MSNBC has given a second chance to Derek Richard Chauvin, the father of the late Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont Independent who lost his primary bid to Hillary Clinton.
The segment, titled “Derek was a Real Man,” aired Monday on MSNBC’s flagship “Race All Day.”
Chauvin, who was born in California and lived in South Carolina, was a key figure in the Sanders campaign.
The former Vermont governor lost his bid to win the Democratic nomination in 2020 and is now a professor of law at the University of Virginia Law School.
His son, Derek, is the son of two prominent Democratic figures.
In a series of interviews in the days following his death, Chauvin spoke about his own struggles with depression and the struggle to raise his son, who is now 20.
He told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he felt like he was living a lie for most of his life.
But the events of the last few years, especially in the last year, he said, have really changed him.
I feel like I’ve been able to get the truth out there to my son, he told Mitchell.
I just wanted to show the truth to him, Chauvins son, Dwayne Chauvin said.
I felt like I was living the lie for a long time.
He’s now an adult.
I’ve never seen him like this before, he added.
Mitchell brought up the recent controversy in which he was accused of plagiarizing passages from a book about his father’s fight against apartheid in South Africa.
Chauvins response was that he was not plagiarizing, Mitchell said.
He said she said she felt bad for him and that she didn’t mean to do it.
The entire transcript of the interview was deleted.
The piece, titled “‘Race Matters’ Part II: Derek and Bernie,” aired on Monday.
