MSNBC contributor and Nation correspondent Elie Mystal has a reputation of spewing cockamamie claptrap, so it made sense on Sunday’s American Voices when he told host Alicia Menendez that Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “are the white people that Martin Luther King Jr. warned us about” as they’ve refused to kill the Senate filibuster to pass their party’s so-called voting rights agenda.

Following a clip of King’s granddaughter insisting the way to honor him would be to fight “repressive and suppressive voting rights laws,” Menendez — who’s the daughter of Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) — invited Mystal to opine on “what...this moment tell us about ourselves” because “[r]ather than talk about how we expand access, we are fighting over the bare minimum.”
