But it's gotten out of hand with the alleged Trump and Russia collusion, from pee-pee tapes to Rachel Maddow's breathless promises of yet another "breaking story" that yet again fails to deliver.
But I've come up with one more theory:
Obama wanted Trump to get re-elected.
After a mediocre eight years in office marked by a cowardice to confront Republicans, Obama feared that a President Hillary Clinton would expose his many flaws and weaknesses.
Given that Clinton is just as servile to Wall Street and the one percent, that seems like an unlikely possibility.
But even more of a sure way for Obama to polish his legacy would be for Trump to follow him to the White House.
Think about it: The Clintonites are already advancing the theory that Obama sat on the evidence of Russian hacking and collusion with Trump.
To have exposed such treason before Election Day would have been the clincher to a President Clinton.
Yep, Obama wanted Clinton to lose.
And Trump to win.
But that's ridiculous.
Obama would have to be a vain, self-absorbed politician who doesn't really care about the people who voted for him -- only the image they have of him.
