MSNBC Host Asks Condoleezza Rice If Russia Helped Elect Trump; Rice Leaves Her Speechless

An MSNBC anchor, Savannah Guthrie, asked Condelezza Rice is she though Russia had helped Trump get elected and was left speechless by her reply.

Guthrie asked Rice if “it’s possible that the Russia’s election interference actually worked? It actually elected Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton?”

““I don’t think there is any evidence of that, and you know I really don’t think that that’s a good conversation to have. I think that really does devalue the people in Wisconsin and Michigan and others who decided to vote for President Trump; whether you like this president or not, whether you believe that he should have been president or not, let’s — let’s give the credit to the Americans who went out and voted for somebody who they thought would bring change,” Rice replied.

Partial transcript:

ZELIKOW: “… for interference in the election has now come and gone. We’ve done what we’ve done and it’s —“

GUTHRIE: “Is that a no?”

ZELIKOW: “— it’s — it’s basically no use crying over stuff maybe we should have done two years ago. The focus now needs to be on how we protect the election next time.”

RICE: “Because I will a completely second that, but the first time that they interfered in our election it was shame on them. If they do it again it’s shame on us. We know a lot about what they’ve done, if we aren’t taking steps to prevent that then that’s a problem that we are creating.”

GUTHRIE: “When you look at the 2016 election, and you look at, relatively speaking it was decided by a handful of votes in a few states. Do you think it’s possible that the Russia’s election interference actually worked? It actually elected Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton?”

RICE: “I don’t think there is any evidence of that, and you know I really don’t think that that’s a good conversation to have.

I think that really does devalue the people in Wisconsin and Michigan and others who decided to vote for President Trump; whether you like this president or not, whether you believe that he should have been president or not, let’s — let’s give the credit to the Americans who went out and voted for somebody who they thought would bring change.

And the question is are we going to be responsive to some of the messages that were out there and do you hear me now? People who felt that they were disadvantaged by globalization, the unemployed coal miner in West Virginia, the opioid addicted person in Pennsylvania, are we going to be responsive to those people? That’s really the question we should be asking.”

GUTHRIE: “Well the book, of course, is called, ‘To Build a Better World.’ It’s got a lot of thought-provoking issues in it. Thank you so much for being here this morning, especially on this morning.”

RICE: “Thank you.”

ZELIKOW: “Thank you.”

GUTHRIE: “We really appreciate it.”
