“White House officials have reportedly said they have no idea where President Donald Trump got his information that his phones were wire-tapped by Barack Obama.

Mr Trump made his latest explosive claims on Twitter without offering supporting evidence, saying he was the target of a Watergate-style plot and his New York office was wiretapped during the election campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Two former senior US officials dismissed Mr Trump’s accusations out of hand as “just nonsense” and “just wrong”, with one telling CNN categorically: “This did not happen…”

“Shame on President Trump for even considering this.”

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has a warning to Donald Trump, if he dares to prosecute marijuana smokers in states where it’s legal: “Not on my watch.”

The stern message came in a commentary Ventura wrote for CNBC.com, where he takes the president to task for even considering trampling state laws.

“It is completely wrong and unethical ? not to mention unconstitutional ? to reverse state law just because you feel like it,” Ventura writes. “Shame on President Trump for even considering this…”

“As is custom in the United States, we wake up, yawn, remember that it’s 2017, grab our phones, and then, bleary-eyed, go on Twitter to see what messages our president has hastily tapped that will rule our lives for the next 24 hours.

And on Saturday, like clockwork, President Donald Trump was at it again, tweeting about “wire tapping.”

The president appears to believe that former President Barack Obama—a favorite target of Trump’s—had directed a “wire tapping” operation at Trump Tower in New York City, where Trump spent the majority of his time before he moved south to Washington, D.C…”

Trump’s World Increasingly Shaped by Fox News, and Fox by Trump article from Bloomberg News. –
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-03-02/trump-s-world-increasingly-shaped-by-fox-news-and-fox-by-trump

Trump’s delusional fairy tales fueling and fueled by Fox News, whose ratings have increased, indicating that Fox is busily misinforming more viewers:

“Donald Trump’s TV viewing habits have changed since he became president — networks he views as hostile have fallen out of favor, Fox News is in heavy rotation — creating an unusually close relationship between a president and a news outlet.

Long a voracious consumer of cable news, Trump has cut back how much he watches CNN and MSNBC in recent weeks, having sworn off the latter network’s “Morning Joe” after criticism from its hosts, according to a senior White House aide privy to the president’s viewing habits.

Instead, the president now spends hours some mornings watching Fox News, switching occasionally to CNBC for business headlines, along with a daily diet of newspapers and press clippings, said the official, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. On the evenings when he doesn’t have a dinner or briefing, Trump will spend most of his TV-viewing time watching Fox News shows hosted by Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity, the aide said.

Trump has heartily endorsed Fox News on Twitter and in various public statements, and some of its programming has even influenced his communications with the public, mostly through tweets. Several examples have emerged of Trump apparently seeing something on Fox — crime rates in Chicago, an incident in Sweden — only to tweet about it moments later…”

“At a health-related business expo three years ago, when Donald Trump was asked for the No. 1 trait he looks for in employees, he replied with a single word: loyalty.

It’s an attribute he’s valued throughout his corporate career and, to varying degrees, during his dive into electoral politics.

But as president, Trump is now learning the limits of leaning on loyalty while overseeing a sprawling federal government bureaucracy that is too massive to manage or ensure total trust…”
