Despite unleashing the term on his followers during a furious Mother’s Day tweetstorm, Trump dodged questions about it on Monday. Instead, he claimed former President Barack Obama was involved in the “biggest political crime in American history” ― yet refused to say what that crime was.
“The crime is very obvious to everybody,” Trump said.
Between intermittently tweeting “OBAMAGATE” in all caps, Trump has retweeted several right-wing Twitter users and fringe media outlets plugging the relatively unknown and elaborate conspiracy theory, which alleges Obama led an attempt to sabotage the incoming Trump administration.
“That’s just weird,” “The Daily Show” host said on Tuesday. “Trump won’t tell us what the crime is because it’s ‘so obvious’ that you don’t even need to ask. Even though everyone needs to ask!”
“So we have no idea,” Noah added. “We have no idea what ‘Obamagate’ actually is supposed to be. And I don’t think Trump actually knows either.”
