MSNBC’s Mika accuses Bill Barr and Donald Trump of literally putting her family in danger

Published

on

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Friday grew angry when discussing the pre-trial release of Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Hasson, a white nationalist who was accused of plotting to kill prominent Democrats and members of the media who have been critical of President Donald Trump.

Even though investigators say that Hasson had been stockpiling weapons while creating a “kill list” of political opponents, prosecutors are not planning to charge him with either terrorism or murder. This opened the door for Judge Charles Day of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland to allow Hasson to be released on bail.

Brzezinski said the decision to release Hasson was outrageous and she pointed the finger at both President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr for not charging Hasson with domestic terrorism.

“These are the things that you find after a massacre and you go, ‘Oh, these are the warning signs, we should have noticed them,'” she said. “I say this as the wife of someone who is on that list, so you may hear a little intensity in my voice, but I think Trump’s doing this! How can I not do that math in my mind that the attorney general is making a clear decision here to make sure the lives of people who are being targeted continue to be in danger!”

WATCH: Civil rights icon John Lewis drops the hammer on Trump — and has no qualms about calling his remarks racist

Published

on

On Tuesday, the fallout continued from remarks President Trump made telling four freshman congresswomen -- and women of color -- that they should go back to their own countries.

While some prominent Republicans criticized the president, they stopped short of calling his comments racist.

MSNBC reported Tuesday that Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) -- a civil rights icon -- deemed Trump's remarks racist.

"This is not any, any way for the president of the United States of America to be attacking to be saying what he's saying about these young women," Lewis said.

"It's just dead wrong. We must use everything in a nonviolent way to say that it's wrong."

Trump believes white nationalism is a winning strategy — because Fox News tells him so

Published

on

Donald Trump thinks white nationalism is going to win him the 2020 election. This much is clear. Trump's racist Twitter rant on Sunday — in which he suggested that four nonwhite congresswomen, three of whom were born in the United States, are "originally" from somewhere else and should therefore "go back" — might have seemed at first like a spontaneous eruption of racist rage from the simmering bigot in the White House.

Soon, however, it became clear that this was strategic. Trump thinks it's a winning move to echo the claims of David Duke and other white nationalists who believe the United States is for white people. He justified his racism by saying that "many people agree with me," and by continuing to rave on Twitter about how the real purveyors of "racist hatred" are those who look askance at his embracing the rhetoric of Stormfront and the KKK.

‘White supremacy is a hell of a drug’: columnist explains the GOP’s garbled response to Trump

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed comments he'd made telling four freshman congresswomen -- all American citizens and women of color -- to go back to their countries.

The comments set off a furor that the president was being outwardly racist.

“It's up to them. They can do what they want. They can leave, they can stay, but they should love our country,” the president told reporters Tuesday when he was asked about his remarks.

On CNN Tuesday, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali explained how Donald Trump's comments -- and his Republican counterparts' refusal to call them racist -- is rooted in a dangerous white supremacy, or terror at the "browning of America."
