MSNBC Host Blames Ebola Crisis On The NRA [VIDEO]

Alex Griswold Media Reporter

On her online video series “Krystal Clear,” MSNBC host Krystal Ball managed to find an unlikely culprit lurking behind the Ebola crisis: the NRA.

“As the Ebola crisis continues, confusion and fear grows. So why are we still waiting on President Obama’s Surgeon General nominee to get to work? The answer: guns…

The U.S. Surgeon General is supposed to be the nation’s leading spokesman on matters of public health, a trusted public health expert who helps us all of us understand what we need to be worried about, like, I don’t know, maybe Ebola to name a random example. But because Senate Democrats are afraid of the NRA, President Obama’s nominee Dr. Vivek Murthy has been sitting on the sidelines since February.”

It’s worth noting that Ball’s personal website claims she is a “third generation, lifetime member of the NRA.”
