MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow praised the civil engagement of Americans during one of the busiest weeks in American politics in recent history.

Maddow reported on the #ProtectMueller rallies occurring at more than 1,000 locations in all 50 states — showing images and video of the marches in town after town.

“So people out in the streets tonight, and that’s asking a lot of people, right, in terms of their civic engagement,” she noted. “Just this week — just two days ago — everybody had to freakin’ line up to vote, take time out of the day, in some cases take many hours out of the day to go vote on Tuesday,” the anchor noted.

“Everybody stayed up late on Tuesday night, watching the election returns come in,” she continued.

“Now it’s just two days later, and thousands of people are out in the streets,” she noted. “Over a thousand protests all around the country.”

“Sometimes citizenship requires overtime and double shifts,” Maddow concluded.

The Internet reacted with scorn over the weekend after Second Lady Karen Pence announced a new Twitter account aimed at reelecting President Donald Trump.

In her first tweet, Pence posted a video lavishing praise on the president.

"There are probably a lot of things you don't know about me," Pence says in the video. "For example, I enjoy painting, I love to ride my bike and I like nothing better than reading a good book. On my new Twitter account, I will share what I'm up to when I'm not in the office at the White House."

Excited to start a new #Twitter account to help tell the story of all the accomplishments under the leadership of @realDonaldTrump and @mike_pence! Follow along to KEEP AMERICA GREAT! 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/RaPwC5ThyR

Both hope to add to their record hauls before they bow out at the glittering ceremony in downtown LA's Microsoft Theater.
