MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders, for reasons unknown to people besides him and his producer, chose to do a live feed from inside the Reno Guns & Range in Nevada on Tuesday, and he found his report on the Donald Trump campaign being almost completely drowned out by gunfire.
Host Andrea Mitchell threw to Sanders to discuss Trump’s lead in the Nevada polls heading into Tuesday night’s caucus.
“Well, there’s a lot of attention. I’m actually right now at Reno Guns & Range, and I put myself here because as you’ll see over my shoulder here, there’s lots of folks here who believe that the Second Amendment in this country is under attack,” Sanders said, as he put on safety goggles and earphones.
At that moment, multiple people at the range began firing different guns behind Sanders, making it almost impossible to make out what he was saying.
The following is a rough transcription of what Sanders said next.
(Bang) (Bang) (Bang) They say that the (Bang) short distance away (Bang) (Bang) Donald Trump (Bang) (Bang) (Bang) (Bang) (Bang) about protecting the Second Amendment (Bang) (Bang) (Bang) (Bang) All the Republicans (Bang) (Bang) support protecting the Second Amendment. Donald Trump (Bang) has said in speeches (Bang) the First Amendment and he supports the Second Amendment (Bang) (Large Bang) (Bang) (Bang) from the crowd when he says that. (Bang) (Bang) As we look at what Donald Trump has been doing (Bang) (Bang) Jeb Bush now, he’s focusing on Ted Cruz. (Bang) Saying in a tweet (Bang) Wow was Ted Cruz disloyal to his very capable director (Bang) used him as a scapegoat (Bang) like a dog (Bang) talking about (bang) fired his spokesman (Bang).
Mitchell laughed as Sanders’ report came to a close.
“Kerry, I’m afraid we could not hear most of that because the firepower was a little bit too great,” Mitchell said. “Sorry, we didn’t know you were going to be there today.”
