In a series of tweets on Saturday morning, U.S. President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of having the phones in Trump Tower wiretapped before the November election.

Trump made the accusations shortly after a Breitbart article suggested that Obama was conducting a “silent coup” against the Trump administration.

However, rather than piggy back on Trump’s claims for which he provided no evidence, Twitter users were more concerned about his state of mind.

Here are some of those tweets.

Former Obama foreign policy adviser and speechwriter Ben Rhodes blasted President Trump in a series of tweets, with the first seeking to educate Trump while at the same time taking a jab at him. “No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.”

He then went after the many of the political pundits who praised Trump for his first address to a joint session of Congress where he managed to stay calm, read from the teleprompter, and deliver a largely positive message. Many pundits, including left leaning ones, all but claimed that the speech signaled an end to the volatile side of the President.

“Dear Pundits who lauded his speech. Is it still ‘presidential’ to call your dignified predecessor ‘bad (or sick) guy!'” Rhodes tweeted.

He then specifically addressed one of the tweets in Trump’s tirade where the President said “I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”

Rhodes responded: “No. They couldn’t. Only a liar could do that.”
