WND -- Which Feared Obama Would Be President For Life -- Mocks Streisand For Calling Trump An Authoritarian
Topic: WorldNetDaily

An anonymously written March 19 WorldNetDaily article claims:

It’s a conspiracy!

Actress Barbra Streisand is accusing Donald Trump of wanting to be “president for life” – just like his rumored pal in Russia, Vladimir Putin.

“@realDonaldTrump wants to be president for life just like #Putin,” Streisand tweeted Monday in response to a New York Times article headlined “Trump assails Mueller, drawing rebukes from Republicans.” 

She added: “He only surrounds himself with sycophants, just like every authoritarian in history.”

Streisand has a history of tweeting bizarre political statements.

If Streisand's tweet is a "bizarre political statement," then WND is just as bizarre.

WND columnist Morgan Brittany used a 2015 column to argue that racial unrest in Baltimore is part of President Obama's grand plan to institute martial law and cancel the 2016 election, claiming that if a verdict in a trial of Baltimore police officers "is not what they want, perhaps Obama will have to institute martial law to preserve order, form a national police force and postpone the 2016 elections."

In another 2015 column, WND editor speculated that Obama might not leave office because of his purported contempt for the law (all the free vacations he gets), adding: "Again, do I think Obama will leave office in January 2017? Yes I do. But, with a track record like this – and, actually much worse – should we simply take it for granted?"

WND writers are the last people who should be mocking others for holding presidential conspiracy theories.
