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.
