FAKE NEWS: Rachel Maddow Blames Venezuela Riots on ‘Trump Donations’ (VIDEO)

One of the most laughable and non-credible news hosts, Rachel Maddow, is blaming the violence and protests in Venezuela on President Trump.

The WFB reported:

MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on Thursday night played images of rioting and protests in Venezuela with the chyron “Unrest in Venezuela Over Trump Donations,” while Maddow claimed Venezuelans were “enraged anew” over a Trump Inaugural Committee FEC filing showing a major donation from Citgo Petroleum, an American subsidiary of Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela.

While Maddow did discuss the violence and economic unrest gripping the country, her show continued to air video of protests while she talked about Citgo donating $500,000 to President Trump’s inauguration…

The images were of massive protests against the country’s socialist government bringing about a collapsing economy and starvation, not donations to the Trump inauguration. Maddow herself did not expressly make that claim, but the show’s use of the chyron suggested the connection.

…Maddow’s show effectively drew connections between Citgo’s $500,000 donation to President Trump’s inauguration and the anger gripping the country.

“There have been weeks and weeks and weeks of rioting and violent protests,” she said. “And now today, Venezuelans are enraged anew by this brand new FEC filing from the White House, which shows … while Venezuelans have been rioting in the streets, while there have been acute food shortages and medicine shortages in Venezuela.”…

…”This is a country that should be a rich country, but people have literally been starving in Venezuela,” she said. “Somehow in the midst of this incredible economic and political crisis in Venezuela, Venezuela’s state-run oil company somewhere found a half-million dollars to donate to the very, very, very inexplicably overfunded Trump inauguration.”

Rachel Maddow NEVER mentioned how the countries collapse was due to leftist socialism!
