Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly; Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.); New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu; roundtable discussion with Joy Reid, Kimberley Strassel, Charlie Sykes and Amy Walter.
Corker didn’t do or say anything to make me think that he has a clue of what is going on, has any influence of any sort, or any desire to do or act on any of the topics which came up. He didn’t seem to have any useful opinions of any sort. I learned nothing other than that he seemed to be filling time. It was a waste of 5 minutes of interview.
I keep hearing the word “backchanneling”, but it seems like the two sides have wildly different versions of what it means.
Great little roundtable this week. This was certainly the most interesting portion of the show, but ultimately I don’t think it moves the needle in America much. Joy-Ann Reid was solid, poised and made some strong points–I’d like to see more of her on shows like this.
