Rachel Maddow: People Who Contest Biden 'Victory' Should ‘Go to Jail’
Far-left host switches narrative for Joe Biden
Far-left MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who for the last four years has contested President Donald Trump's presidency as "illegitimate," now believes people who are contesting Joe Biden's media-projected "victory" should go to jail.
Here is the transcript from Monday night:
I think a lot of people are also worried about what you were describing there, about these tactics, both by the president and by his campaign and by Republicans who support him; that after an election, elections officials are now subject to lobbying, subject to pressure, subject to enticement or threats in a way that should get them to do whatever their party or the party in power or anybody else who has an effect in terms of influencing them, can get them to do.
I want to go back to that not being a norm in our democracy. I’m worried that now that the Trump administration has set this precedent, it will be. And it feels like the only way to stop that becoming the new normal, at least in Republican politics, is for some people to go to jail for it or to feel like they are going to get in trouble if they get caught doing something like that.
Maddow has spent the best part of four years spreading lies and paranoia about Trump's "collusion" with Russia, which was eventually concluded by special counsel Robert Mueller who exonerated the president last year.
But beyond smearing the president with a false accusation of Russia collusion, Maddow continues to attack Trump and his allies in any which way she can.
Only recently, Maddow spread a doctored image purporting to be a text message between Rudy Giuliani and Ivanka Trump has been shared widely across Twitter.
The Big Tech company’s rules on “disinformation” failed to restrict Rachel Maddow and an army of Twitter verified accounts from spreading the image.
The image was eventually deleted after the student that initially tweeted it called it a “parody.”
Here are a few of Maddow's greatest hits on spreading misinformation and outright lies against Trump:
Maddow told her audience that Putin might use compromising video of Trump (that does not exist) to blackmail him into withdrawing troops.
3/ There was that time in Jan 2017 when you speculated that Putin may use the pee tape & other kompromat to force Trump into withdrawing US troops near Russia. How did that one turn out? pic.twitter.com/XuXXagyCNb— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019
Maddow sounds the false alarm of Trump taking orders directly from Putin
6/ There was that time when you explored the scenario under which Putin "gives orders" to his puppet Trump at an upcoming meeting. Do you think Putin ordered Trump to stage a coup in Venezuela/try to kill the German-Russia gas pipeline/nix the INF treaty? pic.twitter.com/cbSrGt2xR3— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019
Maddow Suggests Trump Used Cohen to Pay Off Russian Hackers
7/ How about that time when you speculated -- citing the Steele dossier -- that Cohen billed Trump $50k for "tech services" to pay off Russian hackers? It was actually to pay a US firm (https://t.co/GGK6FQLvRJ). pic.twitter.com/TcqdN8mC4z— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019
During this segment, Maddow outright lies about the White Hosue concealing Trump-Putin Transcript
10/ How about when you claimed that the White House edited out a key question from the Trump-Putin presser? The WP showed that to be false, and the result of live video/audio switching issue (https://t.co/miq3aLxhGf). Yet you never corrected it: pic.twitter.com/LrnPyMcTMQ— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 28, 2019
And here is Maddow doing asserting Russia got Tillerson fired:
20/ Speaking of installing Tillerson, remember when you also speculated that Russia was actively getting Trump "to weaken the parts of America that most annoy and that most undermine Vladimir Putin", and so that's why the State Dept. was "hollowed out, disappeared, and muted"? pic.twitter.com/6mX5qCCq5F— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) April 29, 2019
