Corporate media propagandist Rachel Maddow suffered a meltdown when President Donald Trump soared to a historic victory in the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night.
Trump crushed his “rivals,” leading runner-up Gov. Ron DeSantis by roughly 30 points, as Slay News reported.
The Associated Press called the race for Trump just 31 minutes after caucusing began at 7 p.m.
The victory was called while many sites were still casting ballots, rankling campaign officials and many Republicans.
It took nearly three hours longer to determine Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won second place.
Iowans delivered Trump the strongest win by a presidential candidate in the Republican caucuses’ 48-year history.
While the epic win left a smile on Trump’s face, it prompted leftist talking heads over at MSNBC to hyperventilate.
Throughout Trump’s presidency, Maddow was a leading exponent of the Russian collusion hoax.
Since Trump announced his reelection bid, Maddow has fear-mongered about the rise of fascism and authoritarianism.
On Monday night, Maddow, in particular, appeared to have trouble processing Trump’s unprecedented success.
During Monday night’s coverage of the Iowa Caucus on MCNBC, Maddow refused to run the Republican front-runner’s victory speech.
After preventing her remaining viewers from hearing firsthand from one of the two leading presidential candidates going into the 2024 general election, Maddow claimed that “there is a cost to us, as a news organization, of knowingly broadcasting untrue things.”
“I just have to get to business just for a second,” said Maddow.
“At this point in the evening the projected winner of the Iowa caucuses has just started giving his victory speech,” she continued, apparently loath to speak Trump’s name at the outset.
“We will keep an eye on that as it happens. We will let you know if there is any news made in that speech, anything noteworthy, something substantive and important.”
“It’s not out of spite,” Maddow added.
“It is not a decision that we relish.
“It is a decision that we regularly revisit, and, honestly, earnestly, it is not an easy decision.”
Maddow continued by suggesting that Trump might seek to bring about the kind of tyrannical state first championed in the previous century by disenchanted European socialists.
The corporate media host told the Biden White House’s former press secretary and other advocates for the ruling power:
“I don’t mean to be, again, too dark as you said on this … but if we are worried about the rise of authoritarianism in this country, if we are worried about the potential rise of fascism in this country, if we’re worried about our democracy falling to an authoritarian and potentially fascist form of government, the leader who is trying to do that is part of that equation.”
According to Maddow, even worse than the threat of Trump at the helm of the opposition party is the threat posed by those who would dare support him.
“But people wanting that are a much bigger part of the equation,” Maddow warned.
“And the American electorate is made up of two major parties.
“One of those parties has been flirting with extremism on the ultra-right for a very long time.
“They’ve brought them in in a way that they haven’t been central to Republican electoral politics ever before, and I know because I’ve been studying this.”
Maddow was responding to Biden’s former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki concerning her mention of a Des Moines Register/NBC poll.
The poll found in December that Republican caucus-goers in Iowa were more likely to support Trump because of statements regarded as controversial by the liberal media.
For instance, the Trump threat of “seriously looking into alternatives to Obamacare” prompted 55% of respondents to indicate they would be more likely to support him.
50% of likely caucus-goers signaled greater support for the pledge to authorize “sweeping raids, giant camps, and mass deportations” to tackle the existential threat of illegal immigration.
43% said they were more likely to support him on account of his suggestion that “racial Left thugs that live like vermin” need to be rooted out.
The leftist talking head stressed further that no longer is the “MAGA movement” “the problem of one man,” but rather it is a problem now endemic in the GOP.
