When the basket that held all of the hopes and dreams eggs placed there by Democrats, their followers and operatives was upended over the weekend, a number of the loudest voices for ridding the political landscape of one President Donald Trump didn’t silence themselves.
No, they doubled down, got angry, all but went on crying jags live on the air, and much more.

Executive privilege is not a defense in the crimes that the Mueller investigation did not find? Since there were no crimes, executive privilege does not need to be invoked.
What planet is this guy living on?
Don’t answer that.
And then there was the woman who has been actively encouraging uncivil behavior toward Republicans in their private lives. Rep. Maxine Waters of California, she who chairs some committee that gives her an inflated opinion of her own importance, appeared on MSNBC with Joy Reid and voiced her opinion that the report doesn’t matter. This is not over.
For maximum impact, please read those words:
“Absolutely. Well, I wanted to tell you that this president has a way of trying to get into people’s heads and indoctrinate them,” said Waters. “He’s been saying ‘No collusion, no collusion, no collusion,’ over and over again for a long time now and he’s going to try to conclude that this report is proving that there’s no collusion. And you have a lot of his sycophants who will, you know, take the nod from him and they’ll say the same thing.”
In other words, President Trump has brainwashed all of us. Sure, Max, sure.
But the best, and it is hard not to watch and enjoy this, came from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow who took time off from trout fishing to bring us her amazingly long-winded take:
And this was before the contents of the report were made public. Maddow and just about everyone else in the swamp knew darn well and good what was in that report: a battlefield victory for the Trump Administration.
