MSNBC Condemns Trump for Referring to Paris Attack as Terrorism

Written by  Curtis Houck

UPDATE: ISIS claims responsibility.

In the moments following President Trump’s Thursday press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, MSNBC and its myriad of panelists swiftly condemned Trump for referring to the deadly shooting in Paris on the Champs-Élysées as a terrorist attack.

“President Trump said right off the bat to a question looks like another terrorist attack in France that we have not been comfortable to call it that or report that but we'll have more reporting upcoming,” disgraced MSNBC host Brian Williams complained.

Moments later, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd complained about Trump “getting ahead of the facts” even though police were indicating that what took place was terrorism.

Timeout, Chuck. It’s both infuriating and hilarious when the media complains that they’re not in control of what’s reported or said about something. Who’s largely in charge of informing the masses about what’s going on in the world? The media.

Moving on, Todd griped:

And then I am with you, look, the only thing on the what's going on in Paris, you know, always a dangerous time to be — you know, the coverage is getting ahead of the facts and I think, you know, the President was referring to what he was saying he's watching on television.

Since when is it NBC's job to critique what the President of the United States says? The news media has been one-sided too long! Don't watch them anymore!!

If Trump walked on water, their headline would be "TRUMP CAN'T SWIM". I think it has already been determined that it was a terrorist attack, you bunch of idiots.

The Butt holes at MSNBC are leftist propagandist and the other mainstream Propagandist are are also left wing not centrist, but leftist spin Doctors not reporters!!!

Brian Williams - the LIAR. No one believes him? Williams can not see the truth even when some one points it out to him. Trump identified the Paris attack as Terrorist activity but Brian, the Muslim lover, does not want to acknowledge the TRUTH. Why keep such stupid and dishonest Reporters?

I thought a reporter's job was to REPORT the news .MSNBC and most of the media no longer REPORT the news, they tell fake news and add their opinions trying to get those of us that can think to their side and ignore the truth....... If this a*s reporter reported that today is Friday I would doubt him and check my calendar.

MSNBC is a joke. I bet the stupid fools they call "reporters" would feel differently if they where there themselves or had family killed in the " ATTACK" .

From 2009 till 2016 MSNBC never attacked our former liar in chief for lying, or covering up illegal acts? Now this new President cannot accidentally fart with it becoming headline news of their twisted logic the past which nearly destroyed thus nation is better than the present? How about some honest news, instead of assumptions, make believe unproven errors in his character? Think about it; MSNBC, CBS, and CNN lying to us daily, and wrongfully attacking the President for political reasons, not news worthy events? Even the New York Times and Daily News now pieces of toilet paper reporting false news and pushing lies as the truth? Stupid announcers like Lemon on CNN proving he is a total moron, who shows his hate for Trump, while worshiping a pathological liar?

You are so right. Brian Williams can not recognize truth even when it is staring him in the face. He does not report the events - it is his interpretation based on his ideology. Sad.

Seriously MSNBC????? Like that's really the commie rhetoric I want to listen to....NOT!!!! Whatever President Trump says or does will always be distorted by them to suit their personal agenda...not actual facts. I have family in Paris....they called it an 'attack'....I called it an 'attack' when watching it on the news. Just thankful they were not in the area at that time....like my cousin was at the concert with that 'attack' and watched his 2 best friends get killed.

Sure there are peaceful muslims but almost all hate Israel and many of them become Americians and love our country I do not believe that many care for Americia In Europe they stay to themselves have shiaria lose which they try to do here wake up Americia they teach in our schools leading them to believe what their saying are schools are failing and changing Americia




I am sick of these idiots intentionally downplaying terrorism because they want us to think Islam is peace, just peace, all peace. They don't even report on events sometimes, they call it workplace violence. - sickening!

The only things that are a terrorist is this news,network like CNN fox news NBC . you news outlet suck at reporting the truth and the news that needs to be told. I don't listen to Satan's news channels. Your lucky that you have to be kissing Obama and Hillary's asses just to keep your jobs. When it's comes to relying on you we can't

The Media not only tells us who to vote for; but now they tell us what to say/think. I thought it was the job of Journalist to "report the news" not to be propagandist and make the news. Todd, your sophistic comments are making me think bad things about you.

Brian " the Liar" Williams should report from an ISIS stronghold in Syria - so he can get his facts straight.

MSNBC is a crap network! Whatever Trump says they will say the opposite. Brian Williams and Chuck Todd are a disgrace to the media!

There are many news sources out there and some of them are bad. The media is responsible for getting the news out, not some pompous person (the President); who got it from the TV. I guess that Trump can't think for himself. He should leave the news to the media.

Don't work your little mind into a TIZZY, Hope Duchaine. ISIS will prove him right.

Hope - you are a Hopeless idiot. The deed clearly had all of the characteristics of a terrorist attack; it was perpetrated by a Muslim who expressed his desire to be a soldier of Allah, and yet the leftwing media and people like you refuse to acknowledge it looks like terrorism? Stupidity at work! Trump was right, as usual, clearly thinks for himself, and obviously has far more brain power than you. Perhaps you shouldn't watch the news as you may be unable to interpret it at all. Typical liberal.

Hope, I believe Mr. Trump would have access to even better info than the silly media has, he gets reports on a daily basis from our intel sources, PLUS with ISIS CLAIMING the dastardly deed as their own, plus the media have a tendency to speak out "of both sides of their mouths at the same time, how can any sane person belive?, trust? or even respect ANYTHING they have to say about ANYTHING?????

Hope: Oh my. Just like a typical Liberal. No one is allowed to say anything until the main stream press says it first? A President of the United States is irresponsible for commenting on a news event? You think that Trump has no source of news other than the TV? Do you ever think about the meanings of the words? Anyone who kills multiple people in a public place is causing terror. And thus is a terrorist. It is true that the bulk of terrorism today is Islamic. But as a Liberal, you aren't supposed to admit that. One does not have to validate that the terrorist is a Muslim and cries out in praise of Allah to know that an event is terrorism.

These " journalists " need to be in prison for sedition and treason.
