Our readers are well aware that we have spent the last few days denouncing the violent mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol this week. We are completely comfortable saying without reservation that what took place was awful. It was horrible. It was, at the very least, one of the darkest days for America in recent history.
All that said, there is something very, very wrong with Chris Hayes’ take on those events:
The Trump mob attack on the capitol now has a higher death toll than Benghazi.

Because you’re also an idiot?
We’d ask what Chris was thinking, but his innermost thoughts are probably a minefield right now. Best to avoid trying to navigate his mind and just stick to calling him out for that unbelievably terrible take.
The balls on this SOB!! https://t.co/V6y8ZJ4nno

Implying that up until now it’s been acceptable to mock people who thought it was an important story? https://t.co/RXIZdZtEmh

Chris Hayes showing more sympathy for white terrorists than for American diplomats killed by terrorists. https://t.co/NPuAzvQd9D

Not only is this amoral, it’s not even correct. If you’re including both “good guys” and “bad guys” there were way more than 4 people killed. Heck, 10 good guys were killed in Benghazi.
If you’re gonna be a jerk, get it right. https://t.co/i6sepxj1Ri

I think this is the first time he admitted there were 4 murders in Benghazi so progress. https://t.co/UmSqpUBC0l
