MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Says Trump Has ‘Failed in Every Conceivable Way’

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow claimed on Thursday that President Trump's first month in office has been a complete failure.

Maddow began her attack after playing a clip of Trump's press conference earlier in the day at the White House, during which he argued his administration is running "like a fine-tuned machine."

"The personnel debacles and the serious scandals that already attend to this less than one-month-old presidency are really, without hyperbole, they are unlike anything we have ever seen at the start of a presidential term," she said.

Maddow then turned her focus to Trump's policies, saying, "And that's completely leaving aside the issue of policy. There has been no significant legislation passed since this president has been in office."

Trump had signed earlier on Thursday a bill that lawmakers used the Congressional Review Act to pass. The measure will roll back select Obama administration coal regulations, according to CNN.

After a lengthy diatribe against the president's travel ban, Maddow wrapped up with a final point of attack.

"Nobody wants to see the United States of America fail. But if you want to know what it looks like when a president fails in every conceivable way, in every conceivable measure," she said. "This is what it looks like when a president fails in every way."
