Recorded July 26, 2016. Is it the Russians who are "messing" with our democracy, and Who Could Not Be Moved By Those Speeches? The millionaire pundits on MSNBC are doing the work of their peers in the DNC. Chris Matthews just rhetorically asked as to why the Russians are trying to get Donald J. Trump elected, referring to their hacking of DNC servers. Rachel Maddow and others have minimized the revelations regarding the DNC, or accused the Russians of "messing with" or "interfering in" American elections. Well how about your own political party "messing with" or "interfering in" American elections? That seems to be insignificant to a ruling class who claims they are petrified of Trump yet picked the worst possible candidate to defeat him.
