Left-wing cable news outlet MSNBC suffered charges of “sexism” from its own fans when popular bomb throwing host Rachel Maddow was booted off the air during her own time slot and replaced by network anchor Brian Williams who hit the air to report on President Donald Trump’s Syrian strikes.
MSNBC fans were further perplexed and enraged when at one point during his coverage of the U.S. strike, he used the term “beautiful” to describe the strikes.
Of course, the once disgraced Williams is MSNBC’s breaking news reporter and is supposed to hit the air whenever a big story is breaking, similar to Fox News’ own anti-Trump host Shepard Smith (who also managed to t-off much of Fox’s base the same night).
While Maddow’s appearance shouldn’t have been surprising, the more gripes the better for the perpetually disgruntled Left.
As Williams’ reporting continued, Maddow’s fans grew angrier and complained about the “sexism” of Williams booting Maddow out of her own time slot so he could report on the breaking story.
It’s on! Ethics complaint filed against Adam Schiff; will he respond with same honor as did Devin Nunes?
.@MSNBC@maddow was on when you had B Williams come in & take over.
SHE has a PhD from Oxford.
He didn't graduate
She didn't need rescuing.

Some viewers also wondered what the heck Williams was rambling about when he called the U.S. missile strike “beautiful.”
“I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen, ‘I am guided by the beauty of our weapons,'” Williams said during his reporting.
“And they are beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments making what is for them a brief flight over this airfield,” he added.
But, many blew a gasket when Williams waxed poetic over the missiles.
Shep quick to slap up old tweets to try and shame Trump, promptly gets spanked by a general instead

FFT for @realDonaldTrump: Nigel Farage & the base are not happy. Brian Williams called strikes beautiful. Something wrong with that maybe?
