The far left, far gone Rachel Maddow is back at it. On Friday, she claimed that the Trump decision to order strikes on Syria well make people think he was looking to "distract" from a "catastrophic domestic scandal" that is going on in his home. That's right, Maddow implied that the strikes on Damascus was done to divert people from their crises at home.
Per Real Clear Politics:
"It will affect those other countries' view of this strike. It will affect their reaction to it," she said.
"It will therefore affect the utility of this military strike if the president of the United States is believed to have issued the order to launch this strike tonight, even in part because people think he wanted to distract from a catastrophic domestic scandal that is blowing up at home at the same time," the MSNBC host declared.
"The perception that the president may have ordered these strikes in part because of scandal will affect the impact and the effectiveness of these military strikes. Unavoidably. Even if the tail is not wagging the dog," Maddow added.

This is complete insanity. She is implying Trump would put devastating strikes on a country only as a diversion from problems he is having with his home life. She really thought it was a good idea to say this? The producers allowed her to move forward with this? Wow!
Hey Rachel Maddow - Wipe the smirk off of your face. President Trump doesn't bring shame to America and weaken it on the world stage. His decision to bomb Syria shows our strength and our force for good

>> @Maddow went there right after Trump's address: "The perception that the president may have ordered these strikes in part because of scandal will affect the impact and the effectiveness of these military strikes. Unavoidably. Even if the tail is NOT wagging the dog."
