Fake News MSNBC hosts Andrea Mitchell – a nasty woman who has unfairly attacked Trump – and notorious liar Brian Williams acted like they had absolutely no idea that the Clinton campaign sought out help from the Ukraine to help her win the 2016 presidential election.
On MSNBC Wednesday morning, two of MSNBC’s most prominent anchors admitted they had no idea what Trump was referring to, when he tweeted out that the Clinton campaign also sought out information from foreign government officials to help boost her campaign, during the 2016 election. After reading the tweet, Brian Williams asked Andrea Mitchell if she knew what he was talking about. “I’m hoping you can help me decipher this,” he asked. “It’s hard to figure out what this is about,” Andrea Mitchell quizzically responded.
The humorous exchange happened during the 9am hour on MSNBC Live. Williams began by reading the tweet, that had just been put out a few minutes before, then asked Mitchell if she could “take a whack” at figuring out its meaning:
They know exactly what Trump is talking about and they are trying to make him look bad by acting like he is just making things up.
BRIAN WILLIAMS: Andrea Mitchell, I said earlier no public events for three days on the president’s calendar. He leaves tonight for Paris, for Bastille day celebrations. What we’ve heard from the president again, three minutes ago on Twitter, I’m hoping you can help me decipher this: ‘Why aren’t the same standards placed on the Democrats. Look what Hillary Clinton may have gotten away with. Disgraceful.’ Do you want to take a whack at that?
MITCHELL: I’m trying to figure it out myself. Earlier he called it a witch hunt, so he’s still on the fake news or what the Democrats are doing, that combo. Perhaps this is a reference to e-mails, since his son voluntarily tweeted out a whole e-mail chain. Nobody was forcing him to do that other than the questions that were raised by The New York Times, and they said they were about to reveal them themselves. So he voluntarily released his e-mails, so perhaps it’s an e-mail reference. But it’s hard to figure out what this is about.
WILLIAMS: Let the record show Andrea Mitchell is always game for a challenge, though sometimes the material leaves us with more questions than answers. [laughter]
