Protests over the death of George Floyd have spiraled into madness.
The so-called mainstream media have struggled to spin a narrative that excuses rioting and looting.
And one top Obama official put forth an insane theory about the violent protestors.
The murder of George Floyd has thrown the nation into chaos for over a week.
The peaceful protests descended into madness in the blink of an eye, largely due to radical agitators like the terror group Antifa.
However, the Democrats and their media allies tried to run with the story that it was right-wing extremists causing the violence, but that quickly fell apart.
First, one agitator who was caught on camera paying young black kids to throw bricks and cause mayhem was a Bernie Sanders campaign staffer.
The “right-wing extremists” narrative also seemed to crumble when Hollywood celebrities offered bail money for protesters who were arrested – obviously Hollywood leftists would not be bailing out white supremacists.
But former Barack Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice spun a different narrative during a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer.
Rice dusted off the old Russiagate playbook and blamed the Russians for sowing chaos on the streets of America.

No matter how many times the story falls apart, Democrats refuse to let go of the Russian collusion hoax.
Rice’s Russiagate deflection comes at an interesting time because dozens of Obama officials are testifying before Congress about the unmasking and apparent entrapment of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
It’s certainly convenient for the Democrats and Obama’s legacy that the nationwide protests are overshadowing the very serious probe into the Obama administration.
Obama himself has spoken out about the protests almost daily, but obviously had nothing to say about his administration yet again mired in scandal.
And while the so-called mainstream media fawns over Obama, they ignore the fact that he presided over several controversial deaths involving the police.
After Baltimore resident Freddie Gray died in the back of a police van, the city experienced devastating riots.
Obama called the rioters and looters “thuggish,” but received little blowback.
One can only imagine what the media response would be if Trump said something similar.
Obama and his cronies will do anything to deflect from the calamities started in his administration.
