An MSNBC pundit invited ISIS to bomb Trump Tower Istanbul, a skyscraper owned by President Donald Trump in Turkey.
Malcolm Nance, who serves as a “counterterrorism analyst” on a variety of MSNBC shows, retweeted a picture of the seven-year-old Trump Tower Istanbul—adding his own caption: “This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property.”
Another Twitter user soon responded, quite prophetically, with a warning for Nance: “Be careful. It sounds like you’re encouraging it. [The media will] jump all over that.”
After receiving immediate blowback, Nance deleted the idiotic tweet—but not before it was screenshotted and spread across the internet.
Ironically, during the 2016 election, Nance was one of the loudest voices on the left calling President Trump out for inflammatory rhetoric about Middle Eastern refugees Islamic radicalism, which Nance claimed helped ISIS.
“We have already seen ISIS use Donald Trump in their propaganda, directly,” Nance said, in an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball” in July 2016. “I mean, I will go so far as to say Donald Trump is the ISIS candidate… They want someone to go off into space, and inflame the other 1.6 billion Muslims, so that they can come off the fence and join ISIS and other groups. He is really, really speaking off the hip.”
