Rachel Maddow Breaks Down Over Babies Being Held in ‘Tender Age’ Shelters (Video)

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow struggled to process the latest news that the babies and toddler-age children of undocumented immigrants have been sent to “tender age” shelters by the Trump administration.

“This has just come out from the Associated Press, Trump Administration officials have been sending babies and other young children to at least three …” Maddow said on Tuesday’s show, then she had to stop mid-sentence as she couldn’t hold back her emotions.

“Can we put up the graphic of this?” Maddow asked her producers, “… three ‘tender age’ shelters in South Texas, lawyers …”

Maddow couldn’t finish the report and said through her tears, “I think I am going to have to hand this off,” before abruptly ending the show.

“The Rachel Maddow Show” host was referring to the Associated Press report released earlier Tuesday night stating that Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three ‘tender age’ shelters in South Texas.

The Rio Grande Valley shelters have play rooms full of crying preschool-age children in crisis, according to lawyers and medical providers who have visited the facilities, the AP reported.

Maddow later apologized for her breakdown via Twitter, saying: “Ugh, I’m sorry. If nothing else, it is my job to actually be able to speak while I’m on TV.

“I apologize for losing it there for a moment. Not the way I intended that to go, not by a mile.”

She went on to relay the story as she had intended to on-air but via Twitter.
