Wait, what? Just when you thought NBC’s Andrea Mitchell couldn’t possibly get more biased, or more inane or more lacking in journalistic integrity, she proves you wrong! Former Secretary of State Colin Powell was on “Meet the Press” this morning and he brought up birthers, as if they are relevant and mainstream.
Colin Powell — why does the GOP allow the birther movement? #mtp

Sigh. Sane Twitter users point out the obvious.
Yeah because birthers are so relevant RT @mitchellreports Colin Powell #MTP has tough words for GOP for birther movement other policies

@JonahNRO I never think about birtherism unless someone like @mitchellreports brings it up.

Fire hazard! Strawman alert! MT @jonahnro RT @mitchellreports Colin Powell #MTP has tough words for GOP for birther movement other policies

But, it’s worse than that. Mitchell doubled-down on the idiocy and implied that the “birther movement” was a GOP policy (how would that even be defined as a policy? Words are hard) when she said that he blasted it and “other GOP policies.”
Eye roll, indeed. And outrageous: Lapdogs will stop at nothing, even flat-out fallacious implications, in order to push their false narratives.
