MSNBC montage highlights conservatives’ 'comically preposterous' spin on SVB collapse
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is relentlessly mocking conservatives for their latest farfetched claim about the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.
On Tuesday, March 14, Hayes pushed back against conservatives' idea of the collapse being the result of the financial institution's "wokeness." According to Hayes, the claims are "comically preposterous."
“Folks, we’ve got an outbreak of woke banks,” Hayes quipped.

The MSNBC host went on to share a montage featuring a number of conservative figures, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters, sharing their take on the fall of Silicon Valley Bank.
Most of them echoed remarks along the same lines, placing blame on President Joe Biden, Democratic lawmakers and policies aimed at improving diversification.
However, Hayes pushed back to offer clarity about the situation as he pointed out one glaring fact.
“To be clear, this was the bank that Peter Thiel, the big Trump backer, the big billionaire right-wing dude, his funds put their money there,” noted Hayes. “This was the bank of the Silicon Valley tech bros. This bank, the woke bank?”
