Immigration is certainly an important issue to discuss, but to spend the whole interview on it? Uh, why? Sometimes I think the media (particularly both CNN & MSNBC) get on an issue they think will drive ratings & they just beat the absolute shit out of it. This is happening now with immigration, but it's also happening with Kamala Harris.
Since the debates, EVERY guest & host on CNN & MSNBC (including Rachel) has been pushing, pushing, pushing Harris as the one who's gonna end up being the Dem candidate. Just why the the hell is that? Cuz she made one cheap shot at Biden in the debates & Biden reacted ineffectively in that moment? I still know little of Harris's views & have no idea why she should be President.
Look, Rachel started the show pointing to polls saying Harris has some momentum in the race. But the fact is she's still far behind Biden. So why was Rachel showing these polls, when she herself said they're mostly meaningless now? Was she justifying having Harris on, or trying to create some drama in her being there?
Given what's going on now in the courts with ACA, that is the first thing she should have asked Harris about. This was a nothing interview & it was absolutely Rachel's fault.
Listen, Rachel, if you're gonna spent the first 10 minutes of your show telling us why it's so important to have Harris there, & shove polls at us, then get her to open up & tell us WTF she's gonna do as President & why we should vote for her.
Btw, the ONLY thing I remembered about the Bernie interview was that he smiled. Was that supposed to be Bernie taking a brief break from the cranky-old-dude routine? Otherwise, it was just Bernie spouting the same old Bernie shit.
