On a recent episode of “Late Night” on NBC, host Seth Meyers asked left-wing MSNBC host Rachel Maddow if there are any reasons for liberals to be optimistic about President-elect Donald Trump’s upcoming presidency.
Hesitating briefly, Maddow replied, “I have bright red shoes, which is very festive. … I have a family I love and nice dogs.”
When Meyers asked if liberals can “galvanize” the enthusiasm behind Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign and Hillary Clinton’s victory in the popular vote moving forward, she replied affirmatively, adding that sometimes in politics one is “blessed” with “enemies who are cartoonishly evil.”
Maddow noted that for liberals and others who oppose Trump “life just got different.”
“You’ve got a different fight of your life than you thought you were going to have,” Maddow said. “You’re going to have to do different work than you thought you were going to do. And whatever this administration is going to cook up is going to pose all sorts of fascinating challenges we were not expecting, and working on that stuff is going to be unifying.”
Maddow said Trump will govern from “out-there place” which will be “interesting” for the “resistance.”
