Only someone high on cough medicine could make that statement.

Edit for bulk....

That was an....interesting....read.

According to this article, Trump created the civil unrest in this country. We saw unrest long before Trump was a gleam in the presidential sphere.... nice try though. Unrest escalated under the previous administration with comments like 'you didn't build that'. Each administration has added to the unrest, it's just now coming to head, thanks to the uncivility of the left and far right.

46% of Americans identify as Democrats, and 41% identify as Republicans, according to several sources. Your calculator needs a bit of a tune up.

I'm not going to parse your article into little bits like some tend to do around here, but I found those two items worth mentioning.

I suppose I am not especially surprised to see that Rachel Maddow and Joy Reid view the president as "a foreign agent."

That is not to say that President Trump exactly covered himself with glory at this "summit"--he has been (rightly, I believe) criticized by both the right and the left in regard to this--but to characterize him as, perhaps, "a foreign agent," is to go a step two far.

Or perhaps several steps too far.

That just — you know, it makes the worst case scenario really palpable. The worst case scenario that the president is a foreign agent suddenly feels very palpable."
Of course, Rachel Maddow does not know--any more than the rest of us do--just what may have taken place in that private meeting.

Yet she appears to speculate that it must have been a "worst case scenario." (In fact, that is "very palpable," in her rather jaundiced view.)

Rachel Maddow falsely reports White House edited Putin transcript. Obama flashbacks, perhaps.

July 25, 2018

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow opened her show Tuesday with what she thought was another devastating scandal for the White House. According to her expert analysis, President Donald Trump’s administration edited out a question from a Reuters journalist asking whether Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to win the 2016 election during their meeting on July 16 in Helsinki.

The problem for Maddow: That didn’t happen.

“We can report tonight that the White House video of that exchange has also skilfully cut out that question from the Reuters reporter as if it didn’t happen,” Maddow said.

Maddow also claimed the White House nefariously edited out the question from the official transcript. Except, as the Washington Post’s Phillip Bump pointed out, the media’s independent transcripts also don’t include the reporter asking “President Putin, did you want President Trump to win the election?”

The omission has nothing to do with a conspiracy on the part of the Trump administration, but rather a change “between the feed from the reporters and the feed from the translator,” as Bump notes. You can even hear the question being asked in the White House version of the video.

Perhaps if Maddow is looking for an administration editing transcripts, she should remember how former President Barack Obama’s administration did just that.

Obama’s Department of Justice was caught in June 2016 editing out references to the Islamic State and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi from the 911 call made by Orlando, Florida, shooter Omar Mateen.

“They’re obviously making decisions that they believe are in the best interests of the investigation and of the broader community,” former press secretary Josh Earnest said at the time. “And I’ll leave it to the investigators who make those decisions to comment on it.”
