She was just so doggone sure of it.
There’s world class political seer Rachel Maddow assuring her viewers before the 2016 election of this:
“Because the new electoral map just out from NBC News based on current polling…and one big problem…for Donald Trump…”……well….there were a lot of big problems according to Rachel.
Things were so bad for Trump it was possible he would lose Kansas and South Carolina. Wow! On and on she went.” If you do the math” she said….if Trump wins all the toss-up states? “He would still lose.”
Bless her heart. It just seemed so obvious! Absolutely everybody who was anybody knew what was coming. And then…and then.
As some witty soul posted on YouTube, then came the “Maddow Meltdown”. She is grim. Downcast. She stares into the camera and begins this way:
“You’re awake, by the way. You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also, you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell. This is your life now, this is our election now, this is us, this is our country — it’s real,”
An entire year later? They still don’t get it.
And you wonder why stories like this?
Stop wondering. Just look at Rachel’s face. Enough said.
