On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance declared that veterans who "love Trump" are "not honorable" during a discussion of some of President Donald Trump's history of trashing Senator John McCain. And a bit earlier, the MSNBC analyst claimed that efforts to combat illegal immigration are a part of "institutionalized bigotry" and "racism" toward Latin Americans.
On Wednesday, Fox News's Tucker Carlson highlighted MS-13's call for its members to kill police officers in Nassau County on Long Island. Only a few months ago, many members of the establishment press were criticizing the Trump administration's targeting of the gang in its law-enforcement efforts. They and the national press in general have been disgracefully quiet about this latest development.
Now that the demand for Laura Ingraham’s show be strangled in its crib has failed? Now that yet another attempt to whack Sean Hannity off the air has gone with the wind? Now comes the Case of Joy Reid. Suddenly, the liberal “get the host” guns have gone silent.
On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid addressed reports of a blog she formerly posted on which contained surprisingly anti-gay messages, which led her this past week to claim the website had been hacked and that she had not actually written the comments. But, on her weekend show, Reid backtracked a bit and did not unequivocally deny that she might have written the postings as she oddly stated that "I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things."
On his Wednesday evening Fox News show, Tucker Carlson scorched MSNBC's Joy Reid, described at the New York Times in February as a "Heroine of the Resistance," for claiming that 12 year-old posts at her now-defunct blog were somehow retroactively hacked to make her look even more bigoted against homosexual behavior than the posts she admitted to writing in 2007-2009 back in December.
During Saturday's edition of AM Joy, host Joy Reid opened her show with video footage from a 1972 edition of NBC Nightly News announcing that the Democratic National Committee had filed a lawsuit against the Committee for the Re-Election of the President and five men who had broken into the Democratic National Committee's Headquarters at the Watergate Complex.
On Sunday's AM Joy, during a discussion of her interview with pro-gun liberal rapper Killer Mike, host Joy Reid suggested that the NRA had railed against President Barack Obama because he is black, and MSNBC contributor Toure Neblett accused the pro-gun group of not doing anything to defend minority gun owners. The segment seemed oblivious to a recent video released by NRA TV's Colion Noir which recounted NRA's history of defending gun rights for blacks, including in recent years helping residents of Chicago and Delaware sue for their gun ownership rights.
Tin foil hats were bountiful on Saturday morning’s AM Joy as MSNBC host Joy Reid laid out a conspiracy theory for the ages, hyperventilating over a scenario in which President Trump refuses a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and is either arrested by U.S. Marshall or barricades himself in the White House.
On Easter Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of white evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump, liberal Christian activist Frank Schaeffer -- a critic of conservative Christians -- suggested that FNC host Laura Ingraham and other Trump supporters are bad Christians who are engaging in a "betrayal of the teaching of Jesus."
On Sunday's AM Joy, host Joy Reid and her panel were again hating on the NRA, this time smearing the pro-gun group with a conspiracy theory that it recently had black rapper Killer Mike -- who notably supported Bernie Sanders for President -- as a guest for the purpose of scaring members to become afraid of blacks and therefore to buy more guns. Frequent guest Michelle Bernard -- who has been an MSNBC contributor and a columnist for Roll Call -- pushed the theory, inspiring agreement from Reid.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's AM Joy, frequent guest and Huffington Post columnist Kurt Bardella accused the NRA of trying to incite its followers to "take matters into their own hands" by criticizing the dominant media's bias against Second Amendment supporters, and declared that "the NRA has blood on their hands" if the media face a violent attack.
On Saturday's AM Joy, host Joy Reid led another panel discussion that vilified the NRA and supporters of gun rights as the MSNBC host suggested that the NRA does not care about armed teachers shooting black students by mistake, and tried to link the pro-gun group to a man arrested for making death threats against one of her guests, former Florida Republican Rep. David Jolly. Jolly -- a liberal Republican known for appearing on both MSNBC and CNN as a frequent guest to lambaste his fellow Republicans -- complained that the NRA has "indoctrinated today's generation of Republican leaders."
