  1. It's weird that Mitch McConnell does this to troll minorities and stoke white supremacists with that creepy smile when he says that stuff. Very creepy.

  2. Reparations in the form of a National Monument equal to or greater than WWII Memorial is in order.

  3. McConnell slavery owers and biggest Biggot and. Reaper of congress )President Obama dont need no white Republicans Congressional Seniors Senate Biggit
    President Obama did his 8 yrs of service and the American people's of colors Loved him and his family )McConnell's hate President Obama when he was in Oval office mcConnell treat Obama's unfair in his health care and children's schools lunches and children's chilp medicare and elderly health care and infrastructure that Republicans blocked all Bills on the table and didn't give respect of his policies to help American people's of colors ) mcConnell hated a black man's was elected in office as President of United States of America as President Obama he'd prove best to man to run the Whitehouse and ovals office and Congress and Senate the military and government.and nation around the world President Obama is a good man a Love by all people's of colors and nations

  4. Foundational Black Americans are Natives of America slave or not .. Black Americans are not Immigrants and so now ya'll need to prove all these Slave Ships because We are Aboriginals.. They enslaved the Indigenous population first and for the longest .. The Original Runaway slaves conquered and Colonized

  5. I’m much more concerned with McConnell and his wife’s overwhelming corruption and betrayal of American values. I’d really like to see THEIR financial records. I bet there are some serious skeletons in their closets!

  6. The Act of 1871:The ''United States'' "is a Corporation-There are Two Constitutions-With no Constitution Authority to do so: Congress CREATES a separate Form of government for the District of Columbia a Ten Mile,,It used to Fool the People into thinking it govens the Republic ((UNITED STATES Isn't a Country It's a Corporation 1871))((Great Video:Dr. Nailah Inanna El & Grand Sheik-Taj Tarik Bey Discuss Various Topics))((Great Video:Taj Tarik Bey inalienable Rights abridges Last 150 years))support the house we can continue to have great videos from Grand Sheik-Taj Tarik Bey!!!((Great Video: Ellis Island-History of IMMIGRATION to the United States/1890-1920/Award Winning documentary))(Great Video: Forgotten Ellis island))(Great Video: Victorian Crime and Punishment))((Great Video:The Children who Build Victorian Britain Part 1of 4))((Great Video:1800 Child Labor in United States)))((Great Video:All Original slaves were White 100%)) ((Great Video: Black People invented Everything computers cell phone the internet!!!)))

  7. It's sick comment I don't know why people are decrying this is a blatant bold face smear!!!! It's SICKENING VILE REVOLTING

  8. Ari's listening skill in discerning the fact from a conversation from his guest is so intelligently stunning. There is always something to learn and take away when he summarizes. Thanks Ari

  9. McConnel is just taking a page from Trump's books of lies and redirection by using a different version of whataboutism Trump uses as learnedness from his true master and puppeteer. Which as we all know by know by now is Putin.

  10. How anyone from Kentucky can be proud to call this man their senator is beyond me. He is cancer and has been cancer for a very long time. This is a man who once "fillibustered" his own bill because the Democrats agreed with it, he's an agent of chaos and the sooner he's gone from American politics, the better off we'll all be

  11. McConnell is human filth! Which is also why he's a Republican, nothing but trash there! Ditch this racist turtle to the alley where him and the rest of the Republican trash needs to be! #voteBlue

  12. Mitch stop dividing people on issues…you are a rasist xenophobic ignorant excuse for a man…As Graham said about Trump….get out now Mitch…Save our government in 2020 from old worn out men..with one agenda… money money money…go back to China Mitch…you work for them and your wife…drain the SWAMP of men like him….

  13. His great great grandparents were slaves mated with slaves and white women to bring up the value of the slaves by having lighter skin than a slave from the Congo that might have been his Grandfather. Surprising how some of these cross breeds don't want to acknowledge their true parentage. Show us your Grandfather's birth Certificate, then work your way back before the Civil War.

  14. Oh, how the left loves to dish it out, but they sure cannot take it when the shoe is on the other foot. And isn't it funny how the Democratic party today will never admit that it has been the Democrat Party throughout the history of the United States that has supported slavery and segregation? Jeremiah 17:9 again… The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it? What hypocrisy.

