Bernie Sanders Pushes Back On Ageism: Look At The Totality Of The Person

Description:

Senator Bernie Sanders, 2020 Democratic candidate for president, talks with Rachel Maddow about he thinks Eric Swalwell's "pass the torch" remarks at the first Democratic debate were ageist, and why youth alone is not an automatic qualification for leadership.


Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari on the state of the U.S. consumer, the housing market, wage growth, the stock market and modern monetary theory.
Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank calls Bernie Sanders the "Trump of the Left.". Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
Remarks by Alison Smale, Under Secretary-General for Global Communications, at the Opening of the session of the Committee on Information
Two tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman, less than a month after four other ships were struck in the region.
The two ships -- one carrying oil and the other transporting a cargo of chemicals -- were struck in international waters near the strategically important Strait of Hormuz.
All crew members were evacuated and were safe, according to the owners of the two ships. The US Navy said it was providing assistance.
