‘We’re Laughing at You’: Maddow Slams GOPers Who Skipped Bergdahl Briefings to Do TV Hits
Mediaite ^ | June 8, 2014 | Andrew Kirell

On Friday evening, Rachel Maddow tore into several Republican lawmakers who skipped private briefings on the Bowe Bergdahl swap to hold press conferences or make TV appearances lamenting the lack of information on the administration’s actions.

Maddow noted that on Wednesday, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) left a private Senate briefing on Bergdahl early to hold a press conference demanding more information. “I learned nothing in this briefing,” he told reporters.

Is there any truth to this? Did McCain really leave the briefing early to hold a presser? I really don't care for McCain, and I know how much he likes the camera.

However, I don't trust Maddow. She's just another cheerleader for the Democrats.

I have read at the time that many left because there was no new information disseminated.

Maybe the Republicans were too busy listening to the guys who were actually there rather than some politician who was thousands of miles away.

This administration is not going to release any negative information on the Bergdahl situation.

I wonder if she’ll be laughing after the released terrorists launch another attack on our soldiers or citizens??

It's been on a couple of news sites. McCain and Chambliss left early. Rand Paul didn't show up at all.

The laughter of a gender confused moron bears no sting at all.

And Obama did a Rose Garden Meet the Bergdahl’s skit instead of notifying congress. Pathetic.

Oh fer cyin out loud....

Maddow is a continuously offended lezzie who will never have a cogent thought.

And she’s complaining about a idiot who happens to be a republican. (which is the only reason she is complaining)

When I see a headline with the name Jon McCain in it or any of his familial members...I click another page and it’s good advice to avoid masochistic tendencies and stay off the MSNBC channel or do like I did and get rid of network TV entirely.

Just cut the cable....
