Finally! A member of the media calls Trump what he really is…a Liar!
Friday night MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow discussed the newly released intelligence report about Russia’s interference in our election. And she really went after Trump’s response. Rachel did what most of the media has been afraid to do. She called the President Elect a liar.
“What we learned when this came out is that our new President will flat out lie to us. To our faces. And even put it in writing.”
The thing that got Rachel so incensed was that after Trump had his classified briefing on the report, he still came out lying about it. And he lied about something that we could easily read for ourselves in the declassified report–clearly showing that he was not telling the truth.
Trump said that the report proves that Russia’s interference had absolutely no impact on the outcome of the election. First of all, anyone with a brain who paid attention during the campaign knows that the Wikileaks daily drops absolutely did taint the electorate. And further, the report most definitely did not say that the hack had no effect.
Rachel said about Trump’s statement,
“He put out a written statement about what he learned in the briefing. And he blatantly, and overtly, bluntly, simply lied about what is in this report. Right before this report got publicly released so we could check ourselves and see that he was lying.”
