MSNBC Forced to Cut Off Interview After Fire Alarm Goes Off

vlcsnap-2016-06-01-15h02m51s469During an interview with Libertarian vice presidential candidate Bill Weld, an alarm suddenly went off in MSNBC’s studios, forcing them to cut the interview short.

“Governor, I’m having a little problem with a siren going off right now,” host Jose Diaz-Balart said. “But let me see if we can work on this. And it‘s live television, I apologize for that.”

Diaz-Balart and Weld soldiered on, with Weld criticizing Donald Trump and comparing his policies to the Holocaust and the Soviet Union. But it didn’t take long before the sirens began again.

“Governor, I’m still having a problem with this audio,” Diaz Balart said. “We’re going to take a short break. We’ll be right back.”

To their credit, MSNBC producers quickly thought up a solution; Steve Kornacki finished the interview broadcasting out of another studio.
