NBC news has done it again.
On this morning’s Today Show, it had a feature talking about the possible impeachment of President Trump.
Within that feature, there was footage of Trump being asked whether he was worried about being impeached, and answering “Not even a little bit”.
NBC News then informed us that his tweets “tell a different story”.
OK, so now we’re going to see a tweet that shows how worried Mr. Trump is about impeachment, right?
Well, here’s the tweet it featured:
Only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment. There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can’t impeach. It was the Democrats that committed the crimes, not your Republican President! Tables are finally turning on the Witch Hunt!
Help me out here: does that suggest in any way, shape, manner or form that President Trump is worried about being impeached?
Am I missing something, or does it say that he did nothing impeachable, he can’t be impeached, and the only ones who committed crimes were Democrats.
This is supposed to convince Today viewers that Trump was being dishonest when he said he wasn’t worried about impeachment???
Has NBC News really descended so completely that it puts up material overtly contradictory to what it is trying to sell the public, and expects viewers to not see it? To just nod dumbly, and say “Duhhh, ok, if NBC says so it must be true”?
Apparently, the answer to that question is yes.
If this is any indication, NBC News believes it can reinvent facts right in front of its viewers’ eyes, and they either won’t notice, or they will have been so completely indoctrinated by what NBC is telling them that it won’t matter.
What a sad state of affairs this is. How sad that this is what NBC News has devolved into. How sad that NBC News believes its viewers have devolved as well…
…and how sad that, for a good many viewers, I have no doubt NBC News is 100% correct.
