Funniest thing on TV all week! MSNBC interviews prank caller on-air; ‘you’re a dumbass aren’t you?’


Critics claim that few in America pay much attention to what MSNBC says, but who knew that this applied to the networks own anchors?

While covering the passenger jet being shot down over Ukraine Thursday, host Krystal Ball touted an “MSNBC exclusive” before introducing what she believed to be an eyewitness to the attack.

The only problem is, it was a prank call.

“Well, I was looking out the window and I saw a projectile flying in the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass,” the man said when asked to describe what he saw.

Incredibly, Ball didn’t quite grasp what had just been said and continued the interview!

“So it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training of the sort of missile system that may have been coming from?” Ball asked.

“Well, you’re a dumbass aren’t you?” the caller replied.

After what may go down as one of the most awkward pauses in TV history, the network cut to a commercial break.

“We thought we had an eyewitness on the scene,” Ball told viewers when she came back on. “That individual was not actually an eyewitness.”

Ya’ think?

Clearly, the caller was not vetted by MSNBC, but their first clue might have been when he said he witnessed the incident though the window of the U.S. Embassy — which is several hundred miles from where the attack occurred.
