Rachel Maddow wept on-air when trying to read about babies in detention centers


America is a horror show. We had the anecdotal stories before now. Mothers have been telling journalists for the past week that ICE agents and border patrol agents literally stole their babies. Mothers were nursing their babies, holding onto their small children, and those babies were ripped from their arms. We’ve seen the images of children being kept in cages at these detention centers too, but there haven’t been any images of the actual stolen babies (nor can anyone confirm where all the stolen little girls are). Now we know, because the Associated Press broke the news last night: the babies and young toddlers are being sent to “tender age shelters” in South Texas. Shelters as in plural – there are multiple tender age shelters filled with stolen, traumatized babies and toddlers. The news broke at the end of Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show. This is what happened:

Maddow is a professional broadcaster, used to breaking news and emotional stories about traumatic events, but the AP report broadsided her and she couldn’t handle it. She’s human. She later apologized on Twitter for crying on air and added information about the stolen babies being caged in detention centers away from their parents.

America is a horror show.

A few hours before Maddow went on the air, Fox News was doing a segment about the children being kept in cages by the American government. One guest was trying to describe the report, which came out yesterday, of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who has been forcibly separated from her parents. A story of a traumatized little girl with Down syndrome was hilarious to Corey Lewandowski, a former Trump employee and current Fox News talking head. He greeted the story with a “womp womp.”

America is a horror show.
