Congratulations, if you have no specific facts about "Obamagate" on hand, you've clearly done your homework. There is no Obamagate to know about. Drawing a blank when I mention Obamagate? Good. You just scored 100 per cent on the Test Your Knowledge of Obamagate exam.

Obamagate does not exist. It is not there. It never was there, and having spent much of 2016 being essentially Rick Rolled by then U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, many, though not all, of the media appear to be treading more cautiously around the now-president's latest gambit, that being the utter fantasy that is Obamagate.

Obamagate is the mythical grandchild of other fabricated scandals spun by Trump over the years. It's bred of the announcement that President Barack Obama had Trump's phone tapped during the election campaign, and it is the offspring of "her emails" and Hunter Biden, which never procreated. It is the invented great grandchild of Birtherism, the ridiculous fiction that Obama was not born in the United States and was therefore not qualified to be president.
