WATCH: MSNBC’s Katy Tur slams Trump’s claim he doesn’t know who the Proud Boys are

Published

on

On MSNBC this Wednesday, host Katy Tur played back video from earlier in the day where President Trump seemingly walked back his comments from the previous night’s debate where he said the far-right nationalist group Proud Boys should “stand back” but “stand by.”

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Trump said that the group should stand back and allow law enforcement to do their work, while claiming that he doesn’t even know who the Proud Boys are.

According to Tur, Trump still can’t say the words “I condemn white supremacy.” She also wasn’t buying his claim of ignorance regarding the Proud Boys, since they’ve been repeatedly covered in the media.

“I think he probably does know who they are, and if he doesn’t, maybe one of his aides might want to whisper it in his ear,” she said.

Trump supporters linked to Steve Bannon pushing ‘fantastical rumors’ to try to ‘pizzagate’ Joe Biden: report

Published

NBC News on Thursday published a blockbuster report on efforts to smear former Vice President Joe Biden.

"Some of the same people who pushed a false conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton that first emerged in 2016 are now targeting Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son, with similar falsehoods. Their online posts are garnering astronomical numbers of shares on social media," NBC News correspondents Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny reported Thursday.

"The fantastical rumors, which NBC News is declining to repeat verbatim, echo specific plot points central to 'pizzagate,' a viral disinformation campaign that predates QAnon but also falsely alleges a vast conspiracy of child abuse," NBC News explained. "There is an important difference, however. The pizzagate-style rumors in 2016 were largely confined to far-right message boards like 4chan and parts of Reddit. But the Hunter Biden iteration of the same conspiracy theory took off last weekend with the help of speculation from conservative TV hosts and members of Congress. Their theorizing can be traced back to a new website that has been promoted by President Donald Trump and his surrogates."

Pennsylvania AG warns Trump campaign poll watchers to stop videotaping voters

On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported that the attorney general of Pennsylvania is warning Trump campaign surrogates to stop videotaping voters dropping off mail-in ballots.

"In a statement, Josh Shapiro, the Democratic state attorney general, said, 'Pennsylvania law permits poll watchers to carry out very discrete and specific duties — videotaping voters at drop boxes is not one of them,'" reported Blake Montgomery.

"The campaign has filed complaints with Philadelphia officials based on the videos, alleging fraud on the part of several voters who submitted two or three ballots, according to The New York Times," continued the report. "The Trump campaign initially said the purpose of the videotaping was to catch voters who dropped off a large number of fraudulent ballots rather than one or two, according to the Times."
