The White House is becoming a COVID-19 hot spot.

Uh oh, Barry is in trouble......

"This is a massive coverup of the greatest scandal in American history. We expect and we don't like it when the Russians interfere with our elections, or the Chinese or the Iranians or the North Koreans, they're the enemy and they ought to pay for it. But we don't expect the Obama administration and the Democrats to interfere with elections, to send spies into the opposition party's campaign. To lie to a federal court, to fix evidence...that's why all along I've been calling this a silent coup," he continued. "This tells us that Obama knew...the fact of the matter is Barack Obama knew all about this."
