Brian Williams: ‘Frustrated’ ‘African-American President’ Laments Court Loss

‘This first African-American president reminding his fellow Americans that all of us are from folks who came from somewhere else’

WILLIAMS: "In a paralyzed city reacting to a paralyzed, I.E. tied, Supreme Court with an outstanding vacancy, the President, who is so often motivated to come into that briefing room and before cameras in a combination of sadness and frustration, displayed both today, taking a big shot at Republicans, at the paralysis that effects Washington, that rules Washington, even Donald Trump’s wall on the way out. And a big statement there on immigration. This first African-American president reminding his fellow Americans that all of us are from folks who came from somewhere else."
