MSNBC Host: ‘White Supremacists’ Celebrating ‘Little Murderous White Supremacist’ Rittenhouse
In one of multiple segments of The Cross Connection covering Friday’s not guilty verdict in Kenosha, Cross expressed her frustration with and alarm at members of the GOP celebrating Rittenhouse.
“I find these people disgusting, Elie, I’m disgusted at what I’m seeing,” she said, referring both to Matt Gaetz and to Rep. Paul Gosar for comments about hiring Rittenhouse as an intern. “It’s not just this trial, it’s other trials, but this in particular.”
“The fact that White supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous White supremacist, and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws, they represent the legislative branch of this country,” Cross said to Mystal. “What are we to make of that?”
“Welcome to the modern Republican party,” Mystal replied. “This is what these people want, and this is what a majority of White people vote for.”
