Maddow Mocks WH Calling Flynn ‘Obama Admin Official’: Like Calling Nixon an Ex-Congressman

Rachel Maddow tonight ridiculed the spin from a lawyer for President Trump mentioning Michael Flynn, who was selected by Trump to be his National Security Advisor, as a “former Obama administration official.”

Flynn served as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency for two years under Obama, and Maddow was rather amused by how Ty Cobb skipped over the position as Trump’s NSA and went back to that instead:

“That was funny when Ty Cobb said that today about Mike Flynn, because that would be like announcing Nixon’s resignation as ‘Former California congressman steps down from position in Washington.’ It’s ridiculous… it’s funny to see the White House desperation there.”
