Appearing on MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle Thursday morning, regular contributor Jason Johnson, politics editor for TheRoot.com, denounced President Trump’s effort to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census form as one of his “crazy ideas that don’t make any sense” and “very possibly have racist motivations behind them.”

Parkland school shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv made headlines this week after he revealed Harvard had rescinded his acceptance into the Ivy league school after racial slurs he texted at 16 years old were leaked to the media. A liberal mob called for the gun-rights activist to be punished for repeatedly using “n-word” in a group text with friends.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg reannounced a $500-million effort to eradicate coal and natural gas use in the U.S. on June 6. ABC, CBS and NBC news didn’t even flinch. That night the three broadcast evening shows made no time for the billionaire media mogul’s massive spending to shut down the rest of the nation’s coal plants by 2030 and start targeting natural gas plants. They also haven’t reported it since, much less scrutinized it even though he’s a high-profile liberal donor, media owner and maybe former politician.

While promoting the upcoming hearings on the Mueller Report orchestrated by House Democrats, on Monday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle feared that the partisan stunt would be unsuccessful in “moving the needle” of public opinion against President Trump.
