Just a day after the Congressional baseball shooting, one MSNBC reporter is already pointing at least one finger on… you guessed it, President Donald Trump.
“I know what I am trying to say here, and I’ll try and give you a parallel to help you understand,” Brzezinski said. “What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this president is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news. I think it’s that simple, and we’re desensitized if we even argue it.”
Brzezinski added: “Well, Joe, I think that, very carefully, we have to talk about the added dynamic here. Because you have the right and the left, the extremes on the right and the left. You have fake news. You have conspiracy theorists, who are really muddying the waters. And we have become desensitized.”
“We also have a president who pushes fake news and conspiracy theories. From birtherism to promoting violence on the campaign trail,” Brzezinski went on. “I mean, this is the new dynamic here. I’m not putting anything squarely on the president, but I have to say that this is the new added dynamic to what is a very dangerous climate.”
