(Liberty Bell) – MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, along with twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, were taken to the woodshed on Tuesday after Maddow took an opportunity during her barely viewed evening television program to lecture “bad actors” that she says falsely claim “every election is stolen” during an interview with the one-time first lady on Monday.
“That the system of democracy at its heart is the idea that the people get to decide how we are governed. And if we no longer believe that our will is effectuated through the system, if bad actors tell us falsely that every election is stolen and that the only way an election is trustworthy is if they come out on top of it, it tells you something not just about that person or that moment, it maybe wounds us as a democracy and in a way that’s hard to repair,” Maddow said, according to Fox News.
“What do you think about how we get better after the wounds that have been inflicted on us through this process?” the host went on to ask Clinton.
“Well, I think the truth matters. I think having these cases be brought and be brought in such professional manners, we’ll see how they unfold. Obviously, the trials, if there are trials, are gonna be critically important,” the big loser of the 2016 presidential election remarked in response.
“Can y’all hear yourselves tho?” podcast host Mary Katharine Ham posted on X as part of her reaction to a clip of the interview.

Seth Dillon of the Babylon Bee noted that it was “kind of awkward” to tell the twice-failed presidential candidate “to her face that she’s a bad actor who wounded our democracy.”

Other individuals brought up the fact that Maddow repeatedly tried to push the Russian collusion narrative after Trump won the 2016 election — which was proven to be a complete hoax — pointing out she had “zero self-awareness.”

Earth to Rachel Maddow…

Indeed. Hillary claimed the 2000 and 2016 elections were stolen — and questioned the legitimacy of the 2004 elections. https://t.co/YUj8kXl574

Ironically, Clinton herself has stated on numerous occasions that the 2016 election was stolen from her and referred to Donald Trump as an “illegitimate president.”
Maddow then asked Clinton about the “disconnect” between voters and current President Joe Biden.
“Joe Biden is overseeing an economy that’s had the lowest peacetime unemployment since World War II. The lowest levels of poverty, lowest levels of uninsured—people uninsured in terms of health insurance ever in the history of the country. And you just said laudatory things about him in terms of the kinds of leadership he’s modeling,” she replied.
Maddow also asked, “And yet, you know where this is going. His approval ratings aren’t strong and his prospects for re-election are sort of middling at best. What do you see as the disconnect there?”
Clinton attempted to respond by saying there are lots of Americans that don’t know what President Biden has done.
“And part of that is they don’t get their news from MSNBC, they get their news from social media, if they get any news at all. They don’t have the kind of information that would give them confidence in knowing what their government is doing. We have this bizarre situation where bridges are built and roads are being fixed and people who didn’t vote for the money to do that are claiming credit for it,” she commented.
Wow. Just wow.
Former President Donald Trump was indicted for a fourth time Tuesday on 10 charges, including solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer and conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree.
