Tyler Durden. Zero Hedge, Jan 8 2017
Judging by the outpouring of liberal denigration among the twitterati, Rick Santelli’s appearance on NBC Meet The Press this morning struck one too many nerves of reality. Standing alone against the wall of establishment media, Santelli began:
What’s going on here is really so politically driven … Where was all this uproar in June, when the DNC emails were hacked? This wasn’t made an issue, because it would have put the emails in Hillary’s server right in the thick of it! That’s why this went under the radar. This is all tied together …
The shocked looks on the faces on Andrea Mitchell, Chuck Todd and David Brooks was only bettered by their repeated efforts to refocus the narrative on Putin “as the devil and journalist-murderer” and Trump “as a puppet,” but Santelli was not done with them.

From Andrea Mitchell:
