(Studio: John Berman) Earlier discussion held with Representative Jerry Connolly about the controversy over the firing by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan of House of Representatives chaplain Patrick Conroy; chaplain's prayer about the tax law quoted. [CONNOLLY - says Ryan has given no official reasons for the firing of Conroy; defends Conroy's prayer; comments on the suggestions the next chaplain have a spouse &/or children: discriminatory against Catholics, a recourse to get Conroy back unless there is a justification from Ryan.]
