Chris Hayes on GOP’s ‘Wall of Silence’ over Matt Gaetz’s Alleged Sex Trafficking: A ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil Response’

‘There is ways to issue statements’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HAYES: “For moron where the new bar in the Republican Party has been set, I am joined by former-White House director, public liaison under president Ronald Reagan. I have to say, I guess, at least the rick-scott statement is better than nothing. I mean, I — you know, you have been around politics. I’ve covered politics. Like, you know, people get accused stuff. Or you find there’s an investigation. There is ways to issue statements not saying, look, this definitely happened, that express concern. And there’s just been this total, like, see no evil, hear no evil response, so far.”
