Laverne Cox Reacts To The SC's Landmark Decision On LGBTQ Rights | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC


  1. America, what are you doing?? Every other country is trying so hard to fight coronavirus. But look at you.

    1. @Kevin McNeil
      Watching my country’s news and a quick google search tells me your country is f”*ked!!!!

    2. Over 117,000.00 lives lost and according to the minions, the C19 is over and done with so why would they try to fight the virus? It’s over because the WH said so.

  2. Trump is going to be very angry that his judge, Neil Gorsuch, made this ruling in favor of LGBTQ…
    Giving another HUGE win to the left.

    1. @Steve Dee Sorry to inform you, in America judges sit for life..unless they’re impeached….

    2. @The Blue Arrow Time and time again, the SCOTUS proves that the left is in the right and the right is in the wrong. Even going back to Brown vs the Board of Education… All 9 White Men voted and agreed that separate but equal was in fact not equal…..Roe vs Wade. 7 White men voted that a woman had the right to choose. Let this be a historical lesson. Judges, the good ones, are lawyers first and foremost, and if you look at the voting record of the SC, you’ll discover there are many different ways that the voting outcome falls… It isn’t Dems vs GOP… It’s a matter of how the judges read the Constitution.

  3. I have to admit I have difficulty fully understanding transgender people. I’m trying _I really am._

    1. From that “I really am” I assume your acknowledgement that you feel that the moral norms that guide your life demand you, to treat transgender people like everyone. To do so you try to “feel” them as normal. Given that our feelings are difficult to control at best, and the least in terms of desires, that would be a huge step. Accepting is achievable without sharing the feelings of others. That doesn’t require you to change your heart. But there is a good chance, that this approach will open the hearts of others. After times of great discrimination, persecution of lost and destroyed lives, the burden of mounted up wounds makes people think that change means giving up everything. Yet little steps can do so much. I think all “big things” happen in the small! If 1933 in my home country Germany a coworker invited her Jewish colleague to her table in the lunch break, democracy happened between these two people for the duration of this lunch at this table, no matter how loud Mr. Hitler was yelling into his microphone.

    2. Nobody does explicitly that’s why there’s research to provide insight. And for what its worth heterosexual men and women don’t even understand each other.

    3. Love that you’re being honest! That’s good and necessary. What is it about trans people that you don’t understand?

  4. For a second there, I thought that massive crowd of protesters was a huge pile of gravel and then I realized that it was a crowd of protesters. Holy cow has the president screwed up lmao. I mean, if literally everyone else can do more in 20 days than the president is able to do in 3 years, that speaks volumes. Peace and prosperity be unto all those peaceful protesters who have fought hard for the right to be treated as equals. I’ll humbly and proudly accept all of you. You have my word.

    1. @Jen 417 Lol yep. A crowd of people protesting his decisions. He should be proud for being a parasite.

    2. @Jen 417 and the best part Jen, Trump *cannot fire him* like he does with *everyone else* who does not do his bidding….
      that’s the *salt being rubbed into the wound scenario that I like the best*

    1. Nobody truly cares about the Insanity of the pretend people … They fuss about for attention …

    2. That has always been smoke and mirrors. You had to be one of the ‘right’ people to have that privilege

    3. Apparently simply existing is considered offensive to people. Out of sight out of mind never really took hold. My view is if you’re preoccupied with someone else’s orientation then its likely you are the thing you hate; projected masking self-hatred.

  5. Bunker boi is going to take a load off of his grouchyness on ๐Ÿฆ.
    Wait for it…Twitt๐Ÿฅ

  6. This really is a huge deal. I am so happy that the SCOTUS represented all the people!!! Congratulations to all those who fought to have this protection.

  7. A good decision but a scandal it took so long. It should have been the job of Congress to solve this discrimination. I can only imagine what the right wing zealots are thinking right now. The same old “How can 9 unelected Judges decide what’s law and what isn’t.” Boo hoo…

  8. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งโค๏ธ

  9. That giggle @ 3:16 cracked me up. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    I love her!!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  10. I love lavern cox sheโ€™s so amazing i wanna be like her when i grow up โค๏ธ

  11. I have been an active ally for 20 years. The messages fell on deaf ears for so long. It is amazing the changes in recent years. Let the fight continue. Justice for all people <3 Laverne is a beautiful human being. <3
