MSNBC is paging Rachel Maddow.
Last night, the left leaning news network would have won the prime time race if Maddow had been hosting her show.
Instead, Alex Wagner lost to Fox News’s Sean Hannity by about 300,000 viewers.
Before Wagner and Hannity, at 8pm, Chris Hayes beat the miscellaneous Fox News show by about 100,000 viewers– 1.6 mil vs. 1.5 million.
Later at 10pm, Lawrence O’Donnell took down Laura Ingraham once again, with 1.9 million vs her 1.7 million.
These numbers are crucial right as we are in the thick of Donald Trump’s disgraceful arrest and arraignment after his second indictment. MSNBC needs Maddow to get back in the saddle, so to speak. Wagner is fine, but she’s not yet a star.
Meantime, Trump has raised almost $7 million from clueless donors who seem to believe none of this is happeing. He has so bewitched the uneducated they’re sending him money hand over fist– money they don’t have, will never get back– and he’s laughing at them behind closed doors.
Proof of that? After the arraignment Trump stopped in Miami at a Cuban sandwich stop and announced he “buying food for everyone.” According to reports, he left soon after and never opened his wallet.
Trump followers are gullible members of a cult. It’s time to wake up!
