It's almost as if Jill Stein doesn't want people to acknowledge that her voters helped elect Donald Trump.

Boy, Jill Stein sounds more than a little panicked when pushed by MSNBC's Alex Witt about her possible effect on the election in light of the Russia indictments. It's almost as if she doesn't want people to acknowledge that her voters elected Donald Trump.

“No, we were not aware,” Stein said. “Let me say we were aware of other kinds of interference. For example, we know that $6 billion in free air time was given to Donald Trump by the big networks. Six billion, this was twice as much as Hillary Clinton’s campaign and four times as much as Bernie Sanders’ campaign and way more than the independent candidates.”

Witt pointed out she had Stein as a guest several times, but Stein kept talking over her.
“Donald Trump, he was damn good, that was the word, he was damn good for the networks even though he was not good for America.,” Stein said. “The point I am making here, Alex, is we don’t want to miss the forest here through the tree. Yes, there was Russia interference but there was compelling interference going on by way of media and the DNC. Did the DNC did not rig the primaries?”

(No, Jill, the DNC didn't. But thanks for reinforcing Russian disinformation. Again.)

She continues to talk as if she was a viable candidate instead of a handy tool for Putin to leverage against Hillary Clinton. Sucks to be Jill!

I sure wish Alex Witt asked Stein what she did with the $2 million she scammed from voters to allegedly pay for a recount, but I guess that's already gone far down the memory hole.
