Admittedly, watching liberals who cried over the war in the Middle East just a decade ago, cry now that President Donald J. Trump has taken steps to end the same war has been amusing.
But Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah has gone full conspiracy theorist, claiming that Trump orchestrated the troop withdrawal from Syria with Russian president Vladimir Putin more than two years ago, before Trump was elected president.
“Was this part of your deal with Putin to help you win the 2016 election?” Obeidallah Tweeted in response to Trump’s announcement that he would be withdrawing troops from Syria.
After two years of investigation, there is still zero evidence that the Kremlin had anything to do with Trump’s election. But that is the narrative that the conspiracy loons in the mainstream press have chosen, and they are sticking with it.
“Message heard by your comrades in Moscow. Does this mean by pulling out troops as Putin wants you can finally build Trump Tower Moscow?” Obeidallah sad in another Tweet.
Obeidallah and Daily Beast are playing the “willful ignorance” card here, ignoring the fact that two things can be true at once: Removing troops from Syria can be good for the war-weary American people, and also good geopolitically for Russia. Benefit on behalf of both parties does not suggest an agreement – or a conspiracy.
But the Russian hoaxers are happy to take this decision at face value, attempting to turn it into proof of their insane “collusion” theory. Perhaps we are old fashioned at Big League Politics, but we are waiting for tangible evidence of some sort of crime before we indict Trump the alleged crime. Daily Beast, on the other hand, apparently does not have such stringent guidelines.
Daily Beast did not return a comment request.

CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