  15. What a cheap shot by some race monger that did not give Obama one good governance day and delayed the Supreme Court vacancy until trump get in and now is on record saying that he would allow trump to nominate a Moyer racist to the court as all republicans Supreme Court nominees were and are conservatives and racists.

  16. Reparations? Get of your lazy butt and get a job. The indians deserve reparations, not African-Americans. Why? Amy Mcgrath does not speak for 'we.' 'We' voted of our duly elected President, get of your pompus horse lady. Why is Obama so great? Because he pushed Obamacare down our throats by executive order? I don't think so. He hated middle America and that is apparent by his Swamp creatures he put in place.

  17. I think these Republicans are such weak scared sissies. Their excuse for everything is "some one else did it to". None of y'all would take that excuse from a child. Yet it's the go to response from Republican leaders every day.

  18. Mitch McConnell should be forced out of office. HE IS DELIBERATELY DIVIDING THIS NATION BY USING RACE AS HIS ACE IN THE HOLE CARD TO GET REELECTED. TRUMP USED THE RACE CARD, KAMELA HARRIS USED THE RACE CARD. IT HAS TO STOP. LIKE IT OR NOT THEY ARE OPENING PANDORA'S BOX. WHAT MATTERS MOST? ISSUES SUCH AS COLLEGE DEBT, HEALTHCARE ETC. THOSE WHO WANT TO STIR THE POT TO KEEP THEIR JOBS NEED TO BE THROWN OUT OF OFFICE! I AM CALLING FOR A COMPLETE TURNOVER OF THOSE WHO CHOOSE NOT TO LEGISLATE WHILE IN OFFICE. THAT'S WHY WE SENT THEM TO WASHINGTON IN THE FIRST PLACE. IF ANYONE IS FED UP AS I AM CONSIDER VOTING FOR SANITY, CONSIDER VOTING FOR SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN. BUT ULTIMATELY SHOW MCCONNELL THE EXIT DOOR.

  19. Some Southern states were slaveholders, and they produced offspring with their slaves, then it means their offspring were part white and part black? If an American Indian produces offspring with a Scandinavian woman, then their offspring are American Indian and Scandinavian. If a Chinese woman produces offspring with an American German, then the offspring is Chinese and German. So it's possible no one stays put in their region and your great, great grandfather married someone from the South, or Connecticut, etc. And if AOC wants to use the 'race card' against Pelosi, think about it, they are both LATINO. America, wake up! Our history goes back over 200 years. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT- THE USA IS A MELTING POT! ALL NATIONS ARE MELTING POTS! IF ALL THIS BOTHERS ANYONE, THEN TAKE IT OUT ON YOUR ANCESTORS, NOT ON EACH OTHER. ISN'T ONE IMBECILE IN THE WHITE HOUSE ENOUGH, DO WE HAVE TO USE HIM AS A ROLE MODEL? CONGRESS, FIX THE ISSUES! GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER! I FEEL LIKE I AM BACK IN JUNIOR HIGH. ARE ADULTS REALLY IN CHARGE OF GOVERNING?

  20. President Obama would stop and bend over to help a Child! Mitch McConnell Puts Children in Cages! How dare Mitch compare himself to a REAL MAN!

  21. A white racist hearing the word reparations is like throwing holy water on a vampire ,it burns them

  22. The media made sure they didn’t report what it really means that Obama’s mother’s side owned slaves? Y’all missed it. Obama’s father WASN’T a descendant of slavery in regards to the North America continent. Forget the white racist jerk and what he stands for but look at who Obama really is? Y’all got caught up in his MLK voice, look at him. And look at how mentally gullible you sheep are.

  23. Anyone out there that wants to see Mitch McConnell and his wife removed from office now? Do you care what method is used?

  24. Sickoning pig- what does that even have to do with it, Is turtle man trying to prove that he is a racist pig?

  25. Why did Ari Melber, MSNBC, and his producers edit the video and leave out the question that Mitch McCoonnell was answering? Smart and skeptical people (not people addicted to political and partisan news) already know the answer.

  26. Sith McConnell, evil incarnate, thank god he's going to be gone sooner than later, hopefully he'll be voted out, but maybe we'll get lucky and he'll just drop dead from having a black hole for a soul.

