tv The Reid Out MSNBC November 10, 2021 4:00pm-5:00pm PST
skipped town will endorse big bird and mcfarland says it's no better than cruz so if you're keeping score, right now it is as you can see here big bird doing big things in the sesame streets and ted cruz all alone owning himself. that does it for us. as you can see, we take the news very seriously, joy reid is up next. >> very serious. i only have one question for you and it's a very important question, ari. where is groover? the world's greatest muppet groover? >> shoutout to groover, one would be great at softening the image and two is there room for
countchocula somewhere? >> this is the conversation we need to have. we got to get kermit involved. it's not easy being green. i got to move on. let's work on this. thank you very much. >> good luck. good evening, we begin "the reidout" with a stark warning the insurrection on our democracy is still alive and sadly thriving. what we saw play out on january 6th was just the beginning. the house select committee investigates what happened at the capitol and events that transpired behind closed doors, the slow rolling insurrection is unfolding in front of our very eyes and we should be concerned. the attacks on our democracy are happening state by state with republicans taking steps to allow them to fraudulently claim victory in future elections. at least 19 states have passed new laws this year making it harder for you to vote. that includes making it harder to register, restricting absentee and mail in voting and shortening early voting periods.
then there is fear mongering over issues of race and boogie men like critical race theory to scare particularly white voters towards the gop. we saw how that played out in virginia and see republicans trying to jerry bander their way into more seats. as of now, it's basically an apartheid democracy where the republican control senate passed a map giving republicans nearly 6 0% of the seats even though the democrats won the state with a nearly even partisan split in 2020. if somehow democrats are able to overcome all of that and win, republicans are setting themselves up to simply reverse those victories by allowing themselves to put they are people this charge of elections especially in places with a lot of black and brown voters like fulton county, georgia. this is happening for one reason, their unquenchable thirst for power. if republicans gain control of the house next year you better believe one of the first moves
is to end any investigation into january 6th and speaking of that investigation, despite trump's repeated effort to bury potential evidence, he once again finds himself on the losing end with a federal judge rejecting his attempt to withhold his records from the house select committee. and this has got to sting. the judge wrote presidents are not kings and the plaintiff is not president. and with a series of new subpoenas that this week, the committee needs to make sure trump's people will cooperate. steven miller is looking to follow his lead. why does this matter? this should be about consequences. if the department of justice decides not to bring contempt charges against bannon why would any other person compile with the subpoenas that and for those arrested for the january 6th attack, the consequences quite frankly have been pretty mild. how can we prevent another january 6th from happening? the vice chair of the january 6th committee liz cheney laid out the threat that this country
is now facing. >> at this moment when it matters most, we are are also confronting a domestic threat that we've never faced before. a former president who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our constitutional republic aided by political leaders who have made themselves willing hostages to this dangerous and irrational man. >> with me now is former federal prosecutor, olivia troy, former senior aide to mike pence and director of the accountability project and msnbc counter terrorism and intelligence analyst. i want to read a little bit of the letters sent to kaley mcelderry -- kaley. you made multiple public statements about fraud in the
november 2020 election echoed by insurrectionists and that she popped out to join mr. trump as he walked the attack on the u.s. capitol. miller saying you were aware of and participated in efforts to spread false information about voter fraud and efforts to encourage the legislation to alter the outcome of the 2020 election and appointing alternate slates. here is how steven miller reacted to that on fox news. >> i haven't received any documents, laura, or any communication at all. what i'll say is this, it's just an attempt and you know this as well as anybody to distract from the horrific failures of the biden presidency and. >> so that means no, you're not going -- >> one more attempt to change the subject. >> you're not going to be showing up to testify in this so-called select committee. >> first, i don't even have the documents, laura. >> you're not going to show up
laura says. if republicans don't believe subpoenas that apply to them, we've fallen out of the law. if bannon is not held to such app account people kaley mcelderry nay knee don't have to compile. >> you can't decline and here is the problem. we're in a holding pattern, joy because we're on day 20 of the steve bannon indictment watch and congress being a co-equal branch of government is waiting on the executive bravrch -- branch, i've been saying all along as have members of congress, congress needs to take the bull by the horns, use its own lawful power of inherent
contempt and bring steve bannon, you know, to justice. lock him up. detain him until he testifies there by purging the contempt. steve bannon will have the keys to the cell in his hand. all he has to do is testify and the problem is it feels like we've lost sight about the difference between criminal contempt and inherit contempt. criminal contempt is designed to punish somebody that's committed the crime of contempt of congress. that crime is complete and steve bannon ought to be prosecuted. inherent contempt is designed to compel testimony, the testimony that the house select committee so desperately needs so we can ensure that this doesn't happen again. they have the power. they need to use it. >> you know, olivia, the thing that should concern everyone, there is a laxity that it feels like there is at the doj. you know some of these people.
