Rachel Maddow recently castigated Trump family members and former Trump administration officials for their willingness to speak at an upcoming event alongside virulent antisemites.

The out MSNBC anchor explained that appearing at the same event with people who believe “Hitler was fighting the good fight” will be former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, former Trade Director Peter Navarro, former chief of staff to Acting Defense Secretary Kash Patel, and former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who was chair of the House Intelligence Committee.

Maddow mentioned that Trump’s son, Eric Trump and his wife, Lara, will also be speaking.

“I can’t believe they’re really going ahead with it,” Maddow said. She shared clips of two vehement Nazi sympathizers whose rhetoric was so vile that she warned viewers to mute the TV if they didn’t want to hear something “rabidly antisemitic.”

Among many other claims, one neo-Nazi – Scott McKay – declared that “Hitler was fighting the same people that we’re trying to take down today” and that Jewish people were responsible for every presidential assassination, as well as 9/11. The other – Charlie Ward – is a Holocaust denier who has said the COVID-19 vaccines killed more people than the Holocaust.

Maddow emphasized that these two speakers will join the above-mentioned former White House officials, as well as Eric and Lara Trump, at the Trump-owned Doral resort in Miami. She added that Eric Trump has been traveling around the country “doing versions of this roadshow with these rabid antisemites.”

The “roadshow” is the “ReAwaken America” tour. It will make its stop at the Doral on May 12 and 13. The tour was co-founded by Michael Flynn, who has called for the United States to have “one religion.”

Maddow also mocked the former Trump officials for their inability to get a better gig after having so recently served in high-profile positions.

“You’d think you’d kinda be a hot ticket, right?” she said. “You’d think you’d have options, you’d be moving in impressive circles… You would think.”

In response to Maddow merely listing the attendees at the event and showing videos of what they’ve said, Eric Trump threatened to sue, tweeting that she “is walking a fine line.”

“We are the most pro-Israel family in American political history – from the Abraham Accords, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights to sanctioning Iran, no one has done more for Israel than our family,” he wrote. “Never mind that my sister, brother-in-law, and niece and nephews happen to be proud Jews. If she or anyone else even remotely suggests I am anti-semitic I will not hesitate to take legal action against them personally.”

In 2020, Eric Trump claimed his father “literally saved Christianity.”

“I mean, there’s a full-out war on faith in this country from the other side,” he said in an interview. “I mean, the Democratic party, the far-left has become the party of the quote-unquote atheists. They wanna attack Christianity. They wanna close churches. They wanna, you know, they’re totally fine keeping liquor stores open, but they want to close churches all over the country.”