  27. Actually he is making a very valid point. Not that America doesn't owe reparations to American descendants of slavery. It does. The valid point he is making is that we had a Black president who got about 98% of the Black vote, gave zero policy, was a descendant of slave OWNERS and was anti-reparations. His views are the SAME as a right wing racist conservative and Black people STILL deify Obama. Black people put that non descendant of American slavery OVER us as a group. THAT is embarassing. Also, that lineage from Obama's mother gave him a life that most American descendants of slavery do NOT have. Race was NOT a headwind for HIM like it is for ADOS because of LINEAGE and the consequences of that.

  28. once again, the weasel face makes an utterly useless statement intended to divide and mislead his constituents…

  29. He's scum. They're jealousy of Obama spews out of their mouths with a vengeance, they can't control it. He's been out of office almost three years & they can't seem to keep his name off their minds or out of they're mouths. Sad.

  30. Reparations could very well end up being THE WORST THING to ever happen to black people in America. Many – no doubt – would be KILLED. [There she is. She just CASHED her reparations check] Rent would go UP. [Obviously you can afford it now] Racism would become far more out in the open. And not just from whites but from anyone not black. [People don't like it when someone gets something they didn't get] And after getting their checks – do you seriously think that ANYONE other than black people would listen to anymore 'slavery talk'? IT WOULD BE OVER. "You got your money. Now SHUT UP!"

  31. The past is prologue. Americans grappling with complex issues… That's a "dog chasing its tail" scenario if I ever heard one. Doesn't matter what color they are.

  32. How old is this GEEZER ???? 1,000? 5,000,10,000..McConnell needs to go back to Kentucky….shut up and stay there !!!!! and hopefully die a screaming horrible miserable death !

  33. Unfortunately here in Kentucky is still a lot of old hate Mc Connell know what to say to let them know he will always do what they want. He will win again. I would like to see a change Kentucky has so much to offer but ol blue grass roots will keep holding us back .

  34. McConnell has a point. Did Obama inherited from his mother as consequence of his ancestors being slave owners?

    If this is true; he should also pay reparations and everyone who somehow owe their worth to slavery. Why not Obama or anyone for that matter.

    It's a birth right.

  35. Exactly how are we going to give out reparations? Are they going to be pass
    out based upon how dark their skin is? Then I will quickly invest in
    tanning booths. Are we able to determine how much blood was from slavery
    and how much was later immigrants. How much slaver blood do they need
    to have 50% 25% etc, and is it prorated? How about if they can
    determine how much ex slave holder blood they have? Will that detract
    from the loot distribution? We must remember that many blacks actually
    held slaves. Do we look at the means test IE how about middle class
    blacks and upper class blacks and rich blacks? Do they get the same
    amount of money? And on and on and on.

    What happens when this money is spent and gone like 80% of the lotto winners monies? How long
    until they come back and say HEY that was never enough so I want more
    from you suckers. Do you really think that this distributions will even
    happen. If it happens then how much resentment will happen from the
    rest of society? Right now blacks have all kinds of incentives and
    assistance to succeed and most whites want them to succeed.

    Will this solve the problem of 75% of black children being born out of
    wedlock. Will this stop the murder rate of blacks being 7 times higher
    than whites. Will this stop the number of assaults from blacks on
    whites being 25 times higher than whites on blacks or that Aggravated
    battery for blacks is 200 times higher than white on black? Will this
    stop the probability of a black man being killed by another black man is
    at least 10 times higher than by a white man?

    You SJWs are determined to rip this country apart. You think that your SJW Jihad is
    right and everyone else who disagrees with your mind numbing BS is a
    racist of fascist etc that must be silenced. So your next set of
    reparations will be first for Indians and then for Hispanics. How
    about East Indians and East Asians who make on average 20% more income
    than the average white guy. Kinda puts a hole in white privilege
    doesn't it?

    Vote for me and you will win the lottery!

  36. Moscow Mitch is on his way out. Maybe the Nazis will take him there.nice home for him and his max is wife. Teerri

  37. Sorry, as a descendant of enslaved peoples, all I heard is that Moscow Mitch's family owned slaves right here in the same state that my family were slaves. We need to talk reparations and interest rates!

  38. Please, see the YouTube video titled Moscow Mitch The Musical by Bruce W. Nelson. You got to love it.
    🤭🤭🤭🚶🎱🚶🎱🚶🎱👏👏👏👏👏👏👏🙆🙆💕

  39. The difference is Obama doesn't see us as color but McConnell does and that was apparent when Obama won his first presidential election
