Watch: The Most Awkward Moment Ever on MSNBC?

As he prepares to leave the Justice Department, Attorney General Eric Holder agreed to sit down with MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry for an interview.

As you’d expect from a progressive network interviewing a progressive AG, the interview was long on easy questions. It looked like plain sailing for the soon-to-retire lawman.

But the interview took a weird turn, when Harris-Perry asked America’s top cop to “quack like a duck.”

Yes, you read that right.

Having scored a major interview with one of the most controversial figures in the country, Harris-Perry choose to ask him to do an impression of a bird. Even AG Holder couldn’t hide his embarrassment in front of one of his biggest cheerleaders in the media.

Just listen to the way Harris-Perry giggles like a school girl when Holder refuses, and remember it the next time you read that the liberal network’s ratings are in the toilet.
