MSNBC host Joy Reid said that President Donald Trump is issuing a “threat to his fellow Americans” by using military tanks and planes in his Fourth of July Salute to America celebration in Washington, D.C.
President Trump plans to speak in front of the Lincoln Memorial and salute our military, of which he is Commander in Chief. Our military has yet to engage in a major regime-change war or costly nation-building experiment during Trump’s presidency, even as Trump pummeled ISIS in Syria with air strikes.
Joy Reid said that Trump “sort of aspires to be a mini-Putin or Kim Jong Un,” as evidenced by his patriotic American parade. Reid’s comments were flagged by the Washington Examiner.
“Who is that message to? It’s certainly not to tyrants because he likes tyrants, he loves tyrants. It’s not to Putin, it’s not to Kim Jong Un, it’s not to the Saudis,” Joy Reid stated.
“Is it to our friends? Is it to Western democracies, who he doesn’t particularly like? Or is it to us? Is it to the resistance in this country?” she said. “‘I got tanks, I have this military armada.’ The message is a threat. But it’s always a threat when you roll out your military. But it’s to whom is the threat, and I suspect that the threat is to his fellow Americans,” Joy Reid said.
“And I hate to say that, but I think that Donald Trump styles himself a tyrant, not a defeater of tyrants,” said Reid.
Embattled MSNBC host Joy Reid has finally come clean regarding offensive posts written on her blog more than a decade ago.
“While I published my blog, stating in 2005, I wrote thousands of posts in real time on issues of the day,” she said in a statement. “There are things I deeply regret and am embarrassed by, things I would have said differently and issues where my position has changed. Today I’m sincerely apologizing again.”
Tacitly admitted is the fact that Reid herself wrote the posts, which she recently denied in an apology, claiming that her blog had been hacked.
The host of far-left MSNBC’s “AM Joy” is apologizing for the second time in nearly a month after old posts surfaced in which Reid disparaged Sen. John McCain, questioned whether Al-Qaeda was behind the 9/11 attacks, and suggested that Israel should not be a sovereign nation.
