Fri, 06/23/2017 - 11:49

In a podcast interview with Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, outspoken Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he believes it would be good for his team to “respect the institution” and “consider” visiting President Donald Trump at the White House to celebrate their NBA Finals victory. The NBA Champions are said to be considering turning down the invitation, but Kerr, who has been open in his criticism of the president himself, urged his guys to go to help bridge the “divide” in the country. [Relevant portion beginning at the 31:55 mark] “Everybody knows I’ve been a very outspoken critic of Trump,” Kerr told Kawakami. “As a result, maybe we won’t even get the invitation. But I do think it’s very important to consider a potential invitation because I think it could have really positive ramifications if we did go.” Kerr said that although he and many of his players were “offended” by Trump during his campaign, it is important to respect the office. “I think it could make a statement in a time where there’s so much divide and everybody seems to be angry with each other. It might be a good statement for us to

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 11:48

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Congressional Black Caucus chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), who once joked White House aide Kellyanne Conway “really looked kind of familiar” kneeling on an Oval Office couch, said sexism was an “effective” tactic in the South. Richmond made that comment with regards to ads attacking Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA) in Georgia’s special election earlier this week. After a backlash, Richmond apologized for the sofa comments. Discussing the Pelosi ads, Richmond said, “Well, I think that you use that in the South. I’m from the south. And I represent a district in Louisiana, and I think that there are a number of things you can do in the South that are easy — that doesn’t make it right. You can you always have subtle hints of racism or sexism and other things, and it will be effective to some extent, unfortunately. I don’t think it makes it right. I think it’s the reality we live in. We have to do a better job as Democrats of talking about what we believe in, what we stand for, and what our track record is.” “I think that you also can anticipate what people use against you and

Brokaw: GOP Organized, Moving Forward But Some Views Not in the ‘Best Interests’ of the Country

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 11:06

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former NBC “Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw acknowledged the Republican Party has been on a “roll” winning elections lately, he said he believed some of their views were not in the “best interests” of the country. Brokaw said, “Democrats are still playing by the old rules in my judgment. They’re not raising the people who we ought to be hearing from. Two easy examples for me: when Hillary Clinton was running, she took Bernie Sanders’ idea and said, ‘I’m going to give free college to families with $125,000 or less.’ There is no free lunch. At the end of the four years that you get a college education, you owe your country two years of public service. You go into civilian uniforms, and you help people who are in military uniforms in some fashion.” “There are government regulations out there,” he continued. “Look, I lived a lot of my life in the American west. There are regulations there that have no application to the practicality of living out there and doing your business out there. There was no discussion about that whatsoever. On the other hand, Republicans are on a roll. They’re very corporate in

Rand Paul (R-KY) made the argument that those who might lose their Medicaid coverage due to any Obamacare repeal should be offered an inexpensive option for coverage. Paul proposed a $1 a day plan and said the existing system and the current proposals were “predicated” on propping up health insurance providers, which he claimed was $15 billion annual industry that benefits from socializing its losses. “What I would like to do is legalize inexpensive insurance and you should be able to get insurance for $1 a day — I mean, you really should,” Paul said. “The insurance companies make all the money. All of this is predicated upon still, you know, propping up the insurance companies. The insurance companies hate the idea of the buying pools where you can join an association and drive prices down. They absolutely hate it because they think it might eat into their profit. They love sort of privatizing their $15 billion-a-year profit but then socializing their losses in the individual market. I have absolutely no sympathy for the insurance companies to be bailed out by the taxpayer. That $15 billion in profit, that’s where the risk should come
