Good show for good people
To me it’s one of the best show in TV . Very informative very inspiring and very measured, plus the participation of true experts, that make the show worth watching.
Please quit talking about the”American people” like we are idiots! We know what’s going on! Probably more than you do. I’m not rich I live paycheck to paycheck. And I was out self quarantining missing 4 days of work. Now I’m negative in my bank account. My daughter also. We know what’s going on!
How come other MSNBC anchors' shows are posted the same day? Ari Melber's uis up; so's Joy Reid. Why not Nicole Wallace? The show's quality is irrelevant if nobody bothers to upload it.
