It would not be a Saturday morning if President Trump did not take to Twitter to vent about his latest grievance. This time he took aim at NBC News and in particular Chuck Todd...
When will Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd and @NBCNews start talking about the Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL and stop with the Fake Trump/Russia story?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 1, 2017
It is the same Fake News Media that said there is "no path to victory for Trump" that is now pushing the phony Russia story. A total scam!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 1, 2017
It was not immediately apparent what NBC coverage Trump was taking issue with, but as The Hill notes, Chuck Todd on Friday interviewed top Washington lawyer Abbe Lowell and former Obama press secretary Josh Earnest on “MTP Daily” about the latest Russia developments.
Clearly, and correctly, President Trump is upset that so little coverage is focused on the increasingly intriguing surveillance state leaks and admissions - supported by facts and actual evidence - rather than trying to keep the Russians-did-it narrative alive in a desperate effort to avoid any blame or self-reflection with regard the election, the Clinton campaign, or the post-election division being sponsored by leftists everywhere.
But then again, as Upton Sinclair famously wrote, "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!"
