[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC White House correspondent Geoff Bennett guest hosted MSNBC Live on Monday where he editorialized with Philip Rucker of the Washington Post about President Trump's campaign strategy that allegedly involves instilling fear and division in the hopes igniting conflict through out the country.

After playing a clip of Kellyanne Conway on Fox talking about the violence happening throughout the country, the need for law and order, and how Trump is the best candidate on that issue, Bennett tossed the conversation to Rucker with a declaration rather than a question, "So, the president can't campaign on the economy, he can’t campaign on his handling of the coronavirus. So, he's apparently taking a page out of his old playbook which is stoking fear and division."
