Rachel Has a Sad about Mueller Gate
After two long years of breathlessly reporting on every minute detail of Russia Gate, Rachel who was fishing in Tennessee had to leave the fishy alone and come back to talk talk talk talk talk as usual about Mueller sending in his report.
The unremarkable conclusion of the Mueller probe has been a heavy blow for MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who by some accounts shed tears live on television as she came to terms with her indictment-deficient reality.
The MSNBC host, who has devoted countless hours of airtime to gossiping about the alleged ties between President Donald Trump and the Kremlin, struggled to keep her composure while discussing the end of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which wrapped up on Friday without issuing any further indictments.
According to the Daily Caller, Maddow came close to crying as she commented on the Russiagate-deflating development. Many on Twitter insisted that she actually shed tears. A clip of the broadcast shows a watery-eyed Maddow seemingly grappling with the reality that Donald Trump and his family will not be frog-marched out of the White House.
Maddow didn’t succumb to this unexpected and shocking injustice, however, and reassured her viewers that Mueller’s decision not to issue a single collusion-related indictment is the “start of something apparently, not the end of something.”

So can those of us on the left criticize Trump on the actual issues now, and FINALLY give up on #Russiagate?
For 2 years, @maddow has lead @MSNBC in selling us the narrative that Trump colluded w/ Russia
What will @maddow do now? Double down or actually do journalism?

It took Rachel close to 2 1/2 minutes to get to teh point. I just might have to watch her show Monday after she takes the weekend to get her thoughts straight on this epic failure.
