VIDEO - Guilt by Association: Mitchell Sneers That Montana Assault Is ‘Extension’ of Trump | MRCTV

[See NewsBusters for more.] Guilt by association. That’s what Andrea Mitchell believes. Despite the fact that Donald Trump is on another continent, the Andrea Mitchell Reports anchor thinks that the assault against a journalist by a Montana congressional candidate is an “extension” of the President. Talking about Greg Gianforte’s attack on Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, the MSNBC host connected, “There is so much hostility, frankly, to the press, a lot of it generated by the Donald Trump rallies.” Mitchell declared, “And a lot of my colleagues faced the blowback from that. So, this is kind of an extension of that.” MSNBC has pretty much lost it since the story broke on Wednesday night. Washington Post writer and All In panelist Jennifer Rubin connected the assault to Trump: “The fish rots from the head.”
