I just counted number of times rump spat out the word 'corruption' in that clip…..12, 12 times….really? Guess we should now believe he cares about nothing but corruption? How stupid does he think we are?

Trump is the father of corruption! it sounds so troubling for him to say that word without talking about himself. DJTrumps entire life was mired in corruption, money launderings, lying about how many units in a building was sold, selling properties that was already sold, stealing from charites, trying to change his daddys portfolio to direct funds to his account, without Fred knowing it, and using his daddys financial information as his own! depriving his dead brothers child of health insurance. It's no wonder his own mother hated him? But DJTrump is the epitome of corruption!! Thanks Rachel !

Rachel hits it out of the ball park with her analysis of how the Chief Con takes his sins and failures and makes them into giant spit balls to hurl at his opponents. Neutralizing the negative consequences of his crimes is a much easier way for the criminal Trump to protect himself. The false narratives must be repeated, though. It takes multiple bites from this poison spitting spider to fully anesthetize the victim. There is danger in that, for everytime Trump deflects he provides an opportunity for the wide awake victims – the ones not yet paralyzed by his venom… Read more »

It's funny how the Democrats were really the ones using Ukraine as a Candy store and money tree during the Obama administration. But that's real news so it won't be touched on by the Mainstream News.

If Trump were really that concerned about corruption, he'd surrender himself to prosecutors and turn state's evidence against the rest of his staff.

If a guy always touted his emptied achievement certainly he is incompetent and pathetic. A competent person is reserved and substantive without fanfare. An empty vassal makes the most noise. That is Donald Trump.

Donald Trump and Stephen Bannon conned Trump supporters other than the rich and corrupted ones whose support is for money under a pretext of Robinhoodism, American first motto, to advance their con game to gain political power. Wake up people.

No…. Trump is blurry on meaning of Corruption …. 80% of Voting Citizens have no trouble at all defining and Acknowledging Events Of Same., no matter if they follow-with dumping Trump… The other 20% don’t care, or are of same ‘unknowing’ ilk.

When this present crisis, caused by Vlad Putin using Trump as his foil, has been quashed, Rachel Maddow and her fellow explaining journalists will be the true heroes of this battle to survive. Bless you, Rachel Maddow.

Taking advantage of the poorly educated, and the people who feel disenfranchised is not a new tactic Hitler did the same thing when gaining power before WW2…Trump is just following in his mentors footsteps.

Wonder what Manafort asked for in return. Something that rhymes with hardon perhaps, but that Rudy and Trump CAN make happen.

I think that Trumps character can be summed up by the fact that he forced his kids to pay him for the use of his golf course for a charity golf tournament. They could no longer pay the promoted $1M prize payable to the person who achieved a hole in one. Charity fraud, a particularly heinous violation of the law and of human decency.

The walls are closing in on Trump, his family, and their allies. Hopefully, prior sealed charges against Trump and Trump associates are unsealed. Trump's criminal empire must be exposed and completely dismantled. Trump believed 110%, becoming the president would allow him to escape justice when his crimes, crimes which he could face life in prison, are exposed. Fortunately for his victims, his failed presidency (I really hate to refer to this man as a president) will serve to expose all of his crimes. Trump honestly thought he would gain the support of everyone. And therefore afford him protection from investigations… Read more »

Getting Married with the consumation of children without the blessing of your womb that delivered you into the world is corruption. Slavery is corruption in our society after it has been abolished in our society. Incest is corruption in our society as practiced by other cultures and religions. Is my point making clear?

We'll never know exactly how much influence Russian interference really had on our elections, mainly because the morons that fell for it, will never admit they were conned.

Just more MSNBC "public diplomacy," compliments of the SMITH-MUNDTZ MODERNIZATION ACT of 2012, (incorporated into the FY 2013 NDAA) giving legislative authorization, via the U.S. State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), to disseminate PROPAGANDA "activities," onto its own [US] citizens domestically, and abroad…way to go, Rachel Maddow!

The problem with fake news is that when something really does happen, people will not believe it because they will become cynical and skeptical of legitimate reporting. That keeps the powers that be in control because they will be able to get away with anything. I call it the "Chicken Little Syndrome".

What you think ? Is it a coincidence that a German former Chancellor (Gerhard Schröder) now is working for Gazprom? After he makes the contract as Chancellor for the northstreampipeline to bring russian gas faster to Germany? Nobody in Germany think its coincidence.

The right has manipulated the conversation for years and we've let them get away with it.
Inheritance tax, for example, is now "death tax." Anti-abortion lunatics euphemistically label themselves "pro-life"
as they gun down doctors on the street.
It's an insidious tactic and unless you're vigilant it's often a successful one.

Donald's repeating the word 'corruption' under medical advice as it helps his denture cement settle and bond to his newly imported elephant tusk knashers.