isn't it the case that they are most likely simply waiting for what they believe will happen because they are engineering for it to happen that they cannot lose, right, in 2022, they are sort of trying to bio engineer republican victories across the country such that they get back control of at least the house because the minute they get back control of the house, people like kayleigh mcenany and mccarthy, they're going to wipe this insurrection -- insurrection, they're going to wipe away the investigation. they can end the investigation. all they need is power. this feels like a setup, right? they think they can simply avoid justice by taking overall of the machinery and making sure that justice disappears. you know these people. is that how they think? >> absolutely. they are dragging their feet and they are going to slow roll the process as much as possible and obstruct it because that is what they want and they're hoping that people don't move fast
enough. they know how this works. i watched these people firsthand. i know how they passed the child separation stuff. i saw them do horrible things and executive orders they worked on and they knew the work arounds and legality things and knew what i watched happening with the first impeachment and how they behaved and the types of tactics they used are being repeated today and they though exactly what they're doing and they know if they hold on, they will be in power and this investigation won't matter. it's unfortunate. it's a detriment to national security because we need to get to the bottom of this. there are so many questions left to ask. so many answers and so many gaps that would really benefit the homeland security enterprise. that's the other aspect of this. there is accountability and also preventing this from happening again but they don't care about that. they don't care about our democracy, the constitution, the rule of law. americans, all they care about is themselves, covering for themselves and this one man
sitting in florida eating cheeseburgers trying to indicate everything. >> malcolm, it's sort of autocracy 101 that the autocrats party is not subject to the laws. right? the laws don't apply to them. and so if you have a political party that at this point believes that they can simply steal enough elections and rig enough elections for themselves, such that no one can hold them accountable, then reintroduce the auto cat and put them in power or whoever they want to make president, they're tired of the orange guy down there and simply control the process, that means we're an insurrectionist society period because you already have it -- i can't imagine any other time in my life when a sitting member of congress would post a video making mockery of killing the president of the united states with swords and of harming or killing another member of congress, which is what this person did, paul gosar whose own family finds him unfit to hold
public office, nothing is going to happen to him, right? he's able to do that. kathy griffin got tracked down by secret service for doing a joking meme of trump. this guy is a member of congress. this is where we are. your thoughts, malcolm? >> well, glen and olivia are both right. what we're seeing here is i think we're using the wrong word and you'll have to apologize if i keep emphasizing this word. we are not in a slow rolling insurrection. the insure recollection has happened. we're in the slow rolling insurgency and that is a series of insurrections, political actions, battling and taking the fights off of the halls of power, moving them into the states and into the streets through populous movement or through political orcreate chao government to seize power and never give it back and that's
where we're going. so you're analogy saying come next november if the republicans take the house of representatives, you will see not just these investigations, they're not going to end. they're going to be disappeared as if nothing ever happened. you had marjorie taylor greene and others go to the d.c. jail this week going along tagging along with another crew that was making a visit there and referring to the people who have been held there on felony charges for attacking law enforcement for destroying, attempting to destroy the capitol and over throw america democracy calling it the patriot wing of the jail. you know, isis had patriot wings. al qaeda had places which we referred to as terrorists finishing schools where all they became was a hard core leadership of future insurgents or terrorist groups. what we have here is the political wing of the republican
party now coddling and embracing the very people that attacked democracy if this -- if the election is lost next year, the republicans take the house of representatives, those people will become your future, you know, your future congressmen, will become your future leaders in the republican party and host on other conservative news channels calling themselves political prisoners. you will see the end of representative american democracy. they will seize power. they will not give power back. >> and that is -- it seems clear to me, i'm not sure it clear to the democrats and olivia, you know these people. i go back to you because you know them. we seen this happen before. the tea party was out there hanging barack obama, president obama and having "n" word signs and just blatant racism calling him a monkey and evening else and next thing you knew, tea party people are all over congress. they're members of congress.
