The GOP is calling the network out
Progressive cable news channel MSNBC broadcasted a selectively edited video of the unhinged interaction between Joe Biden and a voter demanding answers on gun rights.
Many criticized Biden for immediately cursing at the man for challenging him on previous comments he had made about confiscating guns from Americans.
"You are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns," the worker said to Biden.
"You're full of s**t!" Biden responded.
The Democratic presidential front-runner went on to threaten to slap the man in the face and call him a "horse's ass."
But none of that made it to the video during the report about the interaction on MSNBC with veteran reporter Andrea Mitchell.
Mitchell said she was paraphrasing when she misquoted Biden as saying "you're full of it," instead of what he actually said.
GOP National Spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington criticized the news channel in a tweet accusing the network of manipulating the video.
"MSNBC's take on Joe Biden attacking a union worker in Michigan, calling him 'full of sh*t', a 'horse's ass,' and threatening to slap the worker? Just Joe 'mixing it up' They also selectively edited the video to leave out the insults and the threat," Harrington tweeted.
"Manipulation!" she added.
MSNBC also neglected to mention that Biden publicly announced that Beto O'Rourke would head up his gun control efforts, and that Biden himself told CNN that his administration would confiscate guns from gun owners.
Mitchell was previously caught deceptively editing video during a report on the 2012 election.
Here's the video of MSNBC's misleading report:
