President Donald Trump tweeted this morning:
When will Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd and @NBCNews start talking about the Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL and stop with the Fake Trump/Russia story?

“Surveillance scandal”? Former Obama Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes tried to school Trump this way:
There is no Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL even when you capitalize the words. https://t.co/DGnUJDahC7

Yeah, maybe Rhodes isn’t the right “messenger” for this particular topic or any other for that matter:
Good thing for Ben no one remembers Prism or James Rosen. https://t.co/45I94y3EEK

April Fools… ( ps Ben forgot about James Rosen for STARTERS) https://t.co/qxq9MwaYq5

@brhodes You can keep saying that Ben. But no matter how many times you do. The paperwork doesn't lie. Only the Democrats

You guys spied on AP reporters and had Clapper deny meta data collection under oath. No credibility on this. Zero. https://t.co/1naDjrLDHr

Tbh this sort of gaslighting worked better when you guys were in power and reporters had an incentive to echo it. https://t.co/zGrlqNEkzi

@brhodes Oh look the guy who lied to America about the Iran deal has something to say. That's cute.

How could there be, after all, since I've been told the Obama administration was scandal-free. https://t.co/HijV8ouDdQ

And we know that because the Obama administration said so!
Guy Benson with the bottom line:
Perhaps, perhaps not. But we most assuredly won't be taking *your* word for it. https://t.co/vkSXFXYJ8H
