An MSNBC anchor mistakenly confused the opening of a soda can in the control room on set for gunshots.
“I think we just heard some gunshots,” said Nicolle Wallace live on air during her show Deadline. “Should we listen to that for a second, control room? Not gunshots? Okay. They’ll tell us if there’s something we need to dip in and listen to.”
Wallace was providing live coverage of the shooting at YouTube Headquarters in San Bruno, CA, when she became jumpy behind the anchor’s desk
Listen to the bizarre moment below:
Wallace was interviewing Steve Schmidt, RINO political strategist for President George W. Bush.
She was in the midst of attempting to spin a web between the YouTube shooting, conducted by an Iranian Hijab-wearing PETA activist, and 9/11, already playing identity politics before the blood was dried at YouTube HQ.
“Steve Schmidt, I always go back to the horror of 9/11 and the complete reliance, you know, we’re in our tribes, we’re in our corners most of our lives,” said Wallace.
At that moment, the someone in the control room popped the top to a can of soda, having accidentally left the sound on, and Wallace freaked out.
If any of the limousine liberals at MSNBC who advocate for gun confiscation while being protected by private, armed security had ever seen, held, or fired a weapon in real life, perhaps ridiculous mistakes like this wouldn’t occur live on national television.
But if that were the case, then who would we laugh at?
