Brian Williams Criticized for Describing Syria Missile Images as ‘Beautiful’

Anchor made the comments during MSNBC breaking news segment

Brian Williams has found himself in hot water again.

MSNBC’s breaking news anchor, who was suspended in 2015 for fabricating stories, described images of the U.S. airstrike on Syria as “beautiful.”

“I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen, ‘I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons.’” said Williams during his segment that interrupted Rachel Maddow’s show. “And they are beautiful pictures of fearsome armaments, making what is for them a brief flight over this airfield.”

His soliloquy quickly generated responses on Twitter.

Williams’ MSNBC appearance also fired people up for interrupting Rachel Maddow’s show.
