    I think Rachel is beautiful with or without makeup. She is an inspiration for all women.

  2. A woman is truly measured when she’s judged by the work she’s done and not by how she looks.

    Rachel, your inner beauty shines right through you. Makeup would only diminish that light.

    Being careful, minimising risks, for yourself and others, is NOT frustrating… It is an act of love!

  5. I’m tuning in to Rachel’s shows from Ireland. She’s a brilliant and articulate lady whom I greatly admire. I wish her all the best and hope that her beloved partner Susan makes a full recovery from this frightening illness. My prayers are with you and your family.

    She’s one of those rare people who actually looks better with no make-up.

  7. You don’t need make-up, Rachel. Make-up is just giving people a fake look.

    There are no words to describe how great Rachel is in all regards. May she, Susan and all her loved ones be safe!

  9. This is the type of behaviour..that strengthens my belief in the courage and honesty of the majority of my fellow Americans.

    Great, “sausage,” Rachel. I have missed you. From this Susan to your Susan: keep getting better, please. And, for whatever good it may mean to you and Rachel, please know you are both in my prayers. Good God—what a year it has been for praying! But my Catholic self is not too worn out to include you and Rachel in my efforts. What a truly Happy Thanksgiving for you this year—hooray!

  11. Best wishes to both Susan and yourself, Rachel. Take care.

  12. She couldn’t have said it anymore “humanly” than this! If you still don’t get it, or believe that the COVID virus is still killing so many of the people we love, then you never will…you need your heads examined!

    I wondered why a gentleman was presenting Rachel’s show.
    Glad her partner is getting better.
    Has real value that she has taken the time to share her experience with viewers.
    No one does Rachel’s reports as good as Rachel, her voice gets through with her truth. 👍🏆

    I do love Rachel Maddow. I’m so happy that she has a wonderful, over-20-year love!

  15. It’s lovely to hear how much someone is loved. If we could all find that.🥰🥰

  16. Rachel, I quote you repeatedly to people, “This is a terrible time to have a terrible president.” When you were urging people here to think about the ones getting sick may not be them but someone they love deeply, and that you would trade places with Susan, what you didn’t say was then Susan would be the one agonizing over whether you would live or die.

    People, you may say, “If I die, I die,” but what are you saying to your loved ones who don’t particularly have an interest in seeing you die from something you could have avoided? How utterly selfish. This isn’t about you; it’s about everyone else around you: family, friend, stranger, and foe. Do the right thing for them.

    I get the flu vaccine every year now, not for me, but as our wise infectious disease doctor at the hospital where I work urged during H1N1 in 2009, for my family and my patients. I will do the same when the coronavirus vaccine is released. But while it is in short supply, I want those far more vulnerable than I to get it first – like my husband who would have died if he had gotten H1N1 and will die if he gets COVID, because of comorbidities. He’s in another state taking care of his elderly mother and not here with me, so at least I don’t have to fear the risk of bringing it home to him every day.

    I know I’m preaching to the choir here; if you’re listening to Rachel Maddow, you already get this. Thanks for letting me vent.

    Rachel, you are GORGEOUS as I’m sure Susan has also said. She’s not ‘just saying that’. It’s absolutely true.
    🎶You are SO beautiful to me!🎶

    Susan, healing thoughts. Rachel, take care of her and of yourself.

  19. Rachel, this 79 y/o Canadian woman loves your intelligence and integrity, not to say your beauty, with or without makeup. I have been missing you but didn’t know the back story. I am so glad for you that Susan is on the mend and that you will soon be with her and with us back on MSNBC. You initially registered in my awareness in your brillian interview with Pete Buttigieg when you talked so openly with him about the coming out process and the consequences of not coming out. The openness you both shared in that interview touched me deeply even though I have no skin in that game so to speak. I admire you more than I can say. Stay well, dear one, and come back to us soon.

  20. We do trust you, Rachel. You have never let us down. Stay well.
