MSNBC is a loony bin for insane leftists.
Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell is no exception.
He went on the air and promoted the most insane conspiracy theory anyone had ever heard.
Donald Trump surprised many Americans when he ordered a missile strike against a Syrian airfield in response to a chemical weapons attack the administration claimed was carried out by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
Syria is a client state of the Russian government and O’Donnell used that fact to tie together the fake news conspiracy theory that the Russians colluded with the Trump campaign to steal the election with Trump’s decision to bomb Syria.
O’Donnell claimed – without citing evidence – that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated the chemical weapons attack to provoke Trump and distract from Congress and the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s actions during the election.
“O’Donnell said, “[W]ouldn’t it be nice if it was just completely, totally, absolutely impossible to suspect that Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week so that his friend in the White House could have a big night, with missiles, and all of the praise he’s picked up over the last 24 hours? Wouldn’t it be so nice if you couldn’t even in your wildest dreams imagine a scenario like that?”
He added, “I don’t know what it is. Is it a 2% chance? Is it a 50% chance? Is — I don’t know. But what — I don’t think it’s a 0% chance, and it used to be, with every other president prior to Donald Trump.”
O’Donnell further stated, “Well, when Bill Clinton fired missiles during his presidency, Republicans questioned that. They questioned whether that was to distract attention from the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and that was a legitimate question.”
O’Donnell further explained why he believed Putin was the puppet master pulling the strings to manipulate events and Donald Trump.
Breitbart also reports:
“He continued, “For most of the news media, it changes the conventional wisdom about the dynamic between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. President Trump has finally dared to do something that Vladimir Putin doesn’t like. It changes everything. As long as you never, never question whether Vladimir Putin wanted all of this to happen this week. And when you question that and you look at what has happened, it’s always worth remembering that if Vladimir Putin really does have ways, known or unknown to Donald Trump, to influence Donald Trump, then every day that is a good day for President Trump is a good day for President Putin. Now not one word that I’ve just said could possibly have been said about any president prior to Donald Trump.”
O’Donnell further said, “you will hear opinion in this hour that is counter to the possible scenario that I have just outlined, but what you won’t hear is proof that that scenario that I’ve just outlined is impossible.”
The left has thrown all their eggs in the Donald Trump and Russia conspiracy theory.
But it’s fake news.
No evidence exists that provides proof the Trump campaign worked with the Russians to rig the election.
And rather than accept reality, the left is doubling down on this baseless conspiracy.
