    Going after Trump with some conspiracy theories fresh after the death of four brave and righteous young Americans. Glad that some on the left knocked her down, these are the left wingers I remember as a young lad.

    Rachel Maddow called out by fellow liberals for pushing anti-Trump conspiracy

    MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s latest anti-Trump conspiracy theory was so outlandish that even the dependably liberal HuffPost criticized it as "so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map."

    On Thursday evening, "The Rachel Maddow Show" opened with a somber 25-minute diatribe that attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the nation of Chad. Maddow essentially claimed that the inclusion of Chad, which recently pulled its troops out of Niger, in the revised travel ban resulted in extremist attacks such as the one that left four Americans dead.

    The HuffPost, which is so anti-Trump that it refused to even cover him in the political section during the early stages of his campaign, published a story headlined, "What the hell was this Rachel Maddow segment?" The MSNBC host proclaimed that Chad’s pullout from Niger "had an immediate effect in emboldening ISIS attacks," but the HuffPost easily shot down her theory.

    Colby College Department of Government assistant professor Laura Seay told the HuffPost that "any expert" would have said Maddow's conspiracy theory was "crazy" and the pullout of Chadian troops isn’t necessarily related to the Trump’s travel ban.

    "Everybody that I know is appalled by this. I would like to think that Maddow's researchers are more responsible," Seay told the HuffPost.

    I won't be surprised if the "leftist" media starts doing somewhat of a 180, on Trump. They're in it for the money,; and the Trump bashing 24\7 hasn't really had the predicted effect.

    So was the pullout related or not? Someone saying it wasn't necessarily related isn't knocking anyone down. Unless simple name calling is enough.

    I don't know how anyone can stand listening to that mugging, smirking chatterbox for more than a minute. Good God he is obnoxious.

    Rachel Maddow is an embarrassment even to liberals. I think it was because he was never circumcised as a child, and now he feels insecure about the way his crank looks. Hey Rach, it’s never to late to get that extra flap cut off.

    Chad is on the opposite side of the country...and their troops were engaged with Boko Haram...not ISIS.

    From left leaning Slate:

    Examining the basic geography of the crisis makes this clear. Chad’s involvement in Niger was limited to the fight against Boko Haram, a Nigeria-based extremist movement that terrorizes civilians in northwest Nigeria, southeast Niger, southern Chad, and northern Cameroon. The Chadians were deployed to the Diffa region, where they fought effectively against Boko Haram and restored a semblance of stability to communities the extremists had terrorized. Their withdrawal has upset communities in the Diffa region, who (rightly) believe that their own government’s forces are incapable of protecting them from a renewed Boko Haram threat.

    As you can see from this map, Diffa is on the opposite side of Niger from Tongo Tongo, where the ambush occurred.

    One thing is for sure. Maddox know's more about this than Trump.

    I guess taking down Maddow for something is more gratifying than asking the CiC what the actual fuck.
