MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow joined the ladies on “The View” today. The panel had been discussing Adam Schiff’s parody reading of President Trump’s telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Co-host Abby Huntsman said she felt it was extremely partisan and that it had made her feel uncomfortable.
She said, “My frustration is that there has been a crying wolf for so long. This is it, this is the smoking gun. He’s out for two years now from Democrats, from some members of the media, that now you have people in this country that are, like, we don’t believe anything anymore. They’re shutting it off. They are not taking it as seriously as they should, and I ask you, (turning to Maddow) do you think you’re part of that problem? Do you think that you have?”
“Rachel?” Joy Behar interjected. The ladies shared a laugh over the question.
Then Maddow told the group:
I think it’s a very good point. It’s a consequence of having a really scandal-ridden presidency with all sorts of stuff happening all the time, that in any other presidency, would have already led to impeachment.
Just before you guys got on the air today, the President went out on the South Lawn and he was asked, “What did you want the Ukrainians to do?”
He said, “I want them to investigate Biden. And I want the Chinese to do it too.”
The ladies found that very amusing.
She added, “We can put all that aside. He’s just admitted to it on the South Lawn. So, you don’t need an inquiry.”
Why is that funny? I find it reasonable.
This woman has no clue why her ratings have cratered, especially since the release of the Mueller report put to the lie over two years of her Russian collusion hysteria. Her lack of self-awareness is breathtaking.
It will be delightful to tune into Maddow’s show after President Trump wins reelection next year.
