MSNBC host skewered for saying we’re ‘very, very lucky’ NY ‘attacker’ didn’t use guns

MSNBC host Chris Hayes came under fire for a comment about how “lucky” it was that the suspect in this weekend’s bombings used explosives rather than guns.

In the wake of the bombings in New York City and New Jersey, followed by the capture of the alleged attacker, Hayes issued a social media comment on Twitter.

Hayes was immediately slammed by Twitter users, including those in the media.

Hayes gave himself a pat on the back for dealing with the critics.

But National Review editor Charles C. W. Cooke did not let Hayes off the hook that easily.

Hayes debated with others as well.

Cooke and Hayes then fired a series of tweets at each other as the backlash continued.
