Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is claiming that Russian bought “Memes” are what won President Trump the election.

On today’s episode of The Daily Daily Caller Podcast…
Former Director of National Intelligence has a story to sell you, more accurately, he has a book to sell you. James “the Clap” Clapper is on a book tour that is being greeted by the liberal media like two other recent book tours for James Comey and Michael Wolfe, who were treated as conquering heroes of the #Resistance that were going to deliver a death blow to the Trump administration…only to see the wheels come off soon after hitting book stores. Like Wolff and Comey, Clapper is having difficulty backing up his assertions — in this case that the intelligence community spied on the Trump campaign to protect it.
The idea that the FBI needed to spy on the Trump campaign in order to save it is like Nicolas Cage in “National Treasure,” where he had to steal the Declaration of Independence in order to save it from being stolen by a really bad guy. Unlike “National Treasure,” where Cage tried to warn the National Archives of the gathering threat, Clappy and his fellow travelers didn’t bother to inform anyone in the Trump campaign that the Russians, allegedly, were trying to infiltrate them. Why? If you’re afraid someone is attempting something nefarious to the point that you’d spy on Americans to “protect” them, wouldn’t you do the ultimate “heading them off at the pass” and inform them so they wouldn’t even risk accidentally falling down that rabbit hole? Not if you wanted to gather dirt on them, which seems to be what the “deep state” really has as its objective.
On his book tour, The Clap is saying he believes the Russians not only tried to interfere with the election, but they actually flipped it and won it for Trump. Hillary Clinton’s campaign spent nearly a billion and a half dollars, more than 2 to 1 what Trump spent, and still lost. Was it because of the several thousands of dollars alleged Russian agents spends on ridiculous Facebook memes, or was it because she was an awful candidate the public had gotten to know over 30 years and decided they wanted no part of? We answer that question on today’s show.
Can someone please help Clapper find a clue? Memes are not what changed the course of the 2016 election and if he actually really believes that then it’s a good thing he is the former DNI Chief.
Earlier this week Clapper claimed to have staggering proof that Putin meddled to sway the election for President Trump

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has spoken out about the “staggering” amount of evidence that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin swayed the 2016 presidential election. In his new memoir, Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From a Life in Intelligence, Clapper offers a scathing assessment of President Trump and his ties to Russia. The book shows Clapper “free to say about the 2016 elections what he did not say when he testified multiple times before Congress as director of national intelligence,” The Daily Beast’s Christopher Dickey writes in a review in The Washington Post. As Clapper put it: “Of course the Russian efforts affected the outcome. Surprising even themselves, they swung the election to a Trump win. To conclude otherwise stretches logic, common sense, and credulity to the breaking point." Describing a January 2017 report by the intelligence community presented to the soon-to-be-president, Clapper said, “I remember just how staggering the assessment felt the first time I read it through from start to finish, and just how specific our conclusions and evidence were.” In the intelligence chief’s view, “We showed unambiguously that Putin had ordered the campaign to influence the election… and how the entire operation had begun with attempts to undermine U.S. democracy and demean Secretary Clinton, then shifted to promoting Mr. Trump when Russia assessed he was a viable candidate who would serve their strategic goals.” Trump’s reaction then as now: “aggressive indifference.”
If the proof was memes all along , then we now know why Mueller can’t find any evidence of Russian collusion.
