MSNBC’s Katy Tur Makes False Claim About GOP…Before Forced to Admit “I Don’t Know”

Published

Oh, silly, silly left-wing journalists.

They try so hard to sound official and credible, but their pesky little habit of just making stuff up on the spot can sometimes get the better of them.

Especially when they do so in front of people who actually know what they’re talking about.

The MSNBC host Katy Tur had her own little Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez moment on Monday when she made a claim she either had taken for granted or made up on the spot, that Republicans had been opposed to arming Ukraine against Russian-backed separatists.

You know, because Trump-Russia…or something.

“At the Republican National Convention, the Republican party decided not to arm Ukraine,” she said, although, unfortunately for the narrative Tur was trying to push, she was speaking to someone who actually knew what they were talking about, i.e. Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg

“But Ukraine is armed today, Katy. They are armed now,” Nunberg retorted.

This obviously caused a glitch in Tur’s little Trump-Russia Matrix, forcing her to say “I don’t know” before saying goodbye to her guests.

The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress have, in fact, strongly supported arming Ukrainians, as even Tur’s fellow journalists (I’m using that term lightly) at the Washington Post admit:

Administration officials confirmed that the State Department this month approved a commercial license authorizing the export of Model M107A1 Sniper Systems, ammunition, and associated parts and accessories to Ukraine, a sale valued at $41.5 million. These weapons address a specific vulnerability of Ukrainian forces fighting a Russian-backed separatist movement in two eastern provinces. There has been no approval to export the heavier weapons the Ukrainian government is asking for, such as Javelin antitank missiles.

Congress authorized such sales in 2014 in the Ukraine Freedom Support Act, but the Obama administration never authorized large commercial or government sales, a move widely seen as a de facto decision not to provide lethal weapons to the Ukraine military. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who co-sponsored the law, praised the Trump administration’s move.

So you’re telling me Trump was all about arming Ukrainians pushing back against Russian aggression, while Obama did nothing?

I’m shocked.

There’s more, the Washington Free Beacon tells us:

During the 2016 Republican National Convention, Trump campaign officials decided to amend the Republican platform by changing the language on U.S. assistance to Ukraine. Instead of saying the United States would give them “lethal defensive weapons,” they changed the language to say the U.S. would give them “appropriate assistance.”

But muh Russia collusion.

Save conservative media!

“We have to turn down the capability of these Conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences.” This is how lefties think. Remember: the only right opinion is the left’s opinion. And that’s why America finds itself in such a dangerous place, these days.

Adam Schiff: Under ‘No Circumstance’ Should Trump Receive Intel Briefings After January 20

But Schiff should??

John Salvatore

Adam Schiff is no fan of Donald Trump – this much we’ve known for some time. His latest tirade against the current Commander in Chief, however, may have crossed a line. As chairman of the House Intel Committee, Schiff worked diligently in an attempt to have Trump impeached, with his secretive methods drawing major criticism from the Republican Party. Now, with President Trump less than 72 hours away from civilian life, Schiff is looking to send a parting shot across his bow. From Breitbart: House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that there was “no circumstance” under which President Donald Trump should receive intelligence briefings once he leaves office. Schiff added, “I don’t think he can be trusted with it now, and in the future, he certainly can’t be trusted. Indeed, there were any number of intelligence partners of ours around the world who probably started withholding information from us because they didn’t trust the president would safeguard that information and protect the sources and methods. That makes us less safe. We’ve seen this president politicize intelligence, and that’s another risk to the country.” President Trump’s next moves aren’t exactly clear. Some seem to believe that Donald Trump will find his way into the media sphere, perhaps even launching his own news station. Others have suggested that he could announce his 2024 candidacy on the day of Biden’s inauguration, which would essentially “freeze out” other potential candidates.
