Steve Hilton said in his opening monologue that Democrats are desperate to keep the focus on the Mueller report and Russia. 

He pointed to MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle asking how the Democrats might be able to keep the country focused on Mueller's findings.

Hilton said Democrats do not want Americans to notice the "booming" economy under President Trump or the left's "increasingly loony" policies.

"They just want to talk about Russia and divide America in the process," he said, pointing to Hillary Clinton's statement to Rachel Maddow that Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn't like her because the former secretary of state "stood up for America."

Hilton questioned whether Clinton was really a Russia hawk in her tenure at the State Department, which included the "reset" policy under then-President Barack Obama.



"We want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, confident, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world," she stated on Russian TV in 2010.

Hilton said it's Trump who placed "tough sanctions on Russia, expelled diplomats, armed the Ukrainians, and above all, totally changed America's energy policy in a way that Russia hates."

"So, let's get real. None of this is about substance or national security or even election meddling. It is pure politics," he said.

"That's what this is about, all of it. An arrogant and entitled ruling class that cannot believe the peasants have taken power away from them. Well, long may that revolution continue."
