Trump got Twitter wondering what would happen #IfIWereWiretapped


After a weekend where President Trump grabbed headlines by claiming without evidence that he was wiretapped by former President Obama, Twitter did what Twitter usually does: Crack jokes.

 #IfIWereWiretapped trended Sunday night into Monday. Naturally, people mostly bragged about how boring (or eccentric) they would seem to whoever was wiretapping them.

Some brought up an excellent point about a technological reality.

Some people turned the conversation back on Trump.

Others turned it back on Obama and Hillary Clinton.

There was also the grim reminder that privacy is hard to find in 2017.
