You're Welcome: We Watched MSNBC Last Night So You Didn't Have to

On Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the three cable networks went live until 2:00 a.m. Eastern following the President’s State of the Union address just as they’ve been prone to do for major political events. As NewsBusters documented, it was a trainwreck over on CNN and MSNBC. 

At midnight Eastern, MSNBC followed usual form for big news nights such as debates, election nights, and presidential speeches in somehow allowing Chris Matthews to host a late-night edition of Hardball. To see last year's version, go here.

The following five slides constitute some of the silliest series of hot takes from that hour, presented in chronological order.
