One of the awesome MSNBC ladies...

...who can be counted on to ask excellent questions of their smart, insightful guests. I listen to Nicole, Joy & Rachel EVERY day & always come away having learned the story behind the stories, as well as reasonable, thoughtful punditry.

Kudos to all of them, and MSNBC for recognizing outstanding talent and giving them a platform to help us understand these difficult times.

The best combo of facts, humor & professionalism there is.

You were the first major MSM host to call trump a liar.

And you were & are right.

Love ya.
P.S. Could you find out why the test kits trump & co. use aren’t available to all of us? I’m thinking that his administration is controlling them & the reagent that the states he doesn’t like need.
Beyond ludicrous.
