Joe would start a segment praising him and would say his name 10 times in just over a minute. He knows very well the effect of repetition. It's like the networks focusing a shot of the plane or an empty podium with the name and the flags to keep on in the background behind the talking heads during an entire 6 minute segment. They knew full well what they were doing, why and the impact it was having. There was never a more glaring display of how sexist this country is because you couldn't find anything similar for their treatment when talking about Hillary. The only things they did constantly keep in the public framing for her and any mention of her name were Benghazi and e-mails. Both of which were as empty as can be from the beginning.

The difference in framing, pushed over the edge in impact by Comey, could not have been more glaring. They knew it even to the extent of downplaying the well known issues of the Orange Ruski and his known history of racism, crooked business deals and being cozy with questionable crime figures.
