Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier said during a recent appearance on MSNBC that Trump is seizing power like a tyrant. Naturally, she got absolutely no push back from host Katy Tur.

MSNBC’s Katy Tur Lets Rep. Speier Claim President Trump Is Seizing Power Like A ‘Tyrant’
On Tuesday’s MSNBC Live with Katy Tur, Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) expressed her “concern” that the President “is systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the Presidency.”
Of course, host Katy Tur made no effort to push back on Speier’s ridiculous comments. Considering her record, it’s no surprise she gave her implicit support for Speier’s ludicruous claims.
She continued: “This is the conduct of someone who could become a tyrant if we don’t step in and speak out against him. I think he is being so unpresidential and he is undermining the very foundation of this country and the institutions that we hold so dear and that are protected in the Constitution of the United States.”
Obviously, President Trump has done nothing to “shut down” other branches of the government, nor has he done anything to suggest he is seizing power to become a “tyrant.” In fact, many of his policies have reduced the burden of government. Furthermore, criticizing other departments and branches is not in any way the same as shutting them down.

That is just so stupid. Not to mention completely untrue.
