The daughter of Eric Garner was invited to an ABC town hall with President Obama. She is not happy about how she was treated there. Ana Kasparian, Ben Makiewicz, and Kenny Hamilton, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“The daughter of Eric Garner, the man who died two years ago after New York City police placed him in a chokehold, walked out of an ABC News taping of a town hall with President Barack Obama Thursday in protest, saying network producers broke a promise to highlight her questions.

Erica Garner is now denouncing the session on race, saying she was “lied to” and was “railroaded” by ABC producers who ignored her questions for the president.

“ABC is using black lives as a rating and to get paid,” Garner told HuffPost in an exclusive video statement. “They guaranteed me that I would be asking the president direct questions about what’s going on. I was lied to.”
