MSNBC Contributor Clint Watts insisted that Trump’s comments about the 2020 election warranted a “drone strike” during a segment focused on attacking President Trump for “inciting” violence at the Capitol on January 6.
Watts, who is also a former FBI agent and one of the many leftists who pushed the 2016 Russia collusion narrative, made the call for violence against Trump during an MSNBC panel discussion that included Nicole Wallace, Miles Taylor, and Zolan Kanno-Youngs.
“If you took what President Trump said, and instead put it in Anwar Awlaki’s mouth, we would be talking about a drone strike overseas,” Watts said, referring to terrorist Anwar Awlaki, a U.S.-born citizen and suspected al-Qaeda leader who was responsible for radicalizing several radical Islamic terrorists. Awlaki was killed by a drone strike in Yemen during Obama’s presidency.
Here is a clip of that exchange shared by MRCTV:
Leftists and left-wing media outlets aren’t afraid to broadcast their hypocrisy because they are never called out on it by their own side. They ignore violence and calls to violence from the left, while using one incident perpetrated by a relatively small group of right-leaning individuals to paint the entire conservative movement as violent and evil.
MSNBC is no stranger to blind hatred for President Trump, but discussing a drone strike on the former president is more extreme than their usual comments. Will these leftists ever face the consequences of their actions, or will they keep getting away with it?
