MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow Says She's Worried Trump Will Send Her To 'Camps' If He Wins Election

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow told CNN on Monday that she's worried that presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump would put her in "camps" if he successfully regained the White House in November. Maddow, who became popular after pushing the Russia collusion conspiracy theory during the Trump administration, has been an avid critic of the 45th president.

The Democrat commentator explained that she is "worried about the country broadly if we put someone in power who is openly avowing that he plans to build camps to hold millions of people, and to 'root out' what he's described in subhuman terms as his 'enemy from within,'" Maddow said. "Again, history is helpful here. He's not joking when he says this stuff, and we've seen what happens when people take power proclaiming that kind of agenda. I think there's a little bit of head-in-the-sand complacency that Trump only intends to go after individual people he has already singled out. Do you really think he plans to stop at well-known liberals?"

"For that matter, what convinces you that these massive camps he's planning are only for migrants? So, yes, I'm worried about me, but only as much as I'm worried about all of us," she told the outlet.

Maddow isn't the only Democrat attempting to fearmonger about a potential second Trump term. As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, Rep. Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez (D-NY) said on a recent podcast episode of 'On with Kara Swisher' that she is also concerned about Trump throwing her in jail. "I mean, it sounds nuts, but I wouldn't be surprised if this guy threw me in jail," The New York progressive said. "He's out of his mind. I mean, he did his whole first campaign around 'lock her up.' This is his motto."

"I take him at his word when he says that he's going to round up people," she said. "I take him at his word when he threatens journalists. I take him at his word. I feel like what we saw in his first presidency was an amuse-bouche to what his intentions are. He has learned from his mistakes of appointing professionals, and he will not make that mistake next time."

While Trump has issued multiple statements on Truth Social demanding that members of the January 6 Committee be indicted, he has denied that his presidency will be defined by retribution against those who have wronged him. In a recent Fox News interview with Sean Hannity, Trump said that he's focused on saving the country.

"Number one, they're wrong," Trump said. "It has to stop because otherwise, we're not going to have a country. Look, when this election is over, based on what they've done, I would have every right to go after them, and it's easy because it's Joe Biden, and you see all the criminality, all of the money that's going into the family and him, all of this money from China, from Russia, from Ukraine."

Rachel Maddow and anyone who listens to her or any other MSNBC host are in dire need of psychiatric help.
