MSNBC’s Joy Reid went off on President Donald Trump for his claim this week that three million people, registered in two states, voted illegally in both.
“Look, this is a guy who loves conspiracy theories,” Reid said, noting that it is odd to have an American president who peddles such theories. “He’s now listening to some crank talk about his theory — it just so happens, not only were there 3 million — exactly the number Trump loses by — but all of them voted for Hillary Clinton.”
Reid said that according to Phillips and Trump, it isn’t a case where 3 million people could have voted illegally and they voted for a variety of candidates. Rather, according to this theory, every single one of them voted for Clinton over Trump.
“We have a country that is near the bottom in the western world for voter turnout,” Reid continued. “We can’t get people to vote once, but somehow, just Hillary Clinton managed to get some 3 million people to vote multiple times, only for her but she wasn’t savvy enough to make them do it in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.”
Coincidently, 3 million people is the number by which Trump lost the popular vote.

AG Bill Barr will ‘try to interfere’ in the 2020 election to re-elect Trump: MSNBC national affairs analyst
Attorney General William Barr will use the Department of Justice to "try to interfere" in the 2020 presidential election to re-elect Donald Trump, MSNBC's national affairs analyst predicted on Tuesday.
John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."
"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.
"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.
Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all
Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.
And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.
United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal
The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.
However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
