There sure seem to be a lot of liberals on their knees lately. We have NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem. We even have national anthem singers taking a knee while they’re singing the national anthem. And of course we had Madonna offering to get on her knees for every Hillary voter, although that was for a different purpose…oh never mind.
In any event, it is the trend du jour to “protest” the national anthem in an act of virtue signaling. And not surprisingly, it has spread to the home of righteous indignation, MSNBC.
As BizPac Review reports, An MSNBC anchor had to apologize to viewers following a reporter’s live segment during the playing of the national anthem.
MSNBC reporter Jacob Rascon told Tamron Hall back in the studio that it was “a little difficult to hear” her as he reported live from a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina. But as he continued his report, it became clear what the reason was.
Over Rascon’s shoulder, the camera shot showed a woman singing the “Star Spangled Banner” on the stage in the background with the entire auditorium on its feet.
The reporter pressed on, answering Hall’s question about reports that Trump’s national political director resigned.“And obviously we too, Jascob Rascon, not realizing the programming that is obviously behind him,” Hall explained. “So our respects, of course, to this country and the young lady there singing behind you.”
Not realizing the “programming that is obviously behind him?” You mean not giving a crap about the “programming” that is behind him.
Contrast that of course to the very respectful (Jamaican) Usain Bolt who halted his interview as the (American) national anthem was being played.
How very sad that we’ve fallen this far. The even sadder question is, have we hit bottom yet?
