Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice shut down NBC’s Savannah Guthrie after Guthrie asked her whether Russia “elected Donald Trump.”

Rice was a guest on Wednesday’s “Today Show,” and Guthrie began to question the former secretary of state about all things Russia. At one point, Guthrie asked if Russia “actually elected Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton?” Rice immediately called out the theory, saying there isn’t “any evidence” to support the allegations.

“Do you think it’s possible that Russia’s election interference actually worked?” Guthrie asked. “It actually elected Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton?”

“I don’t think there’s any evidence of that,” Rice replied. “And, you know, I really don’t think 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 give the credit to the Americans who went out and voted for somebody who they thought would bring change.”

Rice added that credit should be given to the Americans who voted, noting that there is a more important question to be asked.

“Are we going to be responsive to some of the messages that were out there….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?” she asked. “That’s really the question we should be asking.”

The former secretary of state also noted that there is “no use” thinking about the past and what could have been done regarding Russia interfering with the election. She told Guthrie that people should instead work to prevent it from happening again.

    While I like Ms. Rice’s response, I hear a hint of “Dub-Ya” Bush closet globalism in there…We, The People do NOT want “change” at ALL…but the RETURN to real American values…hence, MAGA.

    The real reason behind MAGA will NEVER be reported by the MSM mainstream media…& one of the reasons the MSM mainstream media STILL whines about the “Russian Collusion Delusion” in true media confusion.

    The democrats and the lying media just won’t give up on the Russian probe. Do they really think that Russia wanted Trump as our president. Putin new Trump would be a thorn in his side and it has turned out that way.

    Well said, Ms Rice. Thank you

    That is not an even match, one side uses common sense, truth and fact the other side uses her brain dead “feelings” and is painfully allergic to facts and truth, preferring propaganda.

    Thank you Condoleezza Rice. Unfortunately S Guthrie is so prejudiced that I stopped watching the morning show entirely. I just turned it off, and have been happier ever since. She colored the show so dramatically that she became the news rather than reporting the news. It was obvious that the station supported her as she has free reign to say whatever she wants enabling her to be very disrespectful to not only the person occupying that office, but also to the office of the president as well. Additionally, nothing seemed to impact that disrespect which shows itself as bottomless, so it was necessary and easy to turn the NBC off entirely.
