MSNBC star Rachel Maddow is being called out by her fellow liberals for an anti-Trump conspiracy theory so outlandish that even the HuffPost criticized it as “so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map.”
On Thursday evening, Maddow opened her show with a 25-minute diatribe in which she attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the country of Chad.
Chad recently pulled its troops out of Niger, and Maddow seems convinced that Trump having included that country in his revised travel ban is the reason extremists attacks led to the death of 4 Americans.
Typically as anti-Trump as they come, the HuffPost published a story headlined, “What the hell was this Rachel Maddow segment?”
The news outlet then debunked Maddow’s ridiculous theory with quotes from Colby College Department of Government assistant professor Laura Seay, who said that “any expert” would have said Maddow’s conspiracy theory was “crazy” and the pullout of Chadian troops isn’t necessarily related to the Trump’s travel ban.
“Everybody that I know is appalled by this,” Seay told the HuffPost. “I would like to think that Maddow’s researchers are more responsible.”
