MSNBC host Kasie Hunt appeared to welcome the vicious assault of Republican Senator Rand Paul when she slipped up and said the attack, which left Paul with six broken ribs and a damaged lung, was her "favorite story".
Paul was assaulted earlier this month by his neighbor, 59-year-old Rene Boucher, while he was mowing his lawn in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Initial reports suggested the attack was provoked by a dispute over Paul's poor yard maintenance, although this was discredited when other neighbors said the Pauls were known for keeping their property clean and tidy.
Focus then shifted to Boucher's political beliefs when it was discovered he was an ardent socialist who had expressed vehement hatred of Donald Trump on social media.
While discussing the story, MSNBC's Kasie Hunt came out with a bizarre line.
