100 thoughts on “Congresswomen Rebuke Trump’s ‘Racism’ And ‘Weak’ Leadership | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC”

  1. He is setting the tone for a country that is unsafe for all of us of any color that do not share his opinions Trump is pure evil running our country.His mental instability makes him extremely dangerous.

  2. People talk about the GOP being enablers, but what about Twitter? Twitter has rules against hate speech, violence, and the like, yet here's Trump using it all the time to make posts like those, which people keep pointing to setting a tone, inciting others to violence, making hate normalized, and so forth, yet Twitter doesn't suspend, or remove his account. I've reported him for violating their rules, others should as well, and comment that Twitter isn't applying their own rules on Trump.

  3. Would have been a cool show of solidarity for Pelosi to stand with them on stage……but she stinks.

  4. What President Trump said was Truth if you don't like it here and don't want to assimilate to our Country then go back to your country and make it better but don't demand us to change to fit your narrative .

  5. In the Declaration of Independence the Founding Fathers made it clear that replacing a corrupt government with a new one is the right and duty of all men. No member of Congress or any other U.S. citizen who opposes Trump's dictatorial and cruel policies has to leave the U.S.

  6. Disgusting orange blob spewing sewage again. Dear America, the world is watching and applauding the strength and integrity of the women of "the squad" and people like Ari Melber and his guests. Keep up the good work until the light shines and the trolls lie defeated.

  7. People we have to vote him and all of the spineless republicans that enabled him out of office. 2020 is a battle for the soul of america do not sit bye and allow these people to destroy our home. Do not sit back and allow this ignorance and bigotry to spread any further.

  8. Since trump and the republican party hate America, the rule of law and the constitution. If they hate what America is and what made it great in the first place then they should leave.sooner the better.the confederacy died in the 1800s.if trump hates mooching immigrants start deporting his wife and inlaws none contribute to society but reap its rewards.

  9. The kkk hates jewish people, trumps base.neo nazis hate jewish people again trumps base. Conservative Christians hate jewish people again trumps base.so who again hates isreal and jewish people?

  10. The more he talks the bigger embarrassment he becomes for himself and all of his blind followers in congress and out are even more of an embarrassment for letting themselves be taken in by a con and selling their soul in the process.

  11. Well Trump can go back to where he came from then, or where his ancestors came from, as it is clear that he hates America, especially when he encourages a foreign power to interfere in American elections, and spreads hatred every time he opens his mouth. All of these women are American now, just like Trump is so he is just as much a non National.

  12. 4 young, women of color with a voice. Terrifying for Repub's. Lots of pearl clutching and full diapers at the nursing home tonight.

  13. Unrelated, but important⤵️

    ⚠️I been meaning to mention this for a month now, which is: Certain news medias may need to investigate some things regarding their ratings, and if there's any strange anomalies, because I've seen/heard several disgruntled donald trump supporter's within the 'comment sections' boasting, and sounding self-assured, as if, they conspired about how "the ratings and views in news media platforms, will soon drop" on YT, as they laughed and mocked about it. Therefore, all social media's —- both various media networks videos; and an individual's video uploads, should check for any strange signs of tampering, or sabotage pertaining to "views," "ratings" (👍); and "subs." donald trump's supporters sounded a bit devious on what they were saying.

  14. How is he he seriously using the "If you don't like it you can get out comment". It boggles the mind. They love your country , they hate you. If you don't like how your country is run, you improve it. You don't leave.

  15. As an American ex-pat in S. Korea I was told "Go back to where you came from" it came from a racist old man…. And Trump is another one.

    Melania must wonder what her husband is saying to her, maybe she knows. Except for Tiffany, all the Trump kids have immigrant mothers. They should be told could "go back to where you came from". It applies as much as it does to AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.

  16. It's time for every right wing conservative to support Trump and finally openly admit that they're the racist party. Or are you too cowardly?

