On Tuesday’s “Hardball” on MSNBC, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson lashed out at conservative pundits, including author and conservative commentator Ann Coulter, fellow Washington Post columnist George Will and Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume for mocking the #BringBackOurGirls Twitter campaign employed by the White House.
“Look, these people are idiots, OK,” Robinson said. “No, they don’t understand how the world works today. You know, Boko Haram, they are checking their Twitter accounts. They are seeing what’s happening on social media and what’s happening worldwide. And George Will obviously doesn’t understand that. Brit Hume doesn’t understand that. They’re sitting there in their studios saying, ‘These darned kids!’ But, it’s just crazy. It’s ignorant at a certain point.”
