The Perils Of Fox Viewing

Apparently, it wasn't enough for paranoid sociopath and pathological liar Donald "Rump" Trump to falsely accuse former President Obama of "wiretapping" his phones at Trump Tower, a claim which has now been determined by the Rethuglican and Democratic leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees to be a lie. When Rump's pathetic designated liar, Sean "Spicy" Spicer, no doubt at Rump's direction, read a fake news story from Fux "News" buffoon "Judge" Andrew Napolitano about the British intelligence agency Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) being enlisted by Obama to wiretap the deranged Rump, you knew that feces would hit fan.

Sure enough, the GCHQ, the UK's signal intelligence organization equivalent to the National Security Agency in the U.S., fired back in a stinging rebuke to the delusional Trumpers:
"Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct 'wiretapping' against the then president-elect are nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored."
That rebuke prompted a rare apology from Rump's staff, including Spicer and new National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster. The government of the UK said that it had been assured that the allegation would not be repeated.

Napolitano claimed that "intelligence sources" had told him the GCHQ had wiretapped Trump Towers, leading one to speculate who fed him the disinformation. One likely source is the rogue group of FBI agents in the New York City office, which had spurred the late October dirty trick implying that Secretary Clinton had more damaging e-mails yet to be revealed as a result of  their investigations into slimy Anthony Weiner's e-mails. That would also implicate deranged hate goblin Rudy "Noun, Verb, 9-11" Giuliani in the false story, since he appeared to be a link between the Rump campaign and the rogue FBI officials in New York, and continues to maintain contact with them.

This should be a large red flag about Rump's ceaseless consumption of  Fux's unfiltered garbage. The common thread seems to be Fux's sources lie, then Fux lies, and then Rump lies (although we've seen that he needs no assistance in lying on his own).  Until now, it was confined to U.S. politics; now, they've falsely smeared the U.S.'s closest ally.