  17. Don’t worry two of trump wives are going home also .Lindsey ,Lindsey, Lindsey the country pity you, after all the names you called trump, you the king of flip flopped , you earned the crown 👑

  18. Native Americans can make the immigrant argument? If that's the case, Africans can make that case for the entire planet.

  19. #45 government is a complete and total catastrophe ,,led by a sexual predator , conman , racist , treasonous , corrupt etc etc ,,,,IMPEACH AND JAIL THIS MONSTER

  20. Her statement resonated so deep..when we wanted to go back we weren't allowed…but this country was BUILT ON THE BACKS OF MY PEOPLE

  21. Other Republicans has no balls to stand up or say something about trump tweet re- racist remark. They just too scared of trump.This is what trump wants to do to spread the hate all around USA because he feels very insecure.his selfish, self centre, remember his a drug addict too. His grand father was a member of KKK.His father is a criminal ,it’s inborn all the nasty behaviour of trump. He belongs to cold and unloved family.His the worse president of the USA. He destroyed Americans relationship with other nations. America has no friends like trump he has no friends , his delusional .i used to like Americans with trump in charge I’ll keep away. I Feel sad .some Republican has no dignity, no morals.very very sad.

  22. Does anyone, apart from racists, ever believe a word Lindsey Graham says. He must hope his electorate are all as racist as he is. Is selling your soul just for a few games of golf really such a great bargain.

    McConnell is hiding again. He has to be careful – if the wife loses her job if he dare say anything Trump may not approve of how would he rake in the millions through their corruption.

    Mnuchin, and any of the others who have actually mentioned this racist slur at all, pretend they either never heard it or heard something completely different to the rest of us. The rest are scuttling away to avoid being put on the spot and having to comment on it at all.

    That every Republican, except the only one of color, has no moral compass comes as no surprise. It’s lurking in the same place as their spines are piled & gathering dust.

  23. #mitch cannot defy #trump because Donald has Epstein stuff on him, it will all come out they are all crooked criminals.

  24. These strong, intelligent, honest un-corrupted women are the greatest thing t happen to politics ever. We need more strong people to take up their example!

  25. #Linsey has been with some #Epstein teens and trump knows his baggage and that is the reason for his shameful turn. It’s all about the blackmail, #trump has stuff on all of his #republican #BOYtoys

  26. The folks who elected these people have shown Trump's color, it is time to mount him
    on a space force rocket, with no guidance control

  27. Any other person breaks the laws that Trump does, and they would go to jail. Now, if anyone else made these comments it would be racist, but its not when Trump does it? Why have so many Americans drank the Kool-Aid?

  28. I don't have time to dislike or hate another human simply because of their race. Plenty of people I won't associate with but none because of their race. I'm a equal opportunity person when it comes to disliking and race plays no part. I'm an old white man and I enjoy cultural diversity. Looking forward to the day the world becomes one and ceases to find reasons to hate another because of their ethnic background. I personally find people that use racial slurs and race in an attempt to subjugate or belittle others very boring and are lacking in self confidence and their abilities. The world is diversifying and this is great! Someday people might realize that all humans are brothers and sisters and working together will set all of us free. Hate boring and limiting…acceptance enlightening and powerful.

  29. if you support a racist, your a racist. point blank. This presidents ideas is going to cause another civil war.

  30. Trump does not inspire anyone with his intelligence, he is not, like, really smart. It is easy to believe that those who support Trump are not very smart either, but that would just excuse their choice and their behavior. Trump is a one trick pony, he peddles fear and hate. While racism is evil, it is not stupid to racists, it is logical to blame somebody else for their failure to achieve the American dream. Trump's supporters are not so stupid that they were fooled by Trump. They knew what he was selling, and they liked it. Trump understands this addiction to hate and stokes that sweet hate high with his toxic comments. At the end of the day, Trump just wants ratings share. It's always better to get attention for the positive things that you do, but since Trump is not a decent human being who does good deeds, he has settled for negative attention for the hate that engenders his presidency.

