Journalism Crucial As Trump Flirts With War Without Credibility | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


  1. Eric tRump, Don Jr. & Jared all need to sign up immediately for active front line duty & I don’t want to hear one of them claiming “inherited bone spurs” as a preclusion.

    1. All you people say is “bone spurs” like stfu I don’t agree with trump on things but dos t mean he didn’t do a good job

    2. @Micah Bell Remember when all you people could say was “he’s a Muslim” or “he was born in Kenya”…
      And, Drumpf isn’t doing a good job. He just flushed the last 16+ years of military experience in Iraq down the drain. Every dead servicemen, all that wealth… to distract from his failures.

    3. Jason Bohrer Yeah i never did and i supported Obama but didn’t he give them like over 400 mil that seems kinda stupid knowing Iran

    4. @Micah Bell dodged service w a lie because he is a coward…. I served. A lot of people have but not the cowardly, lying Fraud in Chief and not his brood of frauds..
      All of them caught red handed stealing donations from donors to the Trump Foundation charity… ordered to take classes on how not to commit charity fraud, paid 2mill in restitution, banned from running nonprofits because of “a shocking pattern of illegality”.

  2. Next move – “Your bank account has been hacked by Iran and so we need to bomb them into oblivion.”

    1. john white ya wish Obama and Biden didn’t give 1.7 billion dollars to Iran to buy missiles from Russia. Trump will fix the wrongs hopefully

    1. Diego Winterborg what has taking to the streets gotten you? Other than some burnt trash cans and broken windows.

    2. Hello Human Being please please do!! Vandalizing the cities you live in is very amusing to the adults. Love watching the guys in skinny jeans stand back and let the fat women fight for them. Lmao🤣😂🤣😂🖕

    3. Some college kids throwing their selves around like screaming toddlers in liberal cities change nothing. No one cares but people who attend Karl Marx University wimps.

    4. @sharon olsen
      Trump Landslide Victory in 2020!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
      KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  3. @MSNBC Please .. enough with the 2 minute segments … You need to go back to a reasonable length video … like you used to have up until a few weeks ago.

    1. @kylar lovelady Nyet, people are tired of cowards like you hiding behind fake names spouting your “opinions”, which just so happens to be the same as the Kremlin propaganda that every other vacant head keeps echoing. Get a real job.

    2. Sean Conway Nope That’s my real name 😂 I’ve been working since 16 and have been very interested in politics since high school. So I know politics before trump. Unlike most people that have such strong opinions against trump like yourself.

    3. @bernadette black most of the MSNBC shows have podcasts. I can get mainstream news and even TYT but my backup is podcasts.

  4. Has anyone ever seen the movie “The Wizard of Oz”? Do we or do we not have a Wizard of Oz in the White House, who has surrounded himself with brainwashed toadies. Nancy (i.e., Dorothy) please pull back the curtain.

    1. D.A. Justice Ministries The wizards are pulling the strings of the media. The dwindling audience of CNN/MSNBC are the remaining brainwashed. Hopefully you will awaken soon.

  5. The ability to get information and facts we can believe from the United States government flew out the door with the Warren Commission.

    1. Salvador Vela I agree. That is when our government ceased being “for the people”, when it assassinated the Kennedys.

  6. The stunning thing about Mike Pompeo’s five identical performances on the Sunday talk shows on Sunday was not that he refused to directly answer any question and not that I did not believe a word he said, but that I got the definite impression that Pompeo himself know he was lying and didn’t care if anyone believed him or not.

    In fairness, I admit that I only watched three of the appearances and due to their stunning similarities, I assumed the other two likely identical.

  7. “Be prepared, there is a small chance that our horrendous leadership could unknowingly lead us into World War III.”
    — Donald Trump, August 31, 2013

    1. Richard Edwards Who? The Trump Administration? Yes, i agree. No diplomacy, just Trump’s Cover Up. Pathetic.

  8. Remember S&L scandal with Bush’s son……and then there was Desert Storm! Impeachment and then there is possible war with Iran!! Diversion!! Yes he is see-through!

    1. You forgot to add : PENCE IS THE ONE YOU PUT THE FINAL LIE ( blow) to LIGHTEN FIRE FOR WAR …( said HE SAW & THEY ” FOUND” WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION- LIE on which ( according to death of thousands ) he should be in HAG & IN JAIL

    1. Mark Twain started his career writing for newspapers. Like Rachel implied, we need the press like never before.

    2. “@Andrew S feels targeted by a quotation on YouTube. Maybe he’s a politician. ”
      – Elaine Karlsson

  9. Something is afoot where I’m seeing a great deal more comments questioning the credibility of R. Maddow and MSNBC. What’s up?

    1. The Mentally Unstable Snowflakes Are Prolly Taking Their Meds And See That Richard Moscow Maddow Is A Very Dangerous Liar ….

  10. the electoral college or somebody need to approve a new law that states that when the US must be in a war situation the potus and high rank politicians children ( 18 years or older of course) must be in the front lines …….
