The anti-Trump Resistance is still clinging to the 2016 election narrative so tightly that their wishes for allegations to turn into facts have led to questions like this one from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC:
Maddow: Is there anything in the dossier that has been disproven?
Clapper: No. pic.twitter.com/2xJpPh8uY1

Do you know how stupid this reasoning is? https://t.co/di9RNcXLq6

The Resistance doesn’t appear to get that, but many others do.
It's always awesome when a self confessed Liar(under oath) on a left wing puppet media outlet to prop up a corrupt document by trying to prove myths with wordplay. pic.twitter.com/m6qz0zEKY3

Shouldn't the standard be it is actually proven?
Prove the negative or we'll just run with it
Good enough for the Left, I guess https://t.co/7grZIbOxi8

It’s the kind of logic fail you might expect to see on MSNBC, except this one’s supersized.
This is called desperation. pic.twitter.com/r1O9fXER2D

No one to date has "disproven" UFOs, Bigfoot, or that Elvis is still alive.

Many things have been disproven so even that is a lie.

I wonder how long it took dimwit maddow to come up with that ridiculous question?

Is proving a negative an argumentative fallacy?

Totally. But it’s MSNBC we’re talking about.
