MSNBC host Chris Hayes dishonored the deaths of a dozen U.S. military personnel when he tweeted on Thursday, “Again, probably a THOUSAND people are going to die today from Covid.”
He later added, “This was an underestimate, unfortunately.”
Though the statistic was true, the attitude was disrespectful to the 13 families of those who lost loved ones, our military and our nation. Simply put, Hayes should never represent American media again.
Again, probably A THOUSAND people are going to die today from Covid.

Hayes’ immediate attempt to minimize the deaths shows he is not a journalist but rather an apologist for the Biden administration. It doesn’t matter how many people died from Covid in a day when we’re talking about the loss of U.S. military members—especially considering none of these people had to die if President Biden would have evacuated all Americans from Afghanistan before he pulled the troops out and surrendered 10,000+ people to the Taliban.
How would Hayes like it if he had a family member or close friend die and someone said, “Again, probably a THOUSAND people are going to die today from Covid”?
The feeling would probably be a bit unsettling, right? Just like the feeling many Americans had reading those words from a person paid by MSNBC to tell Americans what’s important in our world.
One Twitter user sarcastically replied, “Can you update us on how many people died today from heart disease, cancer, murder, or basically any other form of death? I know it would mean a lot to the families of the service members who died today.”
“This tweet sucks dude,” Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy reacted.
Could you imagine a conservative host saying the same thing? Imagine Tucker Carlson or Greg Kelly tweeting the same words and picture the heat they’d receive from America.
Why does someone from MSNBC get away with disrespecting the lives of dead military members? Instead of mocking those who died and talking about Covid 24/7, maybe grow a conscience and show some empathy for those who died. AND STOP CARRYING WATER FOR THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION!
We’re not talking about people who got sick and died. These were people serving in Afghanistan to protect our lives. This was not vacation and they did not get to pick when and where they served. They were forced by an incompetent Biden administration to give their lives so activists like Chris Hayes could rant about Covid numbers. At least have the decency to mourn our lost military lives! Especially when they didn’t have to die.
And by the way, not a word about the terrorists who killed them? Hayes can talk for hours about his concerns with Americans who won’t take a vaccination, but not a word about terrorists who blew themselves up in some messed up attempt at martyrdom.
And while we’re at it, Hayes isn’t even the only one. His MSNBC buddy Malcolm Nance tweeted, “20 YEARS- FYI there have been terrorist suicide bombers killing civilians nearly DAILY in Afghanistan. This ain’t new. It’s why we are leaving. #DealWithIt,” Fox News reported. Thank God, Nance later deleted the tweet.
But Hayes? Nope. Just one of many offensive posts the host continues to make to display hatred for his nation and American values in general. If you’re still wondering if mainstream media is really progressive or not, just take a look at this post from Hayes. You have all the evidence you need.
