Join Brian Williams as he delivers the latest updates on evolving news stories and places the major political events of the day into context.
Here's the Latest Episode from The 11th Hour with Brian Williams – Brian Williams, MSNBC:
With just eight days left until Election Day, Trump held multiple packed rallies while Biden blasted the president after his chief of staff said we are 'not going to control the pandemic.' We discuss that, plus the terrible surge of the Covid-19 pandemic with Ashley Parker, Eugene Robinson, Robert Costa, Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Dr. Rob Davidson, and Carlos Watson.
As the U.S. sets another single-day Covid-19 case record, Joe Biden laid out a detailed response plan. Trump, meanwhile, held two packed rallies in Florida. We talk about the state of the race with just days left to go with Susan Page, Peter Baker, Dr. Kavita Patel, Jenna Arnold, Baratunde Thurston, and Michael Moore.
The final Biden-Trump debate was calmer than the first. But while Biden relied on simple messages to a nation, Trump relied on conspiracy, lies, and rightwing talking points. We discuss it all with Claire McCaskill, Lawrence O'Donnell, Eugene Robinson, David Plouffe, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Ari Melber, Mike Murphy, James Carville, Biden aide Symone Sanders, Robert Gibbs, Alicia Menendez, Robert Costa, Jon Meacham, and Dr. Vin Gupta.
With just hours until the final Biden-Trump debate, Joe Biden spent the last day before the final presidential debate preparing for his face-to-face with Trump while Barack Obama hit the trail. Meanwhile, Trump held yet another huge rally ignoring the risk to his supporters from Covid-19. We discuss that and more with Jonathan Lemire, Annie Karni, Jason Johnson, Jo Ling Kent, Frank Figliuzzi, Emily Jane Fox, and Dr. Irwin Redlener.
At yet another packed rally in a state where Covid-19 cases are increasing, the president said the nation is 'rounding the turn' on the pandemic. But he's been saying that since early September. We look at that and preview the final presidential debate with Philip Rucker, Kimberly Atkins, Robert Costa, Michael Steele, Steve Schmidt, and Diana Berrent.
