MSNBC cuts live broadcast of Trump briefing after 40 seconds; Brian Williams calls his statement ‘dangerous’

News & Politics

Cable news network MSNBC cut away from a media briefing by President Donald Trump about the ongoing election vote count and Brian Williams explained that, in his view, the president’s statements were dangerous to the country.

The president claimed that he had won the election, despite the vote count continuing, when MSNBC cut the feed and asked their legal correspondent Ari Melber to address his claims.

“OK. Here we are again in the unusual position of not only interrupting the president of the United States, but correcting the president of the United States,” said Williams.

“There are no illegal votes that we know of,” he added. “There has been no Trump victory that we know of.”

Williams later defended the action they took after the president’s media briefing ended.

“A word about our decision to dive out of the president’s remarks, it was not done as a stunt or theatrics, we just can’t have it,” said Williams.

“It was not rooted in reality — and at this point, in where our country is, it’s dangerous,” he added.

Williams said that MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace watched the address to fill in their viewers on what he said.

“You remained watching and listening and you’re gonna be our briefer on just how deep it got and what we missed,” said Williams to Wallace.

“Well I’m so glad that we kinda show our work because I’m proud I work at a network that didn’t contribute to what the president just did and I have the only show on the network named after the White House so i felt if part of my job to watch it for our viewers,” said Wallace.

“It is a speech that represents one of the more dangerous acts that Donald Trump has undertaken as president,” she claimed.

Fox News and CNN both aired the 17 minute address from the president in full. Some on the left excoriated CNN for airing the comments.

Here’s Williams explaining why they cut away from the president:

    1. Hey “Art Golden” You leftists are the nazi who love censorship! but you think American adults can’t make their own decisions on what is right or wrong. You control freaks will cause a CW2 for the nazi censorship which you are doing and allowing, not Trump. Fck all you anti-American control freaks! ANY AND ALL censorship is anti-American, if you agree with any type of censorship, you are not American and have zero understanding of what true freedom is. Take a few EndItAlls Art, do the world a favor.

  1. They can’t let their viewers see such a thing! They must keep them in the dark at all cost. We certainly wouldn’t want them to become informed now would we? God help our country.

  2. Because I choose not to spend my hard earned money on cable television I can only see the major networks of ABC, CBS and NBC. All 3 of those networks pulled away from our presidents comments. If he were lying they would have kept him on the air to further “bury himself”. They should all be ashamed of their fake news propaganda. I’m glad to hear at least CNN aired the whole thing. The way I see it the media has taken control over what this country is doing. We are on the door step of communism.

  3. Who the F… does Brian Williams think he is? Has he become the conscience of all the American people now? I see that he and MSNBC can’t believe that people can really think for themselves, we have to be led around by the nose, by the likes of them.

  4. MSNB☭ supports Demo☭rat Insurrection, Sedition and Treason.

    Trump must declare Martial Law and arrest Soros/BLM/ANTIFA, …and the “Deep State” that is entrenched in the DOJ/CIA/FBI/DNC/CAIR/SPLC/ Leftist Academia …..and all the complicit MSM members running Fa☭ebook, Twitter, Go☭☭le, ☭NN, AB☭, NB☭,☭BS, MSNB☭,☭NB☭, NPR, WaP0S, HuffP0S, MEDIA MALPRACTI☭E and THE NY SLIMES.

    Time to get serious Trump! Stop playing around with weak half measures that anyone with any common sense knows will not fly!

    The Seditious and Treasonous Deep State conspirators and Demo☭rat State and City officials MUST be and CAN be arrested using RICO laws.

    Someone should whisper that fact to AG Barr so as not to embarrass him!

    1. A bit of historical knowledge on Barr that is kept quiet for some reason….

      Barr was the HGW bush AG that sent the fib and atf after Randy Weaver in RUBY RIDGE, IDAHO that ended with the MURDER OR RANDYS WIFE BY LON HORICHI, FBI SHARPSHOOTER, while she was hiding behind a door, holding her baby.

      BOTH Lon and Barr are walking the streets today WITHOUT ACCOUNTABILITY for THAT MURDER!

  5. Make them pay with their pocketbooks vie poor ratings.
    We are all free to not watch MSNBC, perhaps even boycott their advertisers.

  6. Brian Williams who are you to censor the President of the US? We will decide what we can have or not have not you. What you did was wrong and I hope you pay dearly for it. Maybe when you grow up you will be able to handle the news whether it’s good or bad. So good luck to you little man.
