<p>With still nothing definitively known about the identity of the Munich, Germany attacker or attackers early Friday night, MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>MTP Daily </em>ushered the Brexit vote for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union into the conversation as an example of anti-refugee sentiment that, in their speculations, was behind the mall shooting in Germany.</p>
