WND's Farah Doesn't Understand Why Trump-Russia Is A Story. No, Really.
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah writes in his April 2 WorldNetDaily column:

I don’t understand it.

I don’t comprehend it.

I don’t get why so many people take this Russian influence business seriously.

I don’t see any evidence for it.

I certainly don’t see any evidence it was effective at tipping the scales on the election.

So why are the media, Democrats and even some Republicans and members of the Trump administration taking it seriously?

That's right: the man who spent eight years promoting conspiracy theories about Barack Obama's birth certificate -- and the man whose website just claimed that CoverGirl hiring a Muslim spokesmodel makes it a "proxy for jihad" -- somehow doesn't see any significance whatsoever in the Trump team's Russian connections.

We suspect he'd see this as a story if Trump was a Democrat, though. And his WND wouldn't be spinning so hard to pretend there is nothing to see here regarding those Trump-Russia links.

Farah also repeats the falsehood that "Barack Obama used U.S. taxpayer money openly to influence the election of its best ally in the Middle East, Israel." As we pointed out the last time Farah told this lie -- which refers to an Israeli group that received State Department funding for a separate project that later used the project's infrastructure to run a campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- no laws were violated, the organization did not violate any conditions of its deal with State, and no State Department money went toward funding the anti-Netanyahu campaign.

(Note that Farah doesn't refer to Obama as "President Obama." Farah apparently still refuses to acknowledge that Obama was ever president.)
