Melissa Harris-Perry Goes a Little Nuts When Paul Ryan Called a ‘Hard Worker’

“I want us to be super careful when we use the language ‘hard worker,’ because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall, because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like. So, I feel you that he’s a hard worker, I do, but in the context of relative privilege.” -MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on her show, speaking in response to someone calling Rep. Paul Ryan a “hard worker.”

Note: Harris-Perry was no longer with MSNBC as of August 2017.
