The Beat with Ari Melber
MSNBC guest Mark Thompson thinks Trump supporters are "gullible" and "acting against their own interest." Right. Because if you weren't so clueless, you'd be a huge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fan, eagerly awaiting the coming socialist nirvana.

At 5:45 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, TMZ first broke the news that Democratic lawyer and 2020 presidential hopeful Michael Avenatti was arrested by Los Angeles police on domestic violence charges.
