MSNBC host Rachel Maddow opened her show Thursday night by blaming President Trump for the violent riots occurring in Venezuela.
Maddow linked the violence in the collapsing country to a half-million dollar donation from Venezuelan state oil company Citgo to Trump’s inauguration, instead of on the Socialist government and economic system.
“Venezuela is in dire straits,” Maddow said. “It does not have the money to spare. Yet they inexplicably dumped a half-million bucks on Trump.”
In response, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson refuted Maddow’s claim, explaining how the country has declined to the point that, in Socialist Venezuela, “There’s no toilet paper or meat there, the currency is worthless, the murder rate is perhaps the highest in the world, the Supreme Court just tried to abolish the entire legislature for daring to oppose the dictator who’s running the place into the ground. It’s a disaster in Venezuela. But who did MSNBC blame for the turmoil there?”
“If you guessed Donald Trump,” Carlson said, “then give yourself a million worthless Venezuelan bolivars as a prize.”
