On Saturday's AM Joy, several regular MSNBC panel members attacked the Republican party as a "racist party" whose leader, President Donald Trump, is engaging in "modern-day holocaust denial" and treats Hispanics like "animals" as host Joy Reid was joined by NBC News columnist Kurt Bardella, NPR's Maria Hinojosa, and Democratic pollster Fernand Amandi.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, Joy Reid hosted a panel that was predictably not happy with the Trump administration's plan to keep illegal immigrant families together until their court cases are concluded as Reid claimed that the detention centers would amount to a "gulag." And correspondent Mariana Atencio seemed to blame the U.S. for the "humanitarian problems" in Latin America, including her home country of Venezuela which is in a shambles because it elected a socialist government almost 20 years ago.
On Saturday's AM Joy, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's recent tweet on South African efforts to expropriate more land from white farmers, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson managed to squeeze in a complaint about Fox News daring to cover the discovery of murder victim Mollie Tibbett's body on the same day as breaking news on Paul Manafort's legal problems. In fact, Fox News Channel spent a great deal more time on the legal problems of Manafort and Michael Cohen than on the Tibbetts story the evening both stories broke.
On Sunday, panelists on MSNBC’s AM Joy attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his defense of religious liberty in the United States. Without question or dissent, Sessions was condemned in the harshest of terms. Host Joy Reid asked Minister Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove about his position that defending religious liberty is really only defending conservative Christians. He claimed: “I think this way that religious freedom is being framed is rooted in the history of slave holder religion and the way in the 20th century that it tried to justify discrimination.”
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during an update on the reunification of illegal immigrant children with their parents, MSNBC correspondent Mariana Atencio suggested that the enforcement of immigration laws by the Trump administration is motivated by "racism and xenophobia" as she recalled the cace of a detained illegal immigrant mother who is still waiting for her child to be reunified with her.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of the Tea Party movement's origin and evolution, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin charged that the movement is "angry about race" because President Donald Trump gave them permission to be, and ended up calling the GOP a "wackadoodle party." Host Joy Reid oddly continued to identify Rubin as "conservative" in spite of all the liberal positions she has taken on a number of issues since she began appearing regularly as a commentator on MSNBC.
Apparently sharing your wacky conspiracy theories is what counts for as news these days on MSNBC. Host Rachel Maddow sat down with Joy Reid on her AM Joy show July 21 to freak out about President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin last week, gushing that his behavior clearly meant that he was secretly colluding with the Russians.
On Sunday’s edition of AM Joy, a discussion on President Trump’s potential Supreme Court justice pick turned into a full frontal attack on Republicans and the party’s pro-life positions. Three separate guests lambasted the GOP as hypocrites not fit to accurately call themselves pro-life.
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid showed signs of being so far inside the liberal bubble that it's like she spent the last 20 years in an an alternative universe as she actually suggested that the dominant media were "enchanted" with George W. Bush and Sarah Palin because they spoke in a way that was not "erudite," but that Barack Obama was "disparaged" as "almost too erudite and too articulate."
Soopermexican at The Right Scoop reports MSNBC weekend host Joy Reid wrongly brought down Twitter rage on a woman who never yelled awful things at a Latino boy at a heated California meeting on immigration as accused, and Reid had to apologize. Either Reid is not a discerning judge of tweets, or her Twitter assistant should be dismissed. Her retweet came from an account called "CuddleSweet," with a banner with the word "ORGASM" in capital letters at the top. This does not scream "trusted news source."
On the Sunday edition of MSNBC’s AM Joy, apologists for California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters and incivility were out in full force. The Root’s Jason Johnson and The Beat DC’s Tiffany Cross both lent support to calls to harass Trump officials.
On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC contributor and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared that Sarah Huckabee Sanders deserves a "life sentence" of being harassed publicly as she asserted that the White House press secretary "has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss" because of her negative interactions with the press. The phony conservative columnist also freaked out over the possibility of abortion being banned, and suggested Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are "phony pro-choice women" if they vote for President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
