Video: Rachel Maddow floats conspiracy theory that Trump a ‘foreign agent’

While appearing on Saturday’s edition of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” MSNBC propagandist Rachel Maddow told fellow propagandist Joy Reid she fears President Trump may be a foreign agent, Newsbusters reported.

” I don’t know about you, but we here at AM Joy our heads have been spinning with the nonstop barrage of news this week, so I turned to our in-house expert of making sense of all things madness. Rachel Maddow,” Reid laughably said.

According to Kristine Marsh:

Reid went on to portray the media’s dogged attempt to prove President Trump colluded with Russia to win the election as a never-ending battle, and asked Maddow if the press conference was finally the answer to what they had been searching for.

Maddow claimed this was the first time the country collectively got upset at Trump for how he handled himself around Putin, asking if he was “subordinate to a foreign power.”

“All of a sudden the country has new clarity about the extremity of the concern about the president,” she gushed, adding that it was already established that Russia colluded to help Trump win the 2016 election and that more “time” was needed to prove that his team willingly worked with them to make that happen.

Marsh posted a partial transcript of the relevant portion of the interview:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

REID: I feel like we have spent the last two years doing one story, right? Doing a lot of different angles on this one story. We keep in a way, I feel, getting tricked — turning point, turning point, turning point. Things keep feeling like a turning point. I wonder from your point of view, having done this, again, two years, did Helsinki feel like a turning point in this Russia saga?

MADDOW: The thing that feels new after Helsinki is that the country is shook up and freaked out about it. I mean, the president being oddly and inexplicably and completely deferential to Vladimir Putin is no big surprise. If he had been anything other than that it would’ve been a big surprise. The thought of him doing that to his face, instead of just presumably on their bat phone or however they communicate.


But the fact he did that in person standing next to Putin that shook the country. And I think — I don’t think Republicans are excluded from that. And so I think what that means is the president is not necessarily doing anything new but all of a sudden the country has new clarity about the extremity of the concern about the president. It’s not just did the president get help from Russia to win his election? Yes, he did. What kind of documentation is there and what evidence will ultimately turn up about whether his campaign knowingly accepted that help or maybe worked collectively with the Russians in order to pull off their hack, that continues to be the legal battle that we watch unfold, but there’s this base level question. Like maybe we’ve taken so many turning points, we’ve turned so many corners, we’re back where we started.

The basic question which I think rung so loud for everybody in the country this week was, is our president subordinate to a foreign power? Does our president answer to a foreign government and a foreign leader? And that’s private meeting with Putin where nobody knows what he promised or what he may have given away. The way he responded to Putin when we saw him face-to-face and then the fact that he took under consideration all of these demands from Russia, including handing over Americans to Russia for interrogation. That just — you know, it makes the worst case scenario really palpable. The worst case scenario that the president is a foreign agent suddenly feels very palpable.

A foreign agent?  Seriously?  This sounds to us like the left is so desperate they’ll say or do anything to foment even more hate and possible violence.

Here’s video:

Marsh correctly notes that their arguments ignore “the fact that Trump’s actions on Russia have been much different and much harsher than his rhetoric at that press conference.”

Let’s put it this way:  If Trump really is a foreign agent, he’s probably the worst foreign agent on the planet, given the state of the economy since he became president.  And let’s not forget what he’s done with regard to North Korea.

How much more insane will the left get?
