During Friday night’s edition of “The Rachel Maddow Show,” host Rachel Maddow stopped her usual programming to speak directly to her audience about General Michael Flynn. Earlier in the week General Flynn was reportedly tapped by the administration of President-elect Donald Trump to be the new National Security Advisor. Maddow thinks this was a very disturbing pick.
“At this point in the show, I had something else we were going to cover, by scrapped it, because there’s a thing I feel like I need to say about the Mike Flynn security announcement,” Maddow told viewers.
“The choice of Mike Flynn is a different kettle of fish than anything we might have expected from the Trump campaign. Mike Flynn calls Islam a political ideology hiding behind a religion. He calls Islam a malignant cancer. He really did sit next to President Putin and take money to go to a gala. He’s been a frequent guest on Russian state television and says he sees no difference between Russian state television, and for example, MSNBC.”
