MSNBC Journalist: We’re Lucky NYC Attacker Used Explosives Rather Than Guns

In  what must be one of the dumbest statements ever recorded by a so-called journalist, MSNBC’s Christopher Hayes, the host of “All In,” said the following on Twitter in the wake of the bombing attack in NYC over the weekend that injured 29 people.

The suspect, identified as Ahmad Khan Rahami, was apprehended by police following a shootout in Linden, New Jersey on Monday. Rahami and two police officers were injured during the exchange of gunfire.

It didn’t take long for the Twitter-sphere to start smashing Hayes for his abjectly stupid statement.

There is much more opprobrium on Twitter.  You can check it out or add to it by clicking here.

    Christopher who? What is an MSNBC? Mysteriously Stupid News Broadcasting Corporation?

    • OFBG October 13, 2016, 3:51 pm

      No, no, no! There’s no mystery about it. How could there be, with people like Al Sharpton on their payroll?
      MSNBC is the MONUMENTALLY Stupid News Broadcasting Corporation.

    Christopher Hayes of MSNBC is trying to “score points” with the boss at MSNBC and is trying to make a gun control statement. MSNBC is the same as the other biased Democrat gun control network news media. The bottom line is the major news networks WANT DERANGED HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT ALONG WITH HER ASININE SUPPORTERS.

    This is typical of the biased network news, that is NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, CNN, HLN. The comment that the biased network news ignores issues that would NOT be supportive of the people they want to be elected is absolutely true. If the issues would hurt people the biased network news does NOT want to be elected, the issues would be HEADLINE NEWS. In this case, Christopher Hayes has used a minor event and tried to twist the facts to make the event a biased Democrat gun control issue. It is sad but true, the news media in general cannot be truthful. They want Hillary for president and if it takes misinformation, twisting the facts, lies, contrived news TV broadcasts as done by Katy Couric and Bloomberg, then so be it !!!!

    Think about it. If the liar and corrupt bitch Hillary is elected, the biased network news will be happy and this trend that is a disgrace to the United States and insulting and offensive to honest citizens will continue!!!

    Sorry, but the title is wrong. Chris Hayes – as well as most of the talking heads on MSNBC – is not a “journalist.”

  • MikeB September 23, 2016, 4:09 pm

    Just more proof there is no fixin’ stupid. Every once in a while I try to watch MSNBC to be fair. But as soon as I see Sharpton, MadCow or slobbers Matthews I become violently ill and have to change channels.

  • DaveP326 September 23, 2016, 1:44 pm

    Chris Hayes obviously OD’d on stupid pills. I do believe that the bomber that was shot dis use a gun to shoot the officers. I think Hayes should go back to school and learn the difference between facts and opinions. 9/11 was executed using aircraft. The Boston marathon bombers used pressure cookers. Only by the grace of God that the Chelsea bomber didn’t pick a busier location and time. Just for the record, Chris- he had a gun-and he used it to shoot two cops.

    There is nothing intelligent about MSNBC. I will not waste my time even turning on my TV to their channel and not paying attention. They are totally disconnected from reality.

  • Pavel September 23, 2016, 12:45 pm

    Stupidirt should be painful. And MSNBC is political propaganda, not journalism, so nobody that works there should be termed a journalist.

  • Tommy Barrios September 23, 2016, 12:37 pm

    IF we demand that the FCC force Cable Companies into providing strict ala cart services, Nutwerks like MSNBC would be OUT OF BUSINESS!
    That would STOP the Cable Companies from paying outrageous Cable Access Fees to Networks like the MicroSucksNarcissistBroadcastingCollective as they don’t get enough money from advertisers any longer becasue of their piss poor ratings to stay on the air!

  • E SIG September 23, 2016, 11:19 am

    What a shame that Chris Hayes was not on one of the 9-11 flights. They had no explosives or guns, only $2.99 box cutters. What a frigging idiot, but that is what reports on and controls all of MSNBC….. And some idiot Americans actually watch that channel. They’ll be the ones looking for the Soap Dishes and Towels in the showers, awaiting the Zyklon B rise stage. Idiots.

  • John C G September 23, 2016, 11:14 am

    This is just a portion of the many reasons why MSNBC trails so distantly in the cable news network ratings. This guy is a BUFOON.

    • OFBG October 12, 2016, 7:25 pm

      Got to agree with you, John.
      The “up” side of what you note is that apparently even the “bleeding-heart liberals” demographic that is targeted by MSNBC doesn’t see that network as credible.

  • Ziggy September 23, 2016, 11:03 am

    Somebody famous (I should google the source, but I am not going to) once said \”one can remain silent and be thought a fool, or open your mouth and remove all doubt.\” Perhaps Mr. Hayes should have kept his mouth, or in this case his twitter app, closed.

    • OFBG October 11, 2016, 7:47 pm

      Ziggy, you were right not to bother googling the source of that quote; it is a universal truth.
      I did, once upon a time seek the source, and found it attributed to Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, Samuel Johnson, and the Book of Proverbs.
      Regardless of the ultimate source, it is a true and accurate statement.

  • Frank Mancuso September 23, 2016, 10:01 am

    Only MSNBC could scrape up somebody that utterly clueless and then give them a job as a “journalist.”

    • OFBG October 11, 2016, 7:51 pm

      Actually, if you pay attention to his show, you will realize that Chris Hayes is in fact a male clone of Rachel Maddow.

  • Mike September 23, 2016, 7:56 am

    I’m going to start playing THEIR game and use it against them, petition MSNBC for that dumbass to step down..

  • Anon Mouse September 23, 2016, 6:35 am

    MSNBC; enough said.

  • Robert September 23, 2016, 5:46 am

    Ah, another liberal making a “sound” remark. I bet the people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were saying the same thing. This clown should be made to get a license to speak or convey any thought to others.

  • DRAINO September 22, 2016, 10:57 am

    Sometimes……all you can do is shake your head and shrug your shoulders in disbelief at the things these idiots say.

  • Will Drider September 20, 2016, 9:25 pm

    The only “luck” involved was that this terrorist was a shitty bomb maker and the NJ Event started late. The whiney antigun bitchs will twist anything to tie guns into blood headlines.

  • Tom Stelene September 20, 2016, 4:30 pm

    What the hell does anybody expect from an Establishment mouthpiece like Rachel Madsow’s kid sister?

  • SuperG September 20, 2016, 1:05 pm

    To expect a liberal, who probably lives in a gated community, who has security guards at work, to know anything about the evil than men do, makes you naive. He’s just another functioning sheeple, expressing the thoughts of his masters, then claiming his paycheck.
