To say that Joy Reid has impeachment on the noggin is a vast understatement. Once again today, she devoted the great majority of her MSNBC show to pushing impeachment. For our readers' entertainment, we've put together a mashup in which the I-word was used no fewer than 46 times in a variety of forms and contexts—and we might have missed a few!
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, guest Elie Mystal blames white Democrats, who he depicts as "three white truck drivers in a diner," for the failure of Democrat leadership in Congress to commence impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Mystal says that, in contrast, black and brown Democrats "overwhelmingly" support impeachment, and that at some point, Nancy Pelosi must acknowledge her base.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's AM Joy, liberal MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson spewed vitriol at several Donald Trump administration members as he called for the President's impeachment, declared that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had essentially been pushed to say "I hate black people," and that HUD Secetary Ben Carson was exposed to be a "sexist fool." He also claimed that he would burn his copies of Dr. Carson's bestselling book, Gifted Hands.
Appearing on Joy Reid's MSNBC show, a ghoulish Rick Wilson, billed as a Republican media strategist, urges Democrats to pursue impeachment by raising the "body count" among members of the Trump administration, inflicting a "death of 1,000 cuts," and raising the "pain level." He also analogizes President Trump to OJ Simpson.
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid says that recently-adopted abortion laws are "send women back to the Dark Ages," and are essentially "turning all of America into Gilead from The Handmaid's Tale."
On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid claims that during the Bush era, "we were . . . starving people in Guantanamo." MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance then accuses President Trump of having pardoned a former Army officer, convicted of killing a suspected al Qaeda terrorist, for purposes of "greenlighting actual offenses by people who support their side."
The Joy Reid show stokes fears that President Trump will refuse to leave office if he is defeated in the 2020 election, saying there is a "significant threat" of that happening, and drawing parallels to the Watergate era, asserting that President Nixon floated the notion of using military force to remain in power.
On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during discussions of President Donald Trump and the Russia investigation, not only did MSNBC justice analyst Matthew Miller dismiss Republicans as being in a "right-wing coccoon" that is rewarded by Fox News for "bad behavior," but terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance likened Trump to the "evil" Darth Vader licking the boots of Vladimir Putin as the Emperor.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, a hyperbolic Malcolm Nance goes on an agitated rant, warning among other things that the nation could end of President Trump wins re-election in 2020.
MSNBC host and notorious hate-monger, Joy Reid was excited Sunday morning, during AM Joy, as reporter Mike Viqueira came on with “breaking news”. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was spotted leaving church. “This is, you know, what some people would characterize as an ambush interview of a man coming out of Easter services at a church,” he admitted. “Some passersby weren't happy that we were doing that.”
Appearing on today's AM Joy, former New York Times reporter David Cay Johnston claimed that President Trump's grandfather, Friedrich Trump, built the first Trump fortune by "running whorehouses." That is a claim that is unverified, at best. The Washington Post wrote that the definitive biographer of the Trump family Gwenda Blair, "was careful not to say that Trump ran brothels. I think we don’t quite know that.” And in 2015, even the liberals at Snopes.com addressed the question: "Did Donald Trump’s Grandfather Make His Fortune in Prostitution?" Snopes ruled: Mostly False.
Over the weekend, as several MSNBC shows covered the backlash to Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar dismissively referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as "some people did something," it was repeatedly claimed that President Donald Trump and other conservatives took her words "out of context." Host David Gura even went so far as to make the ridiculous claim that her comments were similar to President George W. Bush's iconic speech delivered at Ground Zero a few days after the attacks.
