It should come as no shock that the less than credible Rachel Maddow says she had no issues with the less than credible Brian Williams prior to him joining MSNBC. However, the friendly atmosphere may have evaporated a tad when Williams took over Maddow’s show to break the news of U.S. missile strikes on Syria earlier this month.
At the end of the live segment, Williams turned to Maddow and said, “Thanks for visiting tonight. Glad you were a part of our coverage.”
Maddow’s fans went crazy, taking to Twitter to voice their disgust with “lyin’ Brian,” whom many consider a sexist pawn put in place by the network to override Maddow.
Annoyed to hear Brian Williams thanking Rachel Maddow for assisting with coverage – he took over her show!!

The New York Post is now reporting that the event didn’t go unnoticed by management at MSNBC. Network insiders told the Post that MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was fuming mad over the way Williams behaved towards the network’s biggest star. Allegedly, Griffin told Williams to never to do it again.
Reportedly, Williams was also called out for referring to the missile strikes as “beautiful” on the April 6 broadcast.
Williams, who at one time would have never shown his face on a discredited channel like MSNBC, was fired from NBC Nightly News in 2015 after he “misremembered” his experiences during the Iraq War. That’s when Williams was shuffled over to MSNBC to become a breaking news anchor and also hosts an 11 p.m. wrap-up hour. Maddow has replaced Williams as the network’s golden anchor. Her ratings have skyrocketed since Donald Trump took over the Oval Office.
