Anti-lgbt hate group supports Trump's false claim about wiretapping

Determined to keep the possibility open that all of their little right-wing evangelical fantasies (anti-lgbt religious liberty laws, curtailing of transgender rights, defunding Planned Parenthood, conservative justices on SCOTUS, elimination of the Johnson Amendment) would become realities, some religious right groups and organizations are backing Trump regardless of how off the deep end he goes with his statements and assertions

For example, there is his latest nonsense that the former president, Barack Obama, wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower before the election. Trump didn't offer any proof and federal officials, such as FBI director James Comey have said it didn't happen. Meanwhile, Trump's team has been scrambling to either back him up or lessen the backlash while credibility has taken another beating, particularly in the press.

Nevertheless, the folks at the anti-lgbt hate group American Family Association's fake news site, One News Now, is backing him up with a comically awful article, A crazy accusation that might not be so crazy.

To make matters even more pathetic, One News Now is taking a poll which doesn't even offer any genuine questions:

Lies about wiretapping told in the name of God are still lies. But I guess AFA doesn't care as long as it keeps Trump's so-called Christian evangelical supporters from becoming sensibly demoralized.
