Did you notice the change last night?

Did you notice the change last night? Our eagle-eared analysts did!

Rachel was slickly slip-sliding away. Gaze on what she kept saying:
MADDOW (5/8/17): We had known before today that whatever happened with Mike Flynn, the White House has been telling a story about him that does not add up, that does not make sense.

For example, just as one part of this, Vice President Mike Pence, he was the head of the transition, right? He was the head of the transition when the transition was notified multiple times, including in person twice by Flynn's lawyers, and in writing by Congress, that Mike Flynn had taken foreign payments.

Foreign payments to Flynn
were also the subject of multiple contemporaneous press reports. NBC News now reports that the Trump transition had direct knowledge of Mike Flynn's payments from foreign sources, but nevertheless, Vice President Mike Flynn—excuse me, Vice President Mike Pence, head of the transition, he proclaims that he was perfectly ignorant of that fact until weeks after Mike Flynn was fired.
How strange! For months, Our Own Rhodes Scholar used a different formulation as she told this story again and again and again. She kept saying that Michael Flynn had been "on the Turkish government payroll."

There was never any reason to make that claim, except it made the story better. But she said it again and again and again.

Pleasingly, this made us feel tribally good. For this and many other pleasures, we rewarded our weirdly grinning corporate favorite with a nice bump in the ratings.

By now, even Maddow seems to have seen that this formulation can't be sustained at this time. Can we tell you what she hasn't done?

She hasn't posted that stupid DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS sign and conned us about the way she always corrects herself. Presumably, there's an obvious reason for that.

That silly game was always a con, a con she worked on us rubes. The game was reserved for tiny errors that no one could possibly care about. In the process, Rachel established an utterly bogus belief about her vast moral greatness, though only among us rubes.

As a simple matter of fact, Rachel Maddow, the corporate clown, just isn't obsessively honest. This basic fact has been plain for years. Last night, she continued to slip-slide away from an unjustified, pleasing claim which she repeated for months.

The stupid claim was always a con. In fairness, it made us liberals feel morally good, and it helped out with her ratings.

For what it's worth, Flynn seems virtually crazy to us, which of course is a shame and a loss to the world. Maddow's not far from the ballpark.

For the record: Other parts of that blockquote involve stretchers too. Maddow and her sycophants routinely do terrible work.


  1. Wow! Three Maddow bashing columns in one day. Your mental illness is becoming as bad as Trump's.

    1. I'm so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband and I have been married for about 7 years now. We are happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr OGUNDU can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give it a trial. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr OGUNDU. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com

    Somerby's con.

  3. "She kept saying that Michael Flynn had been 'on the Turkish government payroll.'"

    "There was never any reason to make that claim, except it made the story better."
    I don't understand. Wasn't Flynn a "Foreign Agent" for the Turkish government?

  4. I hate it when TDH picks nits like this.

    New details are emerging about former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s decision to register as a foreign agent of Turkey earlier this month.


    Flynn’s Turkish lobbying linked to Russia

    The former national security adviser’s client had business dealings in Russia and worked with an executive in Russian oil companies on Turkish lobbying projects.


    Michael Flynn Was Paid to Represent Turkey’s Interests During Trump Campaign



    WASHINGTON (AP) — Targeted in widening investigations of his foreign entanglements, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, is at odds with his former Turkish client over two unusual payments totaling $80,000 that Flynn’s firm sent back last year to the client. The disagreement points to inconsistencies in Flynn’s accounts to the U.S. government about his work for foreign interests.

    Flynn’s company, Flynn Intel Group, told the Justice Department in March that the two $40,000 payments were consulting fees for unspecified work. But Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin has told The Associated Press that the payments from Flynn’s firm were refunds for unperformed lobbying.
