Maddow Asks If Trump Will Send Her ‘to a Camp’
Rachel Maddow jokingly compared Donald Trump to Hitler while she was a guest on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.”
The Hill reports:
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow joked Wednesday that if President-elect Donald Trump were to appear on her show, her first question would be whether he planned to send her “to a camp.”
Maddow — host of “The Rachel Maddow Show,” MSNBC’s highest-rated program — was a guest on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.”
“If you booked Donald Trump on your show, what would your first question be?” Cohen asked Maddow, reading a viewer question.
After a pause, Maddow deadpanned: “Are you going to send me or anybody that I know to a camp?”
An amused Cohen quickly changed the topic and moved on.
Maddow has been consistently outspoken against Trump since he launched his presidential campaign.
In July, Maddow shared that she had been prepping for a possible Trump presidency by studying the first few months of Adolf Hitler’s tenure as German chancellor, beginning in 1934.
“Over the past year I’ve been reading a lot about what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor. I am gravitating toward moments in history for subliminal reference in terms of cultures that have unexpectedly veered into dark places, because I think that’s possibly where we are,” she told Rolling Stone magazine.
