Legal Insurrection -- Joy Reid has done it again, shutting down on her MSNBC show this morning yet another conservative guest who tried to get in a word edgewise. This time it was former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz in the unenviable position of trying to make the case that the meeting between Trump campaign aides and Russians wasn’t the horror the left is making it out to be.
Reid first asked him for his comments, but before he could get started, proceeded to cut him off, launching into her own monologue. When Fleitz asked if he could respond, Reid replied “No. No you cannot, until I’m finished answering the question.” Rightly retorted Fleitz: “you asked me a question and now you’re responding for me.”
As Reid continued to stonewall him, Fleitz observed:“this is a rigged interview.”
The most revealing moment came when Fleitz told Reid “you do not want the other side of the story to get out.”
Reid gave away her game:“what other side of the story could there be?”
Blog Author's Comments: Reid is another of the liberal so-called journalists who is willing to sell her soul to the Democrat plantation overseers. She is one of their useful class, (i.e. right race, sex, shade) for diversity. I guess this is what got her the show with one of the far left 'news organizations.'
What is interesting to me is that these same people were feeling tingles up their legs when Obama said he’d meet, without conditions, the leaders of Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. How wonderful, they gushed. He’s so open-minded and serious and thoughtful. He’s thinking outside the box, and that’s just what we need.
And we will not forget how they cheered his and Hillary’s Russian “reset”. But I guess that was different somehow. This is yet another example of the Left’s propensity to “dish” without being able to “take”. They’re cowards and should be made to feel that way every single day they go ‘on the air’ and make fools of themselves.
Quote For The Day: "We ... deserve [EPA Chief Pruitt's suggestion for a public climate debate], especially since every proposed solution involves raising our taxes, damaging our economy, and making citizens more submissive to federal and global bureaucracies.
Reuters helpfully labels Pruitt “controversial,” journalese for “we don’t like this guy.” But I’m curious what disagreement believers in apocalyptic climate change will offer to Pruitt’s idea, outside of mockery and #science hash tags. They’ll try to dodge a free and fair debate, since their “argument” has been mocking skeptics, equating them with Holocaust deniers, and suing them into silence. That strategy has only emboldened the doubters. And the eco-doomsdayers’ storied track record of bad predictions has hardly won them converts.
“If you’re going to win and if you’re so certain about it, come and do your deal,” Pruitt said. “They shouldn’t be scared of the debate and discussion.”-- Jon Gabriel
