Twitter hammers MSNBC and Ari Melber for having Donald Trump sycophant Jack Kingston on The Beat after CNN fired him: “He is nothing but a dishonest human talking point,” one user tweeted.
Melber also angered viewers after he seemed to give Kingston a big chunk of his airtime to spew a lot of nonsense. He also insulted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a “29 year old coffee barista” while defending Donald Trump, who has declared corporate bankruptcy multiple times.

@AriMelber @MSNBC why did you bring on that Trump sycophant & hack Jack Kingston? He’s awful. He disrespected a sitting congressperson immediately and offers nothing but whataboutisms and false equivalents. Please do not give him one more second of airtime. #TheBeat

Of course MSNBC sweeped up Jack Kingston, and of course he's on #TheBeat which has welcomed some unsavory people in the past…
