MSNBC's Rachel Maddow actually praised former President George W. Bush on Thursday for appearing on the comedy game show "Deal or No Deal" in 2008.

Maddow used the former president's appearance on the show to defend President Obama's appearance on "Between Two Ferns" with Zach Galifianakis earlier this week.

During her fierce defense of Obama, however, Maddow actually praised Bush.

"Good for him for doing it," she said approvingly.
