MSNBC’s midnight edition of Hardball was a trainwreck following Tuesday’s State of the Union address by President Trump, so it was only natural for the fun (or whatever you want to call it) to continue into the final hour of coverage.
For that, MSNBC turned things over to The Beat host Ari Melber, who oversaw plenty of nonsense on abortion, the President, and Stacey Abrams from guests Mara Gay of The New York Times editorial board and The Root’s Jason Johnson.
Gay made it clear that this hour would be one long-running Notable Quotable, asserting two minutes in that Stacey Abrams spoke “quite eloquently” about the President not having a grip on reality, joking that she wished someone would have been like Republican Congressman Joe Wilson (SC) would have yelled“you lie” at Trump.
She then expanded on that by attacking Trump’s “dark vision” and how “eerily offensive” it was for him to have guests like the Angel Family, Holocaust survivors, and World War II veterans.
