Maddow: Donald Trump Lied About Intelligence Report Concluding “No Effect” On Election

Immediately after Donald Trump came out of his classified intelligence briefing on Putin’s Russian cyber-hacking of the DNC, he falsely claimed the report ‘concluded’ the hacking did not have any effect on the election & that it found the Russian hackers were ‘unable’ to hack the RNC!

Both of those claims were utterly false & deliberate LIES! Donald has no idea what the truth or facts are.

Watch as Rachel Maddow calls Trump a liar more times than you can count.

Rachel Maddow Asks Ted Cruz Campaign About “Kill The Gays” Rally Appearance

Rachel Maddow reports on Ted Cruz, Republican presidential candidate, avoiding directly addressing his association with religious extremists who cited the Bible as justifying executing homosexuals and abortion doctors.

According to Maddow, Cruz’s campaign asked for evidence that the anti-gay rant occurred: “Send me a video or audio where he explicitly says this and I will look at it.”

Video of the vile speech wasn’t enough for Cruz’s people, though. The campaign responded with two words: “Not explicit.”

I think the speech is clear as can be. It goes without saying that it would appear that even “implicit” calls for executing gays would be coolio with Cruz.

Rachel Maddow’s Gleeful Reaction To Franklin Graham’s Epic Bank Fail

Rachel Maddow shares her gleeful response to the epic fail by evangelist Franklin Graham, who took umbrage at Wells Fargo’s latest LGBT inclusive ad.

From his Facebook page: “Have you ever asked yourself – how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media, and the gay & lesbian community?”

Graham took all of his company’s account out of Wells Fargo (after the above online rant) and moved them to another bank, BB&T.

Then it turned out BB&T is just as LGBT supportive as Wells Fargo in that the bank is a platinum sponsor of Miami Beach Gay Pride and much more.

#EpicFail

Rachel’s upbeat reaction to the whole escapade is pretty fun.

“I love this story so much I want to take it to Franklin Graham’s new bank and marry it. If it’s a lady.”

Rachel Maddow debunks idea that US Presidents have never appeared on comedy shows

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow debunks the assertion of some political pundits on the right that President Barack Obama’s appearance on the Funny or Die web video “Between Two Ferns” debased the office of the presidency.

Maddow features Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush – all who appeared with popular comedians at some point in their presidency.

As Maddow says, if you are concerned about the “dignity of the presidency” being imperiled by these appearances, “you should probably lighten up.”

David Letterman on excluding gays from marriage: “It is absolute stupidity”

With Rachel Maddow sitting as the guest, no less.

Said Letterman:

“I’m just sick and tired, and I think it has really crossed the line of being nonsense. This ongoing, politically nuanced, religiously nuanced discussion of gay marriage, gay rights. It is absolute stupidity….

“Humans have the right to do what humans do, that’s it. End of story. There’s no argument. There’s no exceptions. Humans have rights and they get to do what humans get to do. Case closed. Good night.”
