MSNBC anchor Katy Tur claimed on Tuesday that there is a “tamer version” of “white nationalism” that is “now pretty mainstream in the Republican Party.”Interviewing University of Buffalo official Henry Lewis Taylor Jr., who is Black, on Katy Tur Reports, Tur asked for his reaction to President Joe Biden visiting Buffalo on Tuesday, just days after a shooting on Saturday at the Tops Friendly Markets, where Payton Gendron allegedly killed 10 people and wounded three others. “I wonder what you thought of President [Joe] Biden today, knowing that in some respects his hands are tied on the issue, at least of guns. There’s not enough support in Congress for gun legislation. Republicans are not widely in favor of it, so it can’t pass,” said Tur. The president labeled the shooting as domestic terrorism.
