As the pressure continues to mount over what role Russia has played in the White House, Donald Trump is doing whatever he can to deflect to other stories. In his latest tweet-storm, Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election.

Trump on Twitter

Dating back to the early days of the Obama administration, Donald Trump has found ways to take cheap shots at the former president. Years before Trump became a presidential candidate himself, the former host of "The Apprentice" was one of the leading voices in the "birther" movement, which questioned former President Barack Obama's origin of birth, claiming that a fake birth certificate was used to get into the White House.

Since then, Trump has attacked Obama on a fairly regular basis, despite appearing cordial during the transition period. After Trump accused Obama of Watergate-like wiretapping of Trump Tower, Hollywood stars on Twitter reacted accordingly on March 4.

"Terrible!" Donald Trump wrote on Twitter shortly after 6:30 a.m., before adding, "Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory." Trump followed up his claim with several tweets where he referred to Obama as "sick" and "bad," while publicly wondering whether or not he should hire a lawyer to take matters to the next level.

"Donald, sir: If you were tapped, there was probable cause a foreign power held influence," actor George Takei tweeted out, while adding, "If you weren't, you're just paranoid delusional." "Donald, if your phones were being tapped, it was only because you were running Trump Tower like it was Moscow on the Hudson," Takei wrote in another tweet.

"If DT is telling truth for first time in his life and, per FBI, he was tapped, it sure feels like the dam is about to burst," actor and director Rob Reiner tweeted out.

Actress and talk show host Rosie O'Donnell made sure to add her thoughts on social media, writing, "well - he is a very sick untreated mentally ill 70 yr old man." Comedian John Fugelsang‏ chimed in, stating, "'Trump Tower' is trending but only because 'once again provides no evidence to support his claim' was too long."

King's take

Author Stephen King decided to take a more trolling approach, and targeted Donald Trump as only he knows how. "All politics aside, the Trump administration reminds me of that Tom Arnold movie, THE STUPIDS. Really, you guys, this is embarrassing," King wrote on Twitter.

In a follow-up tweet, King humorously added, "Obama tapped Trump's phones IN PERSON! Went in wearing a Con Ed coverall. Michelle stood guard while O spliced the lines. SAD!"

While celebrities are having fun mocking Donald Trump, former President Barack Obama also responded, labeling the allegations against him as "simply false" in a statement released on Saturday. While Trump's allegations appear to come from an article in Breitbart News, no other evidence has been released to back up the claim.
