When confronted with facts about their own crimes, Republicans like to call it fake news, but when the truth is already widespread, they deflect and project. They change the subject and lie to make it seem like their opponents are guilty of similar or worse crimes. When Breitfart contributor, and Faux Noise conspiracy theorist, Herb London, used this tactic, Joy-Ann Reid tore him a new one. See the Republican Lie!
Conservative activist Herb London appeared on AM Joy and attempted to defend Donald Trump by deflecting towards conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton. Joy-Ann Reid continued her journalistic duties as she forcefully fact checked him in real time. It was an epic performance.
The AM Joy Host was not pulling any punches as she immediately corrected the record from the lies spewed by her Conservative guest. London started off by giving a long soliloquy in an attempt to minimize the severity of the Trump Scandal. He included some easily debunked statements about the Trump administration.
"I don’t believe for a moment there’s a criminal case here," London said. "I do believe that there’s an awful lot of razzle-dazzle as you pointed out. And I’m not happy about the fact that the Russians are involved in any way with what happens in an American election. But I do think that the high dudgeon that you’ve now expressed to make a major case is a distraction from the policy agenda of the Trump administration. And I’m not necessarily a defender of the Trump team. My feeling is that what you’ve overlooked is the fact that we’ve made significant strides since Donald Trump has been president, and that has been overlooked largely because this is a distraction notwithstanding your claims to the contrary. It is a distraction from the kind of policy agenda that I think we should be following."
London went into lying conspiracy land…

Kudos to Joy-Ann. Rarely do we see a fascist so egregiously exposed.
