Brian Williams On US Missiles In Syria: ‘Beautiful’


Whether you think attacking Syria is a brilliant masterstroke by genius tactician Donald Trump, the first inevitable step toward World War 3, or something in-between, we can all agree on one thing: MSNBC anchor and noted prevaricator Brian Williams is hilarious.

Take it away, Bri-Bri:

“We see these beautiful pictures at night from the decks of these two U.S. Navy vessels in the eastern Mediterranean. I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen: ‘I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons.’ And they are beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments making what is, for them, a brief light over this airfield.”

Not only was Brian tempted, but he gave into that temptation in the very same breath. That’s live television news, people.

If this offends you, don’t worry. Brian Williams probably didn’t mean it.
