On Monday, a reporter exposed President Donald Trump for yet again peddling a nonsensical conspiracy theory about Barack Obama.

Hours after Trump posted a string of tweets and retweets about "Obamagate" — a new conspiracy theory that holds Obama responsible for masterminding the Russia investigation and railroading former Trump administration National Security Adviser Michael Flynn into a guilty plea for lying to the FBI (never mind that there's no evidence of investigatory misconduct) — Philip Rucker of the Washington Post called Trump's bluff.

"In one of your Mother's Day tweets, you appeared to accuse President Obama of 'the biggest political crime in American history, by far' — those were your words. What crime exactly are you accusing President Obama of committing, and do you believe the Justice Department should prosecute him?" Rucker asked, during a news conference that was ostensibly about the coronavirus.

Trump had nothing.
