‘We definitely got under their skin’: Rob Reiner revels in freaking out the Kremlin with his Russia investigation

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, filmmaker Rob Reiner chortled at the Kremlin for having a meltdown over his video project looking into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

With Joy Reid name-dropping Reiner’s Committee To Investigate Russia, the MSNBC host pointed out, “It has already brought the full force of the Russian propaganda machine into attack mode against Morgan Freeman — the Kremlin attacking you and Morgan Freeman.”

“Yes,” the filmmaker smirked. “We definitely got under their skin, no question about it. When you see the thousands of bots and trolls come out after you, you know you’ve done something right.”

Reid pressed Reiner on what he hopes to achieve.

“We need to let Americans know how critical this is,” Reiner explained. “Not only the disinformation campaign, the hacking of DNC and Podesta and all that, but cyber warfare and what it can do. This is a new form of warfare, we are at war in a cyber war and we don’t know how yet to defend ourselves. We need that 9/11-type commission so we can understand what happened to us and protect ourselves in the future.”

Reiner then took up Trump’s relationship with Russia.

“Is it a consciousness of guilty that this administration will not meet Russia on a battlefield Russia is claiming?” Reid asked.

“You could look at it as a consciousness of guilt, but you could also look at it as self-preservation and self-dealing,” Reiner replied. “Everything with Trump is about him. He doesn’t care about anything except him.”

She and co-host Joy Behar were arguing over Trump supporters when McCain blew up.

“Being the sacrificial Republican every day,” she said. “I’m just trying to — don’t feel bad for me, bitch. I’m paid to do this, okay? Don’t feel bad for me.”

Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote

Published

on

Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.

Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.

Trump flips out over ‘RIGGED’ hearings as Democrats grill Hope Hicks

Published

on

President Donald Trump ranted on Twitter while his former communications director testified before the House Judiciary Committee.

Hope Hicks complied with a congressional subpoena and testified behind closed doors to the Democrat-led panel, and the president raged online as word leaked out that a White House lawyer was objecting to many of the questions about her government service.

"The Dems are very unhappy with the Mueller Report, so after almost 3 years, they want a Redo, or Do Over. This is extreme Presidential Harassment," Trump tweeted. "They gave Crooked Hillary’s people complete Immunity, yet now they bring back Hope Hicks."
