MSNBC Suggests Mail Bomb Suspect Reads Drudge Report & Fox News

"I'm talking like people who follow the Drudge Report and Fox News and stuff it's that sort of circle."

MSNBC’s Ben Collins suggested that person responsible for the mail-bomb scare that has targeted top officials in the Democratic Party, as well as CNN and actor Robert De Niro, probably reads the conservative news website the Drudge Report on Thursday.

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle began the segment with Collins by highlighting an image of the device sent to former CIA Director John Brennan. On the device, there appears to be an image of a parody ISIS flag that has been circulating on the internet since 2014 as a meme.

NBC News reported on the parody flag on Wednesday:

“The print-out appears to show a parody flag that replaces Arabic characters with the silhouette of three women in high heels, and a middle inscription reading “Get ‘Er Done” — which is the catchphrase of standup comedian Larry the Cable Guy.”

Ruhle asked Collins to walk her through what this all means for the ongoing investigation.

Collins noted that the image basically appears to be an ISIS flag. “But instead of the Arabic script, there’s like fake naked ladies on there, and it says ‘get ‘er done’ on it,” he said.

“What does that mean?” Ruhle asked.

“It’s a Larry the Cable Guy joke. It’s like, not that sophisticated. This is not a smart thing, it’s a troll is what this is,” Collins responded. “It’s meant to sort of symbolize that he’s on one [political] side. This is from a conservative meme parody website from 2014.”

Collins added that this is a very obscure meme that didn’t get a lot of traction.

Ruhle asked Collins about the group that created the meme and what they represent.

“It’s just some guy really. It’s a guy in Scottsdale, Arizona who made a meme in 2014. It’s been around conservative web forums, not like young people [forums],” Collins said. “I’m talking like people who follow the Drudge Report and Fox News and stuff like that. It’s that sort of circle.”
