According to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, if former President Donald Trump gets re-elected, he would put the news station on trial and “execute us.”
“He wants to put MSNBC on trial for treason so that he can execute us,” Maddow said on “The View.”
She made this statement in response to co-host Sara Haines’ comment that Trump “wants to cancel the news, so they’re done.”
In September, Trump announced on Truth Social that if he is elected president again, he would investigate Comcast, the parent company of NBC News and MSNBC, for their “Country Threatening Treason.”
“They are almost all dishonest and corrupt, but Comcast, with its one-side and vicious coverage by NBC News, and in particular MSNBC, often and correctly referred to as MSDNC (Democrat National Committee!), should be investigated for its ‘Country Threatening Treason,'” Trump wrote.
Trump is known for bashing the news media and often refers to any news outlet or story he disagrees with as “fake news.”
Maddow believes that Trump is presenting a future for America in which there won’t be another election because he talks about how “the elections are all rigged, that the democratic process can’t be trusted.”
It is important to note that Trump is currently the leading Republican candidate for the 2024 election and polls show him neck and neck with President Biden in a theoretical general election matchup.
