He's turned the GOP into the party of personal responsibility, so long as that person is Obama
So, you won't believe this shit.
The Trump administration vetted him like he was some random stoner in Annandale trying to sell them patio furniture on Craigslist. Turns out that after he'd retired from the U.S. military, he took payments from RT-TV, a propaganda tool of the Russian government. He never told anyone, which means he probably broke the law.
Trump loved him because he's a kooky conspiracy theorist who in virtually every photo looks like a guy trapped on a hot-air balloon just as the laxatives start to kick in. (Seriously, take a look for yourself.)
Anyway, after taking heat for failing to properly vet Flynn, the Trump administration released this statement through official White House Mouth of Sauron Sean Spicer:
“General Flynn was a career military officer who maintained a high-level security clearance throughout his career in the military. His clearance was last reissued by the Obama administration in 2016 with full knowledge of his activities that occurred in 2015, as you point out. So the issue is, he was issued a security clearance under the Obama administration in the spring of 2016. The trip and transactions that you’re referring to occurred in December of 2015, from what I understand.”
So in case you're keeping score, here are just a few of the things Barack Obama is responsible for:
Failing to properly vet Trump's national security advisor before Trump appointed him
Getting a Navy SEAL killed during a military raid that Trump ordered
The huge anti-Trump protests taking place across the country
Embarrassing leaks coming from the Trump White House
The economic "mess" Trump inherited from Obama, which led to the addition of an impressive 227,000 jobs in the January 2017 employment report — jobs that Trump immediately took credit for, even though most of them were created before he took office
