Joy Reid slaps down ‘p*ssy grabbing’ Trump for complaining about Jay Z’s language at Hillary rally
MSNBC host Joy Reid had a few sharp words for Donald Trump on Saturday morning after the GOP presidential nominee complained to a predominately white crowd about language used by hip hop superstar Jay Z at a rally for Hillary in Cleveland on Friday night.
At the Cleveland rally, Jay Z appeared with his his wife Beyoncé, and urged voters to turn out on Tuesday and elect Clinton over Trump. During his talk before the overflow crowd, the hip hop star swore several times which apparently offended the delicate sensibilities of the GOP nominee.
“I actually like Jay Z,” Trump told rally goers in Tampa, Saturday morning.”But, you know, the languages last night. He used every word in the book. I won’t even use the initials, because I’ll get in trouble.”
“They’ll get me in trouble,” Trump added, indicating the press covering him.
After showing the clip of Trump speaking, Reid had a few things to say.
“Now, Donald Trump has a problem with Jay Z’s language, okay?” Reid began. “Because Jay Z is a hip hop guy. I want to remind America, the guy who has a problem with Jay Z’s language? This is his language.”
Reid proceeded to show the infamous Access Hollywood clip of Trump telling host Billy Bush how, as a celebrity, he felt free to grab women “by the p*ssy.”
“Jay Z has said a lot of things in his songs, but he’s never said that, Donald Trump,” Reid continued before referencing an article in XXL earlier this week, where rap pioneer Luther Campbell — who once faced obscenity charges in Florida — spoke about attending a party at Trump’s house.
According to the 2 Live Crew founder, “Me, Mike Tyson and Eddie Murphy, we were invited to [Trump’s] mansion in West Palm Beach one time. And he had all these women running around. It was so much going on to the point that I couldn’t take what was going in that room and I left.”
According to Campbell, “It was some wild things going on. It was some things I can’t even say over this radio.”
Reid concluded, “We should perhaps talk to Melania, who wants to have this campaign against cyber-bullying — which she can begin at home at the dinner table.”
