MSNBC plays fried chicken ad for NAACP president during racism discussion

MSNBC invited the head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Saturday to discuss charges of racism against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

And showed him a fried-chicken commercial.

MSNBC plays fried chicken ad for NAACP president during racism discussion

MSNBC invited the head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Saturday to discuss charges of racism against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

And showed him a fried-chicken commercial.



In the segment, liberal-network host Alex Witt cued up Cornell William Brooks for a clip of Hillary Clinton speech last week on Mr. Trump and the so-called alt-right.

But what played, according to clips posted on Mediate and elsewhere, was a commercial for KFC in which a dark-toned George Hamilton plays the “Extra Crispy Colonel” tanning his flesh on the beach.

The clip from the commercial for KFC’s $5 fill-ups continued for a little less than 10 seconds before going back to the remote shot of the host and guest.

“Absolutely not what we were gonna play,” Ms. Witt said before launching into a 20-second soliloquy about Mr. Trump and the racist alt-right.

Oops!

Hell of a mistake.

liberal-network host
so-called alt-right.
The Washington Times is a heavily conservative publication and they clearly have an agenda here.
Conservatives only care about racism directed at black people when it is coming from liberals.

Whoever was in charge of transitioning the live feed into the clip is most certainly fired.

But boy, this election. That is something.

Maybe when they interview David Duke about racism they can play a commercial about bed shoots or pillow cases.
