MSNBC host’ Rachel Maddow appeared Wednesday on “Late Night,” where she and host Seth Meyers discussed the real estate tycoon and reality TV star’s appeal to GOP voters.
“I will say this, Trump’s a very good communicator,” Meyers said. “I always know exactly what he’s thinking. I’m not like, I wish he hadn’t used such big words — like huge.”
Maddow said she had been able to dismiss Trump’s previous flirtations with running from office, but she said he was impossible to ignore in this campaign.
“He’s really running, and Republicans really like him,” she said. “I love the idea that this is a stunt and I love the idea that he’s just a celebrity and this isn’t actually a political campaign, but it turns out Republican voters want Donald Trump more than they want any of the other 40 people running. That is a gift from God, in terms of this being my job.”
