MSNBC skewers Democrats for Steve Beshear response

After Trump finished up Tuesday night, former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear delivered the Democratic response. MSNBC commentators were looking for someone else:

Steve Schmidt on MSNBC: "The Democratic Party is at its lowest point of power in this country since the 1920s. And the Democratic response was made by a 72-year-old, retired, two-term governor from Kentucky [Steve Beshear]. Not by Kamala Harris. Not by Kristen Gillibrand. Not by the Castro brothers. Not by anyone who has a future in the actual Democratic Party. Just amazing ineptitude. ... And on a personal note, I do wish the hostages behind him well."
