There is a sort of Neo-Confederate thread that runs through these sort of pro-gun movements and the NRA movement.— Joy-Ann Reid
The most grateful Joy-Ann Reid quotes to get the best of your day
Marco Rubio has felt the wrath of Chris Christie and proved that he has a glass jaw. And I think that the question is going to be could he withstand a similar barrage from Donald Trump, who is relentless in going after the people he thinks are a threat to him.
Google the phrase "the most hated man in America.
" And this guy is one of the first people to pop up. Martin Shkreli, aka Pharma Bro, a 32-year-old drug company entrepreneur and former hedge fund manager who has a lot of money and loves to talk about how he spends it.
Whether or not, you know, people think that Martin Shkreli is the worst person in the world, the reality is that he is the symptom or a larger problem in an pharmacology industry.
I think Rahm Emanuel is now defunct as any sort of a surrogate for Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump is accomplishing getting, particularly white, working-class voters, who are turned off by their own party.
I think that it was - Benjamin Netanyahu almost couldn`t help the Iran deal, but John Boehner sort of walked him into it as well.
I think that no one roiled American politics and sort of scrambled the left/right dynamic more 2015 year than Pope Francis.
The other theory is because Donal Trump is not been vetted and no attacks on him have really been tested by Republicans, that is an unknown. He might be a paper tiger if somebody would only go after him.
Donald Trump was, you know, obviously a very important businessman, billionaire, he was a reality show star and I think that he has had more success running for president than probably even he imagined.
There has been a fair amount of criticism of the DNC for letting this squabble between [Bernie] Sanders and [Hillary] Clinton campaigns spill out into the open.
Bernie Sanders campaign supporters feel that he is an outsider to the party, he`s not a Democrat, that he was unfairly treated, and the chair, you know, whether they admit it or not, they are on Hillary Clinton`s side.
While this is not a part of what Martin Shkreli`s being indicted for, there is sort of the overall picture of somebody who`s milking profits really off of patients who are poor in order to finance what at least what appears to be a lot of debt being built up in other businesses.
I think that Rahm Emanuel`s political career is going to be very difficult to revive after the mismanagement.
Pope Francis also I think was really pivotal in sort of sanctioning and giving that important cosign to the opening of Cuba.
There`s no greater risk to the Israeli position in Washington than to make itself a partisan issue.
The Democrats have done so poorly in red states and essentially been evacuated from the red - the entire red part of America particularly off year elections. But I guess they proved that all you need is a completely scandalized Republican opponent.
I think that behind the scenes the Pope [Francis] is seen as more of a religious figure, but obviously he is sort of a global political figure.
Between Pope Francis tour of the U.S. which I think was a triumph really for liberals, he really sort of for the first time in a long time made the Catholics sort of on the side of liberalism.
Campaigns and primaries can get ugly. There are always messy squabbles.
Having lived in Florida for as long as you did as well, Jeb Bush has never really been that great of a politician. He's benefited from a lot of good luck.He torched his own campaign in '94, he had a weak Democratic opponent in '98, he benefited from the Clinton boom and got out before the Bush bust.
That this is not a sense of innovation and competition increasing prices because some other company is coming in and competing with Martin Shkreli. This is literally a monopoly.
I think on the things - the issues that Pope Francis cares about - not just remaking the Church and in just sort of a more compassionate visage, but really on trying to move real policy.
Democrats in the contrast with Republicans, almost no matter which Republican is nominated. Because they are taking such similar positions.
I think it`s going to be an important policy, the opening of Cuba and I think political policy for the hemisphere.
I project that this next election - the 2016 election - if it is about anything thematically, it is going to be about that sense of rage and displacement among white working-class voters.
One of the reasons that Donald Trump cannot properly respond to what was an obvious proper response from an America president is the people in his government.
The military is such a hierarchical institution.
It's an institution where, if you are assaulted by a person senior to you, you're probably the person that's expendable and that's going to get in trouble.
Donald Trump is actually doing what Bernie Sanders was billed as doing.
He's doing new voters into the process.
I think in theory, Donald Trump could be a formidable candidate, right? The theory of him is, if he ignites working class white voters, he can put Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, states like Ohio in play for the Republicans.
What is the alt-right? It's a dressed-up term for white nationalism.
They call themselves white identitarianism. They say that the tribalism that's inherent in the human spirit ought to be also applied to white people.
As the refugee crisis unfolds across Europe, another is looming in our backyard.
The number of children crossing the southwest border unaccompanied has quietly surged more than a year after President [Barack] Obama referred to the problem as a quote "urgent humanitarian situation."
I have to say that Donald Trump is on probably about the 13th minute of fame.
What Martin Shkreli will end up if he does wind up going to prison.
I think that`s I think what shocks a lot of people, that this is perfectly legal.
It's not enough to keep winning seconds and thirds.
At some point, Ted Cruz has actually won on. [Marco] Rubio's got to actually win a state.
