Social media was thoroughly entertained by MSNBC’s “meltdown” over the November 2 election results rolling in. The cable channel likely got a little boost in viewership as Twitter users suggested others quickly turn to the channel to enjoy the comedy special.
As Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin began to take a clear advantage over Democrat Terry McAuliffe, “MSNBC hosts had public meltdowns that made for must-see TV among conservatives” write Fox News.
“If you want to give yourself a treat, turn on MSNBC” Ann Coulter tweeted. National Review critic and writer Kyle Smith tweeted, “Every conservative I know is watching MSNBC.” Meghan McCain wrote, “MSNBC is on nothing short of an emotional journey to Narnia tonight.”
Radio host Buck Sexton tweeted, “MSNBC is currently going through the 7 stages of grief on an endless loop in real-time.” The panel of hosts, Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid and Nicolle Wallace “spent much of the night making excuses and blaming Youngkin’s success on the backlash to critical race theory, which they claim doesn’t exist” writes Fox News.
Once word got out that Wallace made the claim critical race theory doesn’t exist, “the outspoken, right-leaning crowd that typically wouldn’t dare admit to watching the far-left network couldn’t help themselves on Election Night.”
It wasn’t just the words of the hosts that garnered attention, but also the station’s coverage, which was in essence, denial. NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck shared many of the clips from the MSNBC hosts throughout the night, including when the network dropped out of covering gubernatorial races in favor of Republican candidates and covered New York City Democrat Eric Adams’ victory speech instead.
“MSNBC’s election night co-hosts made it clear that they were pessimistic about their chances as they instead continued to lie about gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, his voters, and Republicans write large by calling them ‘dangerous’ human beings ‘to our national security’ and racists ‘in fleece’ peddling ‘lies’ about critical race theory,” wrote Houck.
