A GIANT TEACHABLE MOMENT
“Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory!” resident-elect Donald Trump tweeted Monday afternoon. Yes, imagine.
“We are living in the midst of a giant teachable moment,” notes radio host Rush Limbaugh, in his summation of persistent press reports suggesting that the 2016 election results were compromised by Russian hackers, possibly in Mr. Trump’s favor.
“This is how it happens. This is how fake news takes root and becomes the narrative, becomes the daily script of the inside-the-Beltway soap opera written by the drive-by media. This whole business of Russia hacking our election is fake news with the imprimatur of intelligence agencies and the CIA, and it’s brought to us by the same newspapers that took out, tried to take out Richard Nixon,” Mr. Limbaugh continued. “And if I didn’t know better, I would say they are trying to relive the moment and ‘Watergate’ Donald Trump.”
