Did anyone else see this "love-fest"?? BTW, when Q about the staff abuse allegations, she again didn't deny the story specifics but repeated that lame "I work my staff hard, I have high expectations..." line. While not surprised that obviously worshipful Maddow didn't press her on specific behavior reports (throwing things, screaming at people until they cried, angry reprimands in the middle of the night), I am getting pretty sick and tired of hearing this 2-faced "Queen of MN Mean" trying to glibly equate "high work standards" with an abusive, hostile work environment and valid criticism of her toxic personality as "sexism". No remorse or shame. No apology. And, no self-awareness. I truly hope someone who worked for her was savvy enough to videotape/audiotape one of her Trumpian "rages".

As much as I despite Trump's toxic personality and temper, at least he is transparent, doesn't try to hide it or pretend to be anything else but an obnoxious nitwit. People knew EXACTLY what they were getting with him well in advance.

IMO, deliberately trying to fool the public, voters with a phony, "Aw shucks", saccharine, folksy demeanor is WORSE. In essence, you are just lying to people about the very core of who you really are. Makes one wonder, "What else is she hiding/lying about?"

Maddow didn't grill her fellow Democrat? That's like expecting Hannity to grill Trump

I guess "funny" is relative (in the eye of the beholder). I thought it was hilarious watching that clearly fake "Aw shucks..." Amy grin fa├žade crack just a little in response to a softball, general Q about staff "mistreatment". Also, funny watching Rachel--obviously in the throws of a blushing lesbian crush over her fantasy GF, Amy--let her skate away with a lame, evasive response.

Really? He calls himself a genius, a stable genius. He portrays himself as a master negotiator. He talks about all these deals he is making that will never come to pass. He claims he is building a wall and Mexico is paying for it. It may be transparent that he is on obnoxious nitwit to, say, 60% of the population, but he successfully portrays himself as something completely different to the very gullible 40$ or so.
