’t the problem, the answers were.
This past weekend, Country music star Hank Williams Jr. performed at the Iowa State Fair. You may recall last year that Williams’ theme song was dropped by ESPN’s Monday Night Football for making outrageous comments against President Obama on Fox News (where else?).
