  • Trump and his goons will just get increasingly hysterical and DESPERATE. They’ll break ANY law, any code, to hold on to power. Protect the Mid Terms

  • Pretty sure Cohen will have already made his, “Proffer,” to Mueller. HE will spill. But, WHAT, exactly will he spill?

  • Why Listen To Me? #4

    Just read the stared points if it is too much of a burden.

    I used to be fervorous about the right and politics, but I took a step back from all of this. I ask anyone out there, whoever is listening to consider this as I will post it to many media/news sites over the next day or so.

    * Take a week or more off from media, that includes the news, social media, tv, movies and take note of how you feel before you take a break, then when the week or more is over. I have come to realize how much happier I became, and how angry, helpless, hateful I was when I was always on the news and or social media.

    Be careful of how you spend your time, you might get sucked into all of this stuff. Social media sites have billions/millions of dollars, do you think they just watch that money in a bank? They take that money and research ways to make their site more addicting so you spend more time on it. Same goes for news outlets, they realize for the left/democrats that news about Donald Trump sells by gaining audience members to view more and check back in. For the right, it is anything about the left and it draws many viewers in through that means. They draw you in, try to keep you and get you to keep come back for more. The more you get fired up the more likely you will come back. Yet what happens is you may also find yourself thinking you are at war with the right, or with the president, or whatever cause you champion. I would recommend taking a break because it is making society more devicive.

    I am not saying all news is bad, news is good since it informs us about new information. However, a lot of that new information is useless. Do you need to know the small nuances going on in the white house even though they are important at times? Not necessarily, sometimes you don't need to know that and its your call, but luckily the info is out there if you need it and sometimes it is truly crucial. Do you need to know what any celebrities are up to, who is dating who, what gossip has happened, or what some opinion of whomever has occurred? Nope, no one needs to know that, and most of the time those opinion/gossip articles or videos are negative which is a controversy starter. I see this video next to the comment I am typing, "Ex-CIA Official to Trump supporter: We're done. Get Out!"
    No one needs to know or care what that person said and it probably is negative about Trump. The same goes for the right.

    You can watch whatever video you want but I would stay away from those videos, or at least limit them down. You can be the CNN or Fox News Champions and watch every upload, great for you, but it is a lot of wasted time some times stuff you don't even need to watch. Switching from editorial pieces to just fact based articles and reading/forming your own opinion then watching videos of these folks opinions may prove better for you. Read up, read up on history, etc.

    I would say the folks on CNN are on the left, and their audience is mainly on the left, so those who are democrats are just talking to themselves in circles and are not approaching any new ideas besides the ones by other democrats. Same goes for Fox news folks, and I am not saying you need to accept others ideals, but I am saying.
    * Maybe your choice/sources for news shouldn't be the only one.

    There is no reason the person as the same party as you would want to tell you the other point of view. Go seek out both sides of the story. Question your own party the same as you question the party of others. Your party whoever you are, isn't some part of your body. You don't need your political party to survive and you can cut it off if you want.

    * In short, I would take all you hear from any news source with a grain of salt, and if it truly is important then take it seriously. If it is really really important, you won't need the news media to tell you, your neighbor will be screaming it down throughout town along with everyone else.

    * With the time off you have when you take a break from social media go better yourself, become more educated, think more creatively, exercise, etc. Go find Jesus and take life seriously! Political parties are just that. Every party must end and they all have their own themes. The lefts party theme is everyone gets the same thing, but that could also mean everyone gets nothing. The rights theme is you make the best with what you got, which means you have undefined possibilities to grow, but it takes hard hard work (which isn't necessarily a bad thing since a possibility is all ya really need).

    * In the end, Jesus is the only way. Not any of this stuff. And sure, some news is important, but I strongly recommend taking a break from it all.

    ITS YOUR CALL

  • Rachel, you are so old fashioned: you still believe that Truth is Truth. In our alternative facts world, Pardon is Justice, Pollution is Health and Money Laundering is Smart Accounting.

  • Native American says:

    The only thing "intensifying" is your imagination, Maddow. Oh, and your advertisement ratings. You need to keep jobless lemmings watching with your conspiracies.

  • MADCOW YOU GIVE LESBIANS A BAD NAME;;;;;; WHEN ALL THIS PLAYS OUT AND GOES DOWN IN HISTORY YOU WILL TOTALLY BE ON THE BAD SIDE OF IT ALL !

  • These images of Cohen walking into a courthouse with his lawyers is over a year old.
    I hate to say it, but that makes this kinda fake news.

  • Let trump and his cronies lie all they want….it only damages his credibility when they keep proving him wrong. And Mueller will be the bringer of truth soon enough (with proof).

