Political consultant Peter Daou vehemently supported former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during her campaign and just criticized anyone who “spread the idea that Hillary Clinton is a horrible monster,” including Republicans and Bernie Sanders supporters alike.
In a tweet, Daou called them “de facto Russian propagandist.”
SIMPLY PUT: If you spread the idea that Hillary Clinton is a horrible monster, you were a de facto Russian propagandist. Congratulations.

Daou has been vocal about his unwavering support for Clinton and is even defending her sluggish response to the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations and the ludicrous claim was accompanied by several other pro-Clinton tweets.
People were not happy with the comment:
she is not a horrible monster, just an ineffective centrist candidate running in the midst of a populist tidal wave.

If you're still harping on how evil everyone is for not voting HRC you're a de facto propagandist for corporatism. Congratulations.

Nope. #Hillary herself revealed her monstrousness. The rest of us simply discussed it – in good old American English.

By calling people who disagree with you a propagandist makes you a propagandist

Taking a step back, doesn't that just sound crazy? Daou is off the rails.

Russia had nothing to do with it. Hillary even had the cards stacked in her favor and she still lost. We never wanted her and never will.
