Rachel Maddow gives 10 SECONDS of Manhattan terror coverage before pivoting hard to favorite issue

If you watched MSNBC at 9 p.m. on Tuesday to get information on the terrorist attack in New York City you were bound to be disappointed.

That’s because Rachel Maddow could not let go of her obsession for more than 10 seconds, literally, to bring the top story of the day to her viewers.

“We’re continuing to monitor the situation in Lower Manhattan tonight where an apparent terrorist attack has claimed 8 lives and the suspect is in custody, 11 people are in the hospital,” she said to start her show.

That was it before she went into her favorite topic of attempting to prove there was collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.

The host spent the next 12 minutes detailing a report from the New York Times that showe newly unsealed documents showed that Paul Manafort and Rick Gates had involvement with monies from Russia and the Ukraine.

None of what was unsealed had a thing to do with President Trump’s campaign and Russia.

A 12-minute nothing burger, that Maddow thought was more important than a terrorist attack in the heart of New York City, was reminiscent of her laughable reveal of President Trump’s tax returns a few months ago.

Famed attorney, and Democrat, Alan Dershowitz shared a different take on Fox News Tuesday afternoon, prior to the terrorist attack, when he described special investigator Robert Mueller as a “zealot” whose “ultimate goal” is to get the president or those close to him, facts be damned.

“He is not going to be satisfied until he gets to the president or people very close to him,” he said.

Neither is Rachel Maddow.

Perhaps that is why the newest ratings show that Fox News host Sean Hannity pummeled her in the ratings for the month of October.
