MSNBC’s Geist Concedes: ‘To Listen to the President Speaking… It’s Impossible to Square His Argument’ on Georgia
GEIST: "Well, to listen to the president speaking right there is impossible to square his argument. One week ago he was calling for the all star game to be moved out of Atlanta and then shortly there after it was. Now he’s expressing concern about the idea of moving the masters because of the impact it might have on working people in and around the masters. So in other words, there wasn’t a lot of concern for the $100 million that experts say will be lost because the all star game leaves Atlanta. But now all of a sudden it feels like after a week of criticism some people are catching up and saying, oh, this actually hurts a bunch of the people that we’re trying to protect in this country right now. It’s also the position that everyone has put themselves in. We knew immediately wherever the all star game was moved, everyone would look clearly at the voting law there and say wait a minute, there are pieces of the voting law in Colorado that are worse than the one in Georgia. So, this is a game that probably the White House and maybe Major League Baseball on some levels wishes it hadn’t played at some point but here we are."