  31. Talib, Epstien, Ocaisio.
    Why are anchors unable to pronounce names correctly? It's not that hard. And imho a job requirement for a news anchor.
    Get your act together!

  32. Many people agree with him. This is true, because many people hate people based on someone’s race. A truly animalistic thinking. The only difference between us and any other feature is at least with what we understand with modern science is we can reason. The only People in our country who have the true right to say go back where you came from are the many American Indian tribes we stole this country from. And even worse we stole it by raping and murdering them as we stole their land claiming they were the savages!!!!! Even worse is the fact that we still haven’t changed much.

  33. It needs to be loudly broadcast if they don’t condemn it they agree with it and believe it in their hearts to the bone. We are truly seeing what the Republican Party majority truly represents.

  34. I think we're neither discussing the properly framed problem, nor the big picture solutions yet. #FearIsTheProblem. Fear is the root of insecurity, narcissism, bullying, misogyny, homophobia, racism, bigotry and greed. Fear allows people to mentally wall-off their own empathy to virtually zero. 

    Three of the biggest generators of fear are 1) this historically unsustainable and exponentially growing wealth and income inequality level of late stage, out of control capitalism (if you lose your job you might lose healthcare access, your home, car, partner, child custody, etc), 2) fear-mongers like Fox/Faux/Fear News, the GOP, etc. (they’re all out to get you, all the time), and 3) religion ('evil' is waiting around every corner, all your life with eternal unimaginable fiery torture as a deterrent).

    American Republican fear is historically extraordinary. Every single American Republican policy is more fear and greed based than the progressive alternative. Fear (and the empathy it kills) is what separates the right from the left.

    With tuition free education, universal healthcare, a livable Universal Basic Income, internet access for all, etc, together we'll take a giant leap in reducing day to day societal fears and towards increasing equality.

  35. Wouldn't it be nice to hear the crack of a rifle and watch trumputins head explode !!! I would be.. ROTFLMAO !!!

  36. Damnit mbc can you explain more often that this is what white nationalism is? I loved when you said the other day one could ask if it's David dukes quote or Trump's. It needs to be said almost each time this conversation comes up so it's instilled in the public's knowledge base, this is the face of white nationalism, subtle to gain popularity.

  37. He is afraid of those women
    You racist has for so long try to pens colored people as inferior to white people now those smart badass women have proved then wrong and the massage of colored people been inferior does not work anymore the only thing that they have left is pure racist

  38. On Sept. 13, 1926 50,000 KKK members paraded down Pennsylvania Ave., Washington DC. Back then the approx. population was 117.40 million, today we're almost 3x's that. That hatefilled event has never left our Nation's consciousness, it just blended in more skillfully. But we have grown in many ways and will keep maturing, but we're not there yet. Just the mere fact that 4 American women of different ethnic backgrounds were elected to serve our Nation and be bold enough to defend themselves, and survive (it's a shame I had to use that term) gives me great hope.

  39. THERE ARE MORE OF US TRUE AMERICANS THEN YOU SOCIALISTS,WE WILL HAVE OUR COUNTRY BACK AGAIN WITHOUT ALL YALLS IDEAS OF SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM

  40. mitch mconnel lindsey graham grand masters in klan disguised as congress persons- civil war soon btwn racist white trump people and the rest of the world- who you think is gonna get the W?

  41. Alright then, why doesn't Trump put his money where his twitter toilet mouth is, go back to Nazi Germany in 1942, where he came from?

  42. The "squad" i.e., Omar, Tlaib, Cortez, and Pressley, are all very low IQ, ignorant women, who hate America. They should all keep their big, dumb, mouths shut, or go to a country that is more inline with their way of thinking.

  43. Most criminal, incompetent, divisive, corrupt, unpatriotic Presidential administration in U.S. history. No joke! The big joke is Republicans pretending nothing wrong.