they're part of the main stream of the republican party. the tea party movement was the old version. they're totally main stream. do you believe that at some point -- i mean, there are half a dozen that have been elected. the future of the party essentially is the insurgents, the insurrectionists. they will become the main leadership of the party at some point, right? >> that's certainly the direction we're seeing. there is no room for anyone that stands for anything that has told the truth or actual policy like what happened to the republicans this week that voted in favor of the -- >> death threats. >> look what happened to them. look at the death threats and look at their own members. their own members of the party elected officials releasing their personal information but they know it's going to lead to threats. they know it's going to lead to the vitriel and yet kevin mccarthy stands there and enables it and coddles it and
does nothing to put a stop to it same with gosar. we know he is one of the worst of the worst. he is unfit to be in office. many of these people are unfit to be in office but yet, here they are and my concern is that this movement, they have a movement behind them. they have supporters behind them. and if you don't actually start to call them out as a poll lit. >> caller: party and take a stand against them, you're actually main streaming them and then those numbers are growing and you're seeing these type of people run. these people are running right now for office for the midterms. these extremists candidates are going to be on the ballots. >> yeah. they're main streaming white nationalism, violence instead of politics. all of it. there is nothing happening to them. thank you-all very much. up next on "the reidout". >> you are already, you are -- i
was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant's post arrest silence. >> what in the world is going on with the judge in the murder trial of kyle rittenhouse? and president biden hits the road to promote his victory on inrastructure but what can he do for families facings. the subject of a new msnbc democracy and in the clown cars driving the wrong way.

outcomes look no further than the trial of kyle rittenhouse. he's accused of murdering two and wounding a third took to the stand in his own defense and the circumstances are build for an actual crt course. the white now 18-year-old faces an almost entirely white jury of his peers with the exception of one black man and then there is judge bruce shader who barred the prosecution from calling the people rittenhouse killed victims and barred evidence of rittenhouse posing with the proud boys and he failed to notify the court of changed address. in fact, the prosecution has been repeatedly ham strung but the judge at almost every turn into all that stepped rittenhouse himself today. giving the jury his best sweet innocent teen while describing the moment before he killed joseph rosenbaum. >> i look over my shoulder and
mr. rosenbaum, mr. rosenbaum was now running from my right side and i was cornered from -- in front of me with mr. zaminsky and there were -- [crying] there were three people right there -- >> if you need more time. [crying] >> at one point rittenhouse claimed that the initial victim used threatening language that he did not want to repeat even though he was caught on camera flashing a white power hand gesture. >> he was screaming -- he said
i'm going to cut your [ bleep ] hearts out and kill -- i'm not going to repeat the second word but kill you "n" words. >> during cross-examination judge shadr be rated the prosecutor questioning rittenhouse whether it was appropriate to use deadly force to protect property and the judge accused the lead prosecutor of improperly trying to introduce testimony and an hour later, the defense requested a mistrial with prejudice meaning no retrial saying the prosecution was attempting to provoke a mistrial. the judge took it under advicement after admonishing the prosecution once again. joining me is paul butler, form pros core tonight i felt like it was flash backs to george zimmerman. kyle rittenhouse saying this sort of really dramatic thing the person he shot supposedly said it sounded like a gangster
movie, you know, and then this whole thing of, you know, the whole breaking down and dry heaving in court was one thing we didn't see from zimmerman but making himself the victim and sort of making himself seem more innocent, which zimmerman trial also featured. and the judge sort of almost like it was his dad. like, you know, i don't think -- i mean, since the zimmerman trial, i haven't seen anything like it. it seems similar to me. >> today the jurors saw what must be the greatest performance of kyle rittenhouse's life. he was well prepared by his defense attorneys to disrupt his image as a trigger happy vigilante who went on a shooting rampage at a black lives matter protest. on the stand he was polite and deliberate. when rittenhouse got emotional l, it may have come across to the jury as a genuine expression
of remorse or on the other hand crocodile tears designed to e show sympathy but rittenhouse had most of the risk. he probably advanced his own defense in front of the jury. >> i mean, if you really do get a jury of your peers, he's 18, a teenager. the defense managed to construct the jury that could be his uncles and aunts and his parents, right? where they can look at him and see perhaps their own son and that was what felt like his testimony was designed to do today, to take away all of the stuff about him throwing the white power sign and posing with the proud boys and not telling where he was living when he was supposed to. that stuff, the things that were interesting were when the jury was not present, all the times that the judge was literally berating the prosecutor saying he couldn't bring in evidence that spoke to perhaps kyle
rittenhouse saying he wanted to hurt people. i mean, it was clear, was it as clear to you as it was to me that this judge decided that kyle rittenhouse is in the right here? >> it clear that the defense wants the jury to look at rittenhouse as a boy scout who was just in kenosha to render aid and earlier helped scrub graffiti off churches. most of the judge's ruling favored the defense and that portrait so the judge with hard evidence of a previous occasion rittenhouse beat up a teenage girl. that's on video. the judge won't let the jury know that. before this episode, rittenhouse saw some people he thought were shoplifting at a cvs and said man, i wish i could shoot those people. i judge won't let the jury know about that. on the bench, he yells at the prosecutors. some of the judge's rulings are consistent with how he handles
other cases but we know in this case conservatives like donald trump made rittenhouse a martyr and there are concerns the judge 's rulings and emotional outburst against the prosecutor are steering the jury towards an acquittal. >> he's charged with so many things. first-degree reckless homicide, recklessly endangering safety. i won't tell you-all of it. let me tell you one ore thing rittenhouse said i can't believe a black or brown kid getting away with saying, why he wanted an ar-15 in particular. >> you didn't pick out the ar-15 for any other reason? >> i thought it looked cool but no. >> you didn't pick it out because you wanted to go hunting with it, did you? >> no. >> you didn't pick it out because you were going to use it to protect your house, correct? >> correct. >> you picked it out because it looked cool? >> i thought it looked cool.
