Obama Spokesperson Responds to Trump's Wire-Tapping Claim

A spokesperson for former President Barack Obama is speaking out to deny the claims being made by current President Donald Trump.

Trump took to Twitter on early Saturday morning (March 4) to claim that Obama wire tapped his phones during the election process and compared the situation to Watergate.

“Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!” Trump tweeted. “I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” he added in a third tweet.

VIDEO: Cecily Strong & Sasheer Zamata Sing a Goodbye to Obama on 'SNL'

The first episode of Saturday Night Live to take place during Donald Trump‘s presidency featured a farewell to President Obama at the end of the night.

Cecily Strong and Sasheer Zamata sang an emotional version of the classic song “To Sir With Love” while a black and white photo of Obama was projected on a screen behind them.

Cecily hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2015 and she took to her Instagram account the other day to remember the moment.

“One of the best moments of my life. Getting to sort of start to begin to try and thank this hero. As messy and awful and stupid and ugly and violent and deadly and embarrassing and idiotic as things can sometimes feel- I’m still so proud to be part of a country that produces families and people like the Obamas. Thank you for making this a better country and making me a better person,” Cecily said.
