Even Facebook admits the 2016 Trump campaign benefited from the platform. But the liberal media tries to interpret the use of a tool as something sinister. State-funded PBS thinks both President Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin worked to use social media against the Democrats.
Given the many embarrassments the Iranian regime has suffered over the last week it is hard to see the strike that took out Qasem Soleimani as anything but a win for the United States, but that didn't stop MSNBC Live from declaring Russia to be the big winner, because of course it is.
CNN claims Fox News and its fans are dwelling on unproven conspiracy theories, like, say, the Horowitz Report on FISA abuse. But CNN is always trafficking in Russiagate conspiracy theories, enabling the unproven notion that Vladimir Putin has "something" on President Trump and that he's blackmailing him. Anchor Brianna Keilar helpfully allowed Rep. Norma Torres to spread the fiction that Trump's Russia policy is apparently all surrender, "playing the handmaid" to Putin.
CBS News seemed as though they were still maintaining a death grip on the Russian collusion delusion after Wednesday’s impeachment of President Trump. As if he were weighing in on the impeachment of his mole, CBS Evening News was in a tizzy Thursday night as they warned viewers that Russian President Vladimir Putin was spouting “Republican talking points” in Trump’s defense.
The media just cannot bring themselves to admit that just because Russia interfered in the 2016 election, does not mean that Ukraine did not, even if on a smaller scale. The latest media personality to have this trouble was CNN's Wolf Blitzer as he interviewed Judiciary Committee member Tom McClintock of California before Monday's impeachment hearings.
MSNBC contributor and Politico national security correspondent Natasha Bertrand twisted herself into a rhetorical pretzel on Friday where she declared that Vladmir Putin interfered in the 2016 election in order to see Donald Trump elected president. This assertion occurred less than a minute after MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle played a clip of Dr. Fiona Hill's Thursday testimony saying that such talk is "is exactly what the Russian government was hoping for."
As part of their never-ending quest to take down President Trump, the “experts” at MSNBC came up with a unique charge on Tuesday’s edition of the Morning Joe program, when a guest claimed that the GOP occupant of the White House was “compromised” by Russia as far back as 1977. Instead of questioning the unlikely accusation, co-host Willie Geist agreed with the charge that Trump had gone from being a “useful idiot” to an “unwitting asset” for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was actually described by the pundit as a “super-villain.”
It was on Friday that Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough was upset that Louisiana Senator John Kennedy called Speaker Nancy Pelosi "dumb." But that was then and this is now. Apparently, Scarborough doesn’t remember what he says from day-to-day. On Monday, he was up to his old tricks questioning whether President Trump is a Russian agent or simply a useful idiot.
In a segment that shockingly did not come out of The Babylon Bee, MSNBC, the network that came up with the phrase "Moscow Mitch" and other dignified political commentary that asserts that behind every Republican is a Russian stooge, decided it would be worth their while to give a wide-ranging interview to an actual Russian stooge, NSA leaker Edward Snowden, on Monday night's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams.
The folks over at MSNBC have created a "heads I win, tails you lose" approach to President Trump and Republican policy towards Russia. The same network that has come up with "Moscow Mitch" for Republicans being allegedly too soft on Russia now claims Trump is giving Vladimir Putin "a gift" by withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, because Russia refuses to come back into compliance.
On AM Joy, Malcolm Nance tells Joy Reid that "this could be the last free and fair election in American history" because of manipulation of the results by a foreign "cabal."
In an extended rant, Joe Scarborough calls Mitch McConnell "Moscow Mitch" no fewer than 14 times, with sidekick Donny Deutsch using the phrase twice. Scarborough was angered that McConnell had blocked two partisan Democrat bills ostensibly seeking to promote "election security" in light of past and possible future Russian attempts to interfere with US elections.
