MSNBC Analyst Calls Dem Mass AG “Political Hack”

“I guess lawyers are like political hacks sometimes.”

MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber hit Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey as a “political hack” following Healey’s appearance on Nicolle Wallace’s program on Monday.

Healey tried to spin the Supreme Court decision that held up much of President Trump’s travel ban as a win for opponents of the president.

“I guess lawyers are like political hacks sometimes,” Melber said to laughs from the panel.

Melber added that the decision was “better than what [the Trump administration was] expecting.”

Healey has been mentioned as a possible 2018 challenger to popular Republican Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.
