Donald Trump Jr. attacks Joy Reid for criticizing his dad -- and it backfires spectacularly
Donald Trump Jr. gets interviewed by WTAE in Pennsylvania (Screen cap).

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.

She noted Trump's exclusion of immigrants when speaking of family values.

And concluded:

Donald Trump Jr. has yet to respond.
