On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow perfectly summed up where American politics is today, with Donald Trump occupying the Oval Office. She explained how unbelievable it is that just a year ago, America went from having President Barrack Obama, a responsible adult in the White House, to temperamental man-baby like Trump.
In the video, Maddow sums up what every American with a brain is thinking today.
“You know, a year ago, Barack Obama was the president. The prospect of there being an opening to a newscast like the one I just did, you’d check yourself into a doctor. But this is our life now. This is our nightly news now about the American presidency.”

The catalyst for Maddow’s somber observation was Trump’s “highly anticipated fake news awards,” which like most things done by this administration was sloppily executed and represented a new low in American politics. She was also making reference to the story that Trump had “allegedly” carried on an affair with a porn actress shortly after his wife Melania gave birth to their youngest son Barron. Trump reportedly paid the actress, Stormy Daniels, $130,000 to stay quiet during the presidential campaign.
Welcome to the new normal.
