Rachel Maddow, a prominent figure in the corporate media, experienced a breakdown when President Donald Trump achieved a historic victory in the Iowa Republican caucuses on Monday night.

Trump convincingly defeated his “rivals,” with a lead of approximately 30 points over the runner-up, Governor Ron DeSantis, as previously reported. The Associated Press declared Trump the winner just 31 minutes after the caucusing began at 7 p.m.

This declaration came while many polling sites were still open, causing frustration among campaign officials and numerous Republicans. It took almost three hours longer to determine that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis secured second place. Iowans delivered Trump the most resounding victory by a presidential candidate in the 48-year history of the Republican caucuses.

While this remarkable triumph brought a smile to Trump’s face, it triggered a frenzy among left-leaning commentators at MSNBC. Their reaction mirrored the response to Trump’s victory in November 2016. Throughout Trump’s presidency, Maddow consistently promoted the false narrative of Russian collusion.

Since Trump announced his bid for reelection, Maddow has been fearmongering about the rise of fascism and authoritarianism. On Monday night, Maddow, in particular, seemed to struggle with comprehending Trump’s unprecedented success. During the coverage of the Iowa Caucus on MSNBC, Maddow refused to broadcast the victory speech of the Republican front-runner.

After refusing to air Trump’s speech, Maddow went on to claim that “there is a cost to us, as a news organization, of knowingly broadcasting untrue things.”

“I just have to get to business just for a second,” said Maddow.

“At this point in the evening the projected winner of the Iowa caucuses has just started giving his victory speech,” she continued, apparently loath to speak Trump’s name at the outset.

“We will keep an eye on that as it happens. We will let you know if there is any news made in that speech, anything noteworthy, something substantive and important.”

“It’s not out of spite,” Maddow added.

“It is not a decision that we relish.

“It is a decision that we regularly revisit, and, honestly, earnestly, it is not an easy decision.”
