Reiner Runs With MSNBC Fake News to Condemn Trump

August 29, 2019

After an MSNBC report Tuesday by Lawrence O’Donnell that Russian billionaires with ties to Putin co-signed bank loans for President Trump, filmmaker and anti-Trump activist Rob Reiner leaped at the opportunity to decry a “mountain of criminality” in the White House.

On Wednesday morning Reiner tweeted, “So now we have Russians co-signing Trump’s loans. The mountain of Criminality is overwhelming. Impeachment is just the start. Vote him out. Then indict him. America deserves a President who isn’t a Liar, a Racist, and a Traitor.”

Predictably — at least for anyone not afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome — the claim turned out to be fake news which the humiliated O’Donnell was forced to apologize for and retract.

“Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air,” said O’Donnell.
