Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theories Pay Off For Anti-China Group | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

  1. just when I thought trumpers were tinfoil hat crazy. this is a new level…..

    • People don’t understand that Trump and his administration are the executive or CEO of the Federal bureaucracy. To say a deep state within that bureaucracy is secretly doing things contrary to Trumps interest the last two years is the same as saying Trump and his administration a are so incompetent that they cannot find and address such efforts. Yet some third rate paper with almost zero resources to oversee the Federal bureaucracy compared to the Trump administrators can find out all these things.

    • Lol it would sound that way if you were stupid enough to buy the Maddow sells to you. This is nonsense and even more hilarious than the Russian cyber terrorist plot. People with brains are laughing at Maddow while watching this.

    • @myko freder What a completely naive and idiotic comment. They’re right in plain sight and there is zero Trump can do about it. We call them Democrats.

      Honestly speaking nothing the news says can be trusted nowadays apparently, both sides are so blind to things going on around them they only believe things that support their political views. Democrats will believe anything on the news, while Republicans will only listen to Republican Pro-Trump media, and some random guy recording himself with his phone talking about Conspiracy theories. Both sides are crazy, also America is not great and it won’t be. Right now what apparently makes America great is the hate spread by both sides, and neither can take any responsibility, Democrats will blame everything on Republicans , while Republicans do the same with Democrats however they add immigrants into the mix as well.

  2. So basically it’s part of the Trump cult.
    ●A system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
    ●A relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.
    ● A misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.
    ● A cult of personality surrounding the leaders.

    Another group that pretends to “emphasize morality” and then supports a man with dozens of credible accusations of sexual assault against him, who practises corruption on a breath-taking scale.

      @Vito Antinarella – You are the perfect example of “Can’t fix stupid”

    • @Dennis Harrell, yep. Its so sad. We are in a place right now where some people are so commited to hurting other people that they will do it at the detriment of the country. Thats all this is doing, promoting hate, bigotry and division. How they really dont see that, is hard to comprehend.

      @Vito Antinarella bla bla bla…why is it you trump parrots always ask for ” the evidence “??? Do YOU have proof proving otherwise?? Well do you?? If you do post the proof or just STFU!!!

    • @Vito Antinarella Exactly. Trump’s, “grab them by the pu$$y” comment was probably a lie because he lies so constantly that it’s like he is the father of lies. However, his well corroborated unannounced walks into pageant dressing rooms to google the shocked naked girls seems very credible and consistent with other complaints. 🙂

    • @Vito Antinarella So bill cosby was innocent. He was wrongfully convicted??? Only took like 54 years and 54 women to get him. Trump is PAST TWO DOZEN accusations. Why is it that rich guys like bill gates who could buy everything trump owns in an afternoon, they are not accused 24 times? Name a rich guy. Cant come up with OVER TWENTY accusations, can you?

    Bush and Trump both failures at international relations maybe it’s just a Republican thing . Failure!

  5. I really wonder if this is the new alternative to the NRA for funneling money into american elections. Where does this money come from ?

    • Sure. Guns and God… those have always been protected rights under the US Constitution, and therefore not as regulated… and therefore easier avenues to manipulate. Add greed into that and McConnell’s Citizens United case at the USSC, and you have the dark money base of the current Republican party… guns, God and greed…

  6. WTH did I just watch. I am a conspirisist to an extent. But this is so coocoo.

    • what you watched is American tendency to conspiracy theories being monetised and exploited by a cult. Hardly surprising all things considered. Land of opportunity for those who believe in alien take overs. Doesn’t happen in countries with universal health care who treat mental health issues. Scientology is very similar. I support china banning cults.

    TheBush family there’s another fishy family

  8. Not ‘epic’…Epoch!

  9. Instead of taking these wackos head on and disputing their crazy claims, a better approach would be to make up even WILDER claims about them. Disputing with facts doesnt work with morons. MORE moronic fiction just might jar them lose from their attachment.

  10. To the man with the underground theory.. there is a woman that has a voicemail from her husband that captures the moment the towers fall; he can be heard talking to her about loving her and then screaming “oh god the fire”. I don’t think he can be revived from that.. RIP ❤️

  11. George W Bush was also a big embarrassment to America.
    His infamous lie that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction
    was the biggest lie of the century that led to the destruction
    of Iraq and its people. Also many Americans died in that
    unnecessary war. Now he sits in his ranch and enjoys a
    peaceful and tranquil life after creating a mess in his wake
    as president.

  12. So where is the money to support the Epoch Times actually coming from?

    I noticed that commercial popping up on my feed a lot too. No matter how many times I say not interested.

  14. It’s easier to fool people than convince them they’ve been fooled.

  15. Rachel, it’s Epoch (EEpock), not epic.

  16. The Falun Gong sounds a lot like the Cult of Trump and it’s freak show Q-anon followers…(floating through walls)

  17. So yeah, Oh I am down foru you.
    Big time.
    But if this wing nut spin proves out, your courage & power$ of critical thinking may, dare I say, be a diminishing factor in your fifteen minutes .
    Keep an open mind.
    Let history write itself & pray to be on the correct side of it.
    Your opinions are just that.
    You cannot judge on what you have no personal experience with maybe the guy CAN .
    You are brilliant.

  18. Keep love in your hearts and you will be able to see the truth wherever you go! There is an explanation to why our world is filled with evil hate and war and it is coming to light as we speak!

    Something like 1/8 of all of my YouTube ads are long ads by Epoch times, all pro-trump, all starring that dude, all featuring him flashing that WP hand sign about 20 times a minute choreographed to occur at conspiratorially significant moments. Srsly, have y’all seen the same?

  20. just fast forward to 13:00 mins. jesus christ you know how to waste time.
