MSNBC host Rachel Maddow escalated her all-out war with the Trump administration this week; bizarrely equating the President’s posts on social media with pamphlets distributed by the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s.
Maddow was referencing President Trump’s tweet over the weekend that warned individuals attempting voter fraud during the 2018 midterm elections will be caught and prosecuted.
“All levels of government and Law Enforcement are watching carefully for VOTER FRAUD, including during EARLY VOTING. Cheat at your own peril. Violators will be subject to maximum penalties, both civil and criminal!” posted the President.

“There is a history of this kind of intimidation … around voting in our recent past,” said Maddow. “Those leaflets carried a message that was essentially the 1922 version of the president’s tweet. The leaflet said, ‘Do not attempt to vote unless you are legally registered’ … They also had a little illustration next to the text, a guy in a hood with the initials KKK written on the hood.”

MAD MADDOW: Rachel Unveils ‘THE TRUTH’ Behind Trump’s Davos Visit
The conspiracy theorists at MSNBC struggled this week to wrap their heads around why the President of the United States would attend a worldwide economic summit; instead baselessly claiming that Trump was visiting Davos, Switzerland so he could -of course- meet with Russian.
Hyper-liberal anchor and full-time Trump hater Rachel Maddow used her show to promote the newest tin-foil hat conspiracy theory that the Commander-in-Chief was visiting the global forum to secretly meet with Russian officials and businessmen.
In a brilliantly timed screen shot, a reporter for the Intercept grabbed Maddow’s breathless coverage of Trump’s international visit, revealing all the names of Russian agents Trump’s team could possibly meet with during their time in Davos.

While in Davos, the President touted his “America First” foreign policy; saying he was attending the summit to promote “peace and prosperity” across the globe.
WHOOPS! Rachel Maddow Show SPARKED DRUNKEN Death Threats, FBI Investigation
An enraged Rachel Maddow fan reportedly made numerous death threats to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the head of the Environmental Protection Agency; sparking an FBI investigation after the individual posted their hateful comments on social media.
According to the case report released by the EPA’s Office of Inspector General, titled “Twitter Threat to Murder Administrator Pruitt and Senator Mitch McConnell,” an unidentified suspect admitted to law enforcement that he or she was “drinking” while watching a repeat of ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ when they decided to post the incendiary comments.
The individual “admitted to posting the tweets in question regarding Senator McConnell and Administrator Pruitt on April 8, 2017,” adding the suspect was “drinking while watching the Rachel Maddow show and posted the tweets as a flippant comment, not realizing they would be considered a threat.”
Maddow and other liberal hosts, including late-night television comedians, found themselves in the center of a media firestorm throughout the first year of President Trump’s first term in office.
Hollywood celebrities and media elites -such as Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Kimmel, Johnny Depp, and others- routinely incite violence against President Trump and those closest to him. Depp made global headlines last summer when he threatened to kill President Trump during a UK music festival.
