A panel on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” found the glowing reviews by Fox News’ hosts of Donald Trump’s disastrous speech on July Fourth to be a source of amusement on Sunday morning — with one guest noting even the Russians panned the president.
Host Joy Reid kicked off the proceedings by running clips of Fox personalities calling Trump’s rain-soaked patriotic extravaganza “beautiful” and “incredible” while also complaining that “many of his critics said he’s going to make it all about him.”
Following a clip of Fox’s Jeanine Pirro ranting about reactions to Trump’s speech — which contained some widely-mocked historical inaccuracies about airports during the Revolutionary War — host Reid smirked and addressed her guests.
“That was the reaction Donald Trump wanted for the event he dreamed of in the last two years,” she explained. “The only major network to cover the network wall-to-wall dedicating a two-hour block for his campaign event and expose the anti-American core of the modern left.”
“He even got mocked by the Russians,” Reid continued while laughing. “Even the Russians — they mocked him. They said it was low energy, using his own insults. How does his staff keep that away from him so he doesn’t find out?”
Washington Post conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin chimed in to snark, “It’s hard when the home office gets upset with you,” at which point the entire panel started laughing once again.
Neo-Nazi ‘Atomwaffen Division’ holding live-fire militia training exercises at ‘The Base’: report
One sign of the growing white nationalist crisis in America is a new outreach effort for paramilitary training.
"A neo-Nazi group focused on providing paramilitary-style training to far-right extremists has been conducting a massive recruitment drive and claims to have already conducted live-fire training with its members," Vice News reports.
"The Base, which is connected to extreme-right groups the Atomwaffen Division and the Feuerkrieg Division, has been promoting its growth on social media with photos announcing its presence in major cities across North America, including New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, and in Europe, South Africa, and Australia," Vice reported. "The images often include a small contingent (typically one to three) of masked, camo-clad men holding weapons standing in front of The Base's flag, a black flag with three white lines running down the centre."

‘Not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists’: Native American Congresswoman
One of the first two Native America women blasted President Donald Trump for siding with white nationalists on Saturday.
Following the fatal "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Trump claimed there were "fine people" on both sides when he defended the alt-Right and Neo-Nazi event.
Two years later, Trump has gone even further, blaming only the anti-fascist activists confronting far-right marching in Portland, Oregon in a way that reminds many of the invasion of Charlottesville.
Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) was asked about Trump's tweet by CNN's Ana Cabrera.
