Sherrilyn Ifill: 'Exciting' That Kamala Harris Is Set To Make History | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC


    1. Remember when AG Harris kept non violent drug offenders in prison longer for free prison labor, or kept people on death row after evidence was found to overturn their convictions? What will they do without that prison labor? You should look into what companies take advantage of it. Places like Starbucks, jcpenneys, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, target, Walmart, Verizon, American Airlines.

  1. Speaking of VPs, it must have sucked for Pence to have been loyal to the maga cult for all that time and then with just 2 weeks left, get hung out to dry. Sooooo close!

  2. Only one question: Why should Biden heal the Country? I think the MAGA has to go to “Canossa” first . I know the most of them not understand it

  3. Oh but o “pardon money” has found its way to Mr Trump. Really? How nice. But one might imagine it has just gone into some obscure “family charitable fund”. This despicable man should be in prison.

  4. I bet she feels so proud being the first black woman vice president the emotions she will have on the 20th with the huge crowd cheering her .

  5. Not only the Capitol must be protected all around, but also Biden and Harris. Reliable snipers have to walk among the soldiers to keep an eye on the soldiers. Every effort must be made to protect the elected president and vice president during the inauguration. Nothing should be overlooked. All worst case scenarios should be investigated and not underestimated.

  6. The man that carried that Confederate flag thru the Capitol should be buried somewhere south of Gettysburg PA. … but only after he gets a fair trial with a jury of 12 US Marines.

  7. Remember when MAGA was like she’s not giving up her Senate seat!!! She’s not really VP!! it’s really pitiful that their hopes were dashed like that.

  8. I’m getting dressed up for the Inauguration. I feel so proud for Vice-President Elect Harris’ swearing in and President Elect Joseph Biden’s swearing in. Don’t let these devils steal our Joy

  9. Sherrilyn Ifill hits the nail on the head. Confronting by asking who we are as Americans. Something new needs to be created. I agree.

  10. I look back at all the wonderful Black female politicians who should have held that office and despair that Harris is chosen!
