Max Boot: ‘Frightening’ That Trump’s Believing His DNC-Ukraine Conspiracy Theory

‘He’s promoting this crazy conspiracy theory’


BOOT: “Right. And of course his concern over the 2016 election was not actually about, quote, unquote, corruption. Trump has shown zero interest in any corruption — so-called corruption that does not involve his enemies. When he’s talking about 2016, what he’s really talking about is this crazy conspiracy theory about how it wasn’t really the Russians who hacked the DNC. It was somehow the Ukrainians. It was part of this deep state plot to frame Trump. So he’s promoting this crazy conspiracy theory. He really won’t let go of it. The really frightening thing here, don, is I think he might actually believe this. It may not just be for show. I think he actually believes this craziness.”
