CNN legal expert Danny Cevallos joins me to talk the killing of Philando Castile and what can be done to counter the racial disparity of our criminal justice system. Bassem Youssef, known as the Jon Stewart of the Middle East, tells us why Trump reminds him of the dictators he lived under in Egypt plus we discuss his new documentary “Tickling Giants.” Plus Do Democrats need to change their message after the loss yesterday of two special elections?
Donald Trump is Tinder for bigots. His campaign and presidency has helped countless bigots hook up with each other, and we will see another example of that this Saturday with anti-Muslim rallies scheduled in nearly 30 locations across America.
These rallies are organized by ACT for America!, an organization founded by Hanah Kahwagi, who goes by the alias of Brigitte Gabriel, and who has preached that practicing Muslims “cannot be a loyal citizen to the United States of America.” As Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) spokesperson Heidi Beirich explained, “ACT for America is the nation’s largest anti-Muslim hate group.”
No, leaders on the left have not incited political violence as the Newt Gingrich’s and Donald Trump, Jr.’s want you to believe. Yet we heard this sentiment voiced after the horrific terrorist attack Wednesday on GOP members of Congress in Alexandria, Virginia.
To support this false narrative, Newt Gingrich was on Fox News yesterday specifically targeting Kathy Griffin and the New York production of Julius Caesar -where Caesar is depicted as in essence Trump -as creating the environment that led to the attack. Donald Jr., as well as countless others echoed a similar view on Twitter.

After former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate intelligence committee this past week, we heard various conservative pundits — and even Donald Trump Jr. — take to the airwaves to defend President Donald Trump. But who didn’t we see defending him? Congressional Republicans.
-Bullied for being Muslim. All of us had to deal with bullies growing up (and even sometimes as adults). But a recent study shockingly found that 55 percent of Muslim American students have been bullied, which is double the national rate. And even more distressing is that 20 percent of Muslims students have been bullied and harassed for their faith by their teachers, the very people charged with protecting them. Imagine being called a “terrorist” or “raghead Taliban” in front of your classmates by your teacher? Well that’s exactly what has been happening.
