Connecticut Democrat Senator Chris Murphy responded to the news of President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis with the most predictable response possible for a member of his party- bringing up Russia conspiracy theories.
Speaking on CNN Friday, Murphy claimed that Vladimir Putin would act as a “Trump surrogate” for the period in which the President is unable to campaign while recuperating.
“You have to be much more serious about the Russian threat given today’s news,” Murphy told CNN’s Jim Sciutto. “If President Trump can’t be out there on the campaign trail for the next two weeks, then he is going to rely on his surrogates and, unfortunately, one of his surrogates is Vladimir Putin.”
That doesn’t even make any sense. You wouldn’t think that the President of the Russian Federation would be actively campaigning for an American President responsible for placing more sanctions on his country than ever before and terminating arms agreements between the US and Russia, but this doesn’t matter to hysterical neoliberal Democrats still obsessed with baseless Russia conspiracy theories more than a year after Robert Mueller’s witch hunt ended as a colossal nothingburger.

“So you are likely going to see this campaign ramped up by Russia over the next few weeks to try to substitute for the president’s absence on the campaign trail,” Murphy claimed. “And my worry is that the intel agencies are not being clear with the American people about the size of the Russian operation and their clear desire to try to elect President Trump to a second term.”
Unhinged, delusional conspiracy theorist. At least Murphy will have a (fictional and weak) excuse in the event Trump defeats Biden in November, a possibility most Democrats are refusing to entertain.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
