MSNBC has destroyed their reputation by basically serving as the official media outlet of the Democratic Party. Viewership plummeted, their credibility tanked. So now, they’re trying to reinvent themselves as a real news network once again, but they’re having a bit of a hard time getting rid of that pesky liberal bias. It just seeps in, no matter what they do.
MSNBC decided to air a segment featuring Donald Trump’s supposedly racist supporters. They were hoping to find David Duke-esque white supremacists who loved the KKK. Instead, their guest made them all very, very confused.
David Corn, the Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones was on with anchor Tamrom Hall to discuss David Duke’s endorsement of Donald Trump. But they made the mistake of undermining their own argument when they aired this video:
It then cut back to Hall and Corn, who were both visibly stunned. Neither of them were able to respond for a minute, and when they did, they were clearly flustered. Once they recovered, they began stammering a defense, saying that African-Americans don’t make up the majority of Trump’s supporters. But of course, African-Americans are still a minority of the American population, so they don’t make up the majority of anyone’s supporters. But they continued to bash Trump, using racial division as their weapon.
Meanwhile, social media made no secret of the fact that they found this segment laughable.
MSNBC tries to paint Trump as racist. Ironic that the guy they cut to is African American and says to stop race… https://t.co/XdWJ8jOTb5
