GOP's McConnell Implodes Over 'Woke' Companies & Jim Crow Law | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


Congressional Republicans are attacking what they call "woke corporations" for opposing a voter suppression law, but the clash is exposing deeper rifts within the GOP. MSNBC’s Ari Melber and strategist Chai Komanduri explore why the GOP is openly touting a re-branding to appear less "pro-corporation," as a new House GOP memo put it, and the limits of this criticism of Corporate America. The report also documents how Sen. Mitch McConnell wound up publicly contradicting his own long-standing positions about corporate free speech. (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. ). Aired on 04/15/2021.

    Between that and Biden’s sanctions on Russia, Moscow Mitch must be feeling livid and vulnerable.

      Moscow Mitch on the hot seat

    • Good, make Mitch squirm!

    • Because he’s married to a Chinese woman. When she resigned from the Orange 🍊 Orangutan 🦧 administration, he started attacking the White Racist Grand Wizard 🧙‍♀️ Fuhrer about the Capitol Insurrectionists who breached the Capitol Building that killed the Capitol police 👮‍♀️.

    Gop: we want your corporate money but shut up about our policy.

  5. The GOP invited foxes into the henhouse, and are now acting shocked and surprised that no one trusts them anymore.

  6. Funny how after conservatives boycotted Nike due to Kapernick that suddenly they are against cancel culture

  7. ALL of the social and political problems this country is experiencing today is due to GOP policy and action (actually inaction).

    • Yup The GOP is the new Nazi Party of are Lifetimes

    • @surely you joke, mein failüre They did a great job and the right thing standing up to these evil GOP New Nazi Party and Republicans that want hate and bigotry to rule are country and divide it until there’s a civil war and it’s to late to stop Armageddon and taking away are voting rights to control America like Hitler with germany and Trump being the dictator to do it just like he used the American People to incite the most cowardly and disgraceful event in american history the insurrection and get 5 people killed to add to his staggering body count now which stands at 560,000 dead more than all the Modern Wars in history and continues to climb unfortunately do to Trump’s toxic misinformation last year and lies and downplaying the pandemic from the beginning caught lieing worldwide on Audio Tapes By Bob Woodward in February 19 2020 saying he was always going to play it down and let Millions Die on his Herd Immunity Slaughtering Plan for television ratings and looking good for his rich Wallstreet Swamp Tyrant’s he hangs out with the Big Club as george carlin would say it and Trump helped them get rich off the pandemic and helped slash there taxes so they earned more than 620 billion dollars off people’s suffering and loss since 2020 the worst pandemic in Modern History

    • The Republicans are not the family party they are the ones who started penalizing a two income family, they are the ones who took Wallace Street over families, rasing the price of everything real estate buying a home during the regular administration real estate prices doubled, making mom and dad go to work just to pay the mortgage forget the four montly pay check rule, that brings a paycheck every week one pays the mortgage second utilities and household items, third paycheck car clothing, and miscellaneous, fourthr check credit cards, invocation savings when Ronald Reagan took over nobody took vacations anymore nobody saved any money anymore because everything double in price phone calls $0.10 unlimited time after Reagan 10 cents to open the line five cents for every minute they’re off

    • @Lunar Wuffy Making corporations people means you can…sue corporations.

    • @Slater K So, where are the concentration camps? How many Jews have they murdered? Where is the actual comparison? Has their been an invasion of a large number of surrounding countries? Canada? Mexico? Central America?

    Supreme Court RULED ; CORPORATIONS HAVE FREE SPEECH and Moscow Mitch cheered when they made that Decision ! So Mitch STFU

  9. I am praying for the people of Texas to vote Ted Cruz out please. God open their eyes so they see that they have the devil representing them

  10. Now companies are realizing that with Republicans, their money is what they want. Their opinions do not.

  11. Eastern Woods | April 15, 2021 at 9:09 PM | Reply

    Corporations are realizing that when 99% of the population can’t afford their products they can’t make money. Henry Ford had it right, pay the workers enough that hey can afford the product

    • What are you talking about? And what does it have to do with this report? God help us.

    • @R S , you must be young dumb and full if cu*if you don’t understand that the economy doesn’t take vacation families need to take vacations corporations are nothing without employees who get paid well back in the 70s are working never paid for health care insurance it was employer provided free that was when United States was great after Reagan Wall Street was King they run the country that’s why all these Republicans made millions and billions and now they are going after trillions while they’re working class needs food stamps just to have food

    • @R S you are lost.

    • Right. Business likes stability..

  12. I’m glad they’re playing the “they’re not coming for me; they’re coming for you” card because at least that will allow the rest of us to see who’s colossally stupid enough to fall for it so we can avoid them.

    Something is horribly wrong with the republicans when Corporations are standing up for Voting rights and against republican voting suppression laws.

    GOP is flummoxed that “we the people” are finally waking up to the corruption, hypocrisy, and elitism of their party!!!

  17. I sure hope these “woke” corps stop sending their woke $$$

    This entire situation is summed up into two words: “Republican Desperation” !!

  19. I hear you!
    I just don’t understand why there are so many working class people that just don’t get it, see it or hear it?
    And the Republican party has been running this scam for as long as I’ve been alive they don’t go after individual people they go after groups of people! I’ll just leave it at that…

  20. They have used up all their
    “Re-brand our party because we supported the wrong corrupt moron cards” They have repeatedly shown they cannot be trusted to ever do anything for the betterment of our country.
