"The mainstream media is fairly skilled at doing it so here's what here here's how the washington post handles handles it okay so this is an article on the washington post and it's it was a written earlier today by amber phillips the title is yup the quote will stop trump text is bad but trump just overplayed his hand on the fbi okay so it's like right away it's like yeah no granted that's bad it's bad you know like it's not good that you have someone at the fbi saying we the fbi will stop the guy who was ultimately elected president of the united states it's bad but trump overplayed his hand okay this is how you distract from the obvious nature of what was just exposed all right here's the article president trump is right it looks terrible that fbi agent involved in both the hillary clinton emails and the trump russia investigation privately texted this to someone will stop trump from becoming president being partisan is not the fbi's job so right away and this is basically what the i g report was all about like if you actually read into it what they keep saying over and over again is that the problem with james komi is that he cast a shadow over the fbi so again it looks terrible that someone in the fbi would tweet this well the problem isn't that it looks terrible the problem is that it's terrible it looks terrible because it's terrible so.

"To washington post political reporter amber phillips is good enough to join us on the komo news anchor thanks so much no this was a district president one by twenty points over hillary clinton so is close going to be good enough for democrats if they don't get the win tonight yeah i think it will be other pundits agree with me and certainly democrats and you talking about the records say that's what makes us district so interesting and this one race to watch his democrat connor lamb doesn't have to win for democrats to prove point and that's because if he gets anywhere within i'd say two to three points of the republicans tonight he will have gone it off the support of trump voters themselves that's just the numbers say that of the way the district voted in the presidential election is strongly for trump's that means there will be some republicans defecting to the democrat if the democrat gets even close but this is a democrat who's not your typical democrat as well he's you know supported the president trump's care plan least aspects of it like this is not the kind of racist democrats could run across the country and and hope to have these candidates win and perhaps more liberal places or or districts that voted for hillary clinton that republicans still hold so here's one of the other fascinating elements to this amber is this district is going to be redrawn barring core challenges and up for grabs again in november so could too much be read into this race and what will it mean for sokoto tonight if he wins and and is then back at it again in november in the same for connor lamb yeah that thing.
