Donald Trump Jr. is going after Joy Reid over comments she made criticizing the president’s State of the Union address. The MSNBC host denounced the “1950s-era nationalism” President Trump presented Tuesday night. “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem,” Reid tweeted, calling the way Trump presented the concepts as “terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for.”

The president’s eldest son, who Americans were told was not going to be a part of his father’s political machine, hit back at Reid, falsely claiming those concepts are institutions “the left hates.”

But Reid was just getting started.

One by one she supported her criticisms with details, examples, and facts.

Reid went on to criticize the president for his hypocrisy on those ideals, including the recent revelation Trump allegedly had a year-long affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels, which some say is why the First Lady arrived separately from her husband Tuesday night.

“Trump is putting on a show,” Reid noted, “allowing his base to reminisce about an Ozzie and Harriet past they don’t even really value anymore,” she said.

The study, which examined homicide rates by state from 1990 to 2016, suggests that most forms of homicide — those committed against friends, acquaintances, and strangers — are negligibly affected by firearm ownership rates. But one particular category of homicide is sharply correlated with the presence of guns: domestic violence.

House conservatives are livid after President Donald Trump struck a budget deal with Democrats.

"You should veto this bill because it is fiscally irresponsible," the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Trump. "It blows well beyond what was intended with the 2011 [Budget Control Act] caps. Furthermore, it continues spending hundreds of billions more than what we take in a year and does not put our nation on a path towards a balanced budget."

The effort is being driven by first-term Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).

"As the greatest nation in the history of the world, the least we can do is cut a deal that does not sabotage the fiscal future of our nation while endangering millions of American and migrants because of our porous border," the lawmakers wrote. "We can do better."