>> dream with me, paul. could any child of color, young person of color ever, ever, ever do that on a stand and get away with it? >> you already know, joy. of course not. this is white privilege on steroids. rittenhouse testified that after he shot all of these people he approached the cops and told them that he'd been involved in a shooting and the officers told him be careful so that you don't get pepper sprayed and go home. it's impossible to imagine that happening to a black or brown person. they would have been in handcuffs if they were lucky enough to survive that kind of encounter with cops. >> let me just remind people of the names of the victims. joseph rosenbaum was 36, anthony huber was 26, gaige grosskreutz
was injured. they need to remember those people, not the one on the stand crying today. up next, we need critical race theory in this country. president biden's big next task addressing inflation as he totes his success on infrastructure. more after the break. infrastru. more after the break recommended brand, helps keep baby's skin drier and healthier. so every touch will protect like the first. pampers to be a thriver with metastatic breast cancer means asking for what we want. and need. and we need more time. so, we want kisqali. women are living longer than ever before with kisqali when taken with an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant in postmenopausal women with hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer. kisqali is a pill that's significantly more effective at delaying disease progression versus an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant alone.

okay. unless you've been living under a rock your money isn't going as far as it used to with higher prices on gas and energy bills and the labor department said it at the highest level in 30 years that shouldn't be supper surprising in a pandemic in which family's financial resources are held up, penalty pent up with a chance to be spent and challenges for people to get back to work in key industries, the country is facing a drastic issue. here is how it was explained today. >> we're in the midst of a pandemic and all the disruptions. we have to remember this is the biggest shock economically worldwide since world war ii so last year lots of supplies were cut because demand plummeted, then this year there has been a
resurging of demand and some of those supply chain cuts, the oil production for example has not returned. >> people care about their pocketbooks so it's not surprising it's a significant political issue with biden's approval rating dropping as the economy itself remains strong and unemployment low. that's partially due to the republican talking point it's entirely biden's fault if your christmas presents are late. president biden addressed those concerns making it clear prices will go down and those shelves will be stocked thanks to the new infrastructure bill and administration's steps it's taking to work with ports and shipping companies. >> with the bill we passed last week and the steps we're taking to reduce bottlenecks at home and abroad, we're set to make significant progress. we're already in the midst of historic economic recovery and thanks to those steps we're taking, very soon we're going to see the supply chain start catching up with demand. so not only will we see more
record-breaking job growth, we'll see lower prices, faster deliveries, as well. >> joining me now is a democratic strateist juanita and dr. sacks. i want to start with you first. you did a great job explaining this morning but i want you to if you could reexplain for the audience. i think people see a huge disconnect when we report record low like 4.6% unemployment and the stock market looks good and in your life you're like wait, everything costs more why does this feel so bad? what is going on and why are we seeing this inflation? >> i'll try. this is a very confusing period for all of us. covid was a huge disruption to our lives and to the economy. last year when we had the shutdown starting around march
2020, incomes plummeted, jobs were lost, millions of people lost work so the government did a lot of things to keep people's incomes, the federal reserve, our central bank pumped up the money supplied and this was smart in that it prevented the closure from creating an on going economic collapse. now for awhile, people couldn't spend that much of the money because so much of the economy was closed so when you look at the saving rates, people put money into the bank account. they actually were able to save some of that money. they couldn't go out to restaurants. they couldn't go out, you know, as tourists or other things and so the saving rate shot up. now this year, there's been a rebound of spending because the economy is opened up again as the vaccine coverage has taken place and people are out spending a fortune now, not a
fortune but out spending a lot of money including what they saved before. now, when last year the shutdowns occurred, not only is there a rebound of spending but some of the supply side has not recovered and one very notable point, the biggest source of the increase of the prices is ennear gee. what happened there? last year you might remember there was a day when the price of oil fell not only to zero but negative because there was more oil than people were using and there was no place to store it. so the price of oil basically fell to zero. the big oil producers mainly in the middle east cut their production tremendously. now this year with the rebound, they didn't increase the production back to the previous level so oil prices are soaring so people are seeing this at the
