Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, liberal comedian and Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah injected lame comedy into the show's final segment as he cracked that, in the week ahead, Donald Trump might pick David Duke as a Supreme Court justice or someone who "hates the environment" for EPA administrator.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, allegedly right-leaning Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin declared that the incoming Donald Trump administration's talk of dealing with the illegal immigration problem is "nothing but extreme racism" and an "outrage," as she complained that too much of the focus has been on Hispanics crossing the border from Mexico, rather than visa overstays which include immigrants from other continents.
Former New York Times reporter David Cay Johnston has found a calling, and it's to take down Donald Trump by any means necessary, including assigning the R-word — racist — to the President-elect's desired policies. In his most recent attack during an MSNBC interview, Johnston effectively smeared every American who wants to see Obamacare repealed as either a racist or someone providing aid and comfort to racists and white supremacists.
On the heels of her Twitter meltdown over Donald Trump unexpectedly defeating Hillary Clinton, MSNBC host Joy Reid's AM Joy show on Saturday was not surprisingly chock full of race obsession. From guests accusing white voters of voting against their interests because of racism, to Reid claiming that there would be "neo-Nazism" in the White House, to accusations that black New Yorkers were "terrified" when Rudy Giuliani was mayor, racism was a recurring topic throughout the two hours of the show.
Liberal MSNBC host Joy Reid has been in meltdown mode since the news of Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton, as evidenced by some of her over the top tweets from the past couple of days as she has tried to link Trump and even his supporters to neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. On Thursday, reacting to news that the Trump campaign's Steve Bannon would work in the White House, Reid snarked that the move amounted to "bringing neonazism in from the cold and giving it West Wing power."
NPR’s anchor/activist Maria Hinojosa uncorked wacky Holocaust analogies on MSNBC on Saturday morning. Trump surrogate Steve Cortes dared to use the word “illegals” in a panel discussion, and Hinojosa made faces and broke out the language-police lecture. Somehow, it’s okay for Hinojosa to compare Trump to the Nazis and imply illegal aliens fear death camps, but you can’t say “illegal alien.”
On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of the possibility Donald Trump might start a right-wing news network, host Joy Reid suggested that such a network could exist for some on the right who think "Fox News doesn't hate Muslims enough." Liberal comedian and Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah then cracked that some believe Fox News is "too lazy to join the Klan," and, after recalling incidents of the word "Trump" being used to vandalize mosques, declared "the name 'Trump' is becoming a modern day version of the Swastika."
During Saturday's edition of MSNBC's AM Joy program, host Joy Reid disagreed with the chairman of the Black Republican Caucus of Florida, Sean P. Jackson, when he said that if it was not for Republicans, African-Americans would still be enslaved.
“Sean, Abraham Lincoln is long dead. Let’s talk about the current Republican nominee,” Reid said. “I think the reason African-Americans have civil rights is because African-Americans fought for them.”
MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who was swift to condemn Republican concerns of voter fraud, was equally as fast at accusing them of plotting to steal the election. Reid’s concern centered on a computer system called CrossCheck which was developed to find duplicate names on the voter rolls so they can be removed. But Reid and her guest Rolling Stone writer Greg Palast, who brought the issue to her attention, accuse the system of targeting minorities. “The system disproportionality targets voters of color who are likely to have common surnames, like Washington or Hernandez,” Reid stated.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid was back at it again, Saturday, shouting down a conservative guest when they talked about the facts she wants to remain hidden. This time she shouted down Alfonso Aguilar, the President of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, for daring to mention Planned Parenthood and Founder Margaret Sanger’s entrenched past in the eugenics movement. “Planned Parenthood is not a eugenicist organization,” Reid exclaimed loudly on AM Joy, “I think that is incredibly offensive.”
Sparks flew on MSNBC’s AM Joy Sunday as host Joy Reid shouted down Amy Kremer, former Chair of Tea Party Express, for daring to mention there are roughly 30,000 missing e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s personal server. “You just invented it an entire thing,” Reid shouted, “There’s no 33,000 e-mails that are going to harm our national security.” From there Reid refused to let Kremer speak anymore. And when Kremer asked to finish her point, “Not if you’re going to invent things,” Reid reprimanded her.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was up early dithering away on Saturday morning minutes before Donald Trump unveiled Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate when he went off script and shocked breaking news anchor Brian Williams by insinuating that there will be violence at the Republican National Convention (RNC) like the 1968 Democratic National Convention (DNC).
