European Parliament Member Nigel Farage slammed the political “establishment” on “Fox & Friends” Monday, for continuing to claim President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
Farage said it’s absurd to believe Russia was able to tip the scales for both the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the Brexit vote in Europe and thinks those who support the theory lack hard evidence. (RELATED: Nigel Farage Predicts Theresa May Will Sabotage Brexit If Left In Power)
“Maybe we can start to have a more sensible relationship because at the moment what we’ve got is we’ve got the establishment blaming Brexit and the Trump election on Russia collusion, without an ounce of evidence,” Farage said. “And it’s up to Trump to show the world that we don’t need to make things worse with Russia.”
Farage claimed the political establishment in Europe and America are confused by the recent voting patterns of ordinary citizens and have become desperate enough to cling to conspiracy theories to support their agenda.
“This is because nobody thought Brexit would happen. Nobody thought Trump would happen,” Farage declared.
“The establishment, who still don’t understand why middle England and middle America voted in a way that they can’t comprehend — They’re desperately looking for an excuse,” he concluded. “They’re trying to put together their own conspiracy theory.”
