[See NewsBusters for more.] Recently, Republicans in state legislatures across the country have passed legislation on everything from election reform to critical race theory to The 1619 Project to preserving the competitive integrity of women's sports. All of this was very confusing to MTP Daily host Chuck Todd and political editor Carrie Dann who agreed with Democrats that the GOP is in search for solutions to problems that don't exist.
Todd kicked off his Friday show by playing a clip from earlier in the day when West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice could not provide an example to fellow MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle of a West Virginian transgender athlete attempting to get an unfair competitive advantage. For Todd, that proves, "Taken together, this Republican Party appears to be knitted together more by cultural warfare and Trump-style cable TV propaganda grievances than anything else."
