The mainstream media’s non-stop obsession with President Trump continued Friday, with MSNBC anchors absolutely unloading on the Commander-in-Chief’s CPAC address; claiming his speech was “absurd” and reminiscent of “Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.”
Network anchors Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle attacked the President’s remarks within seconds, saying his “meandering speech” was packed with “lies” and is something normally heard in Iran or Russia.
“A sprawling, truly sprawling, meandering speech by the President. The likes of which […] I’m used to having heard from Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro or Erdogan. President Putin gives something like this every year, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used to give speeches like this,” said Velshi.
“It was absurd across the board… Historically, the amount of lies the President has told and this administration over the last year, that is unprecedented,” added Ruhle.

MEDIA COLLUSION: CNN and MSNBC PROMOTED Russia-Backed Anti-Trump Rally
The fallout from last week’s indictment of thirteen Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election continues to rock the mainstream media, with many critics pointing out the liberal networks’ favorable coverage of a Kremlin-backed anti-Trump event in New York City.
Media Research Council released a shocking video Tuesday, showing CNN and MSNBC’s glowing coverage of the ‘Trump is NOT My President’ rally outside of Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.
“While the two liberal anti-Trump networks offered heavy coverage of the anti-Trump rally throughout the day, a check of coverage between noon and 5:00 p.m. Eastern found that the Fox News Channel offered only a short re-cap (66 seconds) at the start of their 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour,” writers MRC.
At one point, MSNBC host Alex Witt even asks who “organized this rally?”
“Right now, this is lots of different groups of people who have come together,” responds the reporter, “with no, necessarily, official leader, and that’s been some of the criticism.”

MAD MADDOW: Rachel Unveils ‘THE TRUTH’ Behind Trump’s Davos Visit
The conspiracy theorists at MSNBC struggled this week to wrap their heads around why the President of the United States would attend a worldwide economic summit; instead baselessly claiming that Trump was visiting Davos, Switzerland so he could -of course- meet with Russian.
Hyper-liberal anchor and full-time Trump hater Rachel Maddow used her show to promote the newest tin-foil hat conspiracy theory that the Commander-in-Chief was visiting the global forum to secretly meet with Russian officials and businessmen.
In a brilliantly timed screen shot, a reporter for the Intercept grabbed Maddow’s breathless coverage of Trump’s international visit, revealing all the names of Russian agents Trump’s team could possibly meet with during their time in Davos.
