From the outrageous reactions to the State of the Union, to the controversy over a GOP lawmaker threatening to hurt a reporter... what we're covering tonight.
What’s coming your way tonight on PoliticsNation?
The GOP wasted no time bashing Pres. Obama after last night’s State of the Union speech. GOP Congressman Randy Weber took to Twitter calling Pres. Obama “Kommandant In Chef,” Sen. Mike Lee called Obamacare an inequality Godzilla, and Sen. Lindsey Graham said the world is “literally about to blow up” because of Obama’s Iran policy. Joining us to discuss just how out of touch that is will be MSNBC Contributors Joy Reid and Jimmy Williams.
Also, what does Pres. Obama’s “Year of Action” mean for America? As he embarks on a nationwide tour to push his plan to fight inequality, Rep. Donna Edwards of Maryland joins us to discuss his policy goals.
We’ll also be sticking with the various investigations plaguing on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s office. What’s it like inside his administration and who are his allies? New Jersey Environmental Federation Campaign Director David Pringle and MSNBC Contributor Jonathan Capehart join us as we take a look inside the Christie administration.
But Christie’s not the only guy getting accused of “bully politics,” today either, as GOP Rep. Michael Grimm makes headlines for threatening a reporter shortly after last night’s speech. Grimm has sinced apologized but has the damage already been done? Joining us to discuss is the Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim.
