MSNBC test card reads ‘Trash man’ right after Trump’s Afghanistan speech
Host Rachel Maddow was discussing Trump's remarks when the feed was cut, however, there was a slight delay in returning to full screen of the studio coverage which is when the conspicuous title was displayed on-air.
A test card is a signal broadcast when a transmitter is active but no program actually appears on the feed. Many were clearly amused at the apparent “technical difficulties.”
As could be expected, however, Trump proponents were quick to call MSNBC out for the perceived slight against the POTUS.
Maddow took to Twitter to explain that the whole incident was a simple misunderstanding.
