Yesterday, NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell helpfully pointed out that Joe Biden had a very good reason for calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy “a stupid son of a b*tch.” The president just doesn’t like when a reporter asks a question that has nothing to do with the topic at hand, like how Doocy asked about inflation during a presser about the economy.

Well, given O’Donnell’s spin, MSNBC’s shouldn’t come as much of a shock at all:

Man. MSNBC reeeeeeally doesn’t want to get deep into Joe Biden’s mean-tweet-on-hot-mic!

So weird, right?

Leave Joe Biden aloooooone!

They could’ve at least tried to kinda-sorta-maybe pretend that they wouldn’t trip all over themselves to white-knight for Biden.

You’d think MSNBC would understand what low ratings mean by now.

We’d tell MSNBC to never change, but they became a lost cause years ago. All they can do is stay the same.