  • Hey Richard Madcow, So what's the result of the Mueller Investigation? McCabe fired. Strzok fired. Brennan Security Clearance gone. Trump exonerated. #SlowWalker

  • Can you talk about fusion gps paid by dnc and about The Steele dossier, Bruce Ohr , Lisa page fbi agents bias , Strock got fired by fbi and why?the rest is all your speculation about Cohen

  • Evil USA. Only country in the history of Earth to allow SLAVERY and PROHIBIT IMMIGRATION.
    Democrats would never support such activities. RIGHT?

  • We should not forget that Don McGahn was also Trump's campaign lawyer. He has been a bulldog for Trump in a number of questionable fights during the election and may have helped swing Trump's election fortunes at crucial moments. He has also helped undermine campaign financing regulations and campaign financing policing at the FEC before he worked for the Trump campaign.
    So there was plenty for McGahn to talk to Mueller about – probably more than that 30 hours could cover. (As a by-the-bye, he also personally put forward both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh as Supreme Court nominees).
    Maybe McGahn will "rat" on Trump – but don't count on it.
    However, I think that the Trump team are belatedly worried because while they may have sent McGahn out as a "fixer" for the president they did not anticipate everything that could happen – and I think that something has come to light during questioning that has toppled their house of cards.

  • Bring in Hillary Clinton, she'll need to verify the Russian Dossier she and the DNC paid for against Trump. She needs to answer questions, and verify the authenticity of the information from her Fusion GPS, Chris Steele, and Russian sources…..I hope they can all come before Congress and testify…this is taking too long. If its worth Hillary paying $12 MILLION, then its worth verifying the information.

  • You mean the Hitlery KKKlansman scandals? They just got more of her Emails OH BOY! she was totally colluding with Russia and China BIG TIME!

  • Out of The Heart, The Mouth Speaks, Int'l says:

    Thank you Rachel….
    I've been saying the same thing to people on fb messenger. Stop sending me all this sizzle w/o the pop. LOL

  • Future Isscary says:

    Just amazing the kind of corrupt deplorables that the Orange Baby has surrounded himself with. Is this an accident, or is this just the current administration and the Republican party? SAD AND WRONG

  • Fake news? No, the US run by fake Americans, otherwise known as Confederates. Yes, the treasonous backstabbers are back, this time asking the entire globe to learn what jackasses look like.

  • Maddow is really enjoying herself. I think she will miss this Creature so much… if he was suddenly to disappear from the scene.

  • Rachel makes an excellent point. I have posted my own suspicions of media spin on several occasions and have to believe that there have been efforts on the part of numerous confidential sources to plant false naratives in order to manipulate the news cycle. BE CAUTIOUS . . ., especially concerning recent stories about McGahn's interaction with the Mueller investigation. Trump and persons close to him, have made far too many questionable statements at just the right time in the news coverage to be explained by coincidence alone.
    BE SMART ! ! ! DON'T BE FOOLED ! ! ! Rachel is definitely onto something.

  • TheDesert IsPatient says:

    Really Rachael? You said nothing in this segment other than we won’t know when Cohen is charged…. until he’s charged. Spilt ink? Hot air blown? Noise? Spin? Spun? Regurgitate old news. What might be?Real information? Real facts? Bla bla bla…. So this isn’t news Rachael. It’s entertainment. It’s just hot air.

  • ღSwnsasyღ _ says:

    Don't forget Brody!! That was Trump taken care of abortion! That's the only way it makes sense. Especially because he used the SAME ALIAS!!! Cohen knows!….

  • I see Russian Trolls are here again, Not this time R trolls will not get anywhere. Go trolls and tell your boss Putin "Time's Up". Vote Blue this Nov and 2020.

  • twomicefighting says:

    How come every time Trump and his acolytes quote the first amendment, it's about taking away these very rights from someone who disagrees with him? How strong an emotion is denial? Surely even his base know deep down these things Trump is doing and saying, both with First Amendment and abusing legal system are morally wrong at best and illegal at worst?

  • HAHAHaHAH !!! @1:39 Despite all the "good reporting" …"MIGHT be charged with?" ……….EXACTLY you better WAIT until an actual indictment is filed with charges before speculating so much nonsense to your viewers. Your viewers have become insane and you've only been confirming the fake news argument. Wait a second! ARE YOU IN COLLUSION WITH TRUMP AND RUSSIA, RACHEL MADDOW?? Because for any conspiracy theorist, you've just laid out all the ground work one would need to connect your ridiculous show to a scandal proving fake news is a reverse psychology experiment by the CIA to strengthen Trumps support. You know his support is growing, right? You know why? Because there's now hiring signs everywhere. The TSA lines don't ask you to take off your shoes or empty your bags as much anymore. There hasn't been any terrorist attacks or riots on American soil lately. The only violence and civil unrest is coming from the left, like people who watch and believe your show. Don't you think if you stopped spewing this nonsense and told your viewers about new opportunities and technologies your world would be a better place? So much news going on and all you do is gossip about the President.