gas pump also. you know, this is hard. one thing i'll say is the port congestion, all the rest is part of it for sure but we've not had a disruption to our lives of this scale and economic disruption since world war ii. since we're in a society that's very short term now what are we going to do now? everyone is extremely upset but i think if you take a step back, what's amazing is we did not go into an economic collapse. we went into a closure and then a recovery thank god and that was through a lot of very active government policy. fine tuning this, well, no, we're still bouncing around getting out of covid. we're not done with covid yet so all of this means that normal economic management is not simple. >> well, and the thing is, it's not simple and thank you for
explaining that dr. sacks because juanita it's not politically helpful. people are very short term in the way they view politicians what have you done for me lately? they got shots and checks and now prices are up, i'm mad. the prices are showing biden is facing challenges in the polls and republicans are so leaned into taking biden down, that they're literally like some of the base are calling in death threats to anybody thatinfa str. what would you say the biden administration ought to be doing differently in the way they talk about this because it's hard to explain this as dr. sacks just said. >> right, joy. it hard to explain that nobody planned on a pandemic. they need to go out and talk about the tangible benefits. this is making sure people have what they need and they can see what they need. so what biden, what he did with the american rescue plan, he said it about shots in arms and
checks into accounts. it needs to be that level of understanding. when he said today look, it's about clearing up the ports so you stores can be stocked, best believe as people start holiday shopping, they will look at stocking the stores and the same thing about good paying jobs, access to broad band and cutting costs. these are the things that the white house needs to get distilled down into their language so it's fully accessible to laymen because i appreciate the explanation about supply chain but regular folks say i'm struggling now. ron klain named that with nicole wallace today when he said tuesday it was about more and that's exactly right. politics is about getting the voters that progress. >> and the problem is and i think dr. sacks will agree with me on this, fixing things invalve spending government money and people get upset about that because even though they need the things, they don't like it when the government spends money so they want the government to somehow give them the things, fix the bridges and
roads and do the things but don't spend money because they get weirded out about the spending. dr. sacks very briefly, they got to spend money. the infrastructure bill plus the other bill that would really help people get back to work, i mean, they need to do both those things, right? >> i think one of the hardest parts of understanding all of this is that there is the short term adjustment and solving the pandemic issues but then things like infa structure and things like the build back better are about our lives, in the next week but over the next five, ten, 15 years. i wish, i hope americans can have a little bit of foresight to look ahead and in terms of paying for this, the real basic point that needs to be understood, the rich people have gotten so rich in recent years including during the pandemic. >> yeah, they going to space. >> six people, six americans
have a trillion dollars of wealth. 20 americans have $2 trillion on wealth and the congress is saying oh, we don't want to touch them. we don't want to tax them but if we don't -- we need to pay for this stuff but the companies with all the money and the rich people with all the wealth need to chip in. >> they got to do it. >> that's very important. >> absolutely. i wish we had more time. we need to do a whole show on this stuff. thank you both very much. appreciate you both. important stuff, guys. a shocking documentary explores a community near lose -- los angeles with a high cancer rate among kids. parents say it's due to a nuclear research lab close. we'll be right back. lab close we'll be right back. parents say it's due to a nuclear research lab close. we'll be right back. o a nuclear research lab close

was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and while at the hospital she noticed others lived similar to her with cancer in san fernando. it details the journey of learning those families all live directly downhill from a nuclear research lap with a history of mishandling waste and an accident covered up for years. >> i met a family that said oh, we live of your street. and we live on a long boulevard that's three miles but she said my neighbor had the exact same brain cancer my son had and there were two of them, neighbors plus my daughter, that's three on the same street and for a long time, we couldn't find the connection and it was about a year after that that someone mentioned for the first time the field lab. i never heard of it. we had to start wrestling with the fact maybe our children's
