Filmmaker Spike Lee on Sunday spoke briefly with Rev. Al Sharpton about Donald Trump and the premiere of his new film “BlacKkKlansman,” which Lee acknowledged he wanted to be released on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” tally.

Trump on Saturday reference “the riots in Charlottesville a year ago,” but failed to reference Heather Heyer, who was killed when a white supremacist ran his car into a crowd of counter-protesters.

“I knew people would be talking about it,” Lee said. “I wanted to shed light on what happened, and also, reverend, what that guy [Trump] did. He had a chance—I don’t say his name, I call him ‘Agent Orange,’ shout out to Busta Rhymes, he came up with that—he had a chance to condemn hate, racism, the alt-right, the klan, neo-Nazis, and he didn’t do it.”

“And in fact, he made a moral equivalence,” Sharpton acknowledged.

“Yes, he tried to balance it,” Lee said. “He’s not saying anything about Heather Heyer, who lost her life, so I mean it is another example of who this guy is. And it is not even up for debate anymore. We know who this guy is.”

Time magazine editor Anand Giridharadas criticized MSNBC host Chris Matthews over the weekend for his alleged bias against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Giridharadas remarks came after Matthews compared Sanders' win in Nevada to a Nazi invasion.

"Last night was a historic win that I think a lot of us are still struggling to understand," Giridharadas explained. "It's historic because we may be seeing that we are paddling through a bend of a river in history here. Something is happening in America right now that actually does not fit our mental models."

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."
