During the final segment of Saturday’s edition of AM Joy, host Joy Reid interviewed Brenda Wineapple, author of the book The Impeachers: The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation. Reid prefaced the interview by comparing President Trump to the notoriously racist President Johnson, whom she described as “another presidential villain.” The MSNBC host repeatedly doubled down on that comparison in addition to advancing the myth that the two major political parties “reversed” in the time between the Civil War and the present day.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show today, MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance went on a rant about Trump's pardoning of Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher and other members of the military. Among other things, speaking of the Telly Savalas character in The Dirty Dozen—a murderer and rapist—Nance said: "It's almost as if Donald Trump thought, 'hey, that's my favorite character!' He has a mindset of where he thinks his personal toughness is men doing horrible things."
Just how unknowledgeable about the economy is Joy Reid? So much so that it drove even the liberal Ron Insana . . . insane, obliging him to correct her misstatements.
Whether it was Lyin’ Brian still having a job, an array of takes on Joe Biden’s latest gaffe, Joy Reid suggesting unifying the country wasn’t important, or Michael Moore being Michael Moore, MSNBC’s post-debate coverage had it all late Wednesday and early Thursday. And in the closing segment, their final thoughts started off on well with Hardball host Chris Matthews warning Democrats for alienating Americans on cultural issues and often being too demeaning to America as an idea. But things were quickly thrown away by Moore, Reid, and Schmidt.
Well past midnight Thursday and in the latter stages of MSNBC’s post-Democratic debate analysis, AM Joy host Joy Reid uncorked a rant ripping into South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the notion of speaking about America in optimistic tones, and wanting to unite Americans because “Donald Trump is dangerous” to minorities, including Reid and her family.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, regular guest Tiffany Cross blames white media executives and the voters for Kamala Harris's poor performance in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, Sunday, regular guest Tiffany Cross announced that she was going to ignore the taboo against blaming the voters. She proceeded to blame them, citing the reaction of listeners to Harris's interview on The Breakfast Club podcast with Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy.
Liberals love to condescend to conservatives, imagining us to be a bunch of benighted rubes. We poor, misguided souls will see the light once the veil is lifted from our eyes by kindly liberals carefully explaining things at a level within the ken of our limited intellectual capacity. Combine that with the trope of relatives arguing politics over Thanksgiving, and you have Joy Reid this morning on her MSNBC show. She imagined a "cranky Uncle Roscoe" yelling "read the transcript!" She promised to provide viewers with all they needed to know about impeachment, so they could "easily explain [it] to Uncle Roscoe and Auntie Carol."
Aren’t all Americans jaded from the fawning media coverage President Trump receives on a daily basis? Of course, anyone who has watched the news over the past three years would know this statement is patently absurd. Yet, that did not halt MSNBC correspondent Tiffany Cross from laughably accusing the media of pro-Trump bias during the cable channel's post-debate analysis Tuesday night.
The screencap in the chyron—Could Impeachment Inquiry Land Trump Associates in Jail?—made Joy Reid's strategy this morning very clear. To get Trump associates to flip against the President, try to panic them with the possibility of prison.
Late last week, after word came that the former ambassador to Iraq, Joe Wilson, had passed away, MSNBC repeated some of the misinformation that journalists and other liberals pushed during the George W. Bush era as anchors Joy Reid and Katy Tur lauded Wilson for disputing President Bush's claims that Saddam Hussein had tried to acquire uranium in Africa before the invasion of Iraq.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, Gabe Sherman, an MSNBC contributor and author of a book about Fox News creator Roger Ailes, says that the case supporting the impeachment of President Trump is "a very simple story that even a Fox audience can understand."
Joy Reid plays the clip of President Nixon, facing impeachment, announcing his resignation. Former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks praises Nixon and condemns President Trump, saying, "[Nixon] actually understood what government is and he actually acted in the benefit of the country by resigning. I don’t think that Donald Trump has even the slightest shred of humility or understanding. I don’t think there's any chance that he would ever admit and resign in the interests of the American people."
