Super sleuth Joy Reid traces Venezuela’s collapse all the way back to Donald Trump
Remember that scene from Anne Rice’s “Queen of the Damned” where the tears of Hillary’s supporters slowly seeped into the ground beneath the Javits Center and rousedChristiane Amanpour from her long slumber? Angered by this disturbance, she called to her minions to awaken and save both journalism and democracy from mortal peril.
Not that we needed anyone to confess that the press had been fast asleep for eight long years, but Google has really come a long way in that time, and there’s no reason for someone like Joy Reid to tweet something like this without doing a quick history check first.
Meanwhile Trump's weakness & unsuitability for the presidency have real life consequences. Venezuela, Pakistan, Jerusalem all melting down.

It really was remarkable to see a strong, stable country like Venezuela descend into rioting in the streets over food shortages in just six months. Thanks, Trump.
This is like the hyperbolic "Thanks Obama" joke. Except they're serious. https://t.co/pmo3T7hDNF

There you have it, Trump is responsible for the problems in Venezuela. https://t.co/GwAmLiJur9

It's hard to overstate how intellectually dishonest and aggressively ignorant this is. https://t.co/unAPyu5DNj

Gary Johnson officially has a better foreign policy background than you. I wonder what else you know nothing about.

Yes, because 6 months ago is when Venezuela became a socialist shithole, and also when the middle east first experienced conflict. https://t.co/MhuP4ujY7B

Venezuela is a socialist hell hole that was running out of food while Obama was president, but sure it's Trump's fault https://t.co/VAKVCxkBfq

Wait, what? Venezuela is in meltdown? I was assured it was a socialist paradise. How on earth is this Trump's fault? https://t.co/zFIqYWS20h

Maybe you should bring on Danny Glover to explain Venezuela? https://t.co/QMhV4tYgU1

Surely these were melting down prior to January 20. Anybody know who was in charge prior to that? Bueller? https://t.co/JCYiAc6CLZ
