MSNBC Talk Show host Rachel Madow made a comeback of sorts, out of her retirement to interview the twice-failed Democrat President candidate- Hillary R. Clinton, about the Ukraine situation- on Monday night.
“Days after announcing a two month hiatus from MSNBC, Rachel Maddow rushed back to the studio to perform neocon propaganda with the Queen of Warmongers, who called to inflict “economic pain” on “the Russian people,” Max Blumenthal, editor of the Grey Zone News reported on Twitter.
“Speaking with @maddowtonight,@HillaryClinton calls for theUS to help impose “economic pain on Putin, and, sadly, the Russian people” in response to Ukraine conflict She is calling for collective punishment, a violation of Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention,” one journalist responded.
MSNBC-leftist framed the Clinton interview as something a little different, reporting:
“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praises the Biden administration for helping to bring NATO and other Western nations together in a unified front against Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.”
“Clinton hails global unity against Putin’s threat to democracy,” Maddow reported.
You knew, you always knew! Everything….

The lapdog mainstream media was in overdrive to promote Clinton, who lost in a humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump, in 2016 and has still never accepted it.
The Atlantic allowed the scandalous Clinton to guest write an attempted smackdown of Trump, over Putin- resurrecting her fake news stories about the Republicans and Russsia! Russia! Russia!
Clinton used the opportunity of interest in Ukraine, to push her fantasy utopian ideas of ‘democracy’ again, in a recent tweet-that had a link to her propaganda:
“This is not just another political dispute; it’s a five-alarm national-security crisis. The hard truth is that if Republicans won’t stand up to Trump, they can’t stand up to Putin or Xi,” Clinton wrote.
We need a strong democracy in the US to win the global fight against autocracy.
And the hard truth is that if Republicans won’t stand up to Trump, they can’t stand up to Putin or Xi.

WHY DID MADDOW COME BACK?
Just days prior to last night’s interview- Maddow announced she was taking off. as reported by The AP:
NEW YORK (AP) — Rachel Maddow, MSNBC’s most popular personality, said Monday she will be taking a hiatus from her prime time show until April to work on a new podcast and that a movie is being made of her first book and podcast about former Vice President Spiro Agnew.
“Change is good,” she said on her show. “Change is absolutely terrifying, but in this case it’s good.”
She said she’s going to help out with the movie of “Bag Man” on former President Richard Nixon’s disgraced vice president, to be directed by Ben Stiller and produced by “Saturday Night Live” executive producer Lorne Michaels.
Maddow gave no details on her second podcast, being made for NBC Universal.
“I am super-excited to tell you about it when I have more to tell,” said Maddow, who hosted her show from her home on Monday because she had been exposed to someone who had tested positive and shown symptoms of COVID-19.
Although she’ll be off from her regular show starting on Friday, she’s expected to appear during MSNBC’s coverage of some major events, like President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. Ali Velshi, her most frequent substitute host, and other MSNBC personalities are expected to fill in on the regular evening telecast.
Maddow’s absence could be a glimpse into MSNBC’s future. It has been widely reported that Maddow will step back from hosting her program every night as part of a new contract with the network, although MSNBC has never commented on that. Maddow hinted at it Monday by saying there will be “more hiatuses in the future.”
Losing her on a regular basis could be a challenge for the network, which has seen its viewership slip from the highs of the 2020 presidential election campaign and its aftermath
Of interest, most from the left was Hillary Clinton’s expert opinion about the mental state of Putin. We can’t make this up:
