Mitchell Fishes for Better Angle on Chattanooga Terrorist Did he enjoy 'hunting' or 'other small-town' activities? SHARE TWEET EMAIL BY: Blake Seitz July 17, 2015 1:39 pm MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell went fishing for a better angle Friday when she asked a former classmate of Chattanooga mass murderer Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez whether he enjoyed “hunting” and other “small-town Tennessee activity.” “Were guns a big part of activities—social or other activities?” Mitchell asked her interviewee abruptly. “What?” her interviewee responded. “Did he hunt, did he shoot?” Mitchell prodded. “Was that just part of small-town Tennessee activity?” “Um, he actually wasn’t one of the guys I heard about going hunting,” Abdulazeez’s classmate responded. “He wasn’t really that kind of guy.” Mitchell is a vocal opponent of the widespread availability of firearms.
