By now, everyone knows CNN’s Rick “Ritalin” Sanchez is an unwatchable idiot but this stunt firmly elevates the cable anchor to Glenn Beck status.
Shortly after the 8.8-magnitude temblor, fears grew about a tsunami hitting Hawaii, and that’s when Sanchez displayed a map of South America and went into overdrive.
“And this is Hawaii,” he said, pointing to the Galapagos Islands, some 500 miles off the coast of Ecuador. The actual Hawaiian islands are another 4,000 miles northwest of where Sanchez indicated. The bottle blonde female co-host agreed with Sanchez placing Hawaii off the coast of South America.
In another bizarre performance during Saturday’s coverage, Sanchez asked a tsunami expert to explain how much “nine meters” is.
“Nine meters in English is what?” Sanchez asked.
Nine meters is roughly 27 feet.
