Entire Rachel Maddow Interview with Liz Cheney from last night - Rachel Maddow - MSNBC



Last night I posted all eight segments of this interview which were not necessarily available in order, this is the complete interview as it was shown on MSNBC. Aired on 12/04/2023.

13. Thank you! It's well worth seeing the entire interview (in order). Rachel - and Liz Cheney - addressed quite a bit!

Everyone I encounter at this point. This conversation and the one with Chris Hayes from last month are must watch for everyone.

What I really appreciate is that they identify the problem and offer solution options.

16. I appreciate that as well, plus it's obvious that both Rachel and Chris have done their homework

Judging by the questions they ask. Last night before the interview, Rachel quoted and commented on portions of the book. And she certainly kept up with Liz Cheney who was a Republican insider - until she was confronted with TFG who wanted to overthrow the government and learned that her fellow Republican members of Congress were supporting his seditious efforts.

And it is pretty cool that Rachel and Chris are touring together - caught part of their presentation when it was shown over the holiday - it's just too bad that they're scheduled nowhere near me.

I am glad there is more then one of these conversation events. People need to hear this. If they came to any of the western cities in Montana, it would be a really good thing.


I'm also curious about how/what these two women disagree on when it comes to fishing!

This was a pretty important interview and it was confusing when Rachel's introduction was uploaded next to last. This video remedies that.

Liz Cheney has been making the rounds in advance of her book coming out, but Rachel Maddow read it ahead of time and we know she asks the best questions - and the answers were pretty eye-opening from a former Republican insider - and Liz Cheney was the show.

9. You're certainly welcome, I know posting the eight segments out of order was confusing

So this is all of them, in order, and Liz Cheney was last night's entire show.

7. I thought of this quote; which I read earlier today, with Rachel's last question to Cheney and her answer as to why.

The nation and world have suffered much from *rump, perhaps we will find great meaning.

Thanks for the thread Rhiannon

It's certainly painful to keep getting hit with rotten news day after day - and it's gone on for so long!

8. I wish Liz Cheney wasn't mulling a third party/independent run for 2024.

If her motivation is to save democracy, she wouldn't be running 3rd party, especially since she has ZERO chance of winning. She would just be a spoiler candidate who could only help Trump get elected by diverting anti-Trump Republicans' votes away from Biden to her.

11. I agree, it really makes no sense - and her interview was savvy enough to speak otherwise

If her motivation is to prevent TFG from running, there are so many more helpful actions that she could take - and speaking out and publishing her book was a good start.

18. By making the statement, she gets attention, which gets the threat noticed.

I'm inclined to believe she is sincere in wanting to make sure that the thing never gets near the Oval Office again. She's politically savvy enough to know how 3rd party candidates affect elections. With those two assumptions, what could be her motivation for announcing she's considering a 3rd party run?

The only thing that comes to my mind is that such a statement gets the press sniffing around and thereby gets the attention of people who might otherwise only be looking at traitortrump news. It puts her in the news and puts her warnings in the news.
