According to NBC’s Brian Williams, seeing war happen is “beautiful” — and that disgusting comment has thousands of Americans calling for the controversial news anchor to be fired.
Williams is facing a firestorm of online criticism for waxing poetic about what he called “beautiful pictures” of U.S. missiles launching during an attack on a Syrian air base.
Video released by the military shows Tomahawk missiles targeted for a Syrian airfield launching from the decks of U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday.
During his MSNBC program, “The 11th Hour,” late Thursday night, Williams said the “beautiful pictures at night” tempted him to quote a line from a Leonard Cohen song: “I am guided by the beauty of our weapons.”
He went on to call the images “beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments.”
Williams was quickly mocked and criticized on Twitter for the remarks, which The Horn News editorial staff combed through and picked the best.
