Over the last week, the biggest story to dominate the news cycle has been Donald Trump and his allegations that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his offices at Trump Tower. With no evidence to back up his claim, the media has piled on the current commander in chief.

CNN on Trump

"Is it legal for a sitting President to be 'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election? " Donald Trump asked over the weekend as part of a multiple-tweet rant on social media. The billionaire real estate mogul went on to label Obama a "sick" and "bad" man, while comparing the baseless claim to Watergate and the actions ordered by then President Richard Nixon.

Within hours, Obama released a statement denying the wiretapping, calling it "simply false." In the days that have followed, Trump has stayed mum, while his team have continued to back up the allegations. However, no information has been presented to give credibility to the claim, which was on display during the March 8 edition of "The Lead" on CNN.

CNN host Jake Tapper kicked off his show on Wednesday, and didn't hold back his thoughts on Donald Trump and the aforementioned wiretapping claim against Barack Obama. "Welcome to Obama-tapped-my-phone Island," Jake Tapper stated, before mockingly adding, "Population? President Trump."

Not stopping there, Jake Tapper continued to expose the fact that the wiretapping conspiracy has no evidence behind it.

Tapper pointed out that the administration claims Donald Trump "has no regrets" after accusing Obama of wiretapping, while labeling it a "fact-free claim." "Just about everyone else in the city in the know, or with the power to investigate the claim says it’s not true,or that they’ve seen nothing that can support the accusation,” the CNN host continued.

Taper refused to hold back, blasting the former host of "The Apprentice" for pushing "nonexistent evidence" as facts.

After Donald Trump went on his Twitter tirade, many in the media went on to explain that the president was simply deflecting from his own issues in the White House. Just last week, the Washington Post revealed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been in contact with the ambassador to Russia on two occasions during the election, but refused to disclose the meetings during his confirmation hearing in the senate last month.
