MSNBC’s Chris Hayes laid into Senate Republicans for what he called “seething theatrical contempt” for Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, a former Republican senator from Nebraska, earlier this week.

During Thursday’s confirmation hearing, Hagel responded to aggressive lines of questioning from Republican senators. At one point, he found himself in a¬†heated clash with Sen. John McCain¬†about the Iraq War.

On his Sunday show, Hayes called Hagel’s confirmation hearing “an omnidirectionally embarrassing debacle for everyone involved.” He added, “Republican senator after Republican senator threw questions at Hagel that even by the debased standards of a nominating hearing were the cheapest kind of demagoguery and bullying.”
