With political scandals and unprecedented events circulating the news daily, it can be extremely taxing for journalists to report on the Trump administration. Of course, Rachel Maddow knows this all too well. 

When she visited VICELAND's talk show Desus & Mero, the MSNBC host told Kid Mero and Desus Nice about how she now finds unique ways to dissect our political climate—citing events from our past, other countries' histories, and even science fiction. 

Additionally, Maddow gave the hosts her hot take on Jill Stein, Hillary Clinton, vacationing Obama, and her ride-or-die colleague Chris Hayes. Check out her full interview below.
