As the United States faces an unprecedented moment in history, with millions of Americans out of work and kept in their homes under social distancing orders, the President continues obsessing over debunked conspiracy theories.
Trump's latest fixation seems to be "Obamagate" a repeatedly-disproven conspiracy theory that's almost too strange and convoluted to follow. President Trump himself even seems unable to define exactly what it is he believes President Obama did that was illegal.
But, as is often the case, the comedians of the world have been the most adept at summing up the facts of the issue. Wanda Sykes explained what Obamagate is actually about on Instagram.

Sykes wasted no time in unravelling the great mystery of Obamagate, saying:
"I'm sure a lot of you are asking 'what is this Obamagate?' Well, let me explain it to you. So, in 2008, Barack Obama won the presidential election and he was black."
"He served two terms and today he is still black. So there you have it. Obamagate is some old bullsh*t."

Many people believe the President is suddenly making such a big stink about "Obamagate" to deflect attention away from his administration's mishandling of the pandemic.

If there's one thing we all know President Trump won't do, it's produce any evidence whatsoever of his claims.

For some reason, President Trump is convinced his greatest enemy is a President who left office nearly four years ago.
