    MSNBC on Wednesday attempted to do a « reality check » on South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s remarks at the Republican National Convention about the ongoing violence in certain cities.

    Noem kicked off the evening of speakers and took aim at « Democrat-run cities » that have been hit with violence following the death of George Floyd.

    « From Seatle and Portland to Washington and New York, Democrat-run cities across this country are being overun by violent mobs, » Noem said. « The violence is rampant. There’s looting, chaos, destruction, and murder. People who can afford to flee have fled but the people that can’t, good hard-working Americans, are left to fend for themselves. »

    However, those remarks didn’t sit well with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who cut into the network’s RNC coverage to call Noem’s claims « very wrong. »

    And joining her by phone to react to the South Dakota governor’s remarks was Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

    « Her caricature of the great cities across America is not only wrong, it’s purposefully wrong, » Durkan said, encouraging Noem to visit her city. « Seattle is a city that I raised my two children in and I would not have raised them anywhere else. »

    Durkan went on to claim that violent crime in her city is ‘down 5% this year » and that people « are not leaving Seattle, » later taking a swipe at President Trump.

    « He tried to make it sound like there were mobs rampant throughout Seattle. It’s not the case, » Durkan assured Maddow, who agreed that Noam’s remarks were « really, really wrong. »

    The segment was panned by right-leaning commentators on social media, many pointing out to the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), the weeks-long autonomous zone that was set up by protesters that later was the setting for violence.

    « This is complete bulls—, » Townhall.com senior writer Julio Rosas reacted. « You can scroll through my timeline and see the results of Democratic mayors and governors abandoning their cities when the going gets tough with the mobs. »

    « Summer of love! » The Federalist correspondent David Marcus exclaimed, quoting Durkan’s remarks during her city’s unrest earlier this summer.

    « This happened in Durkan’s Seattle earlier this week –> ‘Rioters tried to burn Seattle police alive, sealed door during fire at East Precinct,' » RealClearInvestigations senior writer Mark Hemingway shared a recent headline from Durkan’s city.
