In his 11th Hour time slot after the ABC debate on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams caused wailing and gnashing of teeth from the Greenpeace gang when he questioned whether the debate tilted too far left on guns and "green jobs," which he said was an insult to blue-collar voters, that fossil fuels will be banned, and then there are promises of green jobs on the horizon...somewhere.

BRIAN WILLIAMS: Nicolle Wallace, let's talk about guns, and let's talk about the way Democrats talk about guns. I also note we have a former senator from the state of Missouri here with us [Claire McCaskill]. Guns, red meat, Ford F-150s, if they're looking to get back that Democratic voter that might have voted for Obama and then went for Donald Trump. The blue collar voters who are insulted when Democrats come to town and say, "Don't worry, you are all going to get green jobs," -- No, they're not. Where are the green jobs? That's not gonna happen.

Wallace - Skepticism - Everything - Jobs - Gun

Wallace was clearly uncomfortable with the green-jobs skepticism: "I'm not going to take on everything, green jobs, but let me try to take on the gun question." She thought the Parkland kids (well, the leftist ones) were changing the debate......or were they?

WILLIAMS: It is changing.

WALLACE - Folks - Interviews - Parkland - Kids

WALLACE: -- with some folks that you've done some incredible interviews with, the Parkland kids. And guns are not -- gun control isn't the political third rail for Democrats that it used to be. It just isn't, and that's why you see Walmart and other big retailers --

WILLIAMS: Walgreens, taking on gun control.
