MSNBC Guest Calls For "Torches And Pitchforks" Outside Trump Fundraiser At SoulCycle Owner's House

|

Thursday night on MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes," Elie Mystal, executive editor for the legal site "Above The Law," called for "pitchforks and torches" outside of the Long Island home of Equinox and SoulCycle founder Stephen Ross. Ross is scheduled to host a fundraiser for President Trump's re-election campaign there this weekend.

"People of Color are already targeted under this administration," Mystal said during a discussion about boycotting businesses whose owners publicly support Trump. "I have no problem with shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate."

"I mean I go further, I want pitchforks and torches outside this man's house in the Hamptons," Mystal continued. "I've been to the Hamptons, it's very nice. There's no reason why it has to be. There's no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There's no reason why people shouldn't be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood."

"Demonstrating, totally... There have been peaceful protests outside Mitch McConnell's house," host Chris Hayes added. "And I imagine there will be peaceful protests outside of this [fundraiser]. It is all speech, right? Peaceful protest. The right to assembly under the First Amendment."
