As our president bombs countries while eating cake with foreign leaders, Rachel Maddow is staying focused.
Last week, images of dead Syrian children flooded our social networking feeds. They were the victims of a chemical attack supposedly carried out by their president, Bashar al-Assad. President Donald Trump wasted no time with a bomb.
Yet as the media gave him wall to wall coverage, with many saying he was showing a more sensitive side, people like Rachel Maddow refused to buy into his distraction.
Especially since he tried to enact two Muslim bans after seeing images like this one:

This past week, Maddow connected even more dots between Trump and Russia.
Gang Of Eight
While the FBI admitted they suspected Russian interference during the 2016 campaign, members of the CIA suspected a different reason. Head officials at the FBI said it was just to hack our political system, while some CIA members suspected collusion with Trump.
Especially the former head of the CIA, John O. Brennan.
Brennan was so worried, in fact, that he contacted eight head members of Congress while they were on break. Their conversations took place on secure phone lines.
All of this happened just 10 weeks before the election and we, the public, are just finding out.
Some people spam to make a quick buck, while others have made it a career. If you live in Russia and do this for a living, you’re in luck. Your government doesn’t criminalize this illegal activity.
They’d rather hire you.
Maddow informed her viewers that Peter Severa is a professional Russian spammer. After he was arrested in Barcelona, Spain, last Friday, he told his wife that it was about the 2016 election hacking.
He’s suspected of creating the virus that hacked the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) emails, the incident that tipped the scales in Trump’s favor and helped him win. He’s so good at what he does that Spamhaus, a website dedicated to exposing spammers, listed him in their top ten.
Here’s his profile.

Who can forget when Trump said this at a rally:
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
Thank you for keeping us focused, Maddow.
