As Russiagate sputters, MSNBC hosts show undying faith in Robert Mueller

As Russiagate sputters, MSNBC hosts show undying faith in Robert Mueller

Top MSNBC hosts and married couple Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough have creeped out the internet with a bizarre Twitter post, apparently paying homage to special counsel Robert Mueller by displaying his portrait at their home.

As the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory wheezes out a final breath, media pundits who pushed the story are looking for ways to salvage their credibility, but two of MSNBC’s top hosts refuse to let it die.

You’ve got to hand it to them, really; the network’s single-minded effort to salvage the Russia narrative has thus far been impressive. Mueller’s investigation, hyped to death for months by breathless pundits, could not establish any illicit ties between US President Donald Trump and Moscow. That left much of the media in a state of panic, as they scrambled to explain how they could get the story so wrong.

Reacting to Brzezinski’s post, much of Twitter erupted in mockery.
