President Donald Trump is living rent-free in a lot of liberal heads.
But for some, the level of Trump Derangement Syndrome is extreme.
Take MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.
No, I mean take him, please.
The man is just a few fries short of a Happy Meal.
Or to put it simply, deranged.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell tonight opened his show positing that “if Vladimir Putin masterminded the last week in Syria, he has gotten everything he could have asked for.”
He argued that it’s conceivable that Putin could have told Bashar al-Assad to carry out a small chemical attack “just big enough to attract media attention so that my friend in the White House will see it on TV” and then Trump can fire missiles that will “do no real damage” to ensure that the U.S. media will “change the subject from Russian influence” on the White House.
Here’s the full video of his show, titled: The Trump-Putin theory on Syria that can’t be ruled out.
Now, of course, he doesn’t explain in this insane scenario, how Russia looks better by being revealed to have been in the words of Rex Tillerson and Nikki Haley “incompetent” or “complicit” in the chemical weapons still being there, and not gone as Russia guaranteed.
He also doesn’t explain how the Obama administration pushed the fiction that Syria had gotten rid of the chemical weapons “100%,” that that’s the actual false scenario that was pushed on us.
Social media was not kind to O’Donnell.
Wouldn't it be nice if it was impossible to suspect Putin ok'd Assad's gas attack so Trump could fire missiles & change the subject in USA?

Trump could launch a nuclear strike on the Kremlin and liberals would still figure out a way to show it was further proof of Putin's control https://t.co/QGSrtaP6kd

"wouldn't it be nice if it was impossible to suspect" is a great weasel way to float bat shit conspiracy theories. https://t.co/xcRIM1uXfp

MSNBC has made noises that they want to be viewed as more straight news and less as a leftist propaganda site.
They were horribly embarrassed by the Rachel Maddow tax reveal debacle.
This is not a good follow-up if they really want to be taken seriously…
