MSNBC’s Harris-Perry: ‘Who Wants to Go to Colorado and Get High for the New Year?’

THIS is MSNBC.

Saturday’s Melissa Harris-Perry show actually began with the host asking, “Who wants to go to Colorado and get high for the New Year?” (video follows with commentary):

Now consider for a moment that Harris-Perry is not a comedian. She’s not the host of HBO’s Real Time.

She anchors a two-hour show airing twice a week on a so-called cable “news network.”

And this was how she began her show Saturday to tease a segment in the program’s second hour concerning Colorado’s new law that goes into effect January 1 whereby businesses will be able to sell recreational marijuana.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, THIS is MSNBC - now inviting people to go to Colorado and smoke pot.
