Rachel Maddow has become a laughing stock

She made Trump look so good that many are speculating that Trump deliberately leaked the most flattering excerpt of a tax return he had and she took the bait. What a fail. In that sorry episode you see everyhing that's wrong with the faux lefts' Trump opposition. It's all hot air. They are Trump's best friends. If they keep this up he'll win 2020 no problem.

Trump is a genius, he knows how to manipulate the reporter frauds. CNN is a good representation of the pussification of USA.

Real talk, f*** Rachel Maddow. THAT woman refuses to do real research AND real journalism on the horror that Palestine has gone through no thanks to the right-wing Jews' Zionism [which is basically their own version of white supremacy].

With that said, I send a quick shout-out to Abby Martin. When it comes to real journalism, Abby is what Rachel should have been.

I watched the BIG reveal part 2 on The Last Word, I watched the Media laugh at her the next day then I watched her on The View Wednesday morning...She explained the situation but it was still weird.....

The Night of the Big Reveal did not make any sense to me as Rachel & Lawrence O'Donnell broke it down. I said to myself the entire time, that Trash Trump paid taxes that year, maybe he's not a Multi-Billionaire but the Idiot did pay taxes for that year...It was a WASTE...I mean, she got ratings and became a laughing stock but I thought she was too Smart to settle for that...

The Author/Reporter that claimed Trump's returns was put in his Mailbox is one of Trump's old friends and Authors...I'm certain one of Trump's Staffers gave him Trump's returns..He appears on MSNBC a lot....So my guess is Rachel knew the Tax-reveal was nothing Grand but she wanted to get some quick ratings....I don't know what else to think....

Trump is going to be in prison in 2020. :lol

Btw, 12 year old tax returns mean nothing. Trump is hiding something by not releasing recent tax returns.

Everyone knows that but the main question is why Rachel sold the BIG "reveal" as something big when it clearly made him look good....Why did Lawrence O'Donnell go along with it when he knows his Viewers rely on him to break Shit down?

Rachel claimed they spent HOURS checking & double checking with the White House...Not one time did Common sense walk into the room...OR...She did not give a Fuck and she wanted higher ratings for 2 days...

Rachel and Lawrence are NOT stupid people and they are very clever when they link Shit to Republicans...

The story was that she HAD tax returns, not what was in them.

All this time the spin from the white house is that no returns could be released for this or that reason, namely that he was under audit. But those reasons never jibed.

I think people missed the whole point of the reveal. 2005 was a very particular year. Too much coincidence with that year and the miraculous popping up of that years returns. And the russia connection seems even more concrete and has really ramped up after the reveal.

Of course people who never watch Maddow were taken aback by her gall to give context and background and God forbid give twenty minutes of said C&B when she could've spilled her non smoking gun in five minutes and let people get back to their "This Is Us" finale.

I swear the criticism sounds like lady-talk-too-much, me-no-like.

The twitterverse.

Oh don't worry. There are plenty of left-wing Jews AND anti-Zionist Jews that are against the way Israel does business. Just don't count on the American corporate news media to tell you that.

What I don't like about her show - which is why I rarely ever watch it - is that she takes 8 minutes to work up to her polnt. The first 8 minutes of every show are a bunch of mostly-irrelevant historical stuff that leads up to 1 minute of commentary.

Not for me.

I must admit you have to not mind the historical education and seemingly disparate threads that she links together. To me it makes for a more entertaining show. And don't kid yourself the news is entertainment too.

I prefer it to the standard roundtable shouting matches and I'll-give-you-the-last-ten-seconds approach of almost every other news show out there. And that hour gives her the breathing room to do a subject justice.

You definitely leave her show smarter than when you entered it.

What you describe is what I do like about her show. I see it as putting the main point into better context and she often provides interesting history as well.

Used to like her, but her righteous rants are getting stale and very irritating.

Radio gave Birth to Rachel years ago....That's why she Loves to talk & talk & talk...Her Radio Personality fuses well with her TV personality..MSNBC was the best thing to happen to her Career & the Network...Same thing with former radio personality Wendy Williams..Wendy could talk nonstop to a TV camera forever.......

I prefer Commentators to give a brief intro then move on to the Bobblehead panel...Rachel likes to talk and you get used to it....

Exactly. And they mean even less when they make your supposed enemy look really good.

So the real question is why did she build a whole show around this big fat nothing? Why draw it out endlessly? Doesn't she have real news to report? Many of the worst things Trump is doing are being overlooked because the faux left are attacking Trump in a dishonest way. The McCarthyist anti-Russian nonsense is one example. Maddows' embarrassing self inflicted wound is another one.

Even her fellow faux left corporatists are mocking her. Here is Shillary supporting James Colbert laughing at Maddows' antics. It's just the tip of the iceberg too. There's loads of this stuff on Youtube. She really has become a punchline now.

Maddow has continued the trend of faux lefties blaming everyone else for their own failures by blaming her audience for her disastrous Nothing Pie. Yes, according to Maddow she didn't hype it or overdramatize it at all. It was the audience's fault for thinking she had some dirt. All their fault. Here's what she said...


"Because I have information about the president doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily a scandal. It doesn’t mean that it’s damning information. If other people leapt to that conclusion without me indicating that it was, that hype is external to what we did."

Once again, these corporate Democrats punch down. Go to the people with no power and blame them; that's the way for Wall Street Democrats. This is how Maddow avoids going the way of Phil Donahue or others who were fired by MSNBC for being progressive. She's a smart girl. No way she's losing that cushy job over something as old fashioned as principles or intellectual integrity. Just lie, lie and lie again.