cancers could have been avoided. maybe other children were in danger. maybe our government hadn't protected us the way they should have. >> melissa grass roots coordinator joins me now. what terrifying story, melissa. thank you for being here. your daughter's name is grace. how did you first start noticing that there was a problem? >> well, when she was 4 years old she's a very active girl and so the bruises were normal but they started to look like someone had done it. it was so dark and she got tired and our daughter never slows down. she's driven by a motor. i knew something was wrong but i would have never guessed it would have been cancer. >> so there is a study in 2007 that showed this is a 60% higher rate of cancer for those like you who are living close to the
santa s usa na lab. when you put it together, you and these other parents realized this is tied to where we live and this lab, when you raised that issue, what is the response? >> well, i mean, it was hard for me to want to admit that a choice that i had made by wanting to move had somehow possibly caused her cancer. when i started bringing that up to the community, i was told it was an urban legend or a hysterical mom trying to justify my daughter's cancer or trying to make trouble and stir up drama. it wasn't until we were able to start to bring the reports and studies to the public that people started to realize this really is a big issue and the coverup really had been happening. but that's hard. that's hard to accept. >> yeah, i mean, the thing is everything then feels like it
sort of starts to cascade. you have the woolsey fire in 2018. the radio active levels neighborhoods during that 2018 fire, which started at the con contaminated lab. everything that happens affects your children and your neighborhoods' children, it's doubling and tripling down. at some point, has anyone offered to try to make you all whole and help you out with at least the health care bills or do anything to try to help your families? >> well, it's the regulating agency out here, the department of toxic substances under california, they were meant to enforce this. this signed historic agreements
in 2010 to do an almost unprecedented in the nation sort of cleanup. it was meant to be done by 2017. it hasn't been done. those who are supposed to be protecting us, enforcing the cleanup, our government isn't doing it right now. they essentially abandoned us. we are fighting boeing, nasa and the department of energy. it's difficult having your child with cancer. we buried several of our friends. the emotional toll, financial toll, it's been so much on my family. then on top of it, having to fight our own government to get the cleanup. some days it just doesn't feel real. some days i feel like i must be living in russia. >> i know you have a petition to clean up the area. how is grace doing? >> thank you for asking.

opportunity to address systemic racism in our infrastructure. >> i'm surprised that some people were surprised when i pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the purpose of diviing a white and black neighborhood, or an underpass such that a bus carrying bus kids to a beach in new york was designed too low to pass by, but that obviously reflects racism that went into design choices. i don't think we have anything to lose by confronting that simple reality. >> naturally, right wingers caught all the nasty feels. ted cruz took a break from bashing big bird. ron desantis and carlson had their say. >> i heard weird stuff trying to
make this about social issues. a road is a road. >> roads can't be racism. they are inanimate objects. they are not alive. pete buttigieg didn't know it. >> actually, secretary buttigieg does know what he is talking about. he was talking about new york planner robert moses. moses instructed a top aid to build bridges on his new parkways too low for buses to pass because he wanted to prevent them to have access to jones beach state park. "the washington post" notes there's dispute about that which caro got from the aide. moses enacted racist policies that drove black and brown people out of theirhomes.
moses said, highways must go through cities, not around them. he did that. bulldoing black, jewish and puerto rican homes for his expressway. that racist infrastructure design can be found in cities all over this country. in syracuse, new york, the black 15th ward was razed for an overpass for interstate 91. there are examples in ron desantis' backyard. in the tampa area, communities founded by the formerly enslaved were demolished for an interstate. pete was right. the same republicans who rail against this are ignoring the
racism. maybe they didn't learn about it in school, which is why it's important to teach about institutional racism. for that, cruz, desantis and the ignorant folk who are trying to erase the past, you are tonight's absolute worst. see you back tomorrow night with jordan klepper. don't miss it. "all in with chris hayes" starts now. tonight, on "all in" -- >> i didn't want to kill anybody. >> why are you shooting at someone with an ar-15 at close range? >> kyle rittenhouse takes the stand. >> you didn't pick out the ar-15 for any other reason? >> i thought it looked cool. but no. >> tonight, from columbine to sandy hook to kenosha, the radical gun culture that brought us to this moment. countdown to document
