“Thieves! Fire! Murder!” This exclamation uttered by Radagast the Brown in the movie The Hobbit was not too far off from MSNBC’s Alex Wagner’s characterization of the GOP House Freedom Caucus members who opposed the McCarthy-Biden debt ceiling deal on her eponymous show on Tuesday night.

Wagner claimed the “Far-right Republicans” were going to “hold the U.S. economy hostage” and “would blow up the pretty fragile U.S. economy, they would tank the stock market, and push hundreds of thousands of people onto the unemployment line.”
