MSNBC Admits Russia Didn’t Tip the Scales to Trump

Don’t get too excited here folks, because while MSNBC’s morning host Joe Scarborough states unequivocally that he believes that Russia had nothing to do with Trump’s victory, later in the show he attacked Trump for his Russia connections.

Speaking to journalist Noah Rothman, Scarborough said,  “We don’t think the Russians had anything to do with Donald trump winning the election… I think Hillary Clinton not going to Wisconsin and not listening to Bill Clinton, and not listening to Joe Biden, and not listening to a lot of other people who were telling her back in August. And Robby Mook deciding he’s not going to poll but instead he’s going to look at analytics. There are a thousand reasons why Hillary Clinton lost starting with Hillary Clinton being a terrible candidate.”

That is the most lucid, thoughtful, and correct commentary i’ve heard from MSNBC in a very long time.

Sadly, later on in the show the hosts welcomed Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), himself a known liar, where they moved on to attack the President for undermining himself by refusing to toe the line on our relationship with Russia.

What follows is 10 minutes of attacking President Trump for his feelings, comments, and non-action on the Russia/Putin question.

While Scarborough makes a point to say that he’s not equipped to speak to the President’s “state of mind” he does so in a way that is mean to demean the President. He and the rest of the panel, excluding Noah Rothman, take turns attacking the President for refusing to vociferously endorse new sanctions on Russia. They also point out that the latest round of Congressional sanctions would be a big step towards undercutting executive power and increasing Congressional power in dealing with foreign nations. While many conservatives would argue that this would be a good thing, the cast at MSNBC’s Morning Joe seem to refuse to acknowledge why a President would be happy to hand over powers that have historically resided in the Executive Branch to the Legislative Branch.

Simply put, there are many reasons that the Trump administration may look to take a different path with Russia than the one that has been laid out by Congress. Particularly, because President Trump campaigned on a shift in relations with the nations that the Obama administration had become antagonistic with (like Russia and China). Indeed, relations with Russia seemed to have a chance at bettering themselves, until the media decided that Russia was going to be the constant focus of every bad thing happening across the planet. Instead of tensions easing and relations normalizing… the media has created a world ripe for chaos.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
