    MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s latest anti-Trump conspiracy theory was so outlandish that even the dependently liberal HuffPost criticized it as "so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map." On Thursday evening, "The Rachel Maddow Show" opened with a somber 25-minute diatribe that attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the nation of Chad. Maddow essentially claimed that the inclusion of Chad, which recently pulled its troops out of Niger, in the revised travel ban resulted...

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow declared Thursday that Hillary Clinton is "not a retired politician" after conducting an hour-long interview with the failed 2016 presidential candidate. Maddow explained to colleague Lawrence O'Donnell during their hand-off that Clinton was very well-versed in current events, including on "Russia stuff." "She is definitely still in the arena," Maddow said. In surmising her takeaway from the interview, which was done as part of Clinton's book tour for What Happened, Maddow said, "So, she's -- this is not a retired politician."(continued)

    MSNBC | 6/15/2017
    Which congressman will introduce a bill to stop the violence by requiring background checks and psychological screening before people are authorized to watch MSNBC's Rachel Maddow? We don't want to take away your 1st Amendment rights, but just allow for sensible regulation. If we can save one more life by screening out the potential crazies, isn't it worth it? How much 'media violence' could be stopped by sensible regulation? Rep Scalise should be starting a super PAC called Americans for Responsible Media Solutions (ARMS) to advocate for left wing media control. We can make American communities safer while still protecting...

    If an administration is rife with scandal, and no one is around to cover it, is it still a scandal-ridden administration? Rachel Maddow, back Tuesday night from the illness that had kept her off of the air for over a week, apparently thinks not. Speaking of the Obama administration, she claimed: “It's definitely true that in modern times almost every president has hired outside legal counsel. Almost every modern president has relied on private lawyers to help him respond to whatever scandal that administration is facing. President Obama, I should mention, is an exception to that. President Obama had a...
  • USAA to Stop Running Ads on Maddow’s Show After Facing HUGE Backlash For Pulling Ads From Hannity

    After facing a huge backlash for pulling ads from Fox News’ Sean Hannity, USAA announced that they will also be pulling ads from liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s show. Earlier this week, TGP reported USAA, an insurance, bank and financial services company that caters to active duty military, veterans and their families, is getting slammed by members after announcing on Twitter Wednesday night the company was withdrawing advertising on the Sean Hannity show in response to pressure from liberal activists trying to silence Hannity by cutting off his advertising base. It was not stated by USAA if they advertised on...

Then the discussion focused on this administrations work to help the middle-class and lower class get work, leave the dependent lifestyle, and the like.
  • Maddow madness: MSNBC host blames Trump for Venezuela crisis

    According to many Democrats, President Donald Trump is at fault for the problems concerning the Middle East, North Korea, China, Russia, the economy, illegal immigration, the tax code, Obamacare and more. Now, he’s being blamed even for the rioting enveloping Venezuela in response to the economic devastation brought by its socialist regime. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who famously melted down over Trump’s election victory last November, was reporting this week about a donation from Venezuela’s state-run oil company to the Trump inauguration.

    One day after her network joined the rest of corporate media in cheering for President Trump’s missile attack on Syria, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was back to regular business: seeing Russian collaboration with Trump at work. It’s “impossible,” fellow anchor Lawrence O’Donnell told Maddow on April 7, to rule out that “Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week – so that his friend in the White House could have a big night with missiles and all of the praise he’s picked up over the past 24 hours.” Maddow concurred, suggesting that only the FBI’s ongoing probe into Trump’s alleged...

    A volley of U.S. cruise missiles had barely been launched into Syria before the Internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for an international crisis. A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war. A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking...

    MRC NewsBuster.org ^ | 4/05/17 | Jack Coleman |
    As I'm sure you recall, Maddow last month wildly overhyped her "exclusive" report -- actually obtained by another journalist -- about Trump's "tax returns," when all she had was Trump's 2005 1040 federal tax return that revealed he paid $38 million in federal taxes that year for $150 million in income. The pushback against Maddow, even on the left, was swift and brutal. Unchastened by this, Maddow last night breathlessly touted yet another "exclusive," this time concerning documents leaked to her by some like-minded left winger deep within the cubicles of the Environmental Protection Agency. The documents released to Maddow,...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” host Rachel Maddow said there was still a “possibility” President Donald Trump and his campaign were innocent of accusations of being in cahoots with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign and that this may not take down the Trump presidency. If that is indeed the case, Maddow urged her viewers not to let their guards down against public corruption, especially as there are any other numbers of storylines to pursue while the Trump-Russia saga dominates the news coverage.

