A common theme emerged on social media Tuesday night as Virginia Republican
gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin took a clear advantage over Democrat
Terry McAuliffe: MSNBC hosts had public meltdowns that made for must-see TV
among conservatives.

Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid and Nicolle Wallace had a hard time holding back
their feelings and Twitter noticed. The liberal hosts spent much of the night
making excuses and blaming Youngkin’s success on backlash to critical race
theory, which they claim doesn’t exist. The outspoken, right-leaning crowd
that typically wouldn’t dare admit to watching the far-left network couldn’t
help themselves on Election Night.

"MSNBC is currently going through the 7 stages of grief on an endless loop in
real time," radio host Buck Sexton tweeted. "It’s great, highly recommend."

"If you want to give yourself a treat, turn on MSNBC," Ann Coulter tweeted as
results began to favor Republicans in key races.

National Review critic Kyle Smith declared, "Every conservative I know is
watching MSNBC."

Pundit Stephen L. Miller joked, "It's early yet but MSNBC is pulling a bit
ahead in the election meltdown. Still waiting for returns from some of CNN's
more loyal viewers and the late night returns but Joy Reid looks to be
pulling away early. Still too close to call though."

Meghan McCain added, "MSNBC is on nothing short of an emotional journey to
Narnia tonight."

While conservatives don’t typically watch the liberal network, MSNBC brass
will presumably take the additional viewers. MSNBC finished October with its
lowest-rated month among the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25
-54 since October 2015. It was also MSNBC’s worst month among the demo during
the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. since December 2015.

Conservatives might have briefly helped the struggling network attract
viewers, but they didn’t exactly like what they saw from MSNBC.

"MSNBC’s election night co-hosts made it clear that they were pessimistic
about their chances as they instead continued to lie about gubernatorial
candidate Glenn Youngkin, his voters, and Republicans writ large by calling
them ‘dangerous’ human beings ‘to our national security’ and racists ‘in
fleece’ peddling ‘lies’ about critical race theory," NewsBusters managing
editor Curtis Houck wrote.

Houck shared several clips of MSNBC hosts throughout the night including the
moment the left-wing network bailed on gubernatorial races to show Eric
Adam’s New York City mayor victory speech.

"That's how you know it's been a really bad night for liberals," Houck wrote.

Houck also shared a clip of Wallace claiming Youngkin’s success is "built on
lies" and noted the network didn't seem to care about women of color winning
key races.

"All of the people on MSNBC convincing themselves that all of these VA voters
— who voted for Biden a year ago! — are idiots, racists, and/or dupes is
pretty wild," The Dispatch editor-in-chief Jonah Goldberg wrote.

Journalist Ian Miles Cheong is hopeful that he’ll be able to enjoy all the
reactions from liberal pundits that he might have missed in real-time.

"I hope someone makes a compilation of the MSNBC and CNN meltdowns going on
right now over Youngkin's victory," he wrote.
