MSNBC Gets Roasted For Graphic of 2020 Contenders Comprised of All White Men

On Wednesday, MSNBC aired a graphic of 2020 Democratic contenders to watch.

They were all white men.

The move did not go unnoticed by those on Twitter which quickly noted there was just so, so much wrong with the picture.

It is important to note that the declared Democratic 2020 field already features more women and minorities than ever before. However, the MSNBC conversation was not about declared candidates — such as Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren  — but instead those who are mulling over or being bandied about as potential candidates, although the graphic title itself does not make that clear.

As one Twitter user quipped, the fact that these are potential candidates may explain why there are no women included.
