What were the brutal murders of four Americans in Benghazi if not an opportunity for the media to showcase their utter tactlessness? Today, MSNBC took a page from the comedy stylebook of Sally Kohn and The Daily Beast with this pathetic, tasteless attempt at “humor”:

Talk about lame.

He should care. It’s not even a good pun!

As Twitchy readers know, Stacey Newman, a Missouri state representative, disgustingly tried to turn four dead Americans into a punchline with a Benghazi “joke.” Actor James Woods was rightly infuriated and called her “despicable.

Dana Loesch also gave Ms. Newman the business.

Dana Loesch has a key question for the soulless Ms. Newman:

We won’t hold our breath for an answer. Because, “what difference does it make,” right Dems?

One of America’s finest makes a devastating point:

We thank you for your service, sir. It would behoove Ms. Newman to realize that men like you have fought and died for her right to run her mouth and expose her shameful moral bankruptcy. A joke? You are the joke, Ms. Newman.

SHAMEFUL: What this Dem senator said about Hillary Clinton, Benghazi is unbelievable. And vile [GIF]

It truly is horrible. Take a look at what Democrat Senator Cory Booker tweeted about Hillary Clinton and Benghazi:

Wow. Just … wow.

Shallow is actually a kind way of putting it. Does Sen. Booker realize how grossly insensitive and disgustingly flippant he is being? Four Americans lost their LIVES. But, hey. For Dems, life has no value. Hello, Planned Parenthood.

Citizens rightly gave him the business.

A reminder for Cory Booker, if he even cares:

Still think it’s awesome now, Sir? If so, please seek help. “Onward!”

And an exit question:

Hillary Clinton gives play-by-play of violent protests in Tunisia

“The ambassador and his team were desperate for help,” Hillary Clinton dramatically told the Select Committee on Benghazi today, recalling not the terrorist attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi but violent demonstrations in Tunisia.

Why was Clinton recalling the unrest in Tunisia? Because of that darn YouTube video that she and President Obama blamed for the “spontaneous” attack that killed four Americans. It just will not go away, so there must be some way to integrate it into the administration’s narrative.

Clinton recounted Tunisia as some sort of success story to counterbalance the debacle in Libya: “I called the president, President MarzoukiI said, Mr. President, please deploy your presidential guard, at least show that Tunisia will stand with the United States against these protestors over this inflammatory video. To his great credit and to my great relief, that is exactly what he did.”
