examined the two chilling paths that ex-President Donald Trump
's "election fraud
fantasy" is currently leading the GOP
One focuses on Republican
state-by-state voting rights
The other factor is Trump supporters
' irrational belief that he will be re-elected president this summer.
Maddow reflected on the next steps for Trump supporters who “truly, earnestly believe this nonsense” that Trump is the legitimate president.
She asked if they will answer his call to fight for him, as they did in the January 6
storming of the US Capitol
“What do we expect them to do? What would they not do?” Maddow continued. “When a major political party
starts indulging in this kind of stuff, it doesn’t end up in anything that resembles politics
“That is a road that leads to a very bad place, and we are already down that road,” Maddow said, adding, “I'm not trying to scare you, but I find the situation we're in scary.”
