SUNDAY EXCLUSIVE: PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE GOV. SCOTT WALKER (R-W.I.)

KATRINA, 10 YEARS LATER
Trymaine Lee, MSNBC national correspondent, revisits the lower Ninth Ward where he covered Hurricane Katrina ten years ago for The Times- Picayune, and author Malcolm Gladwell talks with Chuck about what social science data is saying about the effect of hurricane evacuations. Did some parts of New Orleans have to be destroyed in order to be saved?
“Katrina reminds us that sometimes a clean break with the past has its advantages.” –Gladwell writes in The New Yorker’s “Starting Over”
“I SHOULD HAVE USED TWO EMAILS… I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THAT DECISION.”
Hillary Clinton continues to address the email controversy plaguing her campaign, with some criticizing her transparency for being too late. Speculation of a potential Biden presidential run also continues, and many Democrats suggest Clinton may be a better candidate with tougher competition for the party nomination. The panel discusses all this and more from the week in politics.
