What disgusts me most about this nation’s political climate is the fact that we’re saddled with a Republican Party bloated with the presence of traitors who seemingly cannot accomplish a single thing despite having more concentrated power than they have had in nearly a century.
A Republican House, a Republican Senate, and a Republican President, and still nothing can be done against even the most ridiculous opposition.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Democratic Congressman David Cicilline, who claimed on Carlson’s show that RT is simply a “Russian propaganda” machine.
The confrontation starts off as Cicilline says the US should “hold them [the Russian government] to account and sanction them,” so that “Russia understands that America isn’t going to allow that.”
Host Tucker Carlson interrupted to ask: “Not to allow what exactly?”
Cicilline stumbles with his response, repeating instead a familiar refrain among politicians in the United States: “Russian RT propaganda” is to blame.
Carlson continues to press Cicilline: “You said RT is a problem. RT is a cable network. It’s a very left-wing one by the way. I don’t watch it, but… RT is a part of the American press corps. Do you think we should ban RT? What are you saying exactly?”
Cicilline does not give a direct answer, saying instead that “the Russian government, led by Vladimir Putin, engaged in a very sophisticated effort to undermine the election of Hillary Clinton.”
He then dwelled a little on the claim that “RT promoted propaganda, fake stories, that were then retweeted on the internet,” going on to slam the channel as “not a news organization.” The lawmaker, though, did not voice any facts to back up his allegations. Fox News’s Carlson seemed to disagree on this, too.
As a side note, this situation also lends credence to the theory that of Vladimir Putin causes those with Jewish blood to foam at the mouth and sob uncontrollably, as this Rhode Island-based degenerate has been consistently anti-war throughout his career until Russia popped into the news cycles.
