Joy Reid, MSNBC’s smug and sarcastic host, is often ripping into former President Donald Trump in one form or another.
Reid appeared on CBS’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Tuesday night to promote her book “Medgar & Myrlie.” Medgar Evers was assassinated on June 12, 1963. He was the most prominent civil rights leader of the time. His wife Myrlie continued his legacy by running unsuccessfully for a congressional position.
Reid compared Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and Myrlie Evers in a matter of seconds. Colbert set up Reid’s start in an equally shocking way.
What did you learn from your research that could be applied to the United States and our current divisions?
That was all Reid required (emphasis mine).
What I have learned is courage, and that’s the theme of this book. Think about the people who today are afraid to speak out against a former reality show president due to a tweet. Yes, people face death threats when they speak against him. But many of those people are wealthy and can afford to hire 24-hour security.
This is the final stage of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Reid talked a little bit about Medgar Evers and the civil rights movement in the 1960s. You know, her book is not about Donald Trump, but rather Medgar Evers.
It was an insurance salesman who was no longer making enough to pay for his insurance. These people fought for civil rights without any resources or support. I am inspired by the courage of those who disagree with me.
Reid used Toby Keith’s death as an awkward segue to praise the “political bravery” of Cheney, Kinzinger, and others.
Your Toby Keith segment is moving to me because I don’t agree with Adam Kinzinger. I strongly disagree with Liz Cheney’s politics. But that takes political courage.
Nonsense. Reid would have sent them to the next week if Cheney and Kinzinger had not been afflicted with TDS, but instead “stood for their country” in opposition to Nancy Pelosi.
Reid feigned a sickening scream as she ended her twisted diatribe:
If you love your kids, right? You’ll run to save them if there’s a house fire because you love your children. To have real courage, you need to tap into that love. So, that’s the lesson I learned: there was a lot of courage then, but today we have more resources and more courage. We need a little bit of courage to save our democracy.
America, yes, we have to save our country from Donald Trump, the devil’s child. Oh, and all his MAGA “extremists”, “white supremacists”, and other stuff.
We can also laugh at Joy Reid, and others like her, and do what is right in November. Then, the media that is afflicted with TDS will have never tasted better.
