It’s been another bad week for Donald Trump, and it’s only Tuesday.
With the January 6th House Select Committee’s latest hearing, Trump is now scrambling to undo the damage from former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s bombshell testimony which shed light on his increasingly erratic behavior on January 6th which culminated in him physically attacking a member of his own Secret Service detail. As the fallout continues, there’s one underlying question: will Trump ever face any consequences?
On Monday night, as the reasons for the emergency hearing were eluding her to the point of near madness, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow used the moment to look ahead to Trump’s hopes to still be the candidate in 2024 and return to the White House. Considering he has amassed an impressive list of investigations and lawsuits and now potential indictments against him, how could he possibly be free to run again? And who would the GOP send up to the show in his place?
Maddow runs through the investigations in New York, where Trump is still slated to testify next month, and Georgia, where the Fulton Country District Attorney could very well be drafting federal charges against both Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for their role in trying to overthrow the state’s presidential election results.
Personally, I think anyone running in Trump’s place in 2024 is going to be just as terrible, but a different kind of terrible in their own way, which seems to be the collective level of acceptance.

Don’t miss Maddow’s full glee Tuesday evening during the January 6th Committee Hearing breakdown, I’m sure she won’t be able to contain herself at all.
