So this person Marc Lotter used to be a spokesman for Mike Pence. He's now a regular on MSNBC, but yesterday he went too far with Nicolle Wallace. Her takedown of his lies in defense of Donald Trump was a thing of beauty.

First up, Lotter wondered aloud if Bob Mueller was trustworthy. Wallace could not believe he was using that whispering campaign tactic on her show.

"You don’t know if you can trust Bob Mueller? Why can’t you say you trust a former FBI director who worked for Republicans and Democrats who kept this country safe after the worst terror attacks on our soil? You can’t say you trust Bob Mueller?

...I hope they are paying you a lot of money."

Lotter then pushed the argument that because the Hillary Clinton campaign paid for opposition research that showed Donald Trump's campaign seeking out hacked emails from the Russians, that means Hillary Clinton's campaign is complicit with...what, the hacking of her own emails?

He's basically pushing that Hannity word salad of "campaign and money and hacking and Russians and Hillary", mixing it up to serve as pro-Trump propaganda.

Wallace was done with him.

"I’ll send an e-mail to friends at Fox, and you can peddle your propaganda there.”
