MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is organizing a series of street protests scheduled for Thursday in opposition to the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions; saying this is a “break glass in case of emergency” moment to protect special counsel Robert Mueller.
Maddow posted her call-to-action on social media Wednesday just hours after Sessions officially resigned from his post inside the Trump administration, saying “It’s happening. This is the ‘Break Glass in Case of Emergency’ plan to protect the Mueller investigation. 5pm (local time) protests tomorrow/Thursday Nov 8. We knew this would happen at some point — the day has arrived.”

Attorney General Sessions stepped-down from his position less than one day after voters went to the polls for the 2018 midterm elections; thanking the President for the “opportunity” to help advance his agenda.
MADDOW MELTDOWN: MSNBC Host Compares Trump’s Tweets to 1922 ‘KKK Pamphlet’
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.
