MSNBC's Maddow left speechless when learning Trump plans to replace McMaster with someone more 'fun'
Host of 'The Rachel Maddow Show' on MSNBC.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow had much to say when reporting on breaking news President Donald Trump will soon replace his second national security adviser — but was left speechless upon learning the criteria behind one of his potential replacements.

After speaking with the Washington Post's Ashley Parker, the White House correspondent who broke the story on national security adviser H.R. McMaster's imminent departure, Maddow went on to discuss two people on the president's shortlist for his replacement.

In her report, the correspondent noted that Trump is considering "several" people to replace McMaster, including Bush White House staffer John Bolton and Keith Kellogg, who currently serves as the chief of staff of the National Security Council.

"Part of the reason Keith Kellogg is in contention to be national security adviser is because, in part, the president 'likes his company and thinks he is fun,'" Maddow said, quoting Parker's report.

The host then threw her hands up and went to commercial break.
