Rachel Maddow has been wrong on several Trump-related conspiracies.
Can anyone say, “No collusion, Rachel!”
And that’s why people are so upset that Rachel Maddow would make this giant and shocking leap to connect Trump to a child abuser.
Not that it’s beneath her, mind you.
Rachel Maddow loves to take the smallest story or the most minute detail of Trump’s life and report on it like it’s the straw that’ll break the camel’s back.
And she thinks she’s found another straw.
Now, before you dismiss this and think Maddow’s going to try and tie Trump to Jeffery Epstein, that’s not the case at all.
Instead, Maddow believes she’s found an even juicier secret.
She thinks that the recent child sex-trafficking charges of one-time Trump employee George Nader are going to bring Trump down.
There’s no doubt about it, anything to do with child abuse or sexual abuse is a heinous crime.
Which is why it’s unbelievable Maddow would try and paint Trump with the same brush as his one-time employee.
But that’s what Maddow attempted to do on her show.
Maddow said, “In what is an astonishingly scandal-ridden presidency, populated by an astonishingly strange cast of characters, he remains one of the most unsettling figures in all of Trump world.”
“Again, to be clear, to disambiguate here, we are not talking about Jeffrey Epstein, seen here with the President, who is also now in custody awaiting child sex trafficking charges.”
She continued, “No, this is a whole different guy who you can see in this picture with the president who is now in federal custody awaiting a different set of sex trafficking charges as well as serious child porn charges and not for the first time.”
It’s obviously horrible to think that someone who worked with Trump could be guilty of such awful behavior.
But, it’s not surprising, and it isn’t Trump’s fault either.
Bad people show up everywhere.
And just because someone worked for Trump, doesn’t mean their actions reflect what Trump supports.
In fact, since taking office, Trump has done more to help sex-trafficking victims than the world even knows.
So far he has signed the following four laws into place to reduce sex trafficking and tighten the penalties imposed on traffickers:
- Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (S.1862) which tightens the criteria for whether countries are meeting standards for eliminating trafficking.
- Abolish Human Trafficking Act in December, which strengthens programs supporting survivors and resources for combating modern slavery.
- The Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act, authorizing $430 million to fight sex and labor trafficking.
- Trafficking Victims Protection Act (S.1312), establishing new prevention, prosecution, and collaboration initiative to bring human traffickers to justice.
For Maddow to try and tie Nader to Trump shows just how far she’s willing to go for a story.
If Trump is a sexual abuser, why would he create new laws that are even tougher on criminals?
Well, he wouldn’t.
Maddow is so desperate to see Trump undone that she’ll invent any story in the hopes it’ll bring him down.
