Well, a lot has happened since MSNBC host Rachel Maddow broke down on the air about U.S. child detention camps. She got mad – and started getting even.
Maddow said on her June 24 show, “I mean, it`s impossible not to see. I mean, obviously, this is a national interest. This is something we will all have to answer for one day to our makers, right?”
On her June 25 show, Maddow cited an interview from The New Yorker. “Almost every child that we interviewed had a parent or relative in the United States. Many of them had parents in the U.S. and were coming here to be with their parents. Some of the children that we interviewed had been separated from their parents.”
Rep. Escobar: For a lot of the country, people though the Trump family separations were over, but it’s not over and we don’t believe the system has gotten any better. pic.twitter.com/JRZfMF7aSM

From all intents and purposes, Maddow’s trajectory has been similar to most sane Americans witnessing an atrocity firsthand. Anger, shock, frustration, sadness – and a will to carry on for the betterment of humanity. Thank you, Rachel.
‘We are leaderless right now!’ Trump supporters despair that he’s doing nothing as riots erupt across America
Several supporters of President Donald Trump are very upset that he is not doing enough to crack down on the violence that has swept the country ever since the killing of George Floyd last week.
As reported by the conservative Daily Wire, many conservatives who have otherwise been supportive of Trump are growing exasperated that he spent the weekend hunkered down in the White House and only sending the occasional angry tweet.
"Does Trump have dementia or something?" asked pro-Trump political pundit Mike Cernovitch. "Because sitting on his fat ass right now isn't the right move."
Desperate and ‘out-of-control’ Trump might prompt violent insurrection to stay in office: columnist
Writing for the Daily Beast, columnist Michael Tomasky made a strong case that Donald Trump has removed any doubt that he is "morally unfit" to be president and, faced with the possibility he may not be re-elected, could resort to encouraging his followers to take up arms in his defense.
"Naively, I always thought that even Donald Trump would stop short of actually inciting violence. I mean, he’s the president of the United States," Tomasky began before adding, "History means nothing to him, and the future means even less. Presidents—all presidents, even ones I didn’t like—think about the office, the future implications of their actions, the future of our institutions."
Trump is ‘capable of reading’ a unifying message — but it’s doubtful he’ll mean it: Atlanta mayor
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Monday expressed little confidence that President Donald Trump could unify the nation at a time when the United States faces a triple threat of a recession, a pandemic, and civil unrest.
During an interview on CNN, host Alisyn Camerota asked Bottoms about actions Trump could possibly take to calm nerves and bring the country together.
"What about the debate that we are told is going on in the White House, as to whether or not the president should at this moment make some sort of national statement and call for unity?" she asked. "Would you like to see that?"
