Ben Rhodes like his boss, Obama is like an old chewed piece of gum you have trouble scraping off you

Ben Rhodes, former senior advisor to President Barack Obama, came to his former boss’s defense Saturday after President Donald Trump accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in the later stages of last year’s presidential campaign.

Quote tweeting Trump’s original tweet, Rhodes fired back at Trump, “No President can order a wiretap.”

“Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you,” he added.

The tweet went viral quickly amassing more than 32,000 retweets and more than 53,000 “likes” by Saturday afternoon.

However, there was a large section of Twitter, particularly the conservative users, that simply weren’t buying Rhodes comments — given Obama’s history of wiretapping. Many were quick to point out the fact that Fox News correspondent James Rosen was infamously wiretapped in 2013 when the Justice Department was investigating government leaks. The Associated Press was also wiretapped in relation to the same investigation.
