If you know anything about Joy Reid you know that watching her doesn’t make you smarter. In fact, you can make the argument it kills brain cells. She’s simply not a serious person. There are liberals on TV and then there are liberals like Joy Reid on TV. Joy has no interest in moving the conversation forward. She has no interest in uniting people. Joy Reid just wants to destroy Trump. That’s it. That’s her goal.
It’s funny because when Obama was president Joy Reid would constantly tell us that we shouldn’t question him and she would take his side on an issue almost 100% of the time.
Now that Trump is president. It’s the opposite.
She went on TV over the weekend and basically accused Trump of striking Syria simply to shift the news cycle.
Saturday’s “AM Joy” on MSNBC opened with host Joy Reid discussing the week’s events, including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly preparing to be fired, the upcoming release of former FBI Director Jim Comey’s book, special counsel Bob Mueller’s Michael Cohen raid and the military strikes on Syria.
According to Reid, media have the “obligation” to ask if President Trump was partly motivated to strike Syria Friday to distract from the other news.
“[T]he Syrian attacks, which for many Americans raised real questions about the legal authority for the strikes and also about whether even a part of the president’s motivation was all that other news that just kept on coming yesterday,” Reid stated. “These are serious questions that we in the media have an obligation to ask however uncomfortable because they will be asked by our friends and our foes around the world.”
So Donald Trump bombed Syria because he didn’t want people to talk about Stormy Daniels anymore? How dumb do you have to be to believe that?
It’s nice that Joy all of a sudden decided to start holding politicians accountable. It’s too bad we didn’t see much of that from her during the Obama years.
You know what’s scary? Joy Reid actually gets decent ratings.
From The Wrap:
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid achieved a major milestone to start the year, overtaking her Saturday rivals at CNN in the quarterly ratings for the first time since her show launched on May 7, 2016.
It is actually the first time MSNBC has beaten CNN on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-noon ET in the key 25-54 demo in almost 16 years. On Saturday mornings, the overall “AM Joy” audience has jumped a whopping 33 percent from the comparable quarter last year. The MSNBC show is up 27 percent in the key demo on Saturdays, quarter-to-date.
Granted, beating CNN isn’t very difficult but you would think that her race-baiting and unfair attacks against the president would keep her in the ratings basement.
But, this is kind of how the left operates now when it comes to cable news. They just grandstand and promote conspiracy theories that they know their liberal audience will eat up. That’s exactly what Reid does and it seems to be working.
