Ed Schultz must have missed the memo from the White House last month. Clearly, he got it this week. In February, the bombastic MSNBC host was in favor of the Keystone XL Pipeline, calling liberals that opposed him “just as mean as Republicans” who can “go to hell.” Now, Ed has done a 180: he not only supports the pipeline, but asked on Monday if it will take Vietnam-style protests to stop it.
With a picture of Vietnam protests behind him, the irascible Schultz said:
“I don’t know what it’s going to take to stop the pipeline and get the message to the President of the United States. But for reference, this is what we had to do to stop war.”
So what’s going on with Ed? Why the 180? In less than a month? As I said, he obviously got the memo this time and has dutifully switched to the “correct” narrative and is now happily singing from the proper sheet of music.
