Comments from Attorney General Jeff Sessions Thursday are reverberating in Hawaii and online. Sessions was criticizing a ruling from a judge in Hawaii that blocked President Trump's travel ban when he called the state "an island in the Pacific."

Many Hawaiians felt the description was dismissive of the 50th state.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti and Danielle Belton (@blacksnob) of The Root take a look at the reaction to that statement, and to Bill O'Reilly's departure from Fox News.

This segment aired on April 21, 2017.
