Ayman Mohyedin is a weekend host on MSNBC, because apparently he doesn’t quite have what it takes to get a weekend gig. But it looks like he may be stepping up his game quite a bit and auditioning for a cushy weekday slot.
Check out his recent monologue (i.e. ignorant rant) concerning criticism of this year’s World Cup host, the beautiful country of Qatar. It’s a doozy:
MSNBC's @AymanM: Will "any of these American pundits grandstanding about human rights [in Qatar] call for the US to be stripped of hosting the 2026 World Cup for the way elected leaders … have rolled back reproductive rights or are trying to ban the word gay in public schools?" pic.twitter.com/9pkC3zIeTq

Now if that’s not MSNBC primetime-worthy, we don’t know what is.
Absolute clown. https://t.co/dcVwkf6L4a

This reminds me of fellow travellers used to do during the Cold War — create a false moral equivalence to defend tyranny.

“Yeah, Qatar has slave labor and citizens trying desperately to flee systematic oppression, but the U.S. Supreme Court decided that abortion legislation shouldn’t be the federal government’s responsibility, and a lot of parents don’t even want their kindergarteners to learn about the spectrum of sexuality or be asked about what gender they are today.”
On one hand Qatar is a slave state in the middle of the desert with no history of being good at "football." On the other, abortion and straw men https://t.co/YbhofoQmLS

“Nuance and context matter here,” says Ayman. If he actually believed that, he never would have gone on that stupid little tirade in the first place.
Get some help, Ayman. You need it. Badly. Maybe MSNBC can get some kind of group therapy rate.
You are a hack @AymanM.

Pushback? Please. MSNBC loves this kind of stuff. Laps it up, vomits it back out, and then laps it up again. Wash, rinse, repeat.
This is the kinda stuff you have to say to get on MSNBC I guess
