The entire MSNBC lineup is afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The network is consumed with taking down Donald Trump by any means necessary.
And one MSNBC host went after Ted Cruz regarding Trump and did something he instantly regretted.
Democrats are masters of gaslighting the American people.
The term is based on the 1944 film “Gaslight,” which deals with a man who’s trying to convince his wife she’s going crazy so he can swindle her.
Democrats are trying to convince the American people that they are the ones who are deranged.
One of the main culprits of gaslighting is MSNBC host Chuck Todd.
He’s tried to use righteous indignation to convince people who torpedo his arguments that they are saying something beyond the pale.
The latest person he tried that tactic on was Senator Ted Cruz from Texas.
Cruz was a debate champion at Princeton, so he’s particularly good at exposing the terrible arguments of the left.
Recently, Todd had Cruz on his show and tried to badger Cruz into admitting that Trump was somehow helping the Russians with his actions with Ukraine.
Cruz pointed out that Trump actually armed the Ukrainians against the Russians, something Barack Obama didn’t do.
Todd also balked at the notion that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election, but Cruz quickly put Todd in his place.
“Russia has tried to interfere in our elections. China has tried to interfere in our elections. North Korea has tried to interfere in our elections. Ukraine has tried to interfere in our elections. This is not new, 2016 is not the first year they did it.”
Even a Ukrainian court said that Ukrainian officials meddled in the 2016 election.
This is very inconvenient for Democrats, because it shows that Trump is justified in wanting to get to the bottom of what happened in 2016.
It also undercuts the narrative that Russia did something unique in 2016 in order to help Trump win.
The truth is, foreign governments are self-interested.
Their goal is to sow chaos in the United States, and big media is giving them exactly what they want.
Todd recently wrote an op-ed for Rolling Stone lambasting the right for being a machine of disinformation.
Again, this is supreme gaslighting.
It’s the so-called mainstream media that spent over two years trying to convince the American people that the President of the United States colluded with a foreign power.
Big media is the most powerful tool of disinformation.
Democrats spread lies while throwing stones at the handful of right-of-center news outlets.
Luckily, the American people seem to be getting hip to the game.
Despite a disinformation campaign like never seen before, Trump’s approval rating is creeping up, as are his odds for winning re-election.
Conversely, trust in the media is as low as it’s ever been.
That’s bound to happen when you have propagandists like Chuck Todd trying to gaslight the American people.
