Biggest Gaffe Ever At MSNBC?


Lindsay Lohan

In the words of of Belle Carroca (Lanie Kazan) in the film classic, My Favorite Year, "This I did not even know."

And I'm willing to bet, MSNBC didn't know it either.

Joy Reid needed smelling salts after collapsing on stage hearing this. Reports are that she's fully recovered and won't miss any additional work at MSNBC.

MSNBC Fact checkers? Can you please clean up the mess in front of the White House lawn. Her name is Chris Jansing and she needs some schooling. Oh, and a washcloth to remove the egg from her face.

It seems the mush-headed thinking reporter, Jansing (who must have taken too much of her medication before going on air) claims she was talking about the President's father, not the President.

But if you hear her go on, she's absolutely talking about the President as she refers to his election and his expectations he'd do great things for Africa after his election sure make this reporter look awfully unprepared and quite ignorant.

The President's Kenyan father was never elected to anything as far as anyone fact checking can find. Quite a gaffe from a woman who will most certainly be the laughing stock of MSNBC for years to come. Her next assignment will probably be getting someone coffee at the news outlet, not reporting from the White House.


Did I hear this correctly?


I flipped on MSNBC and caught this Moment of WTF from Chris Jansing (slightly paraphrased):

"I know I shouldn't say this, but is Bill Clinton President Obama's Donald Trump?"

You're right, Chris, you shouldn't have said it.

No matter what similarities Jansing was referring to, if any exist, the premise is so faulty that she should have known better than to take it seriously enough to go against her own better judgment and ask that truly idiotic question.

The obligatory response:

Comparing a popular former Democratic president to a right wing shill was unnecessary and over the top. Clinton is admired and continues to contribute and be honored for his work both nationally and globally. He is clearly intelligent, a terrific communicator, and is highly accomplished.

He also has, you know, credibility.

Trump is a whackadoodle birther, an embarrassing laughingstock, a self-promoting buffoon, "the Pied Piper of American racism," whose current claim to fame is being a reality TV host with a bad comb-over who gets off on firing people.

In fact, his association with Mitt Romney is not exactly helping the GOP nominee's cause, whereas Clinton is generally a plus for Team Obama.

Come on, Ms. Jansing. You're better than that. Or are you?
