After Donald Trump left Walter Reed Medical Center after recovering from the coronavirus, he flew on Marine One back to the White House.
It was a made-for-TV moment that Americans were tuned in to.
And then Rachel Maddow saw Trump at the White House and this is what she said.
After Marine One landed at the White House, Donald Trump marched up on to the porch at the White House and gave a thumbs up and saluted the members of the military.
Rachel Maddow showed the video of President Trump standing on the White House porch and mocked the President by baselessly claiming the President could not breathe and was still unwell.
“President Trump returned to the White House tonight after three nights spent in the hospital at Walter Reed. He staged a kind of performative return that may have tried to be a sort of triumphant ‘I beat the virus’ thing with Marine One landing right next to the White House. The president then tromping up the stairs into the White House. This may have tried to be a sort of triumphant return impression, but the real impression it created was something almost opposite to that. I mean the president walking up the stairs to the South Portico, but then turning out to face the cameras while he was- could be plainly seen really gasping for air, huffing and puffing, mouth breathing, and trying to pull in air while his chest sort of rose and fell with difficulty, looking out at the cameras.”
Maddow made sure her audience took away the idea that President Trump is on the verge of death by claiming without citing any evidence that Donald Trump was sick.
“If the idea was to show that he’s all better, you know, he’s got his hair done again, he’s got his makeup on again, he’s himself, that was undercut seriously by the sort of unnerving spectacle of the president really, visibly appearing to struggle for breath,” Maddow added.
President Trump’s doctors discharged him from the hospital.
But conspiracy theories about Donald Trump are not new territory for Rachel Maddow.
From 2017 to 2019, Maddow turned her show into the occasional top-rated cable news program by wildly promoting even the most lunatic conspiracy theory about the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians.
That came back to bite Rachel Maddow and MSNBC when the Mueller witch hunt found no evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
Hundreds of thousands of viewers immediately stopped watching Maddow’s program after they realized Maddow had been lying to them for years.
