The irony is definitely ‘strong with this one’. MSNBC has survived this past 2 years by serving their viewers a steady diet of ‘Trump Hating’ and ‘Russian Colluding’ goodies. One of the chief chefs has been, none other than, Joy Reid. And now we find that Russian trolls, Boris and Natasha, are the ones who have been writing the ‘restaurant reviews’, so to speak.
Somewhat lost in the flood of recriminations, however, was news that the Russian trolls favored one political pundit far in excess of their support for Sanders—and roughly half as much as Donald Trump.
According to an analysis of the raw data by Law&Crime, Joy-Ann Reid–recently and glowingly profiled as a heroine of the #Resistance by the New York Times–received some 267 total retweets by the private sector Russian troll brigade.
Maddow explained that MSNBC staff interns had attempted to contact a Mr. V. Lenin and Mr. J. Stalin, both purportedly important Russian Officials shown here posing with President Donald J. Trump. It’s possible these were the very Russian Officials who ‘allegedly’ (the lawyers made us say that, but you all know the real truth) colluded with Trump during the 2016 Election cycle. The Trump White House refused to answer any inquiries regarding this proof of potential collusion.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow gave a “heads up” to other news organizations on Thursday after she was sent what she believes are faked National Security Agency documents alleging collusion between a member of the Trump campaign and Russian government.
“Somebody, for some reason, appears to be shopping a fairly convincing fake NSA document that purports to directly implicate somebody from the Trump campaign in working with the Russians in their attack in the election,” Maddow said in a lengthy segment on her show.
