Rachel Maddow To Jon Stewart: Justice Scalia Is A ‘Troll Who Loves To Make People Mad’



VIDEO here: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/rachel-maddow-to-jon-stewart-justice-scalia-is-a-troll-who-loves-to-make-people-mad/


Rachel Maddow sat down with Jon Stewart to talk about her experience sitting in the Supreme Court this week during hearings over the Voting Rights Act. Maddow shared details of what it’s like to be in the court to hear the arguments, telling Stewart that Justice Antonin Scalia loves to “troll” with his deliberately provocative statements, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor subtly pushes back against him when she gets the chance. -snip-

1. Thanks, Tx4.

Do want DUers to hear this AND note that audio of the argument will be up today (Friday) so people can hear it. Unfortunately no video, as Rachel described Justice Sotomayor's response to Scalia as something worth SEEING.

Would love to observe reactions of the entire Court to Scalia's provocation. Rachel said there were gasps in the courtroom.

4. I'm very much interested -- thanks for the link!

Rachel's take on Scalia, if I understood her correctly, was that Scalia enjoyed playing the troll for shock value.

It was an amusing perspective that was, no doubt, geared for the Daily Show, but the fact that Sotomayor, who has worked with Scalia long enough to know when he's speaking his true beliefs, was stretching around to look at Scalia whenever she was speaking seems more indicative that he is just the rightwing jerk we've pegged him to be.

I'm looking forward to hearing more about it when Rachel talks about it on her show.

2. That was awesome.

I hope she's not pressured to apologize to him for saying it.

3. No way she is going to apologize or even be asked to apologize

 

Top rated show on msnbc. New contract.

5. As soon as she said 'troll',

my mood brightened. Of course he is! A true fit - Antrolian Scalia.

6. Scalia gets all his crap from fellow Conservatives...

It's what they come up with when they are alone.

We're mad at him. And his sycophants are mad at us.
