7. I think you're wrong.
He's speaking, to me, like a man who knows he's been given free rein to speak freely everything that's on his mind, and at length, because it gets his network attention. Because it gets ratings. Because it gets picked up and placed on YouTube and hundreds of thousands more people see it than would normally tune into his show on MSNBC. Because they watch these viral videos of his commentaries and say "Damn, I'm watching this guy's show from now on!" Which translates into higher ratings and thus better ad sales.

I think this is a man whose management realizes it is lucky enough to have on hand a piece of writing and performing talent whose opinions of the current administration are exactly what a growing number of people in this country want and need to hear. That not all is lost. That someone still remembers the ideals America was founded on...even if the current administration does not. And who has the guts to say so.
