And the question is why are they defending him?

You know things are turning to *merde*, when Soros is defending you.

Media Matters for America, the George Soros-funded progressive activist
organization, is praising Trump’s National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster,
for terminating some members of President Donald Trump’s National Security
Council, criticizing conservative media for questioning his loyalty to the
president, and his decision to allow former NSA Susan Rice continued access
to classified information.

“Media in support of President Donald Trump are calling for the ouster of
Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, accusing him of being a
‘globalist’ ‘traitor’ who is ‘aligned with the enemies of Trump and
America,’ ” Media Matters wrote on its website
on Friday.

Media Matters, founded by Hillary Clinton ally David Brock, titled its
article “Fake news purveyors, Twitter trolls, and Sean Hannity go all in
against national security adviser McMaster.”

“Over the past month, McMaster has worked to oust some members of the
National Security Council (NSC) who were previously aligned with former
national security adviser Michael Flynn and Trump’s chief strategist (and
former Breitbart News head) Steve Bannon,” Media Matters wrote.

Media Matters also targeted “pro-Trump outlet” Circa News, for reporting that
McMaster had sent a letter to former national security adviser Rice,
“giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and
waiving her ‘need-to-know’ requirement on anything she viewed or received
during her tenure.”

Media Matters argued on behalf of Rice, who it said faced a “dubious
accusation” of unmasking Trump officials caught up in surveillance and that
“there is no proof Rice did anything wrong.”

Media Matters also attacked Hannity, calling him a “Trump propagandist,”
for questioning McMaster’s decision on Rice.

The article compiles all “conservative” media that have questioned
McMaster’s loyalty to the president, including Breitbart News, which reported
in January
on the efforts by Media Matters to “stop” Breitbart News.

“The scheme was documented in a Media Matters briefing book obtained
by the Washington Free Beacon at a retreat for current and prospective
donors held in Florida,” the Breitbart News article said.

“The 14-page pamphlet listed a core budget goal for 2017 of $13.4 million,
which the booklet says would pay for a staff of 81, ostensibly to wage war
on independent news media outlets like Breitbart,” the Breitbart News
article said. “The briefing book focused heavily on Breitbart News, which
was repeatedly singled out as a target.”

“In one section of the pamphlet, in which Media Matters bills itself as
‘the top watchdog against fake news and propaganda,’ the progressive media
activist group falsely claims that Breitbart News ‘provides a nexus point
for the so-called alt-right (the newest branding for American white
nationalism, anti-Semitism, and misogyny) to exploit vulnerabilities
throughout the media landscape.’ ” nt

According to Activists Facts website, Soros and other left-wing groups fund
Media Matters for America to the tune of millions:

MMfA’s funders range from labor unions to progressive foundations to
liberal billionaires. From fiscal year 2009 to 2012, the National Education
Association (NEA) has contributed $400,000 ($100,000 per year) to Media
Matters. MMfA has received an additional $185,000 from other labor
organizations since 2005, making labor unions some of the largest known
contributors to Media Matters. MMfA has directly quoted these labor groups
and has defended them against “attacks” from reporters and media
personalities. MMfA did not disclose these donations in its reporting on
labor unions.

MMfA has received nearly $30 million from foundations since it started. The
Tides Foundation is the largest contributors to MMfA, giving nearly $4.4
million. There are undoubtedly close ties between the organizations besides
financial support. MMfA frequently reports on the critics of Tides, but
fails to mention that the foundation is MMfA’s largest donor. The line
between Tides and MMfA is so blurry that even donors appear to be confused.
In 2003, prior to the official launch of MMfA, the Stephen M. Silberstein
Foundation even designated a $100,000 contribution to “Tides Foundation –
Media Matters for America.”

Billionaire George Soros donated $1 million to Media Matters in October

Media Matters also claimed in its pro-McMaster report that the hashtag
#FireMcMaster was being promoted on Twitter by various conservative groups.
