Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 20, 2018

It's clear from the complaint that the Russian trolls latched onto the special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller, which has dominated US politics for the past year. The instructions said: "Special prosecutor Mueller is a puppet of the establishment. List scandals that took place when Mueller headed the FBI. Direct attention to the listed examples." Other Kremlin-backed accounts on Twitter shared messages that encouraged Democrats and liberals to protest in the streets if Trump ever fired Mueller. These opposing messages highlight how the Russian trolls tried to inflame people on opposite sides of a major political issue.

You're being manipulated all right.; by CNN propaganda.

Anyone who doesn't lap up DNC milk must be a Russian bot or Nazi.

CNN propaganda? Link?
From the guy who parrots every Trump lie.

I expected better. Maybe a deflection to China or a specific example of an MLM lie. So lame.

Yuppers!

And it is obvious you have been taken in by the worst of them.

It is still amazing to me just how many Americans LIKE being told how to think. It's still amazing to me how many Americans really do want to make America Hate again.

SAD!
