Legendary ice cream makers and progressive activists Ben and Jerry have a new campaign to end qualified immunity for police, a major issue in pending legislation, and they join MSNBC’s Ari Melber to discuss. In the interview, they also respond to mounting Republican attacks on corporations that back certain policies, like voting rights; explain their philosophy on capitalism and ice cream; recount how the idea for “Cherry Garcia” came from a Deadhead fan; and they respond to Ari’s irreverent “hardball” question pressing them on whether their ice cream is mostly popular because of its ridiculous amount of fillings and toppings. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ).
