On Feb. 28, Americans saw a completely different side of President Trump at his first address to a joint session of Congress.

His speech was the polar opposite of what we are used to.

Instead of going off on tangents or unrelated topics, something he is accustomed to in recent press conferences, he actually stuck to a script, and left the country inspired.

As a result, Republicans and even Democrats had little to no complaint of how Trump handled himself while addressing the country with his plans and hopes as President.

The tide quickly changed as the days followed and additional leaks of ties with Russia, and an accusation of Obama, wire tapping Trump Towers emerged.

Apparently, this poised, some might say, even the presidential side of Trump was too good to be true.

There is no concrete evidence to support either accusation, however, a storm of tweets made my President Trump say otherwise.

In addition, a response by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to a question posed by Meet The Press leaves one thinking there is something more to the story of Trump Towers being wire tapped than just Trump paranoid.

After being directly asked whether or not the Obama administration wire tapped Trump Towers during the presidential campaign, Schumer bypassed the question entirely by stating he cannot comment on something that may be under investigation.

With this cryptic answer, he might as well have pleaded the fifth, which would have been just as bizarre.

Needless to say, the public is left at a standstill with such confusing accusations about first the Trump administration’s potential ties with Russia, and now the Obama administration wire tapping during Trump’s campaign.

At the point, it is hard to tell whether President Trump is completely delusional, trying to deflect attention away from potential Russia ties, or if all of his accusations did in fact occur.

The only answers, if any, the public will receive are in actual investigations made by neutral parties.
