The setting: Joy Reid is leading a discussion of the late Captain Humayun Khan, whose father Khizr Khan gave an impassioned anti-Trump speech at the DNC this week. MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance, also a combat veteran, is in the process of telling Trumpists to just shut the entire fuck up about Khan and his family when pro-Trump radio host Heidi Harris tried to chime in with what a hero she thinks Khan was. Nance was not trying to hear that:
