Trump Lashes Out At Program, Then Calls For It To Be Reauthorized: ‘Get Smart!’


Donald Trump once again disproved his claim of being a ‘stable genius’ on Twitter by slamming the NSA’s warrantless surveillance program, then calling for it to be renewed. The House is scheduled to vote on Thursday over whether to reauthorize the controversial program. Even though the White House has called on the program to be reauthorized, Trump lashed out at the program early this morning.

You guessed it. Trump’s (temporary) opposition to the program has to do with the Russia investigation.

Trump’s allies have alleged that the FBI used a salacious opposition research memo detailing allegations of Trump-Russia collusion to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on his campaign and transition team.

Early this morning, Trump bashed the program after watching a Fox & Friends’ segment.

‘“House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.” This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?’

Trump went on to say that the program he lashed out at must be renewed. “We need it!” President Exclamation Mark tweeted.

“With that being said, I have personally directed the fix to the unmasking process since taking office and today’s vote is about foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land,” Trump wrote. “We need it! Get smart!”

Maybe Trump is trying to protect former security adviser Michael Flynn who was unmasked.  Trump has shortened his work-hours, calling it ‘executive time’ so that he can watch television and tweet more. This morning, he used his ‘executive time’ to lash out at the program he supports. It’s almost as if he has something to hide.
