MSNBC Analyst Warns Trump Rhetoric Could Encourage ‘Machine Gun’ Fire

Talk about conspiracy theories.

On Thursday’s Deadline: White House on MSNBC, guest analyst and TIME magazine columnist Elise Jordan railed against conspiracy theorist Trump supporters and devised a wild theory of her own.

While speaking on the missing FBI text messages between two anti-Trump agents (which have since been found), Jordan said the rhetoric around the mystery amounts to similar chatter surrounding the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory. She warned that engaging in such banter runs the risk of what happened at that D.C. pizza parlor. Jordan said those backing Trump’s rhetoric “don’t realize the consequences… where this could end.”

“You know, it seemed like fun and games for plenty of the conspiracy theorists who were saying that Hillary Clinton had a pedophilia ring in a D.C. pizza parlor until a guy showed up there with a machine gun,”  Jordan said, incorrectly identifying the weapon used.

“And, the President’s rhetoric, the rhetoric that is endorsed by his followers — by his prominent followers on television — there are going to be consequences,” she added. “And I think that it’s something that they should think about as they actively endorse it.”

So, Trump is inspiring Pizzagate copy-cats who are going to grab their “machine guns” and go on shooting sprees? Who’s the conspiracy loon now?

Of course, this is the same person who last year said Republicans close to President Trump are cozying up with and “hugging a suicide bomber — He blows you up in the process with him.”

Jordan has very violent fantasies, no?
