Rachel Maddow devoted her lengthy opening monologue Wednesday night to President Donald Trump‘s treatment of the families of fallen soldiers. And she condemned the President in the strongest possible terms.

“We don’t have very many circuits as Americans to process this moral disgrace in our leadership,” Maddow said. She added, “It’s…hard for us as country to face the sacrifices and losses that these patriotic families have gone through. They’ve done something we civilians will never do. They’ve incurred a debt from this country we don’t know how to pay back already. It’s hard in normal times. But it’s incomprehensible for us as country to see those families of all people jerked around, and lied to, and slimed, and called liars by the President very shortly after these service members died.”

The MSNBC host echoed the comments of Bret Baier on Fox News earlier, who noted the horrific nature of having to report on a story like this.

“This just feels like a strange news story to report,” Maddow said. “It feels surreal. It feels so — it feels so unbelievable.”
