No, sir. "That wimpy Hugh Grant" does not actually run the British government.

It seems unlikely that President Obama is hanging out near his front door, expecting that big “I’m sorry” bouquet to arrive … what with Donald Trump being a dick and all. But while Trump’s incredible inability to admit that he might possibly be wrong about anything ever continues to make him double-down over a story he misunderstood in the first place, there is an apology being handed out over yesterday’s extra special idiocy.

“Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command," Spicer said, reading from notes in the White House press room on Thursday.

"[Obama] didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ, what is that? It’s the initials for the British Intelligence Spying Agency," Spicer said.

Nice move there, Sean. So it wasn’t just Barack Obama who was slipping mikes into Trump’s phones. He was assisted in spying on a US presidential candidate by those crafty Brits. The best way to back up your persecution fantasy? Turn it into an international conspiracy.

And then what happened?

The US has made a "formal apology" to Britain over accusations a UK spy agency worked with former President Barack Obama to wiretap Trump Tower, according to The Telegraph.

So we can assume the Double-0 division has called back their man.

The Telegraph reports that both Spicer and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster apologized to Britain.

"The apology came direct from them," an intelligence source told the British newspaper.

McMaster reportedly apologized directly to Prime Minister Theresa May's security chief Sir Mark Lyall Grant, according to The Sun.

It’s not likely that we’ll get the exact wording of that apology, but since it was a formal, intergovernmental discussion, we can assume that “sorry, my boss is a dumbass” likely came up no more than twice.

"General McMaster also reassured No10 that the White House would never repeat the embarrassment, which threatened to put crucial Trans-Atlantic intelligence cooperation at risk," The Sun reports.

How could anyone make such a promise when it concerns Donald Trump?

Wait. Maybe the man in the neatly tailed suit is still coming after all.
