It’s a likely battle that Rachel Maddow has some thoughts on, including one preceded by the ominous words: “Liberals are going to freak out when I say this.”
The MSNBC host was a guest on Thursday’s edition of Late Night with Seth Meyers, a late-night television program that’s been doing a bang-up job this election season.
