RACHEL MADDOW (HOST): I need to tell you that right now the former president, himself, is making remarks tonight from his home in Florida.
As far as we can tell, and what we are prepared for here is that this is basically a campaign speech in which he is repeating his same lies and allegations against his perceived enemies. It is just getting started, so far he is just giving his normal list of grievances.
We don't consider that necessarily newsworthy, and there's a cost to us as a news organization of knowingly broadcasting untrue things. So, our deal with you is that we will monitor these remarks. If he does say anything newsworthy, we will turn them around and report on that right away. But for now, just know that it's happening and we're not taking it.
