[See NewsBusters for more.] According to Andrea Mitchell Reports guest host Kasie Hunt, President Biden's agenda is so popular that Republicans are trying to take credit for it, even though they vote against it. There was just one problem with the Thursday segment: in order to provide evidence for their claim, MSNBC had to deceptively edit Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's Tuesday remarks in Kentucky.

Hunt claimed, "This kind of goes back to what are the Republican incentives to go along with this bipartisan deal and Mitch McConnell hasn’t really said one way or the other whether he thinks it's better to let it go through because we've also seen him in particular take and in this case it was the American Rescue Plan which Democrats did on their own, he went home to Kentucky and he took credit for it anyway, politically speaking."
