The mainstream pundit class seems non-plussed by Kim Jong-Don's tweet storm about his being wiretapped during the "sacred" election.  By the way, if it were so "sacred" he shouldn't have colluded with Putin to bend the result.  But I digress.

Mentioned, or alluded to, here in the past is the fundamental difference between Kim Jong-Don and any other pol in memory: he's spent his adulthood living the life of mini-dictator.  His "business" is, structurally, exactly like the candy store that was on the street I walked twice a day (back then, grade schoolers were sent home for lunch; really) as a child.  He has no shareholders.  He has no BoD.  He's The Decider.  So, in that upbringing, if *he* wanted to wiretapp an enemy, he'd just snap his little fingers and it would be done.  Now that he's the Dictator of the USoA, he just assumes that such is the way things are done.  If Congress, right wing as its ever been, rolls over for him, he will be Dictator.  Roberts sure isn't going to spike is tires.

This is why he had a cow about Sessions. He doesn't get that anyone who works for him should follow any standards that aren't his.

well, he had a cow because Sessions, right away, started his job as Voter Suppressor in Chief, and this "lying" bit might endanger the effort.

I, too, walked home from school for lunch and back to school  before the bell rang...

What Trump doesn't get is that the wiretap couldn't happen without establishing sufficient probable cause to obtain the warrant needed to do so...

Either way, Trump has stepped into some shit, and proceeded to  put his foot in his mouth.

the mainstream pundits haven't, yet, gotten Kim Jong-Don's point:  he wasn't tapped with a FISA or DoJ criminal warrant, but by Obambi's Plumbers' Unit.  There's even less evidence for that, but the lunatic Right, having done such in the past, assumes that Obambi did so.  Part of the impetus is that Obambi did run a leak-resistant ship.

Yes! He doesn't know anything about presidenting. Or government.

FWIW, Chris Matthews in his closing of "Hardball" offered the plumbers (rather than FBI/FSIA) accusation by Kim Jong-Don.  the first mainstream pundit I know of to connect that dot.
