    During Monday’s The 11th Hour on MSNBC, serial liar Brian Williams trotted of an expert panel of Trump critics and let them loose to smear the President’s actions against North Korea. “On the one hand, Brian, when you have a dangerous stand-off with a nuclear-armed adversary, of course, you would like to think that within our government we have stability, methodical planning, every step is very calculated,” declared Politico’s Michael Crowley, “And I'm not sure we can be certain that that’s happening in this administration right now.” Crowley began his comments by suggesting that Trump’s approach to foreign policy is...

We thought we were creating a savvier, more skeptical audience. Instead we opened the door for President Trump who found an audience that could be easily misled."Williams...
