Here’s Where Donald Trump Gets His Conspiracy Theories

Published on

President Donald Trump often spreads bizarre and weird conspiracy theories that seem to have no grounding in facts or evidence. And now MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has revealed where he gets those theories, and surprisingly it’s not Fox News.

Maddow recently did a segment on her show discussing the source of Trump’s conspiracy theories. These include a recent warning by Trump that Poland would invade Belarus and/​or Montenegro to start a World War, as well as his recent defense of the Soviet Union invading Afghanistan in 1979 to fight terrorism. Apparently these two theories, as well as some other foreign policy statements made by the president, are all derived from misinformation campaigns being conducted by the Russian government. 

Here’s Maddow’s segment on Trump’s Russian-born conspiracy theories:

Geez, I actually wish he was being brainwashed by Fox News conspiracy theories instead.
