A guest on MSNBC found his airtime cut short when he dared to wish President Donald Trump success.
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle abruptly ended a segment Tuesday when Robert Traynham went rogue.
Ruhle asked Traynham to follow up on guest Louise Mensch’s condemnation of Trump and his chief strategist Steve Bannon.
“At the end of the day, what he is saying from a rhetorical standpoint, it hurts, there’s no doubt about it,” Traynham said.
“But I want him to succeed because I want our country to succeed. we cannot fail,” he added.
“We simply cannot fail,” Traynham tried to continue but Ruhle interrupted.
“OK, thanks Robert. We have to go. We’re going to go. We’re going to take a break,” she said.
Twitter users reacted, debating whether the cut off was due to the poor timing of a scheduled break in programming or an intentional shut-down of anything pro-Trump.

@DailyCaller Typical of the left to refuse to hear the truth, so they censor, shut down debate, riot, loot, burn; anything to deflect truth!

@DailyCaller what pisses me off is how the left always cries about free speech:as long as it’s them talking. They’re so afraid of success!

@DailyCaller it’s called a hard commercial break. As usual your tweet is very misleading.