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow's ratings have plummeted since her special episode Tuesday night when she said she was going to release President Donald Trump's tax returns. [Snip] It appears those feelings translated into depressed viewership numbers. The following night, Wednesday, Maddow's ratings were down 36 percent overall from Tuesday, and in the key 25- to 54-year-old demographic, her ratings were down 54 percent, Fox News reports.

    Its loss of perspective grows under hatred of Trump. For decades the media carefully cultivated an aura of “objectivity” in order to preserve its propagandistic authority. It was always a sham, but it worked as long as Republican presidents paid homage to it. Trump hasn’t, and the media hates him for it, even as its unhinged behavior confirms the truth of his stance. How dare you treat us as liberal partisans, they pout, before trotting off to the latest anti-Trump gala. Guess who is one of this year’s winners of the “Walter Cronkite Award”? Jorge Ramos, the open-borders activist who...

    Rachel Maddow’s scoop on Trump’s tax returns sparked a media frenzy and left many disappointed over the hype after her report aired on MSNBC Tuesday night. On Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher said it all amounted to “a Help Trump Burger.” “Liberals have to be so careful these days. I’m a big fan of Rachel Maddow, I want her on the air, but you can be a fan of somebody and not like everything they do,” he told guest panelists Barney Frank, a former Massachusetts congressman, and author Andrew Sullivan. “And this week she hypes — which is okay —...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 19 Mar 2017 | John Semmens
    This week, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow used an illegally obtained copy of Donald Trump’s 2005 federal tax forms to assail the President as “not as smart as he wants everyone to believe he is.” The evidence cited by Maddow was that the tax forms showed Trump paid 25% of his income for 2005 to the federal government. “Here’s this so-called business genius coughing up a quarter of his earnings to the feds,” she mocked. “This compared unfavorably to presumed financial naifs Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt), who paid 18.7% and 13.5%, respectively. It looks like the guys...

    It wouldn’t be fair to call her Tuesday night show the TV flop seen ’round the world. It was worse than that. Much worse. It was a gut-punch embarrassment to Maddow, to MSNBC, to NBC and to all the lefties who bought her afternoon tweet that “We’ve got Trump tax returns.” Were she selling stocks, she’d be busted for running a pump-and-dump scam. Her scoop, courtesy of journalist David Cay Johnston, was two pages from Trump’s 2005 federal return. It showed income of $153 million, and a tax payment of $38 million. Imagine what was going on with Maddow’s producers...

    MSNBC’s big “Trump tax return” scoop has caused friction between the cable news network and parent NBC, according to insiders. “[MSNBC] announced it on Twitter, and [NBC] found out when [the general public] did,” said a source. “[MSNBC president] Phil Griffin was trying to undermine [NBC News president] Noah Oppenheim. There was never a conversation. They overplayed their hand in a huge way.” Host Rachel Maddow teased the story on Twitter, then withheld the story till later in her program, revealing in a big ­anticlimax that Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005. “It’s their cable network, but it’s...

    She can’t be serious! Maddow’s scapegoat for Trump tax disaster is one for the ‘fake news’ record books Maddow began a nearly two-hour promotion of her “breaking” news with an announcement on social media that “We’ve got Trump tax returns,” her tweet said. “(Seriously.)” Network colleague Lawrence O’Donnell added that Maddow would be joining him on his own show immediately following hers to discuss “the night we’ve all been waiting for.” When her show aired, she spent the first 20 minutes hyping it up, telling her viewers what Trump’s tax returns could prove, prompting occasional filmmaker Michael Moore to...

    Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell (N.J.) called MSNBC host Rachel Maddow "sir" on Wednesday night, and she seemed fine with it. The two were discussing Pascrell's push for President Trump to release his tax returns when Maddow ended the interview on her show. "Congressman Bill Pascrell is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee who's pushing as hard as anybody on this issue," Maddow said. "Thanks for being with us and keep us apprised, sir." "Thank you, sir," Pascrell said. He quickly corrected himself and said "ma'am." "It's OK, I answer to both," Maddow responded while laughing. She added...
