CNN/MSNBC legal analyst Midwin Charles has died

I'm really shocked. She was young. I enjoyed listening to her on a range of serious legal topics on news panels. She also appeared on the Wendy Williams show talking about legal issues celebs faced.

I was just watching her very recently on MSNBC. What happened?

by Anonymousreply 104/06/2021

She stopped living.

by Anonymousreply 204/06/2021

R1 no cause of death has been mentioned by her family and so far no reporting.

For a second I thought it might have been the British woman who has been on Wendy's show. But evidently it's not. I don't recognize Midwin. RIP.

love this pic she posted less than 2 months ago

Internal bleeding related to a procedure performed in February, apparently. Reports that doctors ignored self-reports of pain.

by Anonymousreply 704/06/2021

Sad. She was very pretty. And so young.

by Anonymousreply 804/06/2021

Are you serious r7? That's awful, if true. Women in general, but especially black women, often have their medical issues or complaints of pain ignored by doctors. This won't help that impression.

One less lawyer in this country. That's good news.

She was on Wendy after the election, and annihilated Trump (along with her staffers). RIP Midwin.

had no idea she was 47. She looked no more than 35.

so sad. Smart, successful, beautiful and reading on twitter a lot of people say she was kind too

According to her Instagram, she was vaccinated in March 1st. She would have been due for her second vaccine three weeks later, and on March 19th she posted that she wasn't feeling well. Her last post on Twitter was March 24th. I wonder if she got her second vaccine around that time.

by Anonymousreply 1404/07/2021

^ *on* March 1st.

by Anonymousreply 1504/07/2021

Wow this sucks! RIP

by Anonymousreply 1604/07/2021

It wasn't the vaccine and I'm sick of the anti-vaxxers claiming everyone who dies secretly died because of vaccination.

by Anonymousreply 1704/07/2021

R10 types unlettered and should stop existing!

Very sad, especially if true that doctors ignored her pain post procedure.

I watched so much MSNBC, and enjoy legal analysts, but I just can’t place her.


by Anonymousreply 1904/07/2021

Damn, I hate to hear this. I really liked her. RIP.

by Anonymousreply 2004/07/2021

I'm not an anti-vaxxer, R17. The timing makes me wonder (she was due for her 2nd shot around the time she died), as does the fact that she was healthy days before. I don't find the explanation at R7 reasonable.

by Anonymousreply 2104/07/2021

Her last IG live was March 12th and last TV appearance was the 14th, R21. That's too long for her to have gotten ill from the first Pfizer shot (especially since she looked fine for two weeks after getting that shot) and well before she would have gotten the second Pfizer shot.

It had nothing to do with the vaccine, but people like you are trying it.

by Anonymousreply 2204/07/2021

R22, when the damage the vaccine does finally comes out to the public, are you going to repair it?

by Anonymousreply 2304/07/2021

Are you privy to some super-secret vaccine data the public isn't, R23?

by Anonymousreply 2404/07/2021

Dear Armchair DL Physicians: stop trying to make this be in ANY way related to the vaccine.


by Anonymousreply 2504/07/2021

R22, she tweeted on March 24th, and her last Instagram post was March 19th. She would have been scheduled for her 2nd Pfizer shot 3 weeks from her first shot on March 1st, so somewhere around March 21st. (Also, she seemed very happy and well on March 15th when she tweeted about her mother.)

by Anonymousreply 2604/07/2021

This is so terribly sad. She was beautiful, highly intelligent and so young. How devastating for her family. RIP.

by Anonymousreply 2704/07/2021

Was she gay?

by Anonymousreply 2804/07/2021

[quote]she tweeted on March 24th

Well then the Pfizer vaccine must be responsible for her death, so glad you cracked the case, Nancy Moo.

by Anonymousreply 2904/07/2021

The fact of the matter is we don’t know the long term effects of the vaccine. It’s not FDA approved and you sign a waver saying that if it kills you you can’t sue. That doesn’t mean she or anyone has died from it for sure but they could. We won’t know until years down the line. We simply weigh the benefits vs the risks and getting Covid and shutting down the economy has deemed the vaccine worth the risk.

by Anonymousreply 3004/07/2021

And BTW, gays who lived through the AIDS crisis are right to question medical treatment. They know first hand how supposed good treatments can kill you.

by Anonymousreply 3104/07/2021

clearly she had an underlying health issue. It's beyond crazy to blame the vaccine

by Anonymousreply 3204/07/2021

She tweeted that she was asthmatic and she wanted to get an Epi-pen to take with her for her first shot, but insurance wouldn't pay for it so she had to pay out of pocket. She also apparently recently had some surgery, though I couldn't find much about that.

Midwin advocated for the vaccine for months, which is why the anti-vaxxer conspiracists want her to have died from it, they're just itching to be able to say "I told you so" to a dead woman. It's messed up.

by Anonymousreply 3304/07/2021

At least with her eyes closed we won't have those crossed-eyes to upset us any more. Therefore


But sudden deaths need to have the cause or suspected cause announced or people wonder. Since the "Esquire" lived as a media "analyst," the family is just keeping the media bullshit going.

Midwin. Such a difficult name, that.

by Anonymousreply 3404/07/2021

You are an ugly person, R34.

by Anonymousreply 3504/07/2021

Procedures are usually cosmetic but it could have been a colonoscopy. One of the risks is a perforated bowel. Or it might be lipo.

by Anonymousreply 3604/07/2021

I teared-up when her death was announced this morning--the sudden loss of such a beautiful, brilliant, poised and accomplished person leaves me shaking my head in grief.

Rest in peace, Ms. Charles.

by Anonymousreply 3704/07/2021

R32, so you know the vaccine is 100% safe and you will personally vouch for what's inside the vaccine?

by Anonymousreply 3804/07/2021

[quote]It's beyond crazy to blame the vaccine

I think it's irresponsible not to consider it.

by Anonymousreply 3904/07/2021

“Midwin” is one of the oddest first names I think I’ve ever seen. Reminds me of “midwife”. I wonder what the story is.

She was much too young to die. May she rest in peace.

by Anonymousreply 4004/08/2021

R40 Midwin sounds (Haitian) Creole, so my guess is her family origins are from Haiti.

by Anonymousreply 4104/08/2021


by Anonymousreply 4204/08/2021

Yes - she's first or second generation Haitian.

And it's better than Apple or Peaches (as a first name) - jmho

by Anonymousreply 4304/08/2021

So there is speculation she died just after getting the jab.

by Anonymousreply 4404/10/2021

Has anything related to cause of death been released? I'm genuinely curious whether it was complications from vaccination. Blood clot?

by Anonymousreply 4504/12/2021

I haven’t heard of her but Midwin is a lovely name. I’ve never seen it before.

by Anonymousreply 4604/12/2021

Very sad what happened to her. I hope her family get through this. I really hope it wasn't the experimental medical treatment, but I get the feeling it was.
