Maddow gets it entirely wrong on Venezuela

The country of Venezuela has been having enormous protests for days, calling it the Mother of All Protests.  According to the Atlantic (and they know the left):

On Wednesday, hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered in Caracas and other Venezuelan cities to step up their continuing demonstrations against the government of President Nicolas Maduro.  The march, called the “mother of all marches”  by organizers, was met by riot police who fired tear gas and rubber bullets, while some demonstrators threw stones and firebombs. At least two students and a member of the National Guard were killed in the clashes.

Note the lack of Donald Trump in that piece.  Because the march has NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUMP!

However, last night on her show, Rachel Maddow was discussing a new story that the head of a state-run Venezuelan oil company donated 50,000 to the Trump Inauguration.  She ran video of the ongoing protests and text insinuating the protest is about Trump

Now if you’re watching Maddow you probably don’t know a lot about the world, and would be forced to assume the people of Venezuela are choking the streets and clashing with police all because of TRUMP!

Take a look at the video and see for yourself.
