Rachel Maddow Blames Bad Weather for Ossoff Loss [VIDEO]

Desperately searching for excuses for Democrat Jon Ossoff’s devasting loss to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s special election on Tuesday, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow blamed the weather for the loss.

Before the race was officially declared a win for Handel, but as numbers were looking grim for Ossoff, who had a massive fundraising advantage thanks to out-of-state elitists bankrolling his campaign, Maddow reached out to MSNBC correspondent Steve Kornacki to confirm the false narrative that rainy weather contributed to low turnout for Democrats.

“If there was a turnout effect from the bad weather today in the district, does that have any partisan implications that you can foresee in terms of what was expected for same-day, election-day voting here, rather than the early vote?” Maddow asked Kornacki earnestly.

Kornacki, not wanting to contradict the leading MSNBC host, indicated that there was “anecdotal” that weather may have played a role in lower than expected turnout in some Democrat areas.

Is Rachel Maddow inadvertently saying that Republicans vote in the rain but Democrats are too lazy to? That almost sounds racist.
