Former Trump campaign senior adviser A.J. Delgado tore into claims that the Obama administration may have surveilled the Trump campaign, calling it “embarrassing.”

“Are we really going w this?? That Obama put a spy inside the Trump campaign, to frame Trump? Srsly? Not sure if it’s IQ, ethics, or simple common sense but I cant,” Delgado tweeted Monday night.

Delgado had worked on the Trump campaign and transition. Jason Miller, also a former Trump campaign aide, revealed last year that he fathered a child with Delgado during the campaign.
