WATCH: Maddow reports early voting in Georgia is ‘going through the roof’ as voters react to GOP suppression

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow continued her focus on Republican voter suppression efforts on Tuesday — but finally offered some hope for her views concerned with the GOP’s attacks on democracy.

Maddow has shamed Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp for his disenfranchisement efforts as the state’s chief elections officer — while he is also the Republican nominee for governor.

“In the last midterm election in 2014 — so four years ago — on the first day of early voting, about 21,000 people voted, Maddow reported. “Yesterday, look at this, over 69,000 people voted — that’s an apples to apples comparison with the last midterm — over 69,000 people cast an in-person early ballot in Georgia yesterday, compared to 21,000 on the same day in the last midterm.”

“That’s more than triple the number of people four years ago,” Maddow noted. “That number is super high, even though some voters experienced the kind of hurdles we have come to expect, particularly this year in Georgia.”

Maddow noted, “when you add in the mail-in ballots, more than 129,000 Georgians have voted already in advance of the November 6th election.”

“And again, make the comparison with the last midterm, this time four years ago, the number was just over 46,000, now look at it,” Maddow continued. “So mail in and in-person early voting, the numbers combined this year are nearly triple what they were in the last midterm in the great state of Georgia.”

“We’re now seeing early voting and mail-in ballot voting in Georgia just going through the roof, at least in the early days,” Maddow concluded.

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

on

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

on

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

Published

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
