Show-Me 'Slave State' Declaration By MSNBC Host Joy Reid Talking To Claire McCaskill

MSNBC host Joy Reid declared the state of Missouri a "slave state" for women on Wednesday.

Reid made the claim during a segment about the debate around contraception bills that has raged in the U.S. Senate as well as several states.
