MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has full-blown Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Her show has become a haven for insane theories as to why the Democrats are losing.
And Maddow humiliated herself with her dumbest conspiracy yet.
Rachel Maddow’s ratings have been directly tied to the level of absurdity of her conspiracy theories.
Her MSNBC show got solid ratings when she ranted and raved for years about Donald Trump being a Russian spy.
But when the Mueller report came out and nixed that bogus theory, Maddow’s ratings tanked.
Maddow saw a random spike when she had on disgraced Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas to spin a web of lies about Trump’s involvement in Ukraine.
Maddow and her big media allies are the first ones to label right-wingers as conspiracy nuts who need to be censored on social media.
But when Maddow suggests Vladimir Putin might shut down the U.S. power grid or that Trump is a Russian asset like something from “The Manchurian Candidate,” that’s just hard-hitting news.
Maddow was up to her old tricks again when she tried to blame the Democrats’ Iowa Caucus debacle on internet trolls:
Maddow was in top form tonight.
She claimed that a few 4 chan posts urging ppl to “clog up” the Iowa Democratic Party phone lines messed with “Democrats’ ability to carry out the caucus.”
Firstly, the caucus was over, and Dems had to call in because their other tech failed… pic.twitter.com/VzvP8kr54b

Maddow’s idiotic conspiracy theory is nothing more than a diversion.
She doesn’t want you to pay attention to the incompetence of the Democrats.
These same Democrats want to run healthcare, but can’t even get an app to work in one state with months of time to prepare for a rollout.
This mirrors the catastrophe that was the Obamacare rollout.
Maddow hopes that if her audience hears “internet trolls,” they will immediately think that some nefarious outsiders were responsible.
But that didn’t fly with other anchors on MSNBC.
Even the Democrat candidates themselves have remarked on how horrendous the Iowa Caucus was.
This is just the latest in Maddow’s blunders.
In an embarrassing moment that rivaled Geraldo Rivera’s overhyping of the contents in Al Capone’s vault, Maddow teased she had Trump’s tax returns.
Capone’s vault was largely empty, and Trump’s taxes showed he paid a sizable amount and gave a lot to charity; Democrat candidates have been notoriously stingy when it comes to charitable givings.
Maddow almost shed a tear on the air when Robert Mueller’s report showed no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Now Maddow is focusing on internet trolls.
The Democrats will be in for a rude awakening if they think they can pawn off their failures on internet trolls.
The American people are experiencing gains in the stock market, record-low employment, real wage growth, and no new foreign wars.
Zeroing in on internet trolls is a sure path to defeat in November.
