Humiliating: See Trump Candidate Demolished By His Own Words On TV
720,622 views Apr 29, 2022 Ohio GOP candidate J.D. Vance was a loud “Never-Trumper” who charmed audiences with his memoir of growing up poor in rural Appalachia and stark warnings about Trump’s hate and authoritarian tendencies. Now, Vance is contradicting himself, appeasing Trump and earning an odd endorsement from the former president. In a special report, MSNBC's Ari Melber presents the factual record and videos showing Vance’s contradictions and highlights how the tech banker and media elite may be a “Trojan Horse” writhing conservative politics, one who is willing to push the very falsehoods he once condemned.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) tried his best at justifying former President Donald Trump’s racist Truth Social post from Friday, in which the ex-commander in chief said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had a “DEATH WISH” and called his former transportation secretary Elaine Chao "Coco Chow.”
The senator, flailing after being asked during a CNN appearance about the post, defended Trump's predilection for "nicknames."
“As you know, the president likes to give people nicknames. You can ask him how he came up with the nickname," Scott told Dana Bash during Sunday’s State of the Union. “I’m sure he has a nickname for me.”
Trump’s post—which attacked McConnell for allowing Democratic bills to pass in order to spite the ex-president, and which also accused the minority leader of trying to “take the country down with him”—launched a fervor of anger over its apparent call for violence and its attack on Chao, McConnell's wife, who is a U.S. citizen and was born in Taiwan.
Bash continued to press the senator, who holds a Senate leadership position as head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, on how Republicans could stand by a post that seemed flagrantly racist.
“It’s never, ever okay to be a racist. I think you always have to be careful if you’re in the public eye with how you say things. You want to make sure you’re inclusive,” Scott said from Naples, Florida, where he was overseeing Hurricane Ian recovery efforts. “You want to make sure—yesterday the neighborhood I was in, we had people probably from ten countries that lived there. That’s what’s great about this country. I know what I try to do is make everybody—everybody, especially all their kids believe they have hope and live the dream of this country. I hope no one is racist. I hope no one says anything that’s inappropriate. I’m going to do everything I can.”