  44. Mr Trump….  where are we getting a national health care plan?   where are we on getting a national infrastructure plan in place? where are we on getting immigration reform?  where are we on doing something for the DACA immigrants?  where are we on getting North Korea to dismantle its nuclear program?  where are we on doing something concrete on climate change that will show the world, we care? where are we on stabilizing relations with Iran?   where are we on helping Venezuelans eat food purchased with their own money? Money we have locked up in US banks.  where are we on fixing the tariff war that is hurting our patriotic farmers, you claim to love so much?  You promised that YOU would work to get us modernized airports to rival the best in the world. You promised YOU would fix our roads and freeways. YOU promised to fix air travel.  YOU promised Mexico would pay for the wall.. YOU promised to build a wall.  YOU promised the best and cheapest health care plan for ALL America…After all this time…….  YOUR report card shows an F   for complete failure!!!   The ONLY subject where you approach an A, is on the subject of RACISM….  In that subject YOU excel.  But in America racists are a dime a dozen…  We need someone at the top who can lead…..  and YOU'RE NOT IT !!   YOU'RE FIRED!STOP wasting our time with your idiotic tweets that insult us all!

  45. Wow, Neal Katyal's mom is a great lady to laugh to bigotry but how sad to hear that someone would do that in this country.

  46. I think there is something missing in the mind of a racist. A lack of an enquiring mind, but perhaps underlying cowardice. Those 4 brave congresswoman must scare the daylights out of congressional republicans. Why? Because they are articulate, logical, and heroic. It calls out the meek and highlights the ignorance on which republicans, and particularly trump, rely.

  47. Glad I am licensed to carry. I usually only carry when I have large amounts of cash on me. Nah… it is getting validly scary. Not just some blown out of proportion fear mongering. No, those who demonize us are the actual demons out here killing people over skin color. This is ridiculous.

  48. All those women have NO IDEA OF HOW GOVERNMENT WORKS OR WHAT MAKES A NATION. All you brainwashed stooges just keep watching this PROPAGANDA BS.

  49. These are not young teenage girls who can be intimidated by old, rich, white men. The 4 congresswoman are courageous, intelligent, well educated, women who are not afraid to use their voices to help others and make their country better. They are the new leaders of the United States of America, that the old leaders, are very frightened of!

  50. Boo hooo, are any of these black/brown people actually produce anything? All they want is free handouts and they are all self entitled to free stuff. Well some of us actually work and dont look for free handouts.

  51. You are so right, Miguel we are suffering spiritual and moral illness and it’s being aggravated by #45 and we Americans have to fight back and denounce the hateful rhetoric that is dividing us and our beautiful blessed nation!

  52. I wish you would play the videos where Trump trashed EVERYTHING ABOUT AMERICA, before and during his presidential campaign – juxtapose those videos with the one where he says "if you don't like America, YOU CAN LEAVE!" I sure wish he would leave, or better yet, choke to death on a cheeseburger.

  53. Impeach Trump…A BULLY who uses Nazi tactics.. to humiliate All Americans! Plus his racist family up front! OMG! We are paying taxes, for this smelly Government ruled by the Trump regime, and arrest all of Trumps family of traders to USA~Trump and his family are a clear and present danger to Democracy! and Trump is a Traitor for Putin! Impeach, now!

  54. How dare they attack the sitting President and call to doubt the legitemacy of his authority. Trump would never….

    Oh.

  55. Why won't WHITE women stand up for 'The Squad'? Sure, it's a racial thing, but it's also against women period. Trump hates strong women.

    he is doing exactly what he wants and rarely experiences a setback. all part of the plan – America's destruction (Revelation 18). God's judgement. and Trump is the perfect man to bring it about!

  60. Trumps clever, by doing this he's cut down the momentum of the dems on the campaign trail and the media and everyone else has absolutely fallen for it.

Psychopaths are addicted to drama and they can't stand to be bored."

  63. People only see what they want to see. What I see are 4 individuals that are seeking attention instead of just doing their jobs. I’m of color and find it disgusting they use the race card any chance they get.
