Melvin Asks Dem. Trump Supporter 'Are You a Paid Campaign Surrogate?'


[See NewsBusters for more.] For the past several years, MSNBC has hailed any anti-Trump Republican as the voice of reason and as a champion of decency. However, fireworks ensued on MSNBC Live on Wednesday when host Craig Melvin interviewed pro-Trump Democrat State Rep. from Georgia Vernon Jones with Melvin wondering if Jones was being paid for his efforts.

The interview got off to a contentious start with Melvin clearly perplexed how anyone who considers himself a Democrat could support Trump. He and Jones battled over Trump's record on Russia and the pre-pandemic economy. Throughout Melvin repeated claims indistinguishable from those of the DNC press office.
