Santelli 'Meets The Press': "You Picked Sides... On Election Night, I've Never Seen You So Unhappy"

Tyler Durden's picture

Judging by the outpouring of liberal denigration among the twitterati...

Rick Santelli's appearance on Chuck Todd's 'Meet The Press' this morning struck one too many nerves of reality.

Standing alone against the wall of establishment media, Santelli began...

"What's going on here is really so politically driven... where was all this uproar in June when the DNC emails were hacked...this wasn't made an issue because it would have put the emails in Hillary's server right in the thick of it... that's why this went under the radar - this is all tied together"


The shocked looks on the faces on Andrea Mitchell, Chuck Todd, and David Brooks was only bettered by their repeated efforts to refocus the narrative on Putin "as the devil and journalist-murderer" and Trump "as a puppet" but Santelli was not done with them...



"I never saw you so unhappy as on election night... you picked sides, everyone picked sides.."


...which was met stunning levels of cognitive dissonance from Chuck Todd "picked sides? who picked sides? Where?", and Andrea Mitchell "That's not true Rick, that's just not true... let's get back to the facts here," who then repeated (once again) that the "Russians have weaponized hacking... they did it in Ukraine, they're doing it in Germany now..."


"people in charge of intelligence are political as well here," Santelli chimes in, "let me see the 'Russian missiles on the Cuban island' picture... that's proof, Trump needs to see that.. the hearings are nothing but Kabuki theater."


We suspect the outspoken truthist wil not be invited back.

But it didn't end there, Kellyanne Conway also appeared on the NBC 'news' show but, as president-elect Trump explains, was cut short...

So here is the full interview...

The MSM continues digging its own grave.  ZERO vision and acceptance of the will of the people.

Santelli needs a cabinet position- something that will get him in front of these assholes EVERY day.

Treasury secretary works.....

It's not just a little strange that during the election cycle not once did the DNC or Clinton campaign acknowledge, note, mention or publically memorialize the death of one of their own, Seth Rich, so dedicated to their cause who lay suffering and alone in a pool of his own blood on a DC street for hours wrought by senseless gun violence . It's almost like they wanted us to forget his suffering and existence altogether. For a group that has so many ties to the media and never miss an opportunity to exploit human rights under the guise of gun control it just doesn't make sense that they wouldn't elevate his death to make democrat staffer, Seth Rich, poster child and patron saint for gun legislation ad nauseam. Why have they totally ignored the violent gun death of one of their own and not even bothered to offer a reward for information about a democrat victim of gun violence leading to his assailant's arrest? If I remember correctly, wasn't there also a DC suburb apartment building gas explosion killing a couple of other alleged DNC staffers during the election cycle or primaries, never to be mentioned again as well?

Very Good points...Great post !

Someone (Frontline..maybe) should investigate/publish this story.

The Merovingian's picture

Frontline is total shit too. They just did a hit job piece on Trump that I watched the other night. It was so lopsided and laced with sinister undertones that somehow Trump's election was illegitimate that I finally just turned it off with about 10 minutes still to go. Fucking hack journalism.

NurseRatched's picture

When Frontline was just beginning, they did a piece on Tourette Syndrome called "Twitch and Shout".  It was supposed to be a sincere, touching, and moving explanation of a horrible disease.  Instead, it was probably the funniest hour ever put on television.  Frontline often takes big swings and misses their target by a mile.  That is in their DNA.

I hate to see Rick's time wasted like this with these useless bags of putrid flesh. Rick should have his own show by himself and they should let him run with it as hard and as far as he wants. The other people on this show? They are why the mainstream media is dying. They are little wooden headed ventriloquist puppets that do exactly what their ruling class masters tell them to.

Is there a secret way to watch this kind of dribbling bullshit MSM without blood coming out of your ears?

What the fuck is up w/ Andrea Mitchell's face, anyway?
It looks like there are all these lumps poppin' out from under her skin....
Is this plastic surgery gone really, really BAD, or what?

his days on nyc tv are numbered

jeff montanye's picture

well, the days of nyc tv are numbered.  as our president, whose days are really numbered, has said "“I don't think I underestimated him (putin), but I think that I underestimated the degree to which, in this new information age, it is possible for misinformation, for cyber hacking and so forth to have an impact on our open societies, our open systems, to insinuate themselves into our democratic practices in ways that I think are accelerating,"

now it would have been more accurate for him to have said "it is possible for foreign sourced information, for cyber leaking or hacking to have an impact on our legacy media's control of our societies and systems in ways that are accelerating."

'We're 2 weeks out from an inauguration and everything's in chaos'

Yes... because your attempt at hegemony has failed and your rotten empire is in its death throes, crumbling before our very eyes... AND YOU MSM SHILLS ARE IN DENIAL. 

