MSNBC’s Joy Reid Under Fire for ‘Appalling’ Steve Scalise Comments


MSNBC’s “AM Joy” host Joy Reid is receiving criticism for attacking the politics of House majority whip Steve Scalise, who is still in the hospital after a gunman opened fired last week on the GOP Congressional baseball team.

“It’s a delicate thing because, obviously everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers. But Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said over the weekend.

Reid continued: “He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a White nationalists event, which he says he didn’t know what it was. Because he is in jeopardy and everyone is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside?”

While Reid was making these comments, an on-screen graphic showed Scalise’s record highlighting his more polarizing decisions, such as sponsoring a bill to define marriage as between a man and a women.

The MSNBC host also sent out a tweet that said, “Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet …”

On Monday, Fox News media guru Howie Kurtz was still upset about Reid’s comments, calling her “appalling.”

“While Steve Scalise remains in a hospital bed fighting for his life, she’s attacking him because she doesn’t like his politics,” Kurtz said. “For Joy Reid to tweet that Scalise was attacked by a white man… why bring race into it?”

The Hill media columnist Joe Concha made a prediction about the situation, “Here’s how the Joy Reid thing unfolds: She goes viral for profoundly reckless/myopic Scalise tweet. Blowback ensues. Forced apology follows.”

Scalise is a terrible human being.

11. She Said the Obvious and it Wasn't Taken Well

She should have used code words and been covert like alt righters do.
