Remember when the mainstream media tried to tell the truth and not mislead Americans?
After Joe Scarborough’s statement about Trump this morning, there is little doubt any shred of hope we had of the media straightening itself out are over.
While discussing the impeachment hearings, Scarborough accused Trump of being “either an agent of Russia or he’s a useful idiot.”
Way Over the Line
There was a time when Scarborough and Trump were friends, or, at the very least, very friendly acquaintances.
Remember, Scarborough is supposed to be a conservative, or at least he was until Trump became president.
Before Trump ran for president, he was a regular on “Morning Joe.”
Now, Scarborough is trying to sell the MSNBC audience on Donald Trump being an agent of Russia.
This morning, Scarborough stated, “Donald Trump is either an agent of Russia or he’s a useful idiot. Or he’s somewhere in between, we don’t know what it is.
“We will one day, but at the very least he’s a useful idiot or perhaps it’s what John Bolton is now saying in public, and that is Donald Trump’s foreign policy is not run by what’s in the best interest of the United States of America, it’s not run to protect the American people, it is run for what’s in the best interest of his bottom line and it’s run to protect his bank accounts.
“It’s all about the money.”
Now, that is a pretty bold statement to make considering most financial experts have estimated that Trump has lost about 25 percent of his fortune during his presidency, which amounts to more than $1 billion.
The Media vs. Trump
The media is supposed to report the news, not make it, but that is not the world we live in today.
The media does not like Trump, so all they do is report negatively about him.
When there is no negative news or people are not interested, they just invent stories, like Scarborough calling Trump a Russian agent.
Trump has created an environment that has enabled more Americans to go back to work than at any time in modern history.
He is clamping down on immigration, securing better trade deals, rebuilding the military, and improving the VA, all of which have benefitted Americans.
So, Mr. Scarborough, please, before making statements like that, at least have the courtesy to provide some proof of such an outlandish statement.
