Donald Trump thanked "Great Republican" John Kennedy for regurgitating a Russian conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 Presidential election during an interview on Meet the Press. The long debunked theory was repeatedly shot down by US intelligence agencies and the DOJ, but Trump and his cronies continue to spread it to sow confusion among the US electorate. Host Chuck shot down Kennedy's assertion by pointing out he's spreading a known conspiracy theory, but Kennedy insisted he "thought" it was relevant.