  • Chris Cuomo posted the questions that Kavanaugh formulated for the former president Clinton. HE had to blur some parts in case children were watching.
    That is so much like the recent revelations in Pennsylvania about Catholic priests that it is unsettling.
    THAT guy will be imposing his JUDGEMENT on the citizens of AMERICA as long as he lives? YIKES.

  • This clip is mostly a waste of time as Maddow spends four minutes talking up the real meat that didn't make her YouTube feed.

  • Disagreed! The most noisy stuff without substance is labeled "Omarosa," so much so, that it is easy to suspect that this "Omarosa" stuff is a show planned by Trump and Omarosa to keep the media interest from more important matters.

  • Ivana Trump loves Quincy Jones bbc says:

    Banana Republican cuckery, blindly let your country get screwed while you cheered on. This is the beginning of the end for Spanky period going for more popcorn

  • Corpus Callosum says:

    What a difference 15 hours made. 8/21 Tuesday by 4pm,, Yeah!! The front and the back openings of the net are closing . The greasy, squealing pig will be grilled to orange crust and on our plate soon!! Yum, yum! Never see Rachel being so cautious and a bit off track. Still the best, though!

  • Alberta Jenkins says:

    God Bless you Rachel Maddow, for your passion and dedication in delivering the detailed factual truth to the American People! Love you!

  • It's all true! He's already pleaded guilty to bank fraud and campaign violation, which was directed by his moronic Mob Boss, Trump!

  • Hi Rachel Anne.👋.
    Exceptional, excellent, brilliant(smart) reporting.👍👏👏🍻.
    Rachel Anne, you are 1000% absolutely, irrefutable, unequivocally, correct.👍👏👏🍻☺.
    Keep on searching beneath the surface of the iceberg.👍🍺.
    👉👉Patience democrats, patience.👍.

  • Juan Carlos Valdes says:

    The CRIMINAL CHARGES are coming Trumpie's way!!! I can hear The MUELLER TRAIN speeding fast toward this CLOWN President!!!

  • https://www.politico.com/story/2013/01/obama-2008-campaign-fined-375000-085784
    No impeachment. Details were not even made public.

  • Mr. Maddcow is incredibly disturbing to watch. The wild hand and arm gesturing and facial contortions suggests he is in immediate need of professional mental and medical attention.

  • If this was truly an investigation on the up & up, Mueller would have indicted Podesta Brothers that worked with Manafort in Ukrainian deals, DNC Primary Fraud & funds being funneled from Bernie supporters to HRC by HRC, Brazile, and DWS, Awans, Seth Rich murder, & DWS, HRC getting debate questions from Brazile, Clinton Foundation, and the cabal by Obama officials & lies under oath, leaks, unmasking, and FISA abuses, Strzok texts, Ohr emails to Fusion GPS. Btw, Lemmy Davis is also HRC’s atty that had Cohen plea to two statutes that do NOT exist! Trump isn’t going anywhere!

  • Davidea Siebert says:

    So many Democrats are upset about this administration I am wondering why so many didn't vote? Occasional liberals can own all of what is happening. Find your backbone and vote. Those of you who were denied and legally barred I am sorry that it wasn't taken care of when Democrats had the house. Rachel is the only source I trust. I block all political feed from social media. Facts prove that it is used to stir the pot, to get differing opinions into a roiling boil and hide the real threat and that is RUSSIA and world domination. Instead of saying "I am from America" start saying you are from the States. There are 23 countries in America. Twenty of these speak SPANISH, one speak Portuguese, one speaks English and French and then there is us the States,who sing AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL and believe it is only the states. If you were born in Mexico you all ready are AMERICAN. This is a serious insult to the other 22 countries. The only thing this country is greater than…..is in prisons and prisoners and military might. WTH?

  • Trump is guilty of treason. Hang Trump before he gives Putin the nuclear codes. Do not allow Trump to corrupt the Supreme Court. Trump is under criminal investigation and appointing a Supreme Court Justice is a conflict of interest.

  • MSNBC, please cover the 17-state US national prisoners human rights strike. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/aug/23/prison-strike-us-canada-forced-labor-protest-activism

  • Maddow is a left wing propagandist and by any means not a journalist. She is pathetic . Look at the economy. unemployment and jobs all thanks to Trump. TRUMP 2020.! msnbc IS VERY FAKE NEWS.

  • So, what's the latest on the Trump Russia Collusion Conspiracy? Here for some update by Russia Maddow, Conspiracy Theorist at MSNBC.
