Mike Barnicle on President Ronald Reagan's comments from 1984

Continuing the conversation about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s supposed ignorance over former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke’s endorsement over the weekend, Mike Barnicle reminds the MSNBC Morning Joe panel of another Republican presidential candidate’s comments on the KKK, President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Reagan said: “Those of us in public life can only resent the use of our names by those who seek political recognition for the repugnant doctrines of hate they espouse. The politics of racial hatred and religious bigotry practiced by the Klan and others have no place in this country, and are destructive of the values for which America has always stood.” Listen to the comments of Trump and the Morning Joe panel.
