You don’t have to look particularly hard to find examples of outlandish anti-Trump accusations in the cesspool that is MSNBC, but it’s still extraordinary to tune in and see the sort of stuff that passes for mainstream media punditry these days. These leftists, so quick to accuse President Trump of lying or saying something “without evidence,” are unrestrained in their willingness to peddle debunked conspiracy theories and deceptions about the president.
On Thursday, undistinguished ass Donny Deutsch appeared on the channel’s “Morning Joe” program to throw all manner of wild accusations against Trump without even a hint of evidence. Claiming that Trump’s withdrawal from Syria was a gift to Moscow, Deutsch went on to explain why our president is so beholden to Russia.
“Let’s not forget it. This is all about failed casinos. He is owned by Putin because he’s been laundering money, Russian money for the last 20, 30 years. He’s owned by him. That’s what this is,” Deutsch said, parroting whatever conspiracy-laden books he’s been reading lately.
“You talk to any banker in New York, any business person in New York, any real estate person in New York,” Deutsch continued. “We have a president that’s selling out our military, that’s costing lives because he is owned by our geopolitical enemy because he’s been laundering money for him as a criminal organization for the last 30 years. That will come out in time.”
Oh, we’re sorry, did we say that Deutsch came to this conclusion without any evidence? Our mistake! He’s apparently talked to every banker, business person, and real estate person in Manhattan to come to his well-defined thesis. Aren’t these the same people who mock Trump when he vaguely cites “a lot of people are saying?”
Joe Scarborough’s declining BS detector must have sounded a weak alarm, because he quickly mentioned, “That is speculation and only speculation right now.”
But that alarm was quickly drowned out by the fear that his leftist viewing audience might turn on him, because he followed that up with: “I think we all will be absolutely fascinated when we finally figure out what Vladimir Putin has on Donald Trump and why Donald Trump has surrendered the Middle East, helped ISIS, helped Iran, helped Russia, helped Turkey, helped all of our enemies and betrayed all of our allies. You know, a lot of people think that it’s – he has compromising pictures or something happened in a hotel in Russia years ago. No. It goes back to money. It’s always about money.”
So now we’re reporting as fact something that “we will all be absolutely fascinated by” on some vague, undetermined future date? Cool. Now we see why these idiots were so enthralled by the Trump/Russia nonsense to begin with. They require no facts to arrive at a conclusion. If an unidentified CIA source told them that Trump was being controlled by a radio antenna on Mars, we’re sure they would report this “very disturbing” development the next day on their show.
What scares us is that so many people watch this crap and believe it.
