MSNBC cut off Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s victory speech on Wednesday night because he was talking too much about God.
Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell apparently got fed up with the constant references to “God” and “faith” after Moore defeated his primary opponent Sen. Luther Strange, so he had the control room cut away from the speech.
“We are one nation under God and we can become one nation unified,” Moore said during the victory speech. “There’s so much division in our society…but we’re all created in the image of God.”
“I recall what Harry Truman said in his inaugural address,” he continued. “The American people stand firm in the faith which has inspired this nation from its beginning. We believe that all people are created in the image of God and from that faith we will not be moved.”
O’Donnell chimed in at that point, cutting back to the studio.
“Okay, we’re going to come back into the studio for this conversation,” O’Donnell said. “What I’ve been told by the control room is that he has been speaking about God, and about God almost exclusively with I think no real reference to his opponent or Donald Trump.”
