MSNBC contributor Elie Mystal went on a racist rant about how white people become violent when they “don’t politically get their way all the damn time.”
The segment was discussing former President Donald Trump’s assertion that there will be “problems” if he is indicted.
Trump, of course, was talking about how the public would be outraged.
“Let’s start here, OK, let’s start with the problem of the fourth estate, the American media,” Mystal said.
Mystal first took aim at radio host Hugh Hewitt, who was interviewing Trump, when the comments were made.
“Listen to that clip again – Hugh Hewitt made himself sound like Billy Bush in that clip, right? ‘What kind of problems, mister president?’ He is threatening to unleash domestic terrorism on the country if he is held accountable for crime, and you, a media person, is sitting there saying, ‘What kind of problems might we have?’ What is that? What is that?”

The unhinged pundit went on to say that interviewing the former president is “complicity” in allowing “white domestic terrorists to organize.”
“At some point, the fourth estate is going to have to realize its complicity in allowing these white domestic terrorists to organize and attain some level of legitimacy as they threaten our democracy.”
“I want to table that because that is a huge part of the problem,” Mystal continued.
At this point, Mystal went all in on his racism against white people.
“The cause of the problem, of course, is Trump himself and his MAGA acolytes themselves and the people who are willing to do the violence in Trump’s name. Again, I want to say that I’m not surprised that he is threatening this because a – he is literally doing it before, and b – this is literally what conservative white folks do when they don’t get their way,” Mystal said without being corrected or redirected by the network’s host.
“They turned violent. As a black man in this country, as a person who is aware of the black history in the new world, white people turn violent when they don’t politically get their way all the damn time in this country,” the rant continued. “It is what they do. And from the perspective of a black person, welcome to the world I’ve been living in America threatening to turn violence against non-black people.”
