After failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton referred to Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) as a “Russian asset” being groomed to sabotage Democrat victory in 2020 last week, it caused a stir that gained Gabbard considerable media attention.
Now the fake news is trying to put the genie back in the bottle and cover for Crooked Hillary’s boneheaded remarks. They are now claiming that Clinton did not say Gabbard was groomed by Russia while appearing on the podcast “Campaign HQ with David Plouffe.”
The revision was initially spotted by independent journalist Tim Pool, who noted that the New York Times attempted to slip it by unnoticed:
NYT just stealth edited the original story about Hillary Clinton to claim that she didnt say the Russians were grooming Tulsi But that Republicans were

After Pool called them out, the infamous fake news rag ran the following “correction” on Wednesday night: “An earlier version of this article described incorrectly an element of Hillary Clinton’s recent comments about Representative Tulsi Gabbard. While Mrs. Clinton said that a Democratic presidential candidate was ‘the favorite of the Russians,’ and an aide later confirmed the reference was to Ms. Gabbard, Mrs. Clinton’s remark about the ‘grooming’ of a third-party candidate in the 2020 race was in response to a question about the Republicans’ strategy, not about Russian intervention.”
The Associated Press followed suit later, doing its part to cover for Crooked Hillary as well: “In a story Oct. 18 about Tulsi Gabbard and Hillary Clinton, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Hillary Clinton said she believes the Russians have ‘got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and grooming her to be the third-party candidate.’ She was referring to Republicans, not Russians, according to an aide.”
These corrections came in spite of the fact that the transcript from the podcast clearly shows Clinton saying that Gabbard, although not referred to by name, is being groomed to throw the election to Trump in 2020 in a Russian-backed conspiracy:
Plouffe: “So [Trump’s] gonna try and drive the people not to vote for him but just to say, ‘you know, you can’t vote for them either.’ And that seems to be, I think, to the extent that I can devine a strategy, their key strategy right now.”
Clinton: “Well, I think there’s gonna be two parts and I think it’s gonna be the same as 2016: ‘Don’t vote for the other guy. You don’t like me? Don’t vote for the other guy because the other guy is gonna do X, Y and Z or the other guy did such terrible things and I’m gonna show you in these, you know, flashing videos that appear and then disappear and they’re on the dark web, and nobody can find them, but you’re gonna see them and you’re gonna see that person do these horrible things.’
“They’re also gonna do third party again. And I’m not making any predictions but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up. Which she might not, ‘cause she’s also a Russian asset.”
Pool notes that Clinton has become a de facto editor for the fake news, as she and her underlings essentially dictate content decisions for the Times and other publications:
To say "they" will do two things then claim Russia is propping up Tulsi, then saying Jill Stein would have to bow out because shes "also a russian asset"
At the very least implies Clinton views Republicans and Russia as the same entity

It is as if the Times and other fake news rags are going out of their way to prove President Trump’s assertions about them to be correct. These biased media organizations are in the tank for Clinton and other Democrats, and will brazenly invert reality to do their bidding.
Fox News Considers Hiring Brother of Former Influential Obama Admin Official as CEO
Doubling down on their betrayal.
As Fox News’ television ratings continue to tank after betraying President Donald Trump and enforcing election fraud, they are looking at doubling down on their recipe for failure.
Fox News is reportedly considering the appointment of David Rhodes as their new CEO. David is the brother of Ben Rhodes, a former influential member of the Obama administration who regularly propagandizes against President Donald Trump and his supporters on social media.
Rhode is rumored to be a replacement option for Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott, who has presided over the network’s precipitous decline in recent months. The job of Fox News President Jay Wallace is also reportedly in danger as the network sinks far below its competitors in the ratings’ column.
Rhodes was formerly the president of CBS until 2019 where he was the youngest network news president in American history. He started working for News UK, the British division of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, last year. It is speculated that Rhodes could be hired to bring in left-leaning and younger viewers, completing the network’s complete betrayal of their loyal conservative viewership.
It is also being reported that Murdoch, now 90 years of age, has been reasserting himself in the administration of Fox News. His son, Lachlan, was named heir apparent to Rupert but is badly mismanaging the former juggernaut that had previously dominated the American TV news market for nearly two decades.
According to Meaww, an unnamed Fox News insider said: “Rupert re-taking the reins is a sign of the gross mismanagement to date.”
Big League Politics has reported on the conservative exodus from Fox News after they led the election night chicanery that ultimately robbed Trump of the presidency:
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News brass hates President Trump and his MAGA movement so much that they are killing the golden goose due to their rage. The conservative swamp runs deeper than most could have imagined before Trump’s rise.
