In a sit-down interview alongside Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) told Kasie Hunt of MSNBC’s “Kasie DC” that he is “feeling the Bern” in regards to the failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate advocating for the United States to get out of the war in Yemen.

Meacham: Chief Justice Roberts Has ‘Moral Obligation’ to Speak Out Against Trump

Thursday on MSNBC, historian Jon Meacham discussed President Donald Trump’s feud with Chief Justice John Roberts, and said Roberts has a “moral obligation” in this current era to speak out against the president if he sees something wrong. “In an extraordinary time, a chief justice, head of a coequal branch, product of divided sovereignty that the framers saw was essential, I think has a kind of moral obligation if he sees something, to say something, and I think that it’s not bad for the system to have the chief justice weigh…

The murder of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October prompted much debate about the writer’s past affiliations and ideological inclinations. Responding to President Donald Trump’s Tuesday statement on the killing, Katy Tur of MSNBC falsely claimed Khashoggi was never a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but he indisputably was a member and a lifelong proponent of its Islamist ideals. Acknowledging this truth does not in any way condone his death at the hands of Saudi agents. Tur’s point was that everyone who mentions Khashoggi’s…

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough lit into President Donald Trump for “playing the racist card” and lining up with “some of the most abhorrent regimes in the 20th century.” “This last week, let’s just be really blunt about it, it’s why Republicans are scared of him right now. It’s been race. He’s been playing the racist card. He said, ‘I’m a nationalist.’ David Duke comes out the next day saying, ‘Thank you.
