‘Hoo boy’! Mark Pryor’s Ebola flub inspires ‘perfect’ potential GOP ad [video]


MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt recently caught up with Arkansas Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor, where she asked him if he thought the White House has handled the Ebola crisis effectively thus far. That’s a fair question, considering that this past August, Pryor made Ebola a campaign issue. It’s also a pretty straightforward question. Unless you’re Mark Pryor, apparently:

Hoo boy. https://t.co/AJK4prI3Jk #ARSen

Transcript (forgive us for the weird punctuation — Pryor was having a hell of a time getting his words out):

Hunt: Do you think the Obama administration has done an appropriate job handling the Ebola crisis?

Pryor: Uuuuuuuummmmmm … I would say that … it’s, uh, it’s hard to know, uh, because, uh, I haven’t heard the latest briefing on that to know all the det— I mean, I read the paper and all, but my impression is that we have people over there, both from CDC and other medical-type people, and even some engineers to try to build, um, you know, medical facilities. That’s what they need over there. They need the medical infrastructure …

Hunt: Have we been aggressive enough in helping treat it?

Pryor: Uuuuuummmmmm … again, I have to see the latest numbers.

OK, now it’s our turn to say “uuuuummmmmmmmmm.” What the heck was that?

By far the most educated response on Ebola I have seen “@guypbenson: Hoo boy. https://t.co/x0U544Favi #ARSen

Sorry, Mark. Not even that selfie could redeem your performance.

But it could be great for Pryor’s GOP challenger Tom Cotton:
