Give MSNBC credit: They know their audience. An audience that consists predominantly of left-leaning, yoga-loving, safe space-hiding, special little snowflakes.
During a segment with Rachel Maddow, viewers had to be warned that they might want to look away and send young children out of the room before a particularly unsettling video clip was aired. Such warnings are reserved for graphic content.
So what was this warning for? They didn’t want their viewers to be subjected to gruesome, stomach-churning … anti-Hillary buttons. No, seriously.
Maddow warned her audience before airing the clip that “you may find it uncomfortable” and “may not want to look at this stuff” before showing RNC vendor buttons that said “Hillary for prison” and the like.
The buttons included ones that read “Hillary for prison” and “Vote no to Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2016.” Maddow informed viewers, “You may find it uncomfortable. And so, you may not want to look at this stuff. But these are some of the pins that are being sold at the venue.”
Maddow continued, “But from calling Hillary Clinton a bitch, to the KFC special referring to her breasts and thighs and left-wing and all of those other things. That’s part of the merchandise of the RNC.”
Oh, the humanity!
Watch the segment below:
Social media users rightfully mocked the segment:
The gentle Left Wingers — who spew hate and vitriol at Conservatives — needed a "safe zone" from buttons? https://t.co/80H1hSEpDe

Ah ha ha ha ha @MSNBC Never ask both of your viewers to look away at the same time. Terrible for ratings. Clowns

The only lingering question for me is whether any of the 1000+ social media users who called Melania Trump a bitch, whore, and more were among the delicate souls who left the room during the segment.
