Joy Reid made it look easy as she slapped down Christopher Rufo, the political operative who claims to be an expert on race because he works at a conservative think tank.
Under her persistent questioning, he did admit that he's not an expert in race or law, which is where critical race theory is actually grounded.
What he is, besides a longtime passenger on the wingnut think tank gravy train, is the architect of the plan to pound the American consciousness with the idea that virtually anything they don't like about Democrats is "critical race theory." It's a classic right-wing branding and propaganda campaign.
“The goal is to have the public read something crazy in the newspaper and immediately think 'critical race theory.’ We have decodified the term and will recodify it to annex the entire range of cultural constructions that are unpopular with Americans," he wrote on Twitter back in March.
Reid smiled warmly as Rufo said she was attacking him on air, when she was simply reading from his own mission statement.
Rufo claims in those talking points that the father of critical race theory was Ibram X. Kendi, who in a statement to Reid, said he wasn't a critical race theorist.
"I admire critical race theory but I don't identify as a critical race theorist. I'm not a legal scholar, so I wasn't trained on critical race theory," Kendi said.

The Senate is mere hours away from calling it a month and taking off for the Fourth of July recess, which will last until July 15. The House plans on being in for a few days next week, but then will be gone until July 19. That is, unless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Leader Chuck Schumer happen to notice that the country remains in a simmering crisis and decide that maybe working on legislation for just a handful of days between now and the middle of September is a bad idea. By a handful, I mean nine days for the House from July 2 until September 13, and 16 for the Senate.
Maybe in recognition of that, the Senate is possibly canceling recess for the week of Aug. 9. No final decision has been made, reportedly, but "senators have quietly been advised to keep their plans for that week fluid." The House, which is taking more time off but has also accomplished more than the Senate in the first half of this year, is still scheduled to be gone. A lot.
It's not as if there aren’t issues that have to be addressed by Pelosi, one of which is getting ridiculous and infuriating. She's giving the Senate until the end of this week to decide if they want to try another vote on the Jan. 6 commission before she moves on to decide whether to have a House select committee investigate. Let us review where we left that whole commission proposal.

The collapse of the multi-story building at 8777 Collins Avenue in Surfside happened about 2 a.m. EST, according to CNN:
(CNN) A multistory residential building partially collapsed early Thursday in the South Florida community of Surfside, killing at least one person and raising fears that others may be trapped under rubble.
The collapse happened around 2 a.m. ET. Video from the scene shows a side of the building -- more than 10 stories tall -- having fallen, with huge piles of rubble underneath and a large number of first responders.
One person there has died, and at least 10 others were treated on the scene, Surfside Mayor Charles W. Burkett said.
A family reunification center has been set up for anyone looking for unaccounted or missing relatives at 9301 Collins Avenue.
JUST IN: 7News has obtained surveillance video of the moment the Champlain Towers South Condo collapsed in Surfside early this morning.
According to a fire official, 35 people were pulled from the collapsed building. Search and rescue efforts ongoing. https://t.co/Ac7KgnJOSO pic.twitter.com/oeczbumRG9

● Buffalo, NY Mayor: Buffalo is poised to become the first major American city in more than 60 years to elect a self-described socialist as mayor following nurse India Walton's upset victory in Tuesday's Democratic primary against four-term incumbent Byron Brown. Walton would also be the first woman to lead New York's second-largest city.
Walton, a first-time candidate, holds a 52-45 lead over Brown, and while the margin may shift when absentee votes are tabulated, the Associated Press called the race for her Wednesday "after it became clear there weren't enough absentee ballots for Brown to overcome Walton's lead." Buffalo gave 80% of its vote to Joe Biden, and Walton should have no trouble in the November general election.
