Alex’s mother, Tin Swe Thant, is an immigrant from Burma. I’ve always thought Alex was cute, but one thing that always struck me as odd about her was that no matter how horrible the story, she always presented it with a smile.
Alexandra Swe “Alex” Wagner (born December 4, 1977) was an American TV host and liberal political commentator, and was the anchor for the last four years of the daytime program Now with Alex Wagner on MSNBC, before its recent cancellation. From 2003 to 2007, she was editor-in-chief of The Fader magazine, covering music and cultural movements from around the world. From there she jumped into political commentary. As you can see from the bit of video below from her Fader days, it looks like Alex has aged quite a bit in just the last eight years or so. I guess politics can do that to you.
