Is MSNBC just going to let this one pass?
MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance was either serious or thought it was funny by suggesting that Islamic State terrorists set their sights on a property owned by President Donald Trump.
“This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property,” he tweeted, suggesting that additional Trump properties should be destroyed afterwards.
Nance, who is a counter-terrorism analyst for the network, referred to Trump Tower Istanbul as the subject of an Islamic State terrorist attack.
Nance was later advised to be careful of his tweets lest someone take it them wrong way.

How can someone possibly take a suggestion that a terrorist organization blow up a particular property the wrong way?
During the presidential election, Nance accused Trump using Islamophobia to ultimately support the Islamic State.
“I will go so far as to say Donald Trump is the ISIS candidate,” he told MSNBC host Chris Matthews. “He inflames the passions of people in the West to perform Islamophobia, to draw recruits to them, to make them say ‘This is what America is.’”

Fox News Channel temporarily benched its senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano after he suggested that the Obama administration used British intelligence to wiretap Trump Tower during the campaign.
