In the previous segment, Melvin opened the conversation with Dilanian with a question. He said: “How is the Trump administration handling the transition with the incoming Biden team, or is it not handling it, should we say, to some extent? This time it’s about our intelligence community. Ken, what have you learned, sir?
As Melvin spoke, Dilanian smiled at the camera, giving the impression that he was aware that he was on the air. Then after being asked what he had learned, Dilanian looked at his phone and said quietly, “Oh shit. F * ck “.
Many users took to Twitter to comment on the remarkable event. Maya Harris tweeted: “This just happened on @craigmelvin @MSNBC and it’s perfect in every way …”
Many took the oath as a response to the Trump administration’s efforts to block Biden’s team from the transition process. But, as explained above, Dilanian has since explained that he was expressing his frustration with a technical problem, not with the current political landscape.
