MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will take a “hiatus” from her top-rated primetime show, according to Claire Atkinson of Business Insider.


Atkinson reports:

Maddow is taking time to work on a Focus Features movie based on her book and podcast “Bag Man” about a political bribery scandal. It will be directed by Ben Stiller and Maddow will be an executive producer. The influential anchor is also developing a new podcast.

Maddow’s break from her nightly hosting duties will only be for a few weeks:

Maddow recently signed a new contract with MSNBC that pays her $30 million a year and will keep her at the network through the 2024 election.

GOP Whining Racism Supreme Court

Majorie Taylor Greene Has A Meltdown Over Biden’s Plan To Nominate A Black Woman As Next SCOTUS Justice

Even though she swears she’s not a bigot or a racist, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is absolutely apoplectic that President Joe Biden has promised to nominate a black woman to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.

Greene made an appearance on the “War Room” podcast of indicted former Trump administration official Steve Bannon on Monday, and she immediately began whining about Biden and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has said he welcomes the nomination of a black woman to the high court:

“We want leaders in Washington that are actually going to do the job instead of beg and cry on television for small dollar donations when someone is actually trying to get them out of office. And so for Lindsey Graham to stand there on television and defend Joe Biden’s pick for a Black justice on the Supreme Court, which is the most racist thing — I thought we were done with racism in this country — we should look at character, accomplishments, and he ability to do the job.”

Greene then added that all Graham is doing is “helping Biden’s agenda” and “doesn’t care about the two-tier justice system in America because he feels he was a victim of the riot at the Capitol right along with Nancy Pelosi…”

Did Marjorie have a problem with any of the SCOTUS nominees from failed, one-term former President Donald Trump? Of course not; they were all white and right-wing extremists.

The fact that Greene would dare to say, “I thought we were done with racism in this country” proves just how dangerously out of touch she is. It also suggests that she feeling aggrieved by the idea of a black Supreme Court justice because her bigotry cannot allow her to consider the idea without it arousing anger in her tiny cinder of a heart.

Donald Trump Viral Video

Video Of Trump Praying With A Supporter Shows The Full Extent Of His Hair Weave

Just in case there’s anyone left in the world who doesn’t already know, allow me to state a fact about failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump: He’s been going bald for decades.

For years, there have been rumors that Trump is indeed losing his hair and has gone to extreme lengths to hide it. For example, a 2018 article from the New York Post:

President Trump’s bizarre hairdo is the result of scalp-reduction ­surgery, careful styling held in place by strong hairspray — and too much cheap dye, according to a new book.

Daughter Ivanka Trump often makes fun of her dad’s comb-over to friends and delights in explaining how the crazy coiffure comes together, according to “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

“She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction ­surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,” journalist Michael Wolff writes in the book, out Jan. 9.

In other words, Trump has had sections of his scalp reduced by surgery and now has what can most charitably be called one hell of a hair weave.

And now we have new video which seems to prove the hair weave theory as per Wolff’s book.

In the video, posted online by Molly Jong-Fast, a fast food worker asks Donnie if she can pray for him. He agrees and that’s when the weave becomes embarrassingly visible. Take a look:

That was all it took so set off waves of laughter and mockery on social media.


Capitol Insurrection Donald Trump U.S. Senate

MTG Viciously Attacks Lindsey Graham After He Criticizes Trump’s Idea Of Pardoning Jan. 6 Conspirators

Once again, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump has set members of the GOP against one another, which could prove fatal to Republicans as they try to unify their party and win the 2022 midterm elections.

This time, Trump has Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) lashing out at Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over remarks the ex-president made Saturday evening during a rally in Conroe, Texas.

Specifically, Trump hinted he might just issue presidential pardons to those who have been charged with taking part in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol:

“Another thing we’ll do — and so many people have been asking me about it — if I run and if I win, we will treat those people from January 6 fairly. We will treat them fairly,” he said at a rally in Conroe, Texas. “And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons. Because they are being treated so unfairly.”

That didn’t sit well with Graham, who pushed back at Trump on Sunday, according to Newsweek:

“I don’t want to send any signal that it was OK to defile the Capitol. There are other groups with causes that may want to go down to the violent path that these people get pardoned.”

Graham’s remarks set Greene off on a tangent which she posted on the Telegram social media app:

“Lindsey Graham has done nothing about J6 (Jan. 6).

“I guess Lindsey Graham doesn’t care about being presumed innocent until proven guilty. Americans are being treated worst than Islamic terrorists at Gitmo and Lindsey Graham doesn’t care. He doesn’t care about their due process rights. He doesn’t care that they haven’t seen their families and are denied seeing their attorneys most of the time. He doesn’t care that these pretrial J6 defendants are denied hair cuts, shaving, chapel, and the most basic of human rights. He doesn’t care that they are abused in the DC jail because they are white, male, and voted for the very President that he supposedly supports.”

The Georgia Republican then added this to her screed:

“While no one agrees with the violence and riot at the Capitol on J6, Lindsey Graham would rather see pretrial J6 defendants be abused and forgotten just like Nancy Pelosi wants them abused and forgotten. Instead of actually doing something about the great injustice happening to pretrial Americans awaiting their day in court, Lindsey Graham turns his head to their abuse, votes for Joe Biden’s nominees, votes for Joe Biden’s Infrastructure bill, and then pretends to be a friend to President Trump. Aren’t we all sick and tired of those kind of ‘friends.'”

Be sure and note the line “While no one agrees with the violence and riot at the Captiol on J6…” However, Greene does indeed agree with that took place, and has made that clear on multiple occasions. She is also suspected of having played a part in what transpired on that horrific day.

The good news is that if Republicans are sniping at each other, it weakens them. Leave it to Trump to set off a civil war inside the GOP.

Donald Trump Trump Supporters WTF?!

Woman At Saturday Trump Rally In Texas Says Donald Will Resurrect Princess Diana And Michael Jackson

Failed, twice-impeached, one-term former President Donald Trump held one of his pathetic rallies in Conroe, Texas on Saturday evening, and before he ever took the stage, his MAGA moron faithful were proving they’re even dumber than the imbecile they so fervently adore.

One woman said that the Joe Biden we now see is actually a “fake” because “the real Biden was assassinated at Gitmo in March 2019.”

Oh, and she also thinks that Trump has resurrected dead celebrities and suggested that Michael Jackson, John F. Kennedy Jr., and Princess Diana would all be at Trump’s upcoming inauguration because he was essential in helping them “escape.”

There was also a man wearing a cowboy hat who held up a sign showing President Joe Biden wearing a dog collar and leash that was held by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

And it wouldn’t be a Trump rally without the mathematically and historically challenged idiots who love to wear clothing that only makes sense if you have the IQ of an eggplant:

And the signs. You gotta have the signs:

One day we’ll look back on this time in American history and laugh — Once we stop crying.
