MSNBC Guest Thinks You Should Care More About Jan 6 Than Inflation

News & Politics

You can’t afford to buy groceries for your family, or pay to fill up your tank to get to and from work but don’t worry, MSNBC thinks you should care more about the upcoming partisan Democrat congressional committee hearings on the January 6 riot at the United States Capitol that happened a year and a half ago. 

During MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports On Monday, anchor Andrea Mitchell and NBC Washington correspondent Yamiche Alcindor were previewing the upcoming January 6 hearings. 

After reading a tweet from Never-Trump Congresswoman Liz Cheney, about the importance of the Republican Party focusing on the Capitol riots, Mitchell turned to Alcindor and whined that “she and Jamie Raskin and others are saying this hearing has to tell people why this is so important.”

“This is about the American experiment and whether or not we want our democracy to fall apart or whether or not we want to look at what happened on January 6 and be cautioned by it and learn from it and really understand what happened,” Alcindor added.

She also wanted Americans to know that “the biggest challenge for lawmakers here as they talk about these sort of huge ideas of American democracy and sort of the experiment that we’re all living and benefitting from possibly being brought to its knees is whether or not they can make people care.” 

“There’s so many things that people are juggling between gas prices and inflation, baby formula, abortion, and the shootings that are happening,” Alcindor said dismissively before suggesting that “these lawmakers are going to try to have a narrative to focus the country’s attention to say look at this thing. Do not turn away.”  

While attempting to preempt any well-deserved backlash that was coming her way after these comments, she hedged: “while all those other things are really really important, the foundation of our country, what makes our country function is a democracy that we have to protect.” 

Good luck getting Americans to care more about a riot from seventeen months ago when inflation and gas prices are at record highs.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports
6/6/2022
12:49 p.m. Eastern

ANDREA MITCHELL: Congresswoman Liz Cheney tweeting just this–moments ago that this is a moral test for the Republican Party, she writes, a test that she says too many in her party are failing. And she and Jamie Raskin and others are saying this hearing has to tell people why this is so important.

YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Well, it’s a poignant tweet from Liz Cheney, who has really weathered so much backlash within her party to take this stance. But she’s saying this is about democracy. This is about the American experiment and whether or not we want our democracy to fall apart or whether or not we want to look at what happened on January 6 and be cautioned by it and learn from it and really understand what happened. I think the biggest challenge for lawmakers here as they talk about these sort of huge ideas of American democracy and sort of the experiment that we’re all living and benefitting from possibly being brought to its knees is whether or not they can make people care, Andrea.

There’s so many things that people are juggling between gas prices and inflation, baby formula, abortion, and the shootings that are happening. These lawmakers are going to try to have a narrative to focus the country’s attention to say look at this thing. Do not turn away. And understand that while all those other things are really really important, the foundation of our country, what makes our country function is a democracy that we have to protect. And they’re going to have to do that in the face of Republicans who are lying still about the 2020 election and who are getting elected and installing people who have the really motivations that what happened and why people broke into the Capitol in the first place.
