This chick has zero self-awareness.
On Friday night, Rachel Maddow, the nutty leftist MSNBC opinion host that hysterically pushed the debunked “Russian Collusion” narrative on her show every weeknight for three years, urged networks to stop airing the White House updates on the coronavirus outbreak because she claims that the President’s “misinformation” will “cost lives.”
“I know we ought to be getting used to this kind of thing by now, but I’m not,” Maddow began Friday night. “President Trump today, again, just flat-out wrong in public about this malaria drug that has gotten stuck in his mind, quite some distance from the facts.”
The liberal primetime host was referring to Trump’s claim Friday that the drug they’re hoping to use against the coronavirus is “effective,” but Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House task force quickly walked back the claim, saying it had not gone through a clinical trial and how the FDA previously stated that the drug had not been approved to combat the coronavirus.
“But the president loves saying things like, you know, ‘There’s a drug we’ve got and it’s very effective. It’s approved already! Everybody’s gonna get it.’ He loves saying things like that because that would be a lovely thing to be able to tell people, unless of course that’s not true in which case telling people a fairytale like that is cruel and harmful and needlessly diverting and wildly irresponsible from anyone in any leadership role,” Maddow said.
“It’s actually wildly irresponsible if somebody said that to you from a bar stool, if any of us could go to bars anymore, but to get that from somebody at the presidential podium? Nevertheless, he keeps doing it.”

Maddow said, “We should innoculate ourselves against the harmful impact of these ongoing false promises and false statements by the president by recognizing that when he is talking about the coronavirus epidemic, more often than not, he is lying.”
Can you just imagine the shrieking hysteria of Maddow if the President did stop holding these televised information sessions? She’d scream that it’s a cover-up, that Trump is hiding from the American people, and that he’s doing the bidding of China. Actually, probably not that last one since many so-called “journalists” are actively pushing Chinese communist propaganda.
She’d likely start some tin-foil-hat conspiracy theory that he’s “missing” just like Brian Stelter claimed Melania was when she had some minor surgery.
As for saying that “more often than not” Trump is lying, that’s a pretty hot take from someone who has, for three solid years, been peddling nonsense that Trump’s campaign actively worked with Russia to rig the 2016 Presidential election against Hillary with zero evidence and the Mueller Report actually debunking the claim.
Did you expect anything less from Rachel “I have Trump’s tax returns” Maddow?
What would she be without her lefty anti-Trump hysteria?
Not on MSDNC, that’s for sure.
