On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow unabashedly conceded that four years of a Republican president had exacerbated both her arrogance and pettiness. Maddow spent over five minutes of her opening monologue gushing about the Biden administration’s debt-raising, $1.9 trillion Coronavirus-relief bill.
Alluding to then-Vice President Biden’s conspicuous excitement at the signing ceremony for the Affordable Care Act in the spring of 2010, Maddow concluded her rant by describing the explicitly partisan bill as “a big F-ing deal.”
Maddow began by analogizing the significance of the—deceptively titled—American Rescue Plan to that of the socialistic Affordable Care Act, known as ObamaCare. She then attacked former President Donald Trump for including his name in the memo section of previous stimulus checks and bashed Republicans for being self-absorbed.
She lauded the new administration’s decision to not include Joe Biden’s name on the check and baselessly claimed that Democratic presidents were “the ones who are all modest.”
