Watch Chris Hayes' epic takedown of GOP congressman fighting to maintain minority rule in America

Published 2 hours ago on August 30, 2019

By Bob Brigham

MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes demolished a Republican congressman from Texas for fighting against the concept of one person, one vote.

“So the Republicans this week were attacking … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and in their defense, they do that every week. I don’t know why. She drives them nuts for some reason,” Hayes explained to the live studio audience and TV viewers.

“This week they were attacking her because she went after an institution that has become kind of sacred, I think, to Republicans, and that’s the Electoral College,” he explained.

“AOC’s argument was basically that the Electoral College unfairly diminishes the voting power of some Americans and therefore is incompatible with our basic democratic commitments. That was the argument,” Hayes explained. “Republicans flipped out, all right. They went after her very hard.”

4. I had to reply to a twitter fight about this a couple weeks ago.

This guy was like "Without the Electoral College, unpopulated areas are not fairly represented!"

I replied, "If a politician makes a speech in an unpopulated area of Wyoming and nobody is there to hear it, does it sound like representation?"
