Rachel Maddow Slays J.D. Hayworth on National Television!!!

It’s strange how I found this clip last night.
I was at the gym on the treadmill and saw this entire segment in CLOSED CAPTIONS only. My mouth dropped because Rachel Maddow did one of the strongest follow-ups to one of her own stories I’ve ever seen. This clip is in response to Hayworth’s appearance on her show Monday night to discuss a range of issues.
Rachel showed that she and her team are excellent researchers and I take my hat off to them for that!! Facts are facts. She just LET THE RECORD SHOW!
Here are two of my favorite quotes from last night:
“Actually, my researchers did a great job. And, I am one of my researchers.” This was in response to Hayworth’s claim that Maddow’s researchers didn’t get the facts straight about money he took from convicted criminal Jack Abramoff.
“[The ruling] is empirical. We don’t have a disagreement on it. He’s just wrong.” This was in response to Hayworth’s claim that the state’s ruling allows marriage to be defined as the establishment of intimacy. It doesn’t.
