Evil Trump waved his magic hand and infected us all.
Do you listen to how stupid your anti-Trump bullshit sounds?

If you're going to accuse a much beloved, former President of a crime, then you MUST provide details.

Otherwise, you are the one committing a crime.

But then, Der Fuhrer breaks the law every day, & the Law & Order Party doesn't care. If the Republicans were patriots, they would have removed him. If Pence were a patriot, he would be President.

Our country won't survive four more years of this low like piece of shit.

Lets see - on the same day Trump accuses Obama of being a criminal and McConnell accuses Obama of having no class.

While I'll admit that those two are experts on "criminality" and "classlessness", the coincidence in timing seems suspicious.

Maybe somebody should clue these two into the concept that Obama isn't running for Office this year, and that he made it through two terms in Office WITHOUT BEING IMPEACHED!