What a useless sack of turds these horrible cretins are. 


Gorbachev saw the imminent collapse of the Soviet Union and was able to broker a relatively soft landing.  

The US on the other hand is right royally fucked... the champagne corks have popped, the band plays on, the cutlery is polished, the unwashed locked-up below-deck are ignored and the debate rages on about race/ gender identification while the furniture positioning is adjusted... and the sock puppets and the sheeple are oblivious to the hole torn in the side of the ship by the iceberg and the shortage of life-boats. 

I just hope they don't lash-out at the rest of the planet once they realise they're done for.

You seem to be attempting to ascribe some sort of moral base to this cum sucking, ass fucking, piece of shit, Whore Crinimal,  fucked us out of the either, so called "president".

Now, he's trying desperately to save his ass (for Reggie's Rigid Cock and, possibly, for Michell/Micheal's.

I'm so fed up with federal lies and bullshit that all future encounters will be led by lead.  There is nothing provided by government except lies and proaganda.  And all of it is parroted on the MSN (as in Main Stream News).  I no longer watch, haven't since their mega-lies of 2008 and beyond.

I have a feeling that I will eventually be a news headline. 

I plan to shoot the first news reporter that shows up on my front step, right in the head, live, for any reason.  I'm serious about this.

A conflagration of conflations... and none of them ignigting anything - since intel-souced MSM bullshit isn't flammable.

Why do the liberal reporters and liberal interviewers always look like they are suffering from Down Syndrome?


Robert Trip's picture

Because they are.

This is not meant to be a disparaging remark aimed at the Downs Sydrome Community, bless their souls.

"Twitch and Shout."  LOL.  They can't be all bad.

I also saw that hit piece--nothing said that was positive. Surprised they did not air it just before the election.


Ben Rhodes has said it on Iran--its important to control the narrative--aka lie.

Jon Gruber said it on obamacare


both were proud of what they did.

PBS/NPR...I applaud them for not speaking to me as if I'm 8 year old,

but I agree with your thinking.  They are all about the establishment/big gov/Fake News.

I must admit, I was a fan(NPR/PBS) and used to pledge regularly.  Sickening..this corporate,

big money, coup d'etat.

Muppet's picture

PBS/NPR, I have no problem with them.  All candidates deserve strong criticism.   I watched the program and it was not balanced but I was not swayed from voting Trump.   I kept thinking, Trump may have some taint BUT imagine if they did a show on Hillary.    Overall, PBS/NPR present things in an adult fashion and see little problem with bias inherent in any presentation.    They certainly present better than most media sources.

treefeller's picture

While PBS is generally more genteel in their presentation, NPR has gone so far over the edge as to be unrecogniseable from when they first came on the air waves.

Pehaps the vagisil bubble bath they recommended is wearing off.   National propaganda radio has been blantant for 20 yrs.  Must of been some good vagisil you soaked in!!

PBS/NPR cant even mention Trump in a sentence without blowing a coronary or other major hemorage.   Those stations have become the new Comedy Central.

Applaud  NPR for not speaking to you as an 8 year old.   They were speaking to you as a 5 year old.   Thank god you saw the 3 yr descripency.   

HedgeJunkie's picture

What is sickening is that you've bought into this lie, even after 2008. There are even more lies out there that you're not even aware of yet. I commend you for finding Zero Hedge, I suggest you STFU and do a LOT of reading.  Particulary the comments.

JRobby's picture

Not wise to bring Santelli on. He will speak his mind. Just because he works for the same company they think he will toe the party line? When has he done that on CNBC? Never in my memory.

The Deacon's picture

It was very one sided.

I found the soundtrack they used....The Friday the 13th ,"Hey its midnight, let's go for a skinny dip" music they played the whole show very telling.

Labelers of fake news are peddling fiction and false narratives.

Subconsciously you probably know this, but here's a tip: if you're seeing it on teevee, it is at best worthless sophistry and damnable lies at worst.

Froman's picture

Would you have expected anything different from the "Propaganda Broadcasting System" or "National Propaganda Radio"?  They are probably crapping their collective pants that now there are the votes and an individual in the Executive Branch that will sign a piece of legislation that cuts funding to those parasites as it should have happened long, long ago.

imaginalis's picture

Eerything they accuse Russia of is an indictment of them selves. Election interference was exactly the objective of the mainstream media.

rosiescenario's picture after day, night after night the MSM with its poster child CNN delivered totally biased, one sided commentary in support of Hitlery and the elitist dems. Even Pravda, during the cold war never was as biased and one sided as our MSM.

Watch the Alinsky/Progressive play book closely.  Everything they accuse the opposition of committing, they've done in spades as well.
