Former attorney general Eric Holder said that America has never been "great," on MSNBC'sThe Beat.
Holder's comment came in response to a question from host Ari Melber about how it was possible to call America a "leader as a democracy" during the 1800s when women and African-Americans could not vote.
America has never been a democracy. But I digress…
"When I hear these things about ‘Let's make America great again,' I think to myself: ‘Exactly when did you think America was great?'" Holder then pointed to instances in the United States past when he said America was not "great."
