MSNBC is in constant crisis mode.
They have to sell hysteria to their leftist audience, so they grasp at any anti-Trump straws.
Now one MSNBC host tried to take down Trump with one tweet and completely embarrassed himself.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has become a disgrace.
In his latest fit of rage against Trump, Scarborough jumped on a tweet that showed a transcript of the “nefarious” call between Trump and the newly-elected Ukrainian president.
Scarborough quickly retweeted the incredibly damning tweet, but there was one problem: it was fake.
The transcript that got Scarborough so excited was a clear bit of parody from The Daily Show.
Scarborough deleted the tweet, but the Washington Free Beacon managed to get a screencap:
Scarborough was widely mocked for his ridiculous retweet.
This phenomenon is all too common on the left.
Their Trump Derangement Syndrome runs so deep, they can’t help themselves.
They jump on hoax stories that turn out to be nothing-burgers, then never take responsibility for getting it wrong.
The left spent over two years selling the Russian collusion hoax to the American people in virtually every single news cycle, and it went bust.
At best, they’ll make corrections well after the fact, or even stealth-edit their online stories when they think nobody is watching.
At worse, they’ll firmly stand by their discredited reporting.
This behavior is why Trump calls the so-called mainstream media the enemy of the American people.
They don’t behave like a press whose job it is to inform.
Instead they openly work as an arm of the Democrat Party.
And Scarborough is a bad actor in this game.
The former Republican—Scarborough left the party in mid-2017 to become an independent, though he’s indistinguishable from a leftist shill—constantly attacks Donald Trump and his supporters.
But Scarborough’s attacks are dishonest, and likely about staying in good graces with his liberal overlords at MSNBC.
During the 2016 campaign, Scarborough routinely had friendly conservations with Trump on his show, and even flirted with the idea of being Trump’s running mate.
And this was in January 2016, after Trump’s supposedly “horrible” speech about illegal alien criminals.
However, all that changed when it became clear Trump was the leader in the Republican primary.
MSNBC and other liberal outlets were fine with Trump when they thought he was just a gadfly to Jeb Bush’s campaign.
But once Trump became the true threat to Hillary Clinton’s coronation, the knives came out.
Liberals haven’t put away the knives ever since.
For almost three years, the left has tried to overturn the results of the 2016 election with one fake scandal after another.
The Ukrainian phone call is just the latest nothing-burger that the left is trying to blow out of proportion.
MSNBC and other liberal networks are trying to use it as the foundation for impeachment, but it’s going to backfire, just like Scarborough’s laughable retweet did.
