MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on election results: ‘You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream’

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow, one of Donald Trump’s fiercest television critics this election season, could not hide her despondency.

As Trump edged closer to victory in the early hours of the morning on Wednesday, Maddow looked into the camera and said to her viewers: ‘You’re awake by the way. You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream.’

Then she added: ‘ Also, you’re not dead and haven’t gone to hell. This is your life now.

‘This is us. This is out country. It’s real.’

Maddow’s agony was being cheered on Twitter by Trump supporters to such a degree that Maddow was trending.

As the votes rolled in, Maddow blasted people who voted for minor candidates who they knew had no chance of winning the presidency.

‘Well, it is what it is. People go into this eyes wide open,’ Maddow said. ‘If you vote for somebody who can’t win for president, it means that you don’t care who wins for president.’

  1. Who knew there were this many in the closet racists.

    I fear for our

  2. I too am despondent!! How did the polling go SO WRONG?? Maybe all the law suites filled against Trump will get him impreached within the first year before he starts WWIII. I can not stand to even hear him talk.He is so stupid!! I use to watch MSNBC all the time and now I won’t be able to start watching again because I will become so sad. What good news will come out of this new situation. Stopping all the health insurance gains, unfunding planned parenthood, stop abortions with may women suffering. Maybe I should move to canada Why do we have so many cult following people in this country. He reminds me of Hitler God help us!!

  3. Nate Silver and your BS 538 are dead to me.

  4. I am now most worried for the DACA and DAPA recipients. Stay strong.

  5. @FAEN-Honestly, I thought Trump might win, but was hoping it wouldn’t happen. I knew there were a lot of closet racists out there and I’ve experienced polls that were in error before. It’s unfortunate he won, but we can’t always be on the winning side. It does suck, but it just motivates me more to fight harder for equality and inclusion of all people. Two steps forward, one step back.

    Probably the most heartbreaking thing about this election to me is the effect it will have on the Supreme Court.

  6. God Bless America!! you are not in hell little macho Rachel. Welcome, to the new improve USA..ONE NATION UNDER GOD…WHO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP..ARE POLICE FIREFIGTHERS US MARINES LIKE MY SELF US ARMY US NAVY NURSES TEACHERS AND EVERY PATRIOT THAT IS SICK AND TIRED OF ALL YOUR CORRUPTION/LIBERAL LIFE…SO, MY ADVICE TO YOU..FROM A US MARINE A FEMAELE MOVE TO CANADA…
