2016 Green Party candidate Jill Stein was on MSNBC this weekend. When the host tried to suggest that Stein was complicit in Russian meddling which supposedly helped Trump win, Stein got pretty angry. She accused the media of giving too much air time to Trump and also accused the DNC of rigging their primary.
The host could barely contain the situation and kept trying to talk over Stein.

Days after the Russian indictments were handed down, Jill Stein appeared on MSNBC today to downplay Russian interference by pointing to American interference in the election.
She told Alex Witt the idea there was this big Russian attempt to back her campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton is absurd, saying, “This doesn’t pass the laugh test.”
She continued on to say there was “other kinds of interference,” like all the airtime the media gave Trump in 2016:
“Yes, there was Russian interference, but remember, there was very compelling interference going on by way of media, by way of the DNC––did the DNC not rig the primary?”
