This is what happens when Democrats start to eat their own.
MSNBC host Ed Schultz nearly lost his mind during an on-air tirade Thursday after President Obama dissed the ultra-progressive network.
Schultz and other liberal talking heads have dared to be critical of their dear leader over his negotiations for the controversial free-trade agreement, Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Obama called out his progressive naysayers – albeit subtly – at an Organizing for Action Summit in Washington D.C. Thursday.
“If you were watching MSNBC and all this stuff, you were thinking, ‘Oh man. I loved Obama, but what’s going on here?’” Obama quipped.
“So I want to set the record straight. I want to be clear about what we are doing,” he said.
Apparently that little dig – if it can even be called that – was all it took to crush the soul of Schultz who used the air waves almost immediately after the president’s remarks and let him have it.
“Well Mr. President, I want you to know that I believe in what I’m doing,” Schultz defensively began.
“If you can prove to the American people that there will not be a depression of wages, if you can prove to the American people that this will create jobs, if you want to go face-to-face with me, President Obama, I’m ready to go because I have the facts, okay?”
Things got really personal for Schultz.
“President Obama, a word from this broadcaster to you,” he said.
“I supported you big time. I was the first liberal talker to support you. I’ve carried your water big time when it comes to health care, I’ve carried your water on the economy and defending your move on the automobile industry, but Mr. President, you can take shots at this network, but I guarantee you, you are wrong on this…”
There’s been no word yet if “water-boy” Schultz has made a full recovery.
