Fmr Amb: Obama Would Be More Popular ‘if MSNBC Worked For Him’

Former US Ambassador to Russia and NBC News Contributor Michael McFaul argued that President Obama would have a higher approval rating “if MSNBC worked for him” on Friday’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC.

McFaul disputed that Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s approval rating was truly at 80%, adding “it’s at 80% when he controls all means of different kinds of voices, right? So, I’ll bet you Barack Obama could be closer to 80% if MSNBC worked for him and the US Congress all worked for him.”
