Greta Van Susteren joins the team!

FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2017

Rachel sells you the car:
Last night, Rachel Maddow made it official. Greta Van Susteren is coming over to join the MSNBC team.

Full disclosure—we know Greta the very tiniest tad. We've done several shows with her in the past. We'd call her a very nice person.

We've also puzzled, many times, over her performances for Fox. She left the network a few months ago after fourteen years of service.

With respect to her move to MSNBC, it's a tale of two reactions. Two days ago, when the move was being rumored, John Whitehouse offered these thoughts at Media Matters:
WHITEHOUSE (1/4/17): Van Susteren has given Trump a welcoming platform for years. Before the Republican primary, Trump appeared more times on Van Susteren’s On The Record than on the rest of the Fox News prime-time shows combined. During the Republican primary, Van Susteren had Trump on for over five hours, dwarfing other candidates. During these appearances, Trump pushed birtherism, claimed Obama didn’t write his own memoir, and made bigoted remarks about refugees...

To be fair, On The Record was not the worst on Fox News, and Van Susteren may well have been playing to the conservative audience. But the absolute worst Trump hagiographic moment during his campaign came during her “documentary” interview with his campaign...

Onlookers harshly criticized the special, with MSNBC host—and potential future colleague—Chris Hayes declaring that it was reminiscent of state media under a dictator. Hayes tweet: "A glimpse of what state media will look like after Glorious Leader Trump is victorious."

As of now, Van Susteren’s hiring is still a rumor and may not come to pass. But either way, a likely factor in MSNBC’s desire to add her to its lineup is her established track record of getting access to Trump, which she certainly didn’t accomplish because she subjected him to tough interviews.
We can't vouch for every word. We'd be surprised if Van Susteren was hired to lure Trump to MSNBC.

That said, if you click to the Whitehouse report, you can look at tape of Van Susteren with Trump. To see a millionaire cable news host getting pistol-whipped by someone who's nuts, check the footage at this post under the headline, "Trump Suggested Obama's Long-Form Birth Certificate Was Forged."

Whitehouse offered one reaction to Van Susteren's possible hiring. Last night, Maddow took a different approach.

She gushed and fawned and sold us the car in record-breaking manner. She polished Greta up one side, then buffed her down the other.

We'd post the text of what she said but MSNBC is slow posting its transcripts today, including on Nexis. On this official network site, it hasn't posted Maddow transcripts since December 14. Whatever!

Later today or tomorrow, we'll post what Maddow said. In the meantime, to watch an all-star selling a car, you can just click here.

Fair warning: If you click that link, you'll encounter this headline at Maddow's site:

Rachel Maddow: "Greta is great!"

People, we're just saying.

  1. LOL, but Obama didn't write his memoir, and his birth certificate was forged.

    1. Hello,
      I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
      to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
      because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
      wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
      the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
      especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
      dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
      When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
      relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wants me to be
      happy. But obviously what would make me happy would be to have him all to
      myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
      saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
      were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
      right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
      we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
      on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
      better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
      relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
      went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
      took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
      disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
      running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
      my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
      to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
      thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
      alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
      Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
      that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
      love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
      now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
      month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
      between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
      have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
      my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
      my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
      in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
      and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his
      website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him
      direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you
      Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
      social media or place i may go to.

  4. I have a perfect record: never once viewed her at FOX. Now I have another reason not to watch MSNBC i.e FOX lite.

  5. Why didn't Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren sign the petitions challenging the certification of the electoral college results yesterday? They needed a senator to sign and make them official and NOT ONE SENATOR would add his or her name. Why not?

    1. Perhaps they realize it's infantile and it would affect nothing.

      Delete
    2. If it would affect nothing, it is at least a symbolic gesture. Why wouldn't they do it anyway? Why would they need to pander to Trump?

      Delete
    3. The people we elect to Congress have real power. People like us commenters have no power. Symbolic actiona are all we can do. But, it's undignified and ineffective for a member of Congress to interfere with the orderly conduct of their body.

    4. DinC,
      Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
      Did you really forget about the 11 months with an open seat on the Supreme Court?
      I don't like your stupidity, but I like that you want everyone to know about it.

  6. I was startled when I read this post; do you honestly mean people actually watch the Mostly S**t Nothing But Crap network?? (h/t thedeplorablelantern). That's unpossible!!!

  8. Hi My name is marry madalene,am from upper island cove , Canada.. I want to use this opportunity to thank God for using this Great prophet to
    solve my marriage problem. This Great Prophet of God brought my husband back to me. 3 years ago, i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one
    lady. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. I tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains
    that was tormenting my heart. My heart was filled with sorrows and pains, because i was really in love with my husband. Every
    day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me. Until one day i melt a good friend of mine that was once in my situation, but her problem was different
    a little bite, her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for refused to take responsibility and dumped her. She told me that mine issue was a minor case
    and that i shouldn't worry about it at all.So, i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this Great Prophet of God phone number and
    his email address. I was doubting if this Great Prophet of God could actually solve my problem. So, I contacted this Great Prophet of God and he told me what to do and i did it.
    He told me to wait for just four days and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness. So, I faithfully did what
    this Great Prophet of God asked me to do and for sure after four days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless,
    when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness,from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away, since
    then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy. That why i want to say a big thank you to God for using Prophet ikehedu .to solve my marriage problem. This
    Great Prophet of God made me to understand that theirs no problem on earth that does not have solution.So, if you are having same problem, any problem that is
    similar, i will advise you to contact This Great Prophet of God straight at prophetikehedu@gmail.com And his facebook contact is this ( https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100014772066529.)
