Hillary Clinton‘s campaign has a lot of problems, but MSNBC’s David Shuster isn’t one of them.
That’s because the network suspended him for suggesting that Chelsea Clinton was “being pimped out in some weird sort of way” by her mother’s presidential campaign. Shuster initially defended the comments in an e-mail exchange with a Clinton aide as being somehow justified because the Clintons were playing a double-game by having the former first kid actively campaign while “jump[ing] down the throat” of reporters who tried to report on her activities in more detail. Shuster was quickly slapped with an indefinite suspension after sanctimony-fueled Clintonistas raised the specter of boycotting MSNBC appearances and an upcoming debate. Though few would disagree that Shuster’s remarks were inappropriate, some of course suspect the Clinton response may be purposefully exaggerated to make the most of a storyline that syncs up with female voters and jams a network they believe has been giving them short shrift.
