Democracy:Biden's Summit for Hypocrisy!

US President Joe Biden had been in office for a few days when

he announced that he would hold a virtual "Summit for

Democracy" to "push back authoritarianism's advance"

worldwide.

But after the world watched the disregard for rule of law,

expansion of executive power and mistrust of elections spread

throughout the United States, the question is: What moral

authority does Washington have to lecture the rest of the world

about democracy?

Host Steve Clemons speaks with former US diplomat Daniel

Fried, Foreign Policy magazine columnist Elise Labott, and

Progressive International Coordinator David Adler about the

prospects for the summit.
