Retired General Michael Flynn was fired this week by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence after it was discovered Flynn did not fully explain a previous conversation he had with a Russian diplomat in which Flynn suggested relations between the U.S. and Russia would likely improve after Trump became president. The media and Democrats are calling this undeniable proof of undo influence by Russia on American foreign policy.
And yet, there was no such outrage for this moment when then-President Barack Obama leaned into then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and whispered he would have “more flexibility” to work with Russia after the 2012 Election. It was a message Medvedev promptly indicated would be delivered to Putin.
The selective outrage of the Mainstream Media and Democrats is a truly remarkable thing to behold.
