Fmr. White House Comms. Dir.: Trump 'Knew He Lost' The Election | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC 1


Former White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah tells Andrea Mitchell that soon after the election, Trump "knew he lost" and "misled" his supporters, ending up with "deadly consequences" after Wednesday's siege of the Capitol. She also says she waited until December to resign because she feared, "who might step into the role, if not me?". Aired on 01/08/2021.

  2. Man… so many rats fleeing this sinking 🗑 🔥 of a ship!

      They are jumping from the ship however into dark freezing iceberg and shark filled waters

      Chapter 3 begins

    • You do realize that the majority of the news anchors on NBC are part of the republican party, look how many of them served in the bush administration.

    • @Dennis Vance yea I guess you really enjoy freedom with this wanna be dictator in office 😂 butter fly. 🎻

    • @Jesse Corona u liberals are so is unbelievable.trump was going to open markets in would mean good paying jobs.U moronic fools.

  3. Why are they all talking to this woman? She is an operator, pure and simple.

    • cerveza virus | January 8, 2021 at 5:27 PM | Reply

      She is so clearly an opportunist. Run away.

    • @Terry Dever I didn’t get that at all. I interpreted as she’s blond and pretty but dumb. He didn’t say all pretty blonds are dumb.

    • They are talking to the likes of her to show how pathetic and desperate the whole administration is. All of them have played a massive part in the destruction and disdain of the United States of America. They are drenched in blood

    • Because many of the news anchors are republican, and they are trying to save the republican party.

    • @DEKMAN99 pretty? horse faced peroxide blonde. no thanks.

  4. Balanced and Balancing the words of “CONSEQUENCES”..

  5. Apologists…. just like the Nazis. Convinced they are right until their dying breath. Lock her up.

    She doesn’t get any credit!!! Too late! Get lost!

  7. TheTaskmaster | January 8, 2021 at 4:51 PM | Reply

    Americans: if you’re asked to serve Nazis, it’s your duty to serve your self interest and pride

  8. Too late to speak up now! A faithful abettor and minion for so long!

  9. DJT sucks Funk master | January 8, 2021 at 4:59 PM | Reply

    Trump is guilty of crimes against America. Lock him up

  10. She’s trying to preserve what little shreds she has left of her career

    • Jeffrey Photonboy | January 8, 2021 at 5:54 PM | Reply

      This is her throwing out her RESUME. She probably has a few days left and is actively looking for a job. It’s also her chance to show “outrage” over what happened and claim some sort of morals. In all fairness she’s a staffer but if you’re going to be a whistleblower to wrongdoing it’s kind of late in the game.

    • @edgwaterprog That is because many of the news anchors are republican and think they can save their party.

    • She’ll survive she’s an attractive white women, someone will employ her. Maybe Fox or OAN.

    • @Steyrshrek1 or nbc, look at the number of the top anchors at nbc, many served under bush.

    • @Cat Dooley without a doubt and contrary to the whining from the Right Wing.

    If this is what republicans think of as “orderly and smooth”, no republican should ever serve in public office again.

  12. But it took her this long to say something. She isn’t any better she is also an enabler.

  13. J&A Burchfield | January 8, 2021 at 5:17 PM | Reply

    This is SO FUNNY!! She really is trying to recover her reputation. That is ALL!! I hope she NEVER finds another job because of her Trump service!! No integrity!!

  14. Call it a hunch, but I don’t think Trump hired her for the reasons she believes.

    • For her brains. He grabs them by the brain because “they let you, when you’re a celebrity.” Trump is the biggest brain ever.

      I agree, John S. as the french poet Baudelaire wrote: the flowers of evil – but Trump- opponents would consider this as sexist – so it’s dangerous to mention

    • All of these peroxide blondes have to prove their loyalty. You fill in the blanks-

    • She is striking!

    • johns s ,i love your writing ,i’m sure you’d get an absolute blast out of barry humphries character .sir les patterson .the writing for sir les is spectacular and so clever . you know ,when i saw her that’s exactly what i thought .trumpy must have got a few good ideas about secretaries and staff from watching “charlie wilson’s war ” and his choice of female staff .i bet he thought to himself i can do better than charlie wilson . i just love some of these youtube comments .some people are so gifted in how they think and write .[as good as hitch with his spoken word] keep them coming . i’ve even started a file for outstanding youtube comments

  15. OMG she didn’t resign until it was clear he had lost. She still thinks he did good things, he did nothing and she knows it!

  16. BS please who she selling this $hit to.

  17. is it clear now that lack of honesty has consequences? wow

    • .. amazing it only took until psychopaths stormed the capitol building to recognize it and even say something about it.. the worst thing is that some of these deluded people try and compare what happened on the 5th to the george floyd protests.. I mean wtf, I saw a picture of a domestic terrorist in the capitol building with a handful of zip tie handcuffs for, well you know, the hostage taking that would have happened had they come across elected politicians.. not to mention from the chatter I’ve been coming across from these insurrectionists online in circles of their ilk, they fully plan on coming back armed, willing to shed blood and die for fabrications they believe in..

  18. Running 25 of the 26 miles in a marathon…then acting like she was never there. That’s what she’s doing here.

  19. “Lack of honesty” is rich.
    “Flat out lied “ is the reality.

    “The lack of honesty with the American people had deadly consequences.”
    Is she talking about the election or the pandemic?

    Much of Trump’s presidency had deadly consequences.
